These filters need to be cleaned

Cleaning air conditioning filters is not something that is frequently done, but doing so will make a big improvement in the quality of the air in your space. Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, a leading professional commercial cleaner, offers advice on the cleaning of air conditioning filters.

The life of your commercial air conditioner will be prolonged, simply by keeping the filter clean. Regular cleaning is essential to avoid the accumulation of dirt, allergens and pathogens

Keeping your air conditioning filer clean is a fairly straightforward task. First, remove the filter from the main device and inspect carefully to make sure it is in good condition. If there is any kind of damage, it is best to replace it. Then, the next thing to do is simply to vacuum it, preferably with a HEPA cleaner.

Next, for a more thorough cleaning, you can disinfect it. Vinegar (or a commercial equivalent solution) is a great disinfectant. Use equal parts water and vinegar to create your cleaning solution.  The solution should be enough to cover all of the filer. The vinegar in the solution will kill all the germs and bacteria.

Leave the air conditioning filter in the solution of vinegar and water for at least 4 hours. After sufficient time, remove the filter from the solution and allow to dry. What is important here is that you do not rinse the filter. Place on a towel and let it air dry. Once dry, inspect the filter to make sure it is clean and if all is OK, place it back in the air conditioning system.  Now your newly cleaned filter will allow your air conditioner to operate more effectively.

If you do not want to deal with the hassle of cleaning these filters yourself, you can hire the services of a professional cleaner.
