The Science
of Smell

There are many different ways that odors can develop inside of your car and they can come from a variety of sources.

How Air Conditioning (A/C) Systems Develop Odors

    1. Microbial contaminants (bacteria, mold, fungus) are naturally present in your vehicle. Moisture, darkness, and warmth enable odors to develop.
    2. Some of the moisture that condenses on your evaporator remains in the dark plenum chamber. The naturally occurring microbial contaminants utilize the moisture that does not drain out of the A/C system as a food source & breeding ground.
    3. Once your air conditioner is off, the chamber warms up to a temperature that stimulates and accelerates microbial growth.

Once your vehicle provides a home for fungi, you will experience sporadic or continuous odors emanating from your A/C system.

How Vehicle Interior Odors Develop

    • Vehicle interior odors are usually found to emanate from one of the following:

    • flood/leak damage (a mildew or musty smell)
    • beverage spills
    • previous cleaning operations where the interior was not allowed to completely dry
    • vomit
    • urine
    • pet odors
    • perspiration

Odor molecules from these organic sources can get trapped in the fibers of carpet or other interior fabric items, or in any tightly enclosed space.

You don’t want to be in an enclosed area with these potentially unhealthy irritants. The Odor Doctors removes these types of odors, leaving you with a healthier environment in your vehicle.
