Every summer, the air conditioner needs to be thoroughly cleaned. Otherwise, this appliance is ideal for developing all kinds of dangerous bacteria. Thus, we recommend you to go through your options and find the time to clean it, especially before the summer season starts.
For this job, you can call a service and spend a lot of money. But with a little good will and effort, you can do it all by yourself and save that money! If you didn’t clean your A/C this 1summer, we suggest you to do it now, following this procedure.
But, bear in mind that if you’re using the air conditioner during the entire year, it’s advisable to clean it on every three months. And, if you have pets in your home, you should do it even more often.
How To Clean Your Air Conditioner By Yourself
Before you start with the cleaning, be sure to turn off the A/C and disconnect it from the power supply. Then, remove the cover, so that you can see the filters that need cleaning.
Now, take out the filter, remove all major objects from it, and wash it. You can do this step only with water, or you can also add disinfectant.
After washing the filter thoroughly, allow it to dry. Make sure it is completely dry before returning it into the air conditioner.
Before returning the filter into the A/C, wipe and brush all of its openings. You can also take your vacuum cleaner and use it to collect any remaining dust in these openings.
When you’re done, wipe wipe the louvers of the A/C with damp cloth. Leave it for a minute or two to dry, and start putting everything back in place. And that’s it! It’s simple and easy, and it saves money! All it takes is just a little bit of effort and good will!
