Aircon Chemical Cleaning
Before we go into the details, note that chemical wash is different with chemical overhaul and regular cleaning service offered by professional aircon company like Sky Breeze Aircon Experts. For regular cleaning service, the technicians will only clean the outer parts of the machine. For chemical cleaning, technicians will dismantle the main parts such as water trays, air filters and fan coils to wash. The whole process may take around 30-45 minutes per unit.

Chemical solution will be used to clean the stubborn dust and dirt accumulated on the internal parts. By doing so, it will increase the cooling efficiency of your aircon system and hence reduce your monthly electricity consumption as well.

Ideally, you shall be engaging us for chemical cleaning service twice a year. By doing so, besides extending the lifespan of your aircon system, it could also reduce the monthly electricity consumption aside from improving the indoor air quality.

Besides that, chemical cleaning also helps to reduce corrosion, and remove molds. Chemical Cleaning is normally used as a preventive measures and helps to extend the lifespan of your aircon for years.

Different from Chemical Cleaning, Aircon Chemical Overhaul is used as a method of aircon servicing or repairs. This is the method to resolve the issues such as aircon not cooling enough, generating loud noise, water dripping or water leaking and for aircon which has stopped working completely.

For Chemical Overhaul, each parts of the aircon system is dismantled for cleaning, repaired or replaced. It is always good to listen to aircon experts whether your aircon needs a complete chemical overhaul or just chemical cleaning will do. Note that although you have a regular cleaning service for 2 years, you may still need to get a chemical cleaning or chemical overhaul service every 2-3 years to completely clean the internal parts of your aircon. The whole process may take around 1-1.5 hours per unit.
