    Can I Use "odor-killing" chemicals, deodorants, or ozone to get rid of moldy or other bad car smells?
    Generally we do not recommend car deodorants - they only cover up the smell, the do not get rid of the source. It will be back.

    Ozone generators produce ozone gas, a strong oxidant (and dangerous to breathe) that temporarily fills the car interior to try to "oxidize" or "kill" mold that your car cleaning company couldn't reach - such as sound insulation padding up high inside the front fire-wall of the car, under the dash board.

    Watch out: Be very careful if you're going to permit someone to ozone-treat your car. If the ozone treatment is over-done, the ozone can oxidize other car materials, causing a more horrible odor than ever. Details about over-dosing with ozone are found at OZONE for MOLD OR ODORS.

    Never done the forum thing - so if you would bare with me.
    Proud in owner of 2012 KIA Sportage. Just turned 4,000 miles on it. There is a mildew smell when climate control is on cool setting. Pulled the in car air filter completely blugged. Anyone else having the same problem? Thanks
