Are they easy to clean........??? crash course please x
Admittedly not read all the answers but just wtd to add that many years ago we had TERRIBLE mould problem, got advised to buy a dehumidifer which cost A MINT (1800AED) and a few days later someone asked if we have our AC filters cleaned every 3 months (which we didn;t kniow back then - no prior AC experience). We had them cleaned and learnt how to clean them properly ourselves - and the humidity vanished and has NEVER returned since in the last 8 years! Had to sell the blimming Dehumidifier at a great loss - and it was only used a few days!
Over the past five years I have lived in three separate buildings in the Marina with mold problems; each time the real estate agent informed me there were no such problems when I initially rented. What I have learned over the years is that one has to take matters into their own hands as building owners do not want to invest in such long term maintenance of their buildings. There are three steps to eliminate mold and excessive moisture from one's apartment or home. #1 Ask the maintenance to insulate the air ducts, the condensation where hot and cold meet on a metal surface is a breeding ground for moisture and mold. #2 Purchase dehumidifiers and place them in all your key rooms. My two units, one in my bedroom and the other in my living room remove 8-16 liters of water a day from the moisture-ridden air in my apartment. #3 Purchase an air purification system. I have tried numerous units over the years and personally most worked great only the first month or shortly after buying new filters which are expensive. Recently I switched to the Air Free purification system and am impressed by the sustained air quality in my apartment and the lack of maintenance. Here is a link to a strawberry test that illustrates the effectiveness of these devices. linkWish I had known how to eliminate mold and excessive moisture from a Dubai home five years ago, as I have been excessively sick and continually fatigued for so long. After numerous blood tests and doctors visits where no explanation was offered for my failing health, I realized that this could be due to my environment. I must confess that I am amazed how much better I feel physically and emotionally simply by changing the air quality in my home.
