Check and clean your hotel AC filters or get sick!


doug

Recommended Posts

I have stayed in several different hotels in Thailand and one thing I find is that the AC filters are generally not cleaned enough and can make you sick if you use your AC. Please take a moment and get on a chair and open your AC unit and pull out the filters. I will suggest you take them into the shower and rinse them off and use a bit of soap on them to disinfect. Let them dry a bit and put them back in. I have gotten a cough both times I forgot to clean them at the beginning of my trip and once I cleaned them I got much better. I would not ask the maid tk clean it as I do not always trust their skills and they may just wipe the outside of the unit and think that is what you wanted.

 

I didn't take a picture but the Honey Inn was very fuzzy and dirty and I definitely could not see through the filter.

 

Please add your pictures of your hotel air filters and name the hotel.

A better idea is to take disinfectant spray and spray it into the aircon while it is working. This will kill things that are anywhere in the airflow rather than cleaning mainly dust from the filter. To get well inside the aircon you may need to remove the filter if it is very dirty.

90 percent of people visiting Thailand get the dreaded cough, and I don't think it is related to dirty AC units, but sucking pussy and kissing .

But I have taken the filters out and hosed them down in the shower.

Straight into the duct while it's running.

 

Empty a can if needed. It'll stink the room like chemical flavoured pine for a bit, but it kills everything.

I do it at work the first day in each swing.

I used to get sick every time , now it's never.

Nice heads up thanks. It hadn't occured to me how easy it might be to clean yourself. I just removed my LG filters and cleaned in the shower with anti-bacteria soap i had, now drying outside.

They looked much cleaner than expected.

 

Will be interesting to see how dirty some filters are.

I'd worry more about what's under the sheets. Why do you think Thai girls always wear towels

Good tip doug, something I always do, take out the filters and clean them in the shower.

I used to get the dreaded cough, but I never do, now that I....  wash my hands regularly, take multi vitamins, use mouthwash regularly, wash the air con filters and use a fan most of the time.

If you do not have a fan, you can buy one at a supermarket.

I recently started a topic called sick in pattaya as I got sick on my last trip, I thought I got it from a bargirl but now I wonder if it was the air con.

Thanks for the tips next time it will be the first thing I do.

day 2, when rested and sober for climbing on the chair.

but yes most hotel filters will be filthy and it's usually pretty easy to undo the grills and remove them for a good rinse in the shower

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
