How to Remove Algae From an Air Conditioner
Air-conditioning units, found in homes both old and new, may seem like maintenance-free appliances. This erroneous mindset can result in damage to a home that a simple maintenance procedure could have prevented. Air conditioners create condensation that generally passes through a drain pipe that empties outside. Due to the constant moisture produced by the condensation, algae can form clogs in an air conditioner's drain pipe, blocking it. This causes water to back up and overflow inside the house, resulting in water damage to walls, furniture and floors. Fortunately, algae problems are a "quick fix," with the right tools.
