Is your air conditioner not as cold as it was when it was brand new?
Perhaps, you have been using your air conditioner for quite a number of years without experiencing any problem, but alas, also without doing any proper maintenance throughout those years.
Do not take for granted that any of your home appliance, gadgets, and even cars, will still function optimally for years without proper and professional care and maintenance.
So, you ask, what now? Well, wipe off your sweaty brows, and read on.
Dirt is the most common culprit why your air conditioner might not be working properly. Dirt that has accumulated in air conditioner parts like the filter and coils will cause the AC to not function properly because of reduced airflow and decreased ability of your AC to absorb heat.
Moreover, you will have higher energy consumption because your air conditioner will work harder than ever to compensate for this dirt blockage. Furthermore, the quality of the air you breathe indoor deteriorates if your AC is not maintained properly.
A suitable solution for this common problem is chemical cleaning.

Chemical cleaning is a process that involves the use of chemical-based cleaners to recondition and restore your air conditioner. The chemical wash dissolves the dirt, oil and dust that have accumulated in your air conditioner throughout the years, thus restoring it to an almost new condition.
It is generally recommended for older air conditioning units that have been dormant for quite some time and units that are used continuously without regular maintenance.
As a rule of thumb, aircon chemical cleaning should be done at least once a year for residential houses, and once a month for commercial establishments.
