Fishing Line, Fuel & Bait Needed in Townsville!

The benefits of living and working in tropical north Queensland for local Sanitair Townsville owner/operator Todd Kelly, is that he gets to indulge in his passion “Fishing”.  Todd reckons the waters off Townsville produce some of the best quality fish in Australia.  Looking at some of his photos one might agree.

 

Todd must love cleaning, because when he is not found cleaning air conditioners he can usually be found cleaning fish!

Unfortunately for Todd, the weather is starting to warm up.  He knows he has to take every opportunity to wet a line before his phone rings off the hook. With a very hot summer predicted this season, Todd’s services will be in high demand from his very happy loyal customers along with all of the new customers that every Summer brings.

Get in Early

Getting in early is advised before the heat really sets in.  You will be helping a nice guy fuel his boat, replenish his line and buy some bait.

To avoid leaking air conditioners, fishy smelling aircon’s and expensive power bills this summer, usually caused by neglected air conditioners call Todd Kelly at Sanitair Townsville Today.

mould

Ways to reduce mould in your home and office

Mould needs moist warm conditions and a food source. That food source may be carpets, flooring, aircons or anything the organism can grow on. Air conditioners are the perfect breeding ground.

 

How can mould affect us?

Common symptoms include: headaches, achy joints, asthma, fatigue, sinus, respiratory infections, skin infections and anxiety. According to NSW Health, “if inhaled the spores can cause blocked noses, irritation to the eyes and skin. People can develop mould infections, usually in the lungs, asthma sufferers can have an attack and life-threatening conditions are possible — although only in rare cases.”

Mould is a harmful contaminant. It is hazardous and can consume everything around it. Minute spores are released by the mould in order to reproduce.

According to Dr Gaskin “mould spores don’t affect all people in a similar way. You could line 10 people up in a room and they could have a completely different reaction depending on their sensitivities or ill health. The symptoms are easy to confuse with general colds and flu.” she said. (Source: www.news.com.au)

 

How to prevent mould in your home and office

dirtyReducing dampness in your home or office can prevent mould from growing. Other preventions include:

 

Reducing ​humidity, Good ventilation and Controlling moisture

  • Lower the use of unflued gas heaters
  • Limit the amount of indoor plants and fish tanks in your home/office
  • Avoid or lower the use of humidifiers
  • Open windows for good ventilation
  • Turn on exhaust fans in bathrooms laundries and kitchens
  • Don’t ignore water leaks and plumbing problems. Fix all water problems as soon as you can
  • Carpets damaged by water and building materials must be washed and cleaned. Get rid of any material/furniture that cannot be cleaned and dried.
  • Run your air conditioner at 24 degrees as this helps to control the moisture in the room. If running a unit at its lowest temperature with windows open, this can add to the problem. Close windows and doors when running air conditioning. Ensure your system doesn’t contain mould as this can cause further problems. Contact a professional aircon cleaning company such as Sanitair Australia in this case.

 

What to do if your aircons have been affected by mould

Air conditioning units are another area that mould and organisms grown on and in. If they are not regularly cleaned and sanitised, you and your family may be breathing in contaminated air which can make you feel ill and fatigued. Sanitair Australia offers a Premium Split System Service which is the most popular and thorough service. The premium service is recommended annually for Asthma and Allergy sufferers and Sanitair® guarantees treated air conditioners indoor coils will be free of mould and bacterial contamination for a period of 12 months from treatment date.  If any treated indoor coil is found to have mould contamination within the guarantee period, Sanitair® will clean and retreat the contaminated system at no charge to the customer.

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.
