A Detail-Oriented Approach to AC Duct Cleaning

A dirty air conditioning system is one that has accumulated dirt, dust, and other pollutants in its various components such as the air filters, diffusers, coils, fan blowers and ducts. This can result in reduced efficiency, bad indoor air quality, and an increased risk of equipment failure. 

On the other hand, a clean AC system has been thoroughly cleaned by a professional service and is free of such contaminants. Regular AC duct cleaning results in improved energy efficiency, better indoor air quality, and a longer lifespan for the AC equipment.

All the Benefits of Regular AC Cleaning in Dubai

Regular aircon cleaning is an essential part of maintaining a clean and healthy indoor environment and comes with numerous benefits.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Cleaning the ducts removes dust, dirt, and other contaminants that can circulate through the HVAC system, leading to better air quality and reducing the risk of allergies and other respiratory issues.

Eliminate odors

Ducts can accumulate bad odors over time due to mold, mildew or other sources of contamination. Cleaning the ducts can remove these bad odors, resulting in a fresher and more pleasant indoor environment.

Increased Energy Efficiency

When ducts are dirty, the HVAC system has to work harder to circulate air, which can lead to increased energy consumption and higher utility bills. Cleaning the ducts can help reduce this burden, making the system more energy-efficient.

Increased lifespan

Regular AC Cleaning can help to extend the lifespan of the AC system by removing the buildup of debris that can cause damage to the system over time.

Cost Savings

Regularly cleaning the ducts can help keep energy costs down and extend the life of the HVAC system, reducing the need for costly repairs or replacements.

Improved Comfort

A well-maintained HVAC system can help to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the building and can help to keep indoor air fresh, which can lead to improved comfort for the building's occupants.

Prioritizing Sustainability: Eco-Friendly AC Cleaning

Our AC cleaning service utilizes a super oxidized eco-friendly disinfection solution approved by Dubai Municipality that effectively eliminates germs, bacteria, and other harmful pollutants from your air conditioning unit. 

This cutting-edge technology creates a high concentration of active oxygen species, which are safe for both human health and the environment, yet highly effective in sanitizing your AC system.

How often should AC be cleaned in Dubai?

  1. AC Servicing: It’s advisable to schedule AC servicing on a quarterly basis. Regular servicing helps identify and address minor issues before they escalate, ensuring efficient operation and minimizing the risk of breakdowns.

  2. AC Duct Cleaning: AC duct cleaning should be performed at least once a year. Over time, dust, debris, and allergens can accumulate in the ductwork, affecting indoor air quality and the efficiency of your system. Cleaning the ducts annually helps maintain a clean and healthy environment.

  3. AC Deep Cleaning of Unit Components: Components such as the AC coil and AC blowers should undergo deep cleaning every two to three years. AC Deep cleaning removes accumulated dirt, grime, and microbial growth, optimizing the performance of these critical components and extending their lifespan.

What are the health signs showing that you need an AC cleaning in Dubai?

Increased Allergy Symptoms

One of the most telling health signs that your air conditioning system needs cleaning is an increase in allergy symptoms. If you or your family members experience frequent sneezing, coughing, wheezing, or itchy eyes when the AC is running, it could be due to airborne allergens circulating through the vents. Pollen, dust mites, mold spores, and other allergens can accumulate in the air ducts and filters, triggering allergic reactions.

Worsening Respiratory Issues

Dirty air conditioning systems can exacerbate existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or bronchitis and may even contribute to the development of new respiratory problems. Breathing in contaminated air from a dirty AC can irritate the respiratory tract, leading to coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and other respiratory symptoms. If you notice a worsening of respiratory issues when the AC is on, it’s a clear indication that an AC cleaning is needed.

Persistent Fatigue or Headaches

Poor indoor air quality resulting from a dirty air conditioning system can also affect your overall well-being, leading to symptoms such as persistent fatigue, headaches, and difficulty concentrating. Contaminated air can contain harmful pollutants and toxins that can impact cognitive function and cause physical discomfort. If you frequently experience fatigue or headaches while indoors, especially when the AC is in use, it’s advisable to investigate the cleanliness of your air conditioning system.

Skin Irritation or Dryness

Dirty air conditioning systems can also contribute to skin irritation or dryness, particularly if the air being circulated is laden with dust, allergens, or other contaminants. Exposure to polluted air can strip the skin of its natural moisture and exacerbate conditions such as eczema or dermatitis. If you or your family members experience dry, itchy skin or irritation, especially after spending time indoors with the AC on, it may be a sign that you require an AC cleaning.

Common Questions About AC Cleaning in Dubai

Do your AC Cleaning services include a warranty?

A “cleanliness” warranty cannot be provided for an extended period for an AC system, as the cleanliness of the system over time will depend on various factors outside of our control, such as usage, location, air pollution, humidity level, abnormal condensation, etc.

For example, a common misuse of AC in Dubai is when residents leave their windows open while the AC is running, creating high condensation inside the AC system and leading to mold growth.

A detailed report, including pictures before and after the cleaning, will be provided for each location to demonstrate the results of our cleaning process.

If any AC issues arise before the cleaning schedule, we will assess them concurrently. Please inform us of any related issues (e.g., AC not cooling, not functioning, needing replacement or repair); extra charges may apply. For cleaning purposes alone, we do not offer guarantees. However, if the AC continues to have issues after the service, such as any parts replacement or repair not functioning properly or the AC not cooling, we can schedule a team return, provided it is related to the cleaning process.

Why should I schedule an AC cleaning regularly?

Sand and dust particles travel far in a dry and windy place like Dubai. These particles are constantly being blown through the air and into your home or office. Since your HVAC unit is responsible for maintaining airflow inside, it is responsible for filtering these contaminants.
Over time, these dust particles accumulate in your air ducts and settle on its inner surface. This creates a breeding ground for molds, algae, and spores which may cause you or your family harm.
That’s not all, these accumulated particles can cause blockage in your air ducts reducing the performance of your HVAC unit. This is because, your unit will have to work twice as hard to force air through blocked air passages, potentially leaving you with a higher energy bill.
In a worst-case scenario, this reduced effectiveness may also result in your interior space having relatively high humidity. Prolonged exposure to areas with high humidity can lead to serious health issues like asthma and trigger other allergic reactions.

How long does it take to clean an AC?

The time it takes to clean an AC depends on various factors, including the level of service performed and the size of the AC system. For a quarterly AC servicing, it typically takes between 1 to 3 hours. However, for an AC duct cleaning, the process may take from 2 hours to a full day. For a full AC system cleaning, which includes coil cleaning, the duration can range from 3 hours up to several days, depending on the complexity and size of the system.

Does Air Conditioner cleaning remove mold?

Yes, our air conditioner cleaning service effectively removes mold. We utilize specialized techniques and eco-friendly cleaning solutions to thoroughly clean and disinfect your air conditioning system, eliminating mold and preventing its growth in the future. Our trained technicians pay special attention to areas where mold commonly accumulates, ensuring a clean and healthy environment for you and your family. In some extreme cases where the mold spreads to your home, we suggest a mold remediation inspection as part of our mold cleaning service process.
