How to clean and keep your air conditioner mould free.
The horror of finding mould clogging your air conditioner is nearly as extreme as the efforts in trying to clean it out.
Mould in air conditioning is a real problem across Australia. Our humid climate and warm summers foster the growth of mould perfectly and this can be a nightmare for homeowners! Mould anywhere is far from ideal, but mould in air conditioning is especially bad.
When mould gets into your air conditioner, it will go into circulation around your home. This type of mould can cause illness and allergies. So, it’s important to deal with it swiftly and unfortunately sometimes that means expensive visits from the air conditioner tradies.
It's a better option to stop the mould before it becomes an issue. Simple steps can ensure you don't have a mouldy air conditioner in the first place.
1) Keep your air conditioner clean. Wiping it down will minimise the amount of household dust that can enter the system which will reduce the amount of possible food sources for mould.
2) Clean your filters frequently. During Summer it's common to be running the air con 24/7- but it's very important to take out the filters and give them a good wash under the tap. A dirty filter will promote mould and also be responsible for high power bills and your air conditioner not cooling as effectively as it can.
3) Use Green-Goo selected products in your house to kill the air-borne mould spores. By Simply spraying Green-Goo everyday buster into the air-conditioner you will be able to get rid of the mould. Follow up by using the Green-Goo Gel and you won't have any more mould issues. What's even better is that the gel also kills viruses, bacteria and dust mites - perfect for people that suffer from asthma.
