People go to great lengths to keep their cars clean and shiny on the outside. However, the inside of the vehicle also needs as much, if not more attention. Mold, a type of fungus, can occur in the interiors of the car if not maintained correctly, and this mold can cause a musty odor in your car or even health issues.

If you’ve developed a case of mold in your vehicle and are thinking of cleaning it yourself, we strongly suggest that you reconsider! When it comes to car mold and odor, it’s better to get them removed professionally to save time, money, and unnecessary work. Car detailing experts have the right products and tools to get the job done and can avoid the possibility of damaging your car’s interior. However, if you’re still adamant about doing the job yourself, the experts at Phase II Auto Detailing suggest that you consider these two reasons why you shouldn’t DIY cleaning up mold or odor in your car.

1. You create a safety hazard
Cleaning things like mold by yourself can expose you and your family to a lot of toxins. Professionals in the field are experts at what they do and have the necessary knowledge and equipment to protect themselves during mold exposure or any other hazardous substances.

2. Do-overs are expensive
By going the DIY way, you might actually have to pay more to fix the bigger mess it will cause. Mold buildup or anything else that causes an odor means there’s a lot of bacterial growth in your car. If it’s not removed professionally and efficiently, it will come back with a vengeance that will cause you to spend more money to fix it than if you had brought the vehicle to us in the first place.

Do things right - Hire a professional
If interior cleaning isn’t done correctly, many things can go wrong, especially if you aren’t 100% sure about what you’re doing. On the other hand, a professional is certified and knows what they need to do in the event of mold and odor issues. They also have the training, skills, and equipment to get the job done right. While this may mean that professional services cost more, nothing beats getting the job done right the first time!
