Unfortunately the arrival of Spring doesn’t just mean beautiful weather and flowers!

It can also mean those in your family who suffer from allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems have to take extra precautions.

Studies have shown that the air inside our vehicles has been found to have a much higher concentration of pollutants than in the air just outside the vehicle – up to 10 times in some cases. Contaminants in the air such as pollen, fungus spores, dirt and dust pass unfiltered into the passenger cabin, along with the air intake and can trigger asthma, allergies, headaches, nausea, fatigue and giddiness.

There are a number of ways that you can protect the health of family and friends travelling with you.

The first is to ask us to check your cabin air filter. There is a cabin air filter fitted to most vehicles built since the late 1990’s. you can learn more about Cabin Air Filters here http://www.motoringabout.com/cabin-air-filters-video/

These filters are designed to reduce the amount of harmful contaminants entering into your vehicle via the heating ventilation and air conditioning system, whilst providing a much cleaner breathing environment for you and your passenger. It also helps keep the interior of your vehicle cleaner due to reduced dust entering the cabin, along with protecting vehicle occupants from harmful gases such as exhaust and ozone.

The second way to improve the quality of the air you breathe inside your vehicle is to ask Auto Stop about one of the effective treatments that can be applied directly to the vents of your air conditioning units to eliminate harmful bacteria and odours already lurking in the system.
