In present time you can get at least one air conditioning unit in every home in Singapore to deal with the humid environment. To live a comfortable life there, people not only buy the air conditioning unit, but they invest good time and money in its servicing as well. However, sometime people start getting bad smell from their air condoning unit and they wonder reasons and solution for this problem. If you are also dealing with the same problem and you wish to know How to get rid of bad smell in air conditioning unit, then following suggestion can help you in this troubled situation.

Air Conditioning Unit

Check your air conditioning unit:

To get rid of bad smell from your air conditioning unit first you need to check it properly so you can identify the cause of this problem. To check problems in your AC, unplug the power supply of your air conditioning unit and then open the front panel of your AC. If you do not know how to open the front panel, you shall check the manual as each aircon brand may have some different steps to open the front panel. When you are done with the opinion of front cover, then you need to identify the possible cause of bad smell. So, take a flash light and look inside the air conditioning unit for this issue. The cause of this bad smell can be anything ranging from decaying mold, growth of mildew, vegetation or other issues. Other than this some small animals such as mice or lizard can also go and die inside your air conditioning unit and that may cause bad smell. So, look for those factors as well while checking the problem.

Clean the air conditioning unit:

Once you identify the problem causing bad smell then you need to get rid of that cause of bad smell. If you notice this bad smell is coming because of any dead animal inside your air conditioning unit, then you need to remove that dead animal from it before going ahead for other steps of cleaning. And if you see any vegetation or other visible mold on it, then you need to remove that also using proper method before following another cleaning method. After that you can simply use foam or a damp cloth and you can clean extra dirt, dust or other things as well while cleaning your air conditioning unit. Also, when you do this, then it is very important that you use good quality latex gloves to avoid any physical contact with dead animal or other chemicals that might be there in air conditioning unit. Also, when you do the cleaning then make sure you do not touch anything with bare hands.

Flush the drain line:

Once you clean the air conditioning unit and any debris or things inside your system then you need to flush the drain line to get rid of bad smell. Here, you need to flush the drain pipe because sometime vegetation and mildew can grow inside the drain pipe as well and it can cause bad smell in your home and in your air conditioning unit. But if you will flush the drain line then you will be able to get rid of that bad smell easily in least possible efforts and time. Also, when you flush the drain line then it is suggested that you use bleach and hot water solution to kill all the fungi and bacteria from the pipe.

Clean your drain pan:

Many people pay attention in the cleaning of their air conditioning unit to get rid of bad smell, and they invest a lot of efforts and time also for that. But most of the time they ignore the cleaning of drain pan and that’s why they do not get rid of bad smell from in their home. So, at the time of cleaning your air conditioning unit, it is extremely important that you clean the drain pan as well. For cleaning the pain you can use a diluted bleaching solution and that solution will kill all the microbes and fungi from it.

Replace the filter with new one:

In order to get rid of bad smell it is extremely important that you replace your filter also with a new one. I am suggesting you to replace the filter because filter of air conditioning unit also trap a lot of microbes in it and that thing create a lot of bad smell in your home. But if you will replace the filter of your air conditioning unit, then that unit will not only remove the filter but you will get rid of all microbes also and you will not have a decaying or bad smell in your home because of your air conditioning unit. So, make sure you change the air filter to avoid any kind of complication or problem with it.

Let it dry before using it:

Sometime people clean the air conditioning unit, and they follow each and everything that I shared above. However, they do not allow it to dry and that mistake takes away all the efforts and things from aircon unit. So, it is extremely important that you let it dry before starting your air conditioning unit, and you use it only when it completely dries. Sometime it might take more time on the basis of various issues to dry so do not hurry while using it else it might not solve your concerns.

In last I would suggest this only that if you are not able to get the desires result from it and if you still get bad smell from your air conditioning unit, then I would not recued you to try anything more in it. Instead of that I would suggest you to contact an expert for the removal of bad smell. So, if you getting benefits with above method then it’s great else contact an expert for cleaning or removing of bad smell from your air conditioning unit and to have a nice and good smelling house.
