DIRTY AIR CONDITIONER HAZARDS IN THE WORKPLACE
Let’s be real here, we live in the tropics where mould is a part of life, just think back to our last wet season. According to the Australian Allergy Centre exposure to mould can;
- Increase Symptoms of allergic rhinitis such as sneezing, runny nose, blocked nose or wheezing
- Exacerbation of asthma, chronic cough
- Symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis such as red, watery, itchy eyes
- An urticarial rash (red, itchy and swollen) at the site where the individual has come into contact with mould.
Prolonged Toxic mould exposure has also been linked to more serious, long-term effects like memory loss, insomnia, anxiety, depression, trouble concentrating, and confusion.
Importantly, people are becoming more aware and more interested in air quality and the effects it has on their health. There thousands of articles in the media of unclean air conditioners in resorts, rental properties and other workplaces, warning of the dangers.
Why not get ahead of this trend? Show your clients how much you care about their total experience. Advertise that your property is ahead of the rest with air conditioning units thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
BH ELECTRICS: AIR CONDITIONING CLEANING SERVICE
The good news is BH Electrics have the systems, equipment and the know-how to get your air conditioning unit back to sparkling.
Our air conditioner cleaning service is a complete clean.
We turn off the power before we start work and place a protective bib around the unit.
We spray with a specially formulated detergent. This penetrates the accumulated dust and grime which has adhered itself to the aluminium and plastic inside the unit. This spray has a neutral PH, is environmentally safe, completely biodegradable and is also registered as food safe.
The interior fins are cleaned under pressure, removing build up and bringing the unit back to efficiency.
Next is the barrel fan, this is the fan located in the heart of the unit and difficult to clean without the specially formulated products and equipment.
All removable filters and covers are cleaned.
Finally, we spray with an anti-microbial treatment. This neutralises any remaining bacteria and mould that may be left behind.
And the benefits don’t stop there. Having your Split System Air Conditioner cleaned by BH Electrics in Cairns and Port Douglas will give you
