Cleaning your evaporator using a good quality coil cleaner will normally eradicate mould and mildew. You should also use an anti-bacterial cleaner to remove any harmful germs from the system. Running the defrost mode regularly will help to keep your air conditioner dry and prevent further issues.
Another common cause of weak airflow is that the blower hose has come loose, meaning that air is not passing through the evaporator into the cabin. There could also be a problem with one of the multiple seals in the system, which need to remain tightly closed to ensure air is able to pass through. Hoses and seals should only ever be repaired or replaced by a professional technician.
The cabin filter, also called a pollen filter, is typically located before your blower motor and acts a filtration system between the outside air and the cabin of your car. Any pollens, dirt and leaves or just general road debris gets stopped at the cabin filter to ensure your passengers are only breathing clean air. Cabin filters do not last forever and should be changed every 20,000 km.
The ventilation fan is responsible for blowing air over the evaporator unit, which is cooled by the refrigerant before entering the cabin. If airflow is weak or non-existent, the fan may be damaged and will need to be replaced for normal operation to resume.
