Ductless Mini-Split Deep Cleaning Service Near Elgin, IL

Extend the Life of Your Ductless Mini-Split and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

If you change the filters of your ductless HVAC system regularly, you probably think your unit is clean.

Unfortunately, it’s probably not as clean as you’d like.

Even if you’re diligent about DIY cleaning, ductless HVAC systems build up dirt, dust, mold, and grime in both the indoor and outdoor units. To safeguard your equipment and its efficiency, you should consider professional cleaning for your ductless system.

The Hidden Dangers of a Dirty Ductless Unit

A dirty ductless unit can be hazardous, causing:

    • Mold buildup. If mold is growing in your ductless equipment, the spores are carried throughout your home every time you turn on your unit. Mold can cause irritated eyes, headaches, runny noses, sore throats, allergic reactions, and other respiratory issues.
    • Health problems. Even if you don’t have mold in your unit, you may encounter health issues due to dust, dander, and bacteria hidden in the unit. Children, elderly individuals, and those with respiratory conditions are at a higher risk.
    • Dust accumulation. Dust that blows out of a dirty ductless unit lands on the surfaces of your home, exacerbating allergies and adding to your list of chores.
    • Poor indoor air quality. When your ductless unit is dirty, everything inside is pumped out into the air that you breathe every day, reducing the overall quality of your indoor air.
    • Reduced efficiency. A clogged ductless unit cannot operate as efficiently as a clean one, wasting energy and driving up your electricity bills.
    • Debris from a clogged unit can migrate to the drain pan. When it overflows, this can cause water to build up in your unit and lead to costly leaks.
    • Expensive repairs. Dirt and grime cause your unit to work harder, decreasing its lifespan and increasing the cost of ownership.

Can’t I Just Clean My Filters?

You should absolutely clean the two sets of filters in your indoor air handlers every 4-8 weeks as your indoor air quality dictates.

Cleaning your filters is essential to safeguard your ductless equipment and your indoor air quality.

However, this will do nothing to clean the coil or the blower wheel. Two spots that are always subjected to condensation which makes them natural magnets for dirt and mold.

When you operate your ductless HVAC system, small particulates squeeze through the filter and get lodged in the coil and other hard-to-reach parts of the ductless unit. If you don’t clean your filters regularly, the problem becomes even worse.

What Is the Compass Ductless Cleaning System?

The Compass Ductless Cleaning System is a comprehensive cleaning system for ductless HVAC units, mini-splits, and window air conditioners. It relies on pressurized water and non-toxic cleaners to sanitize your system and remove mold, mildew, fungus, bacteria, skin cells, and other contaminants from every component of your ductless HVAC unit. This includes the barrel fan, chassis, drain pan, covers, and louvers of the indoor air handling unit, and the outdoor condenser.

How Does the Compass Ductless Cleaning System Work?

Before deep cleaning your ductless HVAC system with Compass Ductless Cleaning System, the technician turns on the unit to check the air velocity and make sure it’s operating properly. Then, they attach a catchment bag to the unit to catch the water and debris that will be generated by the cleaning process.

The technician removes the cover and louver to access the inside of the unit. Then, they spray on non-toxic AerisGuard cleaners onto the unit and use a pressure washer wand to push water through the components of the system.

Typically, they start by cleaning the fins and the back of the chassis, followed by the back of the unit, the top drain, and the coil. To ensure the entire barrel fan gets clean, they spin the fan while cleaning this part, and then, they complete the process by cleaning any other interior parts and flushing out the debris that fell from the coil into the main drain.

Finally, they clean the covers and louvers that were removed at the beginning of the process, and they replace everything and check air velocity and operation again.

After repeating this process on all indoor air handling units, the technician cleans the outside condenser unit using a very similar set of steps. Ultimately, the Compass Ductless Cleaning System technology returns your ductless unit to the same level of cleanliness it had when you first purchased the equipment.

Protect Your Investment

AerisGuard Treatment is then applied to your unit to create a biostatic protective coating on the surface. This provides up to 12 months of protection and is ideal as part of an annual ductless maintenance program.

Boost Your Ductless System Performance

Cleaner coils and surfaces result in improved airflow and more efficient heat exchange during the heating and cooling cycle. Not only does this mean lower running costs, but it also delivers cleaner air and improved comfort.

AerisGuard cleaners use patented, non-hazardous multi-enzyme technology, to break down and digest the organic debris and other dirt. This is easily removed using a pressure cleaner.
