Why do moulds grow in our aircon and why is airconditioning the best way to spread moulds, bacteria, and viruses?

Moisture build-up in airconditioning systems is inevitable with a humid environment and condensation issues. And these provide the perfect breeding ground for moulds and bacteria to grow. If these mould and bacteria grow in the exterior part of the system, it can be cleaned away. But how about the areas we can't reach?

Airconditioning systems are the perfect breeding ground for molds and bacteria. A study done by Osaka City Institute of Public Health and Environmental Services showed that the average mold contamination of airconditioning filters was about 5-fold greater than that of a carpet!

If airconditioning systems are left untreated, we end up with:

  • The spread of invisible bacteria, and viruses
  • The growth of mould throughout the system
  • Musty smell/odour then using synthetic and strong smelling air fresheners to mask the musty smell.
  • Furniture, walls, ceiling, etc. that are mouldy.
  • Increased instances of sick building syndrome.
What is Sick Building Syndrome?

Definition from Wikipedia:
"Sick building syndrome (SBS) is a combination of ailments associated with an individual's place of work or residence. A 1984 World Health Organization report into the syndrome suggested up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be linked to symptoms of SBS. Most of the sick building syndrome is related to poor indoor air quality. Sick building causes are frequently pinned down to flaws in the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems.

Symptoms: Sensory irritation of the eyes, nose, throat; Neurotoxic or general health problems; Skin irritation & Nonspecific hypersensitivity reactions; and odor and taste sensations."

The symptoms referenced in the Wikipedia definition above are symptoms associated with mold and bacteria exposure.

A study in Australia showed that 2 out of 5 people suffer from sick building syndrome.

      "Before I used Gelair Health-e SPLIT, my ceiling and walls have a lot of molds - we have to clean our walls and ceiling every month during the humid months! After using Gelair Health-e SPLIT, the molds didn't come back. My son breath can breathe better. Friends that come over asked if we did anything as our apartment feels fresh and comfortable, but no one can smell the tea tree oil. I'm very happy with the results, and my friends also purchased Gelair Health-e SPLIT." - Victor C., Tuen Mun

      "My place has a musty smell, and we tried everything to get rid of it and no matter what we do, we never got rid of the smell. I even got one of those expensive air purifiers. A friend recommended Gelair Health-e SPLIT as he thinks it might be from our aircons. After we put Gelair Health-e SPLIT in all our airconditioners, the smell of tea tree oil was quite strong, but after a few days, we don't smell it anymore, and also the musty smell is gone! The Health-e Split worked for about two months before I had to replace it. The best part - my family felt better! No more sneezes in the mornings!" - Grace M., Mid-Levels

      "At first, I didn't like the Health-e Split as I don't like the smell of tea tree oil. But the smell is only for a few days. After that I hardly smell the tea tree oil anymore but I can feel that the air is better." - Tony, Wan Chai

      "My office is in an old building, and I receive a lot of clients in my office. They are very surprised that the atmosphere in the office is so different than the outside hallway. A lot of people asked what I'm doing - they thought I have one of those expensive air purifiers. I told them I have Gelair Health-e SPLIT." - Tina., Sheung Wan

        17. Why use Gelair instead of bleach or vinegar? 

           a. Gelair Solution vs. Chlorine Bleach:

         

      • Gelair will not produce white-bleached spots where there is over spray. It can be used on any surface, except on some plastics.
      • Tea tree oil has a very high boiling point and will stay in‐sit for a long time (days). Chlorine vaporizes quickly.
      • Chlorine will cause corrosion to metals. The chloride will cause corrosion of metals and even stainless steel.
      • Chlorine has an odor that people do not like, whereas tea tree oil has a pleasant scent.
      • Many people are allergic to chlorine.
      • Chlorine often causes people to have an asthmatic attack.
      • Chlorine is highly alkaline and is a serious safety hazard – if you accidentally
        spray it into the eyes, it can cause severe/permanent eye damage.
      • Chlorine will attack many materials.
      • Ever wonder why you bleached the moulds out and it's back again after a few days? Chlorine bleach decolourizes and kills mould on the surface but does not penetrate porous surfaces to kill the roots of the mould.
      • Gelair Tea Tree Oil Spray is specially formulated to penetrate porous surfaces and kills the mould at its roots. Spraying Gelair Tea Tree Oil Spray on tile grouts prevent mould from growing back for up to 12 weeks.
      •  


        b. Gelair Solution vs. Vinegar:

         

      • Vinegar only works because of its acidity.
      • It would help if you got liquid vinegar directly onto the Mould. It will not treat Mould, which is hidden.
      • Vinegar does not kill all types of moulds, bacteria, and viruses.
      • Vinegar is the cheapest safe acid to use.
      • Vinegar has a strong unpleasant smell, and some people hate the smell of vinegar.
      • Vinegar is much more volatile than Tea Tree Oil (TTO), so it will disappear nearly at the same rate as water, whereas Tea Tree Oil (TTO) will exist on a surface for a long time.
      • Vinegar does not penetrate materials as well as tea tree oil.
      •  

         

        18. Why use Gelair instead of pure tea tree oil? 

             a. Pure tea tree oil is very potent and can damage surfaces and irritate skin. 

             b. Gelair is especially formulated to optimize the germ-kill action while still being safe to use as it is. 

        19. How often do I have to use/replace Gelair products? Do you havesubscriptions so I don’t have to remember when to buy again?
