Are You Driving Around
in a Mold Sick Car?
March 2, 2012. My husband bought a 2008 Mazda 3 about 8 months ago. Since
then he has been plagued by serious allergies. We finally determined the
car to be the cause of the allergies. Do you do mold removal from
automobiles? If not any advice on how to do it or who in the Los Angeles
area does? I appreciate your help.
Your vehicle having a mold problem is a common occurrence harming driver
and passenger health because of the large number of hours that drivers and
passengers spend inside the small, enclosed environment breathing in
elevated levels of airborne mold spores. In addition to the car mold
problem, it is likely that the driver and passenger are tracking airborne
mold spores from the car into the house from mold spores landed/deposited
on their hair, skin, clothing, shoes, and hat. Your first step should be
to mold test the interior air of the car (with the windows up), as well as
the outward air flow from the car's heating/air conditioning duct
registers. If there is a car mold problem, there is going to be mold
growth hidden inside the vehicle's heating/cooling equipment and ducts.
You can use do it yourself
mold test kits. After testing or in place of testing, take these car
mold remediation steps. First, scrub the entire car interior,
including upholstery and carpeting several times with a hand-held, hard
bristle scrub brush soaked with the very effective mold remover boric acid
powder. You can read the boric mix formula and buy boric at
Mold Mart. You should also put boric mix into a spray bottle and
spray a significant amount of the mix into each of the car's heating/air
con duct registers. The final step is the most powerful to kill car mold
spores, mold growth, and mold toxins: use our home model Bio3Blaster high
ozone generator to inject high volumes of ozone gas into the car's
heating/cooling ducts and into the car interior. You should also apply the
above car mold removal procedures to the inside of the vehicle's trunk. As
to your husband's mold allergy problems, please read about available
diagnostic and treatment procedures in my ebook

Car, Truck, and Vehicle Mold Problem
Toxic mold has forced
families from their homes and students from their schools; but if you
think you're safe from spores behind the wheel -- think again. What you
don't know about your car could actually be hazardous to your health.
Regardless of its make or model, your vehicle could have a problem with
mold. Since you can't always see it, though, you might not know you have
a problem until you start to feel the effects.
"It's awful, it really is... sneezing,
coughing, my nose starts burning severely."

Rob Simpson bought his
new truck last year for $35,000. Though he says he likes the way it
looks and drives, he doesn't like the way it smells -- "a real musty
Simpson says his problem started with a water leak -- and then another.
"The first time it leaked... from the bed into the carpeting," Simpson
adds, "the carpeting was totally soaked. The second time it leaked, it
poured out of this headliner button right... it was literally like a
The truck has been back to the dealer eight times in six months, leaving
Simpson with a pile of repair bills and a car his wife and daughter
won't ride in.
Consumer attorney Craig Kimmel says the Simpsons aren't alone. "We see
it as a trend," explains Kimmel. "Now with the design of new cars, the
air tightness for efficiency and gas mileage and the aerodynamics of
vehicles -- it's made them much more tight -- and just like homes, mold
problems have arisen as a result."
Kimmel says it's a problem that manufacturers must "absolutely" address.
"The operating conditions of a vehicle under
warranty requires the manufacturer to make repairs. A car should not
have a moldy condition either through the air conditioning or heating
systems for any reason."
-- Craig Kimmel, Consumer Attorney
Kimmel says bacteria,
fungus, mold and spores can trigger allergy and asthma attacks that can
severely affect the use of your car -- and should be treated like any
other defect that can't be fixed. "Under warranty it's the
manufacturer's responsibility to make sure that the dealer's work
actually results in a repair."
"I don't care if you spend $5,000 or
$30,000... I think people should be responsible for what they sell."
-- Elaine Simpson
The Simpsons have had
their carpet replaced three times and the car deodorized, but the moldy
Attorney Kimmel says if the problem isn't fixed after three tries,
consumers can seek relief under the Lemon Law or under the federal
