MOULD ON CAR SEATS
Should you use a seat that has had mould on it even after it’s been washed?
Short answer: NO!!!!
Long answer: Still NO!!!! But why?
•Despite how much you clean seats that have been infected by mould, it will return.
•Mould causes respiratory issues that can be life threatening.
•Mould causes skin flare up & reactions especially to those with sensitive skin, prone to psoriasis and dermatitis.
•Mould causes health risks including respiratory and skin irritations, lung infections, asthma, nasal congestion, wheezing, fever, and shortness of breath.
•Once mould is on your seat trims & harness the effectiveness of the restraint cannot be guaranteed as mould breaks down fibres.
Who is at greatest risk of health problems from contact with mould?
People with asthma, allergies, or other breathing conditions may be more sensitive to mould. People with weakened immune systems (such as people with HIV infection, cancer patients taking chemotherapy or people who have received an organ transplant) and with chronic lung diseases (such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and emphysema) are more at risk of mould infection particularly in their lungs.
Cleaning products such as bleaches, oils, vinegar, or products designed to clean mould my products must not be used on car seats.
The only best option for seats like the one pictured is to stop use immediately and purchase brand new seats.
