Dust Storms = Health Issues

Recent Dust Storms can cause ongoing Health Issues

The recent dust storms experienced in the Southern Eastern Australian states was a combination of strong winds and our drought affected lands. Unfortunately, this combination had a very serious side with Asthma and Allergy sufferers being exposed to what can be a deadly trigger.

Now that the winds have subsided and the dust has literally settled, we must ask how much has settled into our homes and businesses.  Dust storms like the ones recently experienced in Australia have the potential to effect indoor air quality months after the actual event.

Affected homes and businesses need to remove the residual effects caused by these storms to restore indoor air quality. A thorough Vacuum with a HEPA vacuum not forgetting blinds curtains and bed spreads.  Dusting all solid objects and cleaning our air conditioning units.  Air conditioners become heavily contaminated in such events and can continue to blow airborne contaminants around until removed properly.

A professionally cleaned and sanitised air conditioner will not only restore the health of your system but it has been proven to greatly improve indoor environments along with protecting the health of room occupants.

Sanitair will remove recent dust storm contamination from your air conditioners and make them Look, Smell and Run as New.

Reduce Aircon Power Bill- 5 free tips

Reduce Air Conditioning Running Costs!

Did you know, that cleaning your outdoor air conditioning condenser unit is important? And that regular cleaning can reduce your power bills and save you money. People tend to forget about the outdoor system because it is generally out of sight and out of mind. But after reading this… you may start taking better care of your unit!

 

5 Easy – Do It Yourself Aircon Tips to Save $$$$$

 

  1. Turn off your AC when mowing the lawn – Mowing the lawn can be a pain in itself, but having to mow the lawn and clean the outdoor system each time may be even more time-consuming. Consider turning your air con off whilst mowing the lawn, the outdoor unit sucks up the dirt, dust, grass clippings, weeds and whatever else gets blown its way clogging the condenser coils, reducing the efficiency and increasing running costs.

 

  1. Sweep up pet dander- Having dogs and cats live outside, means that their fur can be found all around the garden. The fur can also be easily sucked up by the outdoor system creating, what looks like a fur blanket on the side and back of the system. To avoid this, sweep up pet hair regularly which will make your system run more efficiently and avoid other possible costly issues.

 

  1. Avoid putting pot plants on the outdoor unit- Yes, plants make the unit look pretty! But… they also cause rust and in the long term actually make the system look old and outdated. Avoid placing anything on the outdoor unit to prolonging its lifespan and save you money on having to buy a new one sooner than originally planned. Another helpful way to avoid rust and prolong your unit’s life, is to wash it with mild soapy water and if you’re feeling up to it, polish the system with car polish, not only will it extend its life but it’ll be pleasing to the eye, especially if it is in a visible area.

 

  1. Avoid putting a shelter on the system- Homes that are near the ocean should especially avoid placing a shelter over their outside system or enclosing it in a box. People often think this will extend its shelf life, but actually, it will shorten it. Condensers are built for the outdoors and depend on rain to naturally cleanse them. When enclosed they are out of site and out of mind, corrosion in harsh environments such as coastal areas is a huge problem and it is made worse with minimal cleaning.

 

  1. Flush the coils regularly – Just as the rain naturally washes condenser units, you can hose down your outdoor air conditioning condenser, position your garden hose nozzle in a downward position to flush contaminants out of the coils. Clean the side and back of the unit from top to bottom for best results. Do not point your nozzle directly into the fan unit as you could possibly wet the condenser electronics which could result in damage.

 

SAFETY FIRST:

Air conditioningRemember to turn the power isolation switch off before performing any cleaning on your air conditioning unit. Your isolating switch will typically be located on the wall within a couple of meters from your condenser unit. If you cannot locate an isolating switch you might have to isolate the power to your air conditioner by turning off the appropriate circuit or breaker in your power distribution/meter box.

These are just a few energy saving tips which will also help you extend the life of your aircon ultimately SAVING YOU $$$.  Another tip and possibly the most vital one is to have your indoor evaporator unit professionally cleaned and sanitised every 12 months. A Sanitair Premium Split System Clean ensures that all the critical components of your indoor evaporator are restored to like new condition. Components cleaned include the blower, coils, air well, Condensate drain & pan, evaporator filters and casing.

Sanitair Air Con Cleaning 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 ongoing 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.
