Regular cleaning and sanitising an air conditioner is crucial for a cleaner, healthier environment and improved air quality. Fungi, mould, mildew, human DNA, pet dander and a lot of nasty particles can accumulate inside the system and cause health concerns for your family. These microbial pollutants are dispersed inside your home everytime you turn on your unit, and cause allergic reactions to you and your family. To prevent these contaminants from invading, you need to banish them from your air conditioner unit.
Here are the 5 Nasties from Your Air Conditioner
Mould grows when there is moisture from high humidity or a spill or leak that is left unclean. Since an air conditioner’s function is to spread cool or hot air throughout the room, the mould spores will be distributed across the space and your home will become contaminated. The best way to deal with this problem is to control the moisture and prevent it from happening again by contacting a HydroKleen Technician.
If your filter is clogged, dirty, or overexposed to moisture, mildew will start to grow. Mildew growth also happens when your drip pan is clogged. If your air conditioner unit smells like mildew, it is time to contact a Certified and Qualified HydroKleen Wet Wash Specialist Technician to ensure that the smell doesn’t keep coming back.
Fungi are the indoor air’s most important bioaerosol component associated with contaminated air conditioning systems. Indoor fungi may cause allergies and asthma. Drains pans, cooling coils, and water pans are the most common fungal growth locations when there is standing water. If you are facing this kind of problem with your AC system, you need a deep and thorough clean of your AC unit.
Rain and hot temperatures are turning air conditioners into breeding grounds for bacteria. Like mold, bacteria can also thrive on moisture. When found in heavy concentrations, bacteria can cause asthma, allergies, and other breathing difficulties.
#5 Human DNA and Skin Cells
Humans shed dead skin cells per day as the skin renews itself, and such skin cells become dust inside the home. When the dust becomes part of your air conditioner’s airflow, it will accumulate and affect the cooling process, increases energy usage, and decreases indoor air quality.
