Easy Tips to Put More Joy in Your Ride

Stick with the A/C

A fresh breeze may feel nice, but it can also allow hitchhiking pollen spores to blow into your car. Keep the windows rolled up and use the air conditioner instead. Be sure to set the A/C on the recirculating cycle so you don’t pull pollen in from the outside.

Filter Smart

A clogged air filter can do the opposite of what it’s supposed to do and blow allergens into your car. So be sure to check and change your cabin air filter often.

Think Twice About Fabrics

Keep it Clean

From pollen blowing into your car to dust mites hitching a ride on your clothes and transferring to your seats, common allergens can build up quickly in your vehicle. Be sure to vacuum regularly with a HEPAX HEPA

Don’t Neglect Your Car’s Exterior

Pollen that settles on the outside of your car can be brought inside when you brush against the surface. Wash your car frequently to help reduce pollen buildup and keep your wheels looking shiny and new.
