JohnsonCleaners Air Condition Cleaning Gold Coast-Tweed
Residental Air conditioners
With global temperatures rising, air conditioning is one of the most important energy issues. Home
owners haven’t made low-cost cooling a priority, and so most Australian homes depend on air conditioning
to keep them habitable during hot weather. Air conditioning systems are complicated and prone
to inefficiency from low airflow, duct leakage, incorrect refrigerant charge, and oversized systems.
Making intelligent choices about installation, service, and low-cost cooling options is essential to limiting
your air-conditioning electricity costs.
JohnsonCleaners Air Condition Cleaning using the EuroLLPO 10 step cleaning system to clean both ducted or split systems.
Step 1. System assessment. Our technician will first inspect and assess your air conditioner system.
Step 2. Access the filters, coils and drain pans by removing the appropriate panels or duct work.
Step 3. Removal of bulk dust build up by vacuuming.
Step 4. Clean indoor coil with Aeris guard coil cleaner.
Step 5. Coil rinsing. Coil must be flushed to remove contaminants.
Step 6. Coil treatment. A special coil protection is sprayed on to prevent re-colonisation for 12 months.
Step 7. Filter cleaning. Remove visible dust, mould and bacteria from filters.
Step 8. Spray filter with Aeris guard filter treatment to prevent re-colonisation of mould and bacteria.
Step 9. Aeris guard condensate pan tablet is inserted into drain line to prevent blocking.
Step 10. System restoration. Includes reassembly of the unit and confirmation of the operational performance.
Very little is required to clean a window air conditioner, except lots of patience. If patience is
something you lack then it is a job you should turn over to the local appliance serviceman.

JohnsonCleaners helping you if you do not need Air condition cleaner:
Lets get started:
1. Start by removing the filter from the front grille. If it is a disposable type simply replace it with a
new one. Other types are made in a plastic frame and can be cleaned and reused. To clean a reusable
type lay it flat in the sink and sprinkle surface with laundry detergent. Then cover with about one inch
of hot water. Just enough so the filter is submerged. Soak for 15 minutes. Remove from water and rinse
with warm water. Hang up to dry while proceeding to next step.
2. Next, remove the front grille from the main body of the air conditioner. They usually pivot on 2 spring
clips at the bottom. It is usually removed by pulling the grille gently forward while pushing it down at
the same time. If there is resistance then look for hidden screws. Look near the top edge of the grille
or behind the control knob door. Once removed place the grille aside until later.
3. Carefully remove metal cover of air conditioner to expose inner workings. Once all the screws are
removed lift the cover straight up. Do not let it hit the other parts as it can have sharp edges.
This is where the old can comes in handy (ice cube container or muffin tin works well also). Use it to
keep track of all the screws you will be removing. An air conditioner will often use a number of different
types and sizes of screws. Segregate them from each other or confusion will result when we start reassembly.
4. Check the fan motor for any oil holes or oil plugs. If the motor has oil plugs they are usually rubber.
Use caution when removing because the rubber may have become brittle. Often they will break off in
the oil holes resulting in a blockage. If this occurs try to remove the broken plug by using a pin, or the
tip of a small screwdriver.
Once the fan motor oil holes are exposed add a few drops of oil to each end of the motor body. Use a
general purpose (3in1) oil or clean motor oil. A #30 oil is sufficient.
The natural tendency is to over-oil. Too much lubrication is as bad as not enough. Therefore only
3 or 4 drops on both ends of the motor body is sufficient. Add the oil slowly, pausing a few seconds
between each drop. If you add it too quickly over-lubrication will result.
5. Use the brush to remove surface dust and dirt from the evaporator (front fins). Use an up and
down motion. Do not go side to side or allow the fins to be bent over. The fins are very soft aluminum and
can be easily damaged.
Let stand about 15 minutes or as per instructions on de-greaser can. This will allow cleaner to loosen
any hidden dirt. Remove dirt and excess cleaner by slowly pouring warm water into fins. Do not allow
the water to enter any electrical connections or components that may be near the coil. As an added
precaution cover the motor with one of the cloth rags. to protect it from the water.
Do not use any form of high pressure air or water because this can drive dirt farther into fins. Also,
use extreme caution as these coils are filled with high pressure refrigerant.
6. Straighten any bent fins. Use a fin comb if available. If no fin comb then use something soft
such as a Popsicle stick. Straightening the fins will increase the efficiency of the air flow through
the coils. This adds to the overall cooling effect produced by the air conditioner.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the condenser (rear fins) coil. A plastic cowling usually surrounds the
condenser fins. If so, check the top edge to see if it will lift or open. If it opens this will allow easier
access to the condenser fins. Again use caution because the condenser coil is also filled with high pressure refrigerant.
8. Wipe any dirt buildup from both fan blades using a soft rag. Do not bend blades. This would cause a
vibration that would harm the motor.
9. Vacuum all surfaces including front and back of grille assembly. Do not forget to vacuum underside
of metal air conditioner cover. If the cover contains air holes clean them thoroughly. If necessary use a
damp rag. Also use an old rag to remove any debris build-up from the base.
10. Drain any water left in the base and allow it to dry for few hours. When completely dry plug in
air conditioner and test operation. If everything appears okay unplug and reassemble.
Once reassembly is complete, retest operation to ensure replacing the cover has not affected
anything. Adding the cover will tend to twist the frame and can cause interior parts to move out of
alignment. This can cause the fan to become noisy. To correct for this problem remove the cover and
realign to the main body of the air conditioner. Reinstall the cover and test for noises every time 2
or 3 additional screws are added to the cover.
Finally, cover air conditioner with plastic wrap or an old blanket. Store in a warm dry area. Raise it
from floor slightly by placing onto a couple of pieces of wood. This will protect the floor from the metal
edges of the air conditioner, and also protect the air conditioner from moisture.
Repeat this simple procedure yearly. If you do, the machine will be ready for many more years of dependable service.
