Put activated carbon filtration between what’s outside and the air you breathe inside your car — for improved filtering have mechanic replace paper cabin filters with activated carbon filters

AsthmaMoms has been successfully using this very quiet efficient HEPA air purifier since 9/11; low maintenance; wheels allow you to roll it from room to room; replacement filters cost $79/set; price varies by size; warranty for 10 years

Cabin filters are a recent innovation in vehicle compartment comfort, keeping pollen, spores, road dust and soot from entering into the vehicle. Periodic cabin filter replacement is necessary in order to allow clean air flow through the vehicle’s ventilation system enabling the vehicle.s defrost, heating and air-conditioning systems to operate at the peak.

The MicroAirScreen utilizes a single layer non-entraining repulsive screening material which does not get clogged with dirt and pollen like a mat type air conditioner filter. It stays efficient and does not require cleaning for long periods of time, around once or twice a year.

AsthmaMoms used this successfully to cover faulty exhaust vent that was blowing air into apartment instead of removing it — successfully prevented unwanted dust & odors from entering apartment, 3 sheets approx. $10 + shipping + tax
