Keeping your Air-Conditioning clean is critically important for your family’s health.
One cause of indoor air contamination is due to bacterial and fungal contamination of air filters within air-conditioning systems that are poorly maintained.
Air passes through dust filters prior to being cooled at the cooling coil and blown out from the air conditioner. Dust filters are usually intended to remove larger particles that would foul the cooling coil and aren’t effective at removing small airborne particles. As the dust particles are trapped by the filter, they form a layer that reduces the air flow. If this collected dust becomes moist it provides nutrients for fungi and mold to grow inside the air conditioner. When air cools at the coil, it drops moisture to the coil surface and if the air conditioned is not clean it prevents this condensed water to drain away, which a perfect condition for fungi and bacteria to grow. This starts a chain reaction because air that is being circulated through your air-con system can release the fungi, mold spores, bacteria and odorous VOCs which contaminates the air you
