Risks of Mold & Mildew

Did you know that, according to the latest Daily Ride Index, despite many new alternative forms of transit, the average American has seen a 12 percent increase in time spent in their car per week (from 9 hours and 43 minutes per week, to 10 hours and 50 minutes per week) from October 2018 to March 2019.

With how much time you spend in your car, you have to make sure you're not sitting exposed for hours each day. Protect yourself and your loved ones by taking care of your car. Overtime, the presence of mold and mildew in your car can cause serious health problems.

This includes cold like symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, skin irritation, a runny nose, nasal congestion, dry skin, and eyes that are itchy or watery. In some cases, people may have an allergic reaction, especially if they have asthma. Those with asthma who come into the presence of these spores may experience chest tightness, wheezing, coughing, or general shortness of breath, which can be especially difficult for young children.

Due to all of the recent flooding, there are thousands of drivers and families at risk. Whether your sun roof is leaking or your convertible top, water somehow got in and rotted your interior.
