Air conditioning antibacterial cleaning

By David Sholicar

If you haven’t used your air con in a while, you may notice an unpleasant smell the next time you turn it on. This is caused by the build-up of bacteria in your system and suggests that it probably needs a deep clean. While you can use disinfectant sprays as a temporary measure, we offer an affordable procedure which ensures that your air conditioning gets a deep-down cleanse which, in turn, can keep you healthy.

Air Conditioning Antibacterial Cleaning will remove the build-up of bacteria that’s responsible for the nasty smells emanating from your air con. In its place, you’ll enjoy the cool and clean smelling air that you’re used to all summer long.

Why do I need Air Conditioning Antibacterial Cleaning?

If you’ve left your air conditioning switched off over the winter, you may notice the unwelcome odour when you come to switch on in the spring. Even a faint hint of it can make your car interior an unpleasant place to be.

A deep clean doesn’t just restore the clean and fresh air smell to your interior. During the process, our qualified technicians will check your system and can advise as to whether your system also needs a regas or any other maintenance.

If mould and mildew have been allowed to build up in your AC system, that also spells bad news for your health. When you operate your aircon with the windows closed you’re breathing the bacteria-laden air from the car vents.

The spread of bacteria and mould can cause health problems including allergic reactions such as coughs and sneezing, headaches and even bacterial infections. If you suffer with breathing difficulties, Air Conditioning Antibacterial Cleaning is a recommended procedure to mitigate the problem when driving.

What does Air Conditioning Antibacterial Cleaning do?

A professional antibacterial clean will remove 99% of the bacteria and mould from your air conditioning system. This deep clean will ensure that the vents and filters are fully cleaned and working efficiently. In turn, it will improve the cleanliness and quality of the air that enters the vehicle's cabin.

How often should I have my Air Conditioning cleaned?

If you notice any of the following problems with the way your air conditioning performs, it’s time for a deep clean:

  • A foul odour when you turn on your air conditioning

  • Lack of cold air circulating from blocked up filters

  • Difficulty breathing, or sneezing and coughing

In our experience, if you haven’t used your air con for a while, it makes sense to have it thoroughly cleaned before you come to rely on it through the summer months.

Getting the best performance from your air-con
When air-conditioners, heaters or climate control systems don’t work as they should, it’s not just temperature you need to worry about. Uncorrected faults can damage the compressor, leak pollutants and degrade the car’s fuel efficiency. Regular inspection of air-con systems is highly recommended.

How to stay cool if your air-con breaks
Forty years ago, only luxury cars had air conditioning. Even as late as the 1990s, it tended to be something that you found only on executive models. In the last 20 years or so, however, it has become a feature we expect to have in all but the most basic budget models.
