Sanitair Adelaide

Sanitair Services Ronald McDonald House

David McGlashan from Sanitair Adelaide was recently contacted by Ronald McDonald House Adelaide in relation to cleaning and sanitising the hi-wall split system air conditioners in their family apartment complex.  Sanitair has previously provided HVAC Hygiene remediation for Ronald McDonald House in NSW and Adelaide was also keen to experience the improved air quality as a result of contracting Sanitair Adelaide.

Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation for families of children that have to relocate to enable access to vital on going medical treatment. Some of the families have travelled from as far as the Northern Territory and are now living 1000’s of km from “home”. Quite often families have to relocate for many months – one family in particular travelled to Adelaide from Darwin in February and “with a bit of luck” might be home for Xmas! They have to endure 10 months away from home as their 2yr old is being treated for leukaemia – it is extremely humbling and put our daily worries into perspective!

There are 10 family apartments on site and for families and those living with compromised immune systems maintaining a healthy environment is paramount. Regular professional air conditioning cleaning and sanitising ensures a high standard of indoor air quality and minimises risk.

 

Sanitair Adelaide familiar to RMHC

Ronald McDonald House Adelaide Operations Manager Tim Rees-Jones was familiar with Sanitair from the air conditioning cleaning services provided at Ronald McDonald House in Randwick NSW and from his time with The Mantra Group.

Sanitair Adelaide had previously cleaned the a/c’s at “Mantra on Frome” and “BreakFree Directors Studios” in Adelaide.  After Tim had witnessed the benefits of Sanitair first hand he had no hesitation in contracting Sanitair Adelaide once again to undertake the work at Ronald McDonald House.

David from Sanitair Adelaide said the challenges of completing his work whilst working in and around families who occupy the apartments whilst inconvenient compared to the inconvenience that the families are going through is really insignificant.

Would you let a carpet cleaner clean your expensive air conditioner?

Well, if you had have heard the stories from some of our customers experiences you would probably answer no. Businesses are always looking for ways to increase revenues and whilst there is nothing wrong with this in principle, many expand by entering into markets that they know little or nothing about to the detriment of consumers and their property.

Over the last 10 years we have seen more and more companies offering air conditioning cleaning as an additional service to their core business. For example, the carpet cleaning industry is one market segment offering air conditioning cleaning with no specific industry backed training or qualifications.

The cleaning of carpet is very different to the professional cleaning and sanitising of an air conditioner that contains expensive electronic and mechanical parts.

 

Aircon Cleaning Experiences

We have heard too many times from consumers that have had negative experiences with carpet cleaning companies who have been engaged to clean their air conditioner without knowing the questions to ask before they were engaged.

Many customers of these companies have experienced damaged to their air conditioners after receiving extremely poor and unprofessional aircon cleaning services. Unfortunately, with the majority of these bad consumer experiences the companies involved did not accept responsibility and did not offer to repair the damage. Unprofessional companies choose to blame the equipment, customer and/or coincidence, leaving the customer with no choice but to pay for expensive repair bills.

The benefits of having your air conditioner professionally cleaned are numerous from better health, increased performance, quieter operation, odour removal and reduced energy consumption.

 

If you are considering having your air conditioners professionally cleaned you need to ask yourself these questions;

  1. Does the service provider specialize in Professional air conditioning cleaning and sanitising?
  2. How long has the service provider been offering this service?
  3. Does the service provider Guarantee their work?
  4. Is the service provider Authorised by the Australian Refrigeration Council?

smelly air conditioning

What causes smelly air conditioning?

“There’s a really bad smell coming from my air conditioner, what is it from?” This is a question we hear from our customers on a regular basis.

Smelly air conditioning units can be caused by mould and mildew that accumulate from condensation on the air conditioner coils, or a clogged drain pan, or a leak in the system. Animals such as rodents, bugs, spiders and geckos also tend to creep into the unit and eventually die, giving off a ‘foul’ smell.

Contaminated air conditioning units can become a breeding ground for mould, mildew, and other sources of biological contaminants. Circulating these contaminants through the home or office can result in various symptoms affecting your family, friends, staff and customers.

 

These include:

  • Fatigue
  • Sore scratchy throat
  • Asthma symptoms or attacks
  • Allergies and Hay Fever
  • Dry eyes
  • Headaches
  • Battling to breath with tightness of the chest
  • Frequent colds, flu or flu-like symptoms

 

Signs that you may have mould/mildew growing inside your system:

  • Leaky air conditioner
  • High indoor humidity levels
  • Mould growth that’s spread from another source

To check if you have mould growing in your air conditioner you will need to examine your unit/ducts. An accurate and thorough examination can be difficult and this is why it’s ideal for you to have a qualified Technician inspect your air conditioning unit to examine areas that you can’t using special equipment designed for the job.

 

Signs that you may have a dead animal in your smelly air conditioning unit:

  • The smell is stronger the closer you get to the vents
  • You’ve heard moving pests prior to the smell
  • You find pest droppings, hair, etc. in the unit

If you have a smelly air conditioning unit, then it’s time to find and clear the source of the bad odour. Contact Sanitair on 1800 130 168.
