How Do I Remove Smells From My Car?

Your car should be thoroughly assessed with the qualified detailers at Rapid Mobile Auto Detailing.The first step to identify and locate all source areas where mould or the source of smell is, before any treatment and remediation is carried out.

Removal and repair of all source issues is the key to successful treatment and permanent eradication of mould, bacteria and smells from your car.

What ozone does:

O2 (oxygen) is converted to O3 (ozone), a “dry gas”, through ozone generators onsite, then dispersed into the car filling the entire airspace, including glove box and all compartments. The third atom of the O3 (ozone) gas splits off and attaches to the airborne offending organisms, oxidising and destroying them by completely breaking them down.

Ozone Treatment


Depending on the severity of mould or smell contamination inside your car, a structured ozone treatment plan will be quoted, specific for your car, to remove contamination from the air space and surfaces.

The ozone treatment is performed using an ozone generator. Typically, this process is done by sending specific-wavelength UV light at oxygen. The generator will be placed outside the vehicle and ducted into the vehicle for as long as necessary to remove any odour and mould. Ozone odour removal is permanent, provided you have removed the source of the smell. Our detailer will thoroughly clean your car before the ozone treatment. It’s important to make sure that the cause of any smell is taken care of. In the case of moldmildew, we make sure we have dealt with the source of the dampness as well.
