Protect Your Family from Allergy Causing Pollutants




You may think having the windows up in your car means that you are protected from air born contaminants. However, studies have found that the air inside our vehicles can have a much higher concentration of pollutants than the air just outside the vehicle – up to nine times in some cases. 

A number of harmful pollutants are found in the air inside your car, including:

  • Pollen
  • Fungus
  • Bacteria
  • Dirt
  • Dust

People with asthma, allergies and other respiratory problems are especially at risk when exposed to concentrations of these pollutants. These  contaminants can trigger asthma, allergies, headaches, nausea, fatigue and giddiness.

There is a cabin filter fitted to most vehicles built since the late 1990’s. Cabin air filters improve the quality of the air circulating inside your vehicle. To protect your family, you should make sure that they are changed every 10,000kms or at least once a year. When the cabin air filter clogs up with dirt and other contaminants, the airflow entering the vehicle’s interior is significantly reduced. Over time, the clogged filter can lead to musty odours as well as decreasing the filter’s performance. 

To protect family and friends traveling in your car ask the friendly team at Soutars Garage to check your cabin air filter at your next service.
