The Trouble With Black Mold In Air Conditioners

PTAC's and window air conditioning units over time are a nesting place for black mold, and their blower wheels as well as their housings make great a place for black mold to accumulate. Once you notice it on the vent (where the air is pushed out from the unit), or on the coil of the unit it is a warning to get your unit cleaned professionally.

As you use your air conditioner or PTAC it removes moisture in the air through the evaporator coil, besides pulling warm air into the unit it pulls microbes and dust particles through it as well. As it does this the water runs down the coil to the base pan where it usually collects on a maintained unit it would drain out to the rear of the unit and then outside. If the air conditioning unit is not maintained the drains would clog and allow for black mold to develope.It is iIn these water pools that black mold grows, and then their spores are passed along with the cold air through the ducts into the house.

We will come to your home or business and pick the PTAC or air conditioning unit for transportation to our shop. Once we have the air conditioner in our shop we will disassemble the entire cooling unit, all the way down to the base pan. Then we procede to pressure wash the unit with environmentally safe chemicals to remove the black mold. After we are satisfied with the removal of the black mold we proceed to reassemble the air conditioning unit, during which we will oil the motors and spray any needed rust inhibitor. We allow it to dry and run it through a thourough diagnostic check to ensure all is working to factory specification properly. If we find that the unit is in need of Freon we will charge the unit at no additional cost. Once the unit passes all testing we will contact you for delivery, prior to loading the unit on our truck we will once again ensure that the unit is functioning as per factory design. Once we arrive back at your location we re-install the unit making sure that it is as it was when we removed it for cleaning.

A Clean PTAC and air conditioning unit ensures longevity and Clean air. Not only will it help to extend the life of the unit, it can possibly help to lower your electric bills. A unit that can breathe properly can cool a room much more efficently.

Warning:


Many companies will say they can repair Freon leaks on site. This IS False!

A Freon leak must be found and welded closed, the use of a torch is required.

This is the only proper way to repair the leak in your air conditioner or PTAC unit.

Also it is possible that the escaped R-22 Freon may cause a health risk. Although that is rare.



Companies will also claim to come and clean your air conditioning or PTAC unit on-site. Usually for a low cost fee.

Look at the list of steps we take for an average cooling unit in need of cleaning.

Would you do all those steps yourself for the price they offer?
I doubt it, and you should too.

Most important is that if your unit has mold in it, there never is any safe way to remove it on site..

Besides of all the steps we take, the cooling unit needs to completely dry prior to being plugged into the outlet to ensure no electrical damage to the unit.
