Introduction :

For several years now, more and more homes, businesses and industries in France have been equipped with air conditioning systems. Air conditioning cleaning and disinfection, regular and appropriate maintenance of air conditioners, is essential to guarantee quality and sanitary control for customers.

The Cleaning and Disinfection of Air Conditioning requires the respect of specific procedures and the appropriate use of suitable equipment. When the cleaning of the air-conditioning is not carried out or is badly carried out, the air-conditioning can then become harmful for the health and involve various pathologies: Legionellosis, appearance of fungi and moulds, development of allergies, sick building syndrome...

In addition, regular cleaning of air conditioners will save energy, limit the failure of its components over time and thus extend the life of the equipment.

A split air conditioner consists of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor unit(s) called a split. Their maintenance is a step that must not be neglected in order for them to function optimally over time and to achieve maximum efficiency.

Cleaning and Disinfecting Air Conditioning: Before You Start

A split air conditioner runs on electricity, so as for any maintenance of an electrical appliance, it is strongly recommended to disconnect them from the mains or to cut off the general electrical supply at the circuit breaker.

Maintenance of the outdoor unit

Depending on where you live and the weather you are exposed to, it is absolutely necessary to clean the outdoor unit of the air conditioning system.

A deep cleaning every six months or every three months, or more often if you deem it necessary.

If you don't maintain it or do very little maintenance, you risk malfunctions and you will have to call on a company specialising in cleaning and disinfecting air conditioners and its professional products to get it clean. They may charge you for the trip, since you are responsible for the routine maintenance of your split air conditioner.

The first step is to remove anything that may be present, such as branches, small stones, dust, sand, etc., from the area. This can be done by hand or with a brush if you don't want to get dirty. For dirt that is more difficult to remove, such as bird droppings for example, spray lightly soapy water on it, leave it on for a few moments to loosen, then rub with a sponge, rinse and wipe with a cloth.

Cleaning and Disinfecting Air Conditioning: Indoor Unit Maintenance

The maintenance of the indoor unit(s) is also very important, especially because of the air filter that prevents certain harmful particles from entering the house. These particles can be the cause of very annoying health problems in children and people who are fragile, especially for the respiratory system.

Every month, open the split, observe the air filter and change it if it is covered with particles and dust. Some split air conditioner models are equipped with a washable air filter, which saves money.

Twice a year, we recommend that you use a service provider who specialises in cleaning and disinfecting air conditioners. This will help you save energy and make your environment healthier.

L’air conditioning maintenance with adapted, ecological and efficient procedures will therefore be essential to guarantee customers quality, health and energy control.

Cleaning air conditioning systems is therefore a delicate operation, IBL  recommends steam cleaning of air conditioners to treat specific surfaces: fins, condensers, coolers, piping, exhaust ducts. Steam under pressure and at very high temperature allows to clean, dedust and decontaminate all surfaces and components of the air conditioner without damaging them, saving water and treating the most inaccessible places. The pressure will allow a mechanical action, stirring and loosening the dirt without scratching the surfaces to be cleaned or twisting the often very fragile fins.

Cleaning and energy efficiency tests have validated the effectiveness of IBL steam systems for cleaning air conditioning systems.

IBL works with and for professional air conditioning specialists. Thanks to their feedback and experience, we have developed an efficient concept adapted to their problems.
