Keeping your car fresh inside during Oregon’s rainy season can be a challenge.
Oregon’s cold, wet winters use your vehicle to prove that the laws of physics are constantly at work. Condensation is taking place and you may not even be aware of it. Not only are water and debris tracked in and out of the vehicle’s interior, but interior moisture is attracted naturally. This moisture hides behind your vehicle’s interior panels, and in the trunk area. Condensation is always taking place: that equates to mold and mildew.
Combat the moisture during sunny spring days by opening all of the windows, the doors and trunk so the outside air and sun can evaporate those moist areas.
Be sure to pull your floor mats, trunk floor mat and spare tire cover (If the cover is floor mounted). Let the vehicle air out as long as possible. Do be aware of stray cats or dogs looking for a temporary home in your vehicle. Airing out your vehicle will dry our any condensation, minimize molding and increase the life of your interior. Nature adds the bonus of a fresh Spring scent throughout your car.
