AIR CONDITIONING UNIT ANTI BACTERIAL TREATMENT
BEAT THE BUG'S!
LATEST SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
SHOWS BUGS BREEDING IN YOUR CAR COULD BE UNDERMINING YOUR
The nose often picks up what the eye doesn't see. Ask any
motorist who has chugged through the low-lying ozone that
giftwraps urban jams, often given extra intensity by a stiflingly
Traffic pollution is a mostly invisible enemy to which
your nose, throat and lungs are most sensitive. Little wonder,
then, that most cars come with air conditioning, either
as a standard feature or a good value option to counteract
the effects of this invisible assault on your senses.
Yet recent scientific studies carried out in America reveal
a more worrying hazard.
Those very air conditioning systems, designed to keep the
driving environment cool and clear, act like a Trojan horse.
For the alarming truth is that, among your car's insulation
material and within the deep recesses of its air conditioning
system, lies a hidden enemy: a colony of microscopic bacteria
breeding and assaulting your senses with airborne particles.
Thousands of motorists suffer the symptoms each day. In
worst cases, the effects of the bacteria aggravate allergic
reactions, causing runny noses, sore throats and asthma-like
Effectively, it is the automotive equivalent of
sick building syndrome.
The bacteria, along with mould and fungi, flourish in the
build-up of condensation produced by a car's air conditioning
system. That means more motorists than ever are at risk,
as the number of new cars in the UK fitted with air conditioning
reaches record levels of almost 750.000 per year.
CAN COUNTERACT URBAN POLLUTION SEEPING INTO A CAR'S INTERIOR
BUT THAT COULD MAKE MATTERS WORSE.
The findings arose from research into unexplained
odours in vehicles, which are often put down to something
in the carpet and upholstery or perhaps the family dog.
The AA has been conducting its own investigation and its
head of technical policy, John Stubbs, has said that:
"Air conditioning needs regular servicing by technicians
who know what they are doing and who use manufacturer recommendations
biocides to clean out the system properly."
"When a bad smell occurs, the car's owner needs
to be certain that the air conditioning system is purged
properly or the problem can return."
The majority of car manufacturers recommend that air conditioning
units should be cleaned professionally at least once a year
with a special disinfectant treatment.
This should be applied to the heater matrix and ventilation
ducting to penetrate the build-up of dirt inside and to
remove any germs, mildew or or unpleasant smells. Treatment
usually takes no longer than 30 minutes.
Have you noticed
musty or foul odours upon entering your car or switching
on the heating or air-conditioning?
Have you suffered from sore throats, flu-like symptoms
or allergic reactions?
If so, this could be caused by the year round build up
of germs, bacteria, mould, spores and fungi within your
During summer or winter your
vehicle's air-conditioning and heating system will generate
condensation. This environment provides an ideal breeding
ground for germs, bacteria, spores, mould and fungi.
So whether you're cooling in summer or heating in winter,
contaminated particles will be blown into the vehicle passenger
Wurth's patented, approved Disinfection System:
- Operates at high pressure to penetrate and flush all
areas of the air conditioning matrix.
- Removes mould, spores, fungi and culture medium where
illness aggravating bacteria thrive.
Fact: A car with air-conditioning has
up to 10,000,000 more micro-organisms in the heating system
than a normal car. These micro-organisms, due to their
size, can pass through filters with little difficulty.
- Neutralises musty smells and bad odours.
- Complies with manufacturer recommendations by disinfecting
and protecting against bacterial re-growth for up to 1
- Provides the ideal environment for you and your passengers.
