What does the A/C system cleaning do?

Vehicle air conditioning systems remove moisture from the air. This moisture can combine with airborne debris and settle in the system evaporator, leading to growth of mould spores and fungi. This, in turn, leads to foul-smelling air being blown into the vehicle. These contaminants can potentially cause allergic reactions in vehicle owners.

Wessex Garages AirCon treatment has been formulated to quickly and effectively remove foul, musty odours from vehicle air conditioning systems. It will freshen foul-smelling systems by killing odour-smelling organisms and incorporates biocide, anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-spore and anti-fungal properties. A powerful deodoriser works to keep the vehicle interior smelling clean and fresh.

Benefits of having air con refreshed

Removes any bacteria and bad smells from the system, leaving the air clean and fresh

Why does my air conditioning need to be cleaned?

Your air conditioning system can become full of bacterial and fungal contamination. A refresh treatment disinfects the evaporator and air ducts safely and effectively.

What happens if it's not cleaned?

Bacterial build-up in the ventilation system not only smells bad, it leads to poor airflow. This means you breathe in bacteria and allergens which could irritate your eyes and nose.

What do we do?

Our experts technicians give you air conditioning system an ultrasonic anti-bacterial and odour treatment that eliminates microbial, fungal and bacterial contamination.

How often does it need to be cleaned?

Every 12 months.


Your air conditioning relies on a refrigerant gas to work properly. Around 10% of this gas can seep out of the air conditioning system each year. If there isn’t enough of this gas in the system, obviously the system won’t operate effectively. A greater risk is that it could potentially lead to internal system damage and the permanent failure of your air conditioning system. Our air conditioning service involves recharging the system with gas and lubricant as well as removing all moisture and debris, plus a full check of all system components. A recharged system will reduce your fuel consumption by putting less strain on the engine, while helping to keep you cool in summer and your windows clear in winter.
