Helpful Hint:


    Once mold is growing in the vent ducts of the vehicle in can be difficult to remove. The best way to minimize any mold growth is to operate your air conditioner properly. Here's how:


Turn off your air conditioning 5 to 10 minutes before you get to your destination. This will allow the vent ducts and connecting hoses to dry out by warming up the ducts. Warm ducts will stop producing condensation and are dried out with the fresh air running through them.

    Mold grows extremely well in warm, dark, and damp places, requiring only three conditions to grow:

  • Moisture

  • An organic food source (e.g. dust)

  • The right humidity (greater than 60%)

  • Mold only needs moisture, moderately warm temperatures and an organic food source to grow.

  • Mold spores can travel through the air, causing the issue to spread into other areas rapidly.

  • Toxic mold can cause serious health issues such as chronic fatigue, chronic rhinitis and dermatitis.

  • The musty smell of mold is caused by Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds or MVOCS.

  • Mold spores in a high enough concentration can cause reactions even in people without allergies.

Important Note About Ozone Shock Treatment

The source of any odor must be removed before ozone treatment. If the smell source is not removed (e.g. garbage, mold, dead rodents, etc.), no amount of ozone can eliminate these odors completely. The treatment areas must also be properly cleaned for ozone shock treatment to work properly.

    Often found in warm, moist spots such as bathrooms or kitchens, Toxic Mold can quickly become a very serious issue. If left untreated, mold can begin to colonize and reproduce billions of spores in as little as 48 hours. This can cause serious and even life threatening illness in humans and animals. It can also leave a very strong and musty odor.


    Mold can also cause structural damage to buildings which can lower the value of property or render it completely uninhabitable. Ozone can disrupt molds ability to reproduce, stopping it from spreading and eradicating the odor.
