    Try to replace the cabin air filter if it equipped with one. There is a professional heater / evaporator box cleaner available from shops, which removes dirt and mold. Ask your shop if they offer this service.

    Cabin air filter is behind the glove box. Try replacing the filter, clearing debris and spraying Lysol or other disinfectant spray in the air ducts.
