The two of us have window A/C units inside our home.
The two of us don’t experience Summers that require constant A/C flow, so the only time both of us absolutely use the A/C is when we’re sleeping or when it is seriously humid.
Even with our dehumidifier running, both of us have a taxing time keeping the humidity levels low. Numerous weeks ago, my spouse decided that it was time to wash our A/C units. My spouse took the main living area unit plus our bedroom unit and headed outside with it. I heard some rapid cursing as my spouse took the back off our A/C unit. When I walked over to the door to look outside, my spouse turned around plus told me to join in on the fun. What I saw made me slightly sick to my stomach. Our entire Ac device was overflowing with mold. There were bits of branches in the mess plus a ton of dust. My spouse put on rubber gloves plus began to clean the casing in a solution of clorox plus water. He was trying to clean the mold plus dirt off our entire A/C casing. Every couple minutes, my spouse would dump the dirty water plus get fresh water. In the meantime, I was delicately wiping down the fan blades in order to get all of the mold plus dirt off them. Once we had the various components cleaned plus sanitized, my spouse began to put everything back together. The entire A/C device was together again, but it wouldn’t run. I came into our house plus saw what looked like a piece of cardboard, plus asked my spouse if it was important. All I heard was, ‘Oh shoot!’ as my spouse started taking the screws back out.
