Is the air in my car polluted? Clean air in the car? Is it possible?
This is a question which bothers many people especially those with small children. Unfortunately, most of us live in big cities where the air is more like to be polluted. Changing the cabin air filter is not enough. We bet that even immediately after you change it you can notice certain smells or you can even feel that the air is heavy.
Does the cabin filter protect me from viruses, bacteria, pollen, and harmful substances?
A major problem is that viruses, bacteria, and pollen which are floating in the air can’t be caught by the cabin filter because it’s not a HEPA filter. Therefore, it’s capable of caching just the bigger particles and dust. The other problem which is quite neglected is the fact that the air conditioning system in your car is a paradise for bacteria and mold.
Sore or runny nose while driving?
Maybe if you live in a hot country where you need to use the air conditioner more often you’ve noticed that after driving on long distances the air gets too dry. This might lead to runny or sore nose and even to an infection of your respiratory system.
Smoking in the car
Smokers quite often smoke in their cars. The cigarettes smoke leaves a bad and long-lasting smell in the cabin. But its also an air polluter which affects not only the smoker himself but the passengers.
