Banish these 5 Nasties from Your Air Conditioner

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

#1 Mould

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.

#2 Mildew

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.

#3 Fungi

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.

#4 Bacteria

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.

3 Questions to Ask Before Booking An AC Cleaning Company

There is always a need for regular cleaning and maintenance of your air conditioner unit for its efficient working. While you can DIY your air filters every three months, you need a professional and certified technician to regularly clean your unit’s internal components, such as the Barrel Fan, Coil, and Drain. If you neglect the maintenance of your AC unit, it can result in reduced cooling capacity and possible damage to the unit.

When looking to book an Air Conditioner cleaning company to clean and sanitise your AC, it is easy to get caught up in the commercial ads forgetting to ask some important questions to ensure that you are dealing with a professional company.

Before you decide on the AC cleaning company, do careful research. There are plenty of companies you can choose from, and only a few worthy of your attention. Here are a few questions you need to ask before booking a company:

#1 Do you offer a Guarantee?

You don’t want to book a clean and then find out that the work was done badly and you have no recourse. Your air conditioning cleaning company should be willing to stand behind the work and guarantee it.

Not only does this help to ensure that the clean is carried out right the very first time, it offers you some reassurance when the job does not live up to your satisfaction. This way, you’ll have recourse if something goes wrong and the problem will get fixed.

#2 Is your Technician trained and certified?

Hire a trained and certified Technician such as a HydroKleen ACWWA Certified Wet Wash Specialist Technician is key. ACWWA certified technicians are professionally trained to assess your Air Conditioner and provide a high-quality Wet Wash cleaning service.

ACWWA Certified Technicians clean to ACWWA’S HVAC Wet Wash Guidelines for Ductless Split Systems. The certification reflects our assurance to you that the job is being carried out by technicians with the proper training and equipment.

#3 What equipment are you using?

Ask the company you intend to engage – what equipment will you use to clean my Air Conditioner?  Choosing an Air Conditioning Cleaning company that uses equipment that is ‘fit for purpose’ means their equipment has been designed and manufactured to specifically clean Air Conditioners – not your car or the concrete driveway!!!.  Why?  Equipment specifically designed and manufactured to clean an Air Conditioner has been built with that purpose in mind… the correct water pressure and volume of water to efficiently clean and remove all the bio-toxic matter and pollutants that accumulate in an Air Conditioner.  HydroKleen proudly manufactures their ‘fit for purpose’ equipment in Queensland, Australia.

Protecting your home and your family’s health are your top priorities. Regular air conditioner cleaning is part of that protection. Use these questions to make an informed decision before you book an AC cleaning company.

What is Indoor Air Quality and Its Impact on Health

Indoor Air Quality or IAQ refers to the air quality within and around homes and buildings. Indoor Air Quality relates specifically to building occupants’ health, comfort, and well-being, with poor Indoor Air Quality linked to different health problems. You and your family may experience the health effect of bad indoor air quality soon after exposure or years later.

The Effect of Indoor Air Quality on Your Health

Irritants and pollutants in the air have become common since the industrial revolution. In the present times, such irritants and pollutants have been decreased, thus improving air quality outdoor. However, air indoors is as important as air outdoors. If outdoor pollutants can cause several respiratory problems, indoor pollutants can do the same too.

Concentrations of pollutants are five times higher indoors, according to EPA. People who have pre-existing conditions, small children, and the elderly are at greater risk for experiencing health problems related to pollutants. These health problems include but are not limited to respiratory diseases, cancer, heart diseases, headaches, nose, eye, and throat irritation.

The Common Indoor Pollutants

One of the most common indoor pollutants is carbon monoxide. Cars are not the only ones giving off carbon monoxide, but also other things you can find inside your home. For example, a fireplace can release carbon monoxide into the air.

Another indoor pollutant is Mould. Mould can be found in places like bathrooms and your Air Conditioner, because of a high level of moisture. In addition, older homes may have paint containing lead and asbestos.

Other indoor pollutants include dust mites, bacteria, and outdoor contaminants that can travel indoors easily, like pollen.

Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Keeping your Air Conditioner clean is just as important as servicing your car or vacuuming your carpets! It is often overlooked yet a key component in how healthy and hygienic your Indoor Air Quality is.

Clean your filters regularly throughout the year, and book in an annual clean and sanitisation with a professional HVAC Cleaning & Sanitising Technician. Changing your filter regularly and an annual clean and sanitise will significantly reduce the number of pollutants within your home.

Maintaining your Air Conditioner regularly ensures that it is working at its optimum, reducing power costs and ensuring pollutants are removed so you and your family can Breathe Healthy Air™.

Choosing HydroKleen is choosing a professional Certified and Qualified Technician, using equipment specifically designed to clean Air Conditioners.  With No Mess, No Fuss and always On Time, National Asthma Council approved, and a peace-of-mind 100% MONEY-BACK Guarantee, you are assured you have the professionals on the job.


Electric stoves or gas stoves can release unwanted particles. This can be prevented if you turn on the vent above your stove to eliminate the pollutants.


Recently, people are switching to hardwood floors because carpets are known to hold respiratory irritants. If you have a carpet and rug at home, they should be deep cleaned on a weekly basis to ensure that majority of the unwanted particles are removed.


Plants have that same effect indoors as do trees purifying the air outdoors. Real plants have decorative uses as well as the benefit of improving the air quality in the home.  Essential oils are used in air purifiers as they can help purify the air we breathe also.

Indoor air quality has a significant impact on our health, comfort, and well-being. Unfortunately, our air quality is something that most people tend to overlook. If your Indoor Air Quality is poor, you are putting yourself at risk of health issues.

There are several things you can do to prevent experiencing these health issues. By following the tips above, your indoor air quality will significantly improve.
