Anyone who has allergies knows that the end of spring doesn’t mean the end of suffering. Most people know that spending time outside can trigger allergies, but many don’t know that the air inside their car can have up to ten times the amount of pollutants than the air outside. This can include harmful bacteria, dirt, pollens, fungus and the ever present summer dust.
These contaminants in the air can pass unfiltered into the passenger cabin, along with the air intake and can trigger asthma, allergies, headaches, nausea, fatigue and giddiness, none of which make for a safe or comfortable car trip for you or your family.
Fortunately, there are a few ways you can protect against these pollutants. One is to ask your local Repco Authorised Service centre to check your cabin air filter. There is a cabin air filter fitted to most vehicles built since the late 1990's.
