Creating a Healthy Environment for You and Your Family

The holidays are approaching. The Christmas and New Year holidays are coming. Have you planned how to create a healthy environment for you and your family in this jolly season? When it comes to improving our family’s health, you tend to focus on exercise, nutrition, and vitamins. However, you spend less time focusing on how your environment can affect your overall health. This Christmas season, you will spend a lot of time at home or indoors. It is important to figure out ways to create a healthy environment for you and your family.

Paying attention to your living environment has an effect on you and your family’s long-term health. Cleaning up and removing harmful toxins inside your home must be one of your priorities alongside nutrition and exercise. Every home is different and there are some aspects that are out of your control. However, you can make some easy tweaks or work with professionals to ensure a safer environment in your living space.

Here are some few tips you can use to ensure a healthy environment for your family this holiday season:

Declutter your Home

Your personal environment has a big impact on your health and emotional well-being. If there is clutter in your home, it can cause you stress. Stress is harmful as it can cause heart disease and lower your immunity to disease.

Check Your Water Tanks and Pipes

Always check your pipes if they are clean. Make sure that the water your family uses to drink, brush their teeth, or bathe with is clean. Get water filters and a water purification system to avoid drinking contaminated tap water.

Get An Air-Purifier

The first step to having good health is to ensure that you are breathing clean air. Air pollution has a significant effect on your health. Small particles have been linked to some lung issues and heart disease. It is advisable to invest in a high-quality air purifier to reduce the risk of any illnesses caused by polluted air.

Have Your Air Conditioner Professionally Cleaned By An ACWWA Certified Technician

It is pointless to have an air purifier at home if your air-conditioner is not clean. Always use a Technician that uses “fit for purpose” equipment used to specifically deep clean air conditioners.   A HydroKleen will clean your AC unit back to ‘As New’ hygienic condition under the ACWWA HVAC Wet Wash Guidelines for Ductless Split Systems. A Verification Seal will be affixed to your unit to confirm the clean has been completed to ACWWA’s Guidelines.

How to Get Your AC Unit Ready for Summer

When the temperature rises and the season changes, you do not want to be caught simmering in the very hot summer heat. You may risk getting heatstroke if you are overexposed to heat. The last thing that you want to happen on the first day of summer is to find out that your air conditioner is not working. This is why it is very essential to always maintain your air-conditioner.

During the cold seasons, your air conditioner may have been sitting idle. Even if your air conditioner unit is not working, it will collect debris and particles on the internal components such as the barrel fan, coil and filters. Before the summer heat hits you, you must perform some cleaning maintenance and minor checks to ensure that your air conditioner is in great shape.

Clean Your Filters

An air-conditioning filter is used to prevent dust, pollen, smoke, and grease from coming inside the air conditioner unit. Filters are vital to ensure a better air quality inside a home or office. The air containing the contaminants is trapped in the filter which is why it is important to be cleaned. If your air-conditioner is left unclean, bio-toxic materials will remain inside your AC unit.

Have Your Air-Con Professionally Cleaned by An ACWWA Certified Technician

In some cases, people tend to prefer doing the maintenance of their air conditioner units. However, there is only so much you can do. Cleaning the various parts of an air-con requires fit for purpose equipment. It is easy to miss the areas that require thorough cleaning. Unclean air conditioners will make you deal with bad air quality inside your home or office.

When hiring a technician to clean your air conditioner units, make sure that they are certified by the Air Conditioner Wet Wash Association or ACWWA, to ensure that you will be assured with a clean and sanitation of your AC unit. In some cases, other people present themselves as air-conditioner cleaners, only for you to discover that they have not thoroughly cleaned your air conditioner and the bio-toxic material is still in your AC unit.

Is Your Air Conditioner Making You Sick?

Compared to outdoor air, indoor air maybe stale, unclean, and filled with many pollutants. Many of the pollutants that you inhale inside your home often come through the windows while the others come from different sources inside the home. One of the other main sources of bad indoor air quality is an unclean air conditioner.

Poor indoor air quality is dangerous for you and your family’s health. It can cause various respiratory conditions and other health problems. The primary function of your air conditioner is to produce cool fresh air in an enclosed room. The impurities that pass through inside the air conditioner’s filters may often stay inside which can be harmful if not thoroughly cleaned.

