Leakage and foul smell usually occur due to a damaged part in your aircon unit.
If you are experiencing leakage or a foul smell in your air conditioning system, it’s a worrying sign. It usually occurs due to a damaged part in the aircon unit, which means that there is a high chance of mould in the cooling system.
In such cases, we may recommend an in-depth aircon chemical washing. Even with regular aircon servicing, it is still possible that the aircon unit will emit a strong odour and have efficiency issues. Such cases call for a chemical wash cleaning process. Chemical washing can keep your aircon efficient, functional and clean for a long time, and is generally more in-depth compared to usual aircon cleaning.
What is Aircon Chemical Washing
Aircon chemical wash is similar to the traditional soap-and-water cleaning process, except that it is more in-depth and specialised. This is not to be confused with an aircon chemical overhaul.
Here, we use a specially composed chemical instead of the regular cleansers for deep cleansing of the air conditioning system. The high penetration levels of these special chemicals help to dissolve even the most stubborn of accumulation and clean them easily.
If all else fails, an aircon chemical overhaul is the quickest and the safest way to remove all the harmful substance from your cooling system.

How Do You Chemical Clean An Aircon?
Any air conditioning or temperature controlling system consists of mechanical parts such as the condenser, supply pipes, fins, filters, coolant and many more.
The integrated working of all these parts is what completes the system and contributes to its efficiency. Therefore, you cannot expect the air conditioning unit to work efficiently by cleaning only one part of it and neglecting the rest.
Similar to every aircon chemical cleaning firm in Singapore, we also divide the cleaning process into different steps. Starting with disassembling of the aircon system, here is a breakdown of our chemical cleaning process at LK Brothers.
- Cleaning of the indoor drainage tray
- Vacuuming of the drainage system
- Purification of air filter front panel and cover
- Inspection of electrical contacts
- Regulating suction and discharge pressure
- Cleaning of accumulated coils and pipes
- Lubrication of mechanical components
Our aircon chemical cleaning teams will also check the system for any leakage and error during the chemical cleaning process. We monitor the refrigerant levels and fill the reservoir if required.
We can chemically wash even the most stubborn dust or dirt particles that are too difficult to clean by normal methods. These chemicals are also an ideal solution to deal with the bacteria and mould that is growing within the cooling unit.
Furthermore, we are equipped to handle both residential and commercial cooling system units. You can rely on us for a personalised cleaning experience that suits your requirements and needs.
Why Should You Go For Aircon Chemical Wash?
If you live in more polluted areas or use the air conditioner for an extended period (8-10 hours per day), your system will require more frequent cleaning. Even with regular aircon servicing, you may still end up with a mould-accumulated cooling system. Hence, an aircon chemical wash is always recommended.
Benefits of an Aircon Chemical Cleaning?
Some benefits of an aircon chemical wash include:
Increased Air Quality
The air around your home contains a wide variety of harmful constituents like dust, moisture and more. These particles enter the system and stick with its component, forming an ideal breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria and mould.
These microbes grow in the system and soon start to affect the air, potentially becoming a health hazard. However, chemical washing can help with this. While it may not be a permanent remedy, it can still help with the problem at hand.
Extends The Lifespan of The Aircon Unit
During the chemical cleaning process, we remove all the blockages from the system and lubricate all the mechanical parts. We also take care of the electrical thermostat and contact. All these factors will help reduce the strain on the components of the cooling system, and facilitate the smooth running of the condensation cycle and eliminate any possible cause of damages.
Eliminate Performance Issue
Chemical overhaul deals with most of the problems that can reduce your system’s efficiency.
- Cleaning filters for a better and smooth airflow
- Maintaining an adequate refrigerant level necessary for a proper cooling cycle
- Eliminating the possibility of odour and system failure
- Reducing the risk of clogging and water leakage
- Banishing the possibility of air or coolant leakages
- Facilitating the smooth motor operation
- Preventing coil freezing issues
All of these preventative measures reduce the chance of failure in the evaporator, condenser or heat exchangers.
Reducing Potential Problems
The primary aspect of chemical cleaning is to disassemble the whole unit. We can then clean the system and also check for any deformation or damages. If there is any possibility of damage, we can pre-emptively repair or replace the part before it becomes a significant issue.
Long-Term Cost Savings
You may think aircon chemical wash prices are higher than normal cleaning. While it may be costlier, it is actually most cost-efficient.
- An efficient aircon system means no wastage of electricity, and that you do not have to replace it for an extended period of time.
- You have a lower risk of experiencing costly repairs.
- Having no air or coolant leakages in the system means that you will not need frequent refilling.
- Improved air quality reduces any potential health problem and medical charges.
