Are you ready to bring your used car to the dealership for a trade in estimate or simply to sell it outright? Are the smells coming from your vehicle lowering your chances of getting a good payout? When there is a used car odor that does not clean up with a good wiping down of the surfaces, there is an option.
Start with a Good Cleaning
Look under the seats for forgotten fast food wrappers. These are the most common culprits when it comes to creating an unpleasant odor in your vehicle. Other common sources include forgotten socks, shoes or blankets used by animals. Next, vacuum the vehicle to remove animal hair and dust that may have trapped odor particles.
Elbow Grease Only Goes so Far
No amount of vacuuming will remove the stale cigarette smoke that has built up in the upholstery. Deodorizing sprays only mask it for a brief period of time. The same is true for the hot chocolate or baby bottle that your child spilled in the backseat. The smell of sour milk is next to impossible to mask.
In these situations, you need to eliminate the odor-causing molecules at the source. Ozone is the chemical-free option that does not leave behind any telltale smells of your attempts. The Rainbowair Activator Ozone Generator 1000 Series II with Auto Kit works well for this purpose. This ozone generator will work in any room, but with the auto kit accessory, you can ensure all of your vehicles and RV’s are always smelling their best and maintaining the most value possible