Here are some harmful pollutants that can be trapped in your air conditioner unit:

Microbial Pollutants

Microbial pollutants include viruses, bacteria, cat saliva, animal dander, pollen, and dust mites. Microbial pollutants were linked to some serious health issues such as influenza, chickenpox, and measles. These diseases are transmitted through the air. Although your air conditioner might not directly cause these diseases, the pollutants trapped inside the unit that is left unclean can weaken your immune system.

Volatile Organic Compound

Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are compounds that can easily become gases or vapors. They can be released from various consumer products such as paints, solvents, cigarettes, adhesives, moth repellants, cleaners, and disinfectants. When your air conditioner is restricted with debris that has accumulated inside, the VOCs permeating inside your home have no escape. This may lead you and your family to inhale these chemical compounds.

Mould

Mould can form inside your air conditioner, especially on the unit’s coil and barrel fan. A mould is a fungus that often thrives in moist areas inside the home. Certain mould, such as the black mould, have very bad human health effects. It can cause allergic reactions and immune responses causing asthma.

Allergens

An allergen is an antigen that causes a vigorous immune response wherein the immune system fights off a possible threat that it perceives as harmful to the body. This immune response is called allergy. An unclean air conditioning unit can spread allergens inside a room. These allergens can cause asthma, allergic rhinitis, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

What is the Best Solution to Get Rid of These Pollutants?

The best way to get rid of these pollutants is to have your air conditioner professionally cleaned. Work with an Air Conditioner Wet Wash Association (ACWWA) certified technician who has the right tools and equipment to clean your air conditioning unit. ACWWA certified technicians follow guidelines that will put your mind at ease that they are experts in providing an air conditioner cleaning service. It is important to hire air conditioner cleaning technicians who are also recognised for putting their clients’ health as a priority.

HydroKleen Australia is the leading air conditioner cleaning service provider. All our technicians are ACWWA certified.

How To Choose An Air Conditioner Cleaning Company

It appears more and more companies are steadily producing air conditioners and it’s easy to see why. The demand for air conditioners are growing by the day and this doesn’t look like it’s going to dwindle anytime soon. In fact, with climate change happening right now people are going to want to invest in air conditioners more. The demand for air conditioners is so overwhelming that a lot of entrepreneurs have decided to open up businesses that offer air conditioner cleaning services.

A quick Google search will give you a long list of these air conditioner cleaning companies and what’s interesting is that all of them claim to be number one making it difficult if not hard for consumers to choose the best company. Obviously, if you are wise you’ll know that this is just part of their marketing campaign to attract customers. This brings us to question, how do you choose an air conditioner cleaning company? We’ll give you three tips so you won’t make the mistake of hiring a company that will charge you with ridiculous fees (and hidden fees) and companies that do not deliver on their promises.

  1. Read Customer Feedback

One of the ways for you to know about whether or not a certain company does what it says on their ABOUT US page is by reviewing customer feedback. There are customers who are willing to give their two cents about a service either to encourage or to warn future customers. You can join forums or just read about customers’ experience online.

  1. Research A Company’s Reputation

Doing research will give you the answers you are looking for. A company that has an untainted reputation will stand the test of time. If they have been in the industry for a long time and if they have garnered awards, licenses, training, and receive good reviews about their services then it could only mean that they are indeed true to their word and they value customer satisfaction.

  1. Try Their Service

Assuming you’ve done tip#1 and tip#2 and you’re convinced that you’ve found the cream of the crop, your next step is to try their service and see if they truly deliver to their promise. After a cleaning service, it’s as simple as inspecting your air conditioner to see if it’s free from dirt and debris as this is a clear indicator that they did a thorough clean. Other factors to consider are prompt and efficient service; their ability to explain clearly what is happening and improved airflow of your air conditioner among others.

HydroKleen does all these and more because we value your trust and we strive to maintain your loyal patronage. We don’t let our website speak for ourselves; we let our customers vouch for us. We also have a set of guarantees for all our customers so they can have an idea what to expect from us.

At HydroKleen we specialise in cleaning and santising air conditioners to remove organisms such as bacteria, fungi, mould and mildew that can make you and your family sick.  Our comprehensive air conditioning cleaning service will make sure that the air you breathe is fresh and clean to reduce the probability of sickness caused by organisms trapped in your air conditioners.
