What We Do

The Air Conditioner Wet Wash Association is an industry association for the rapidly emerging industry of ductless air conditioner cleaning. 

At the heart of the association is the health and well-being of the "consumer of conditioned air". The consumer breathes "conditioned air" as a consumable product in restaurants, theatres, hospitals, workplaces, hotels and many other public places. The consumer of conditioned air is then naturally entitled to a reasonable assumption that consumption of the conditioned air product will not cause them harm, that is, the duty of care of the owner of that asset to ensure its level of hygiene is managed.  

The Air Conditioner Wet Wash Association mission is To improve the Indoor Air Quality for all Australians that utilise the most common form of Air Conditioner being, Ductless Split System Air Conditioners

How We Achieve Our Mission 

We achieve this for the consumer by delivering several strategies     

  • The association has developed the ACWWA HVAC Wet Wash Guidelines for Ductless Split Systems. This is our core guideline and contains details of what and how the HVAC Wet Wash process is delivered to achieve the required "As New" level of hygiene for the consumer.      

  • The association provides recognition for industry professionals who choose to become Certified to clean and Verify air conditioners to the requirements of the guide as ACWWA Certified HVAC Wet Wash Specialists. Certified specialists also agree to operate within the industry to a voluntary Code of Practice.     

  • The association supplies Certified Specialists with the ACWWA Hygienically Cleaned Seal. The seal is fixed to the front of an air conditioner where "As New" hygiene has been achieved through a wet wash process and is Verified compliant with the Code of Practice and the ACWWA HVAC Wet Wash Guidelines.     

  • The association provides industry representation and consultation for members and consumers of conditioned air, through the ACWWA HVAC Wet Wash Industry Consultative Committee.    

  • The association also provides guidance for consumers of conditioned air in the ACWWA Consumer Guide to Air Hygiene Assessment for Ductless Split Systems. This guide assists the consumer of conditioned air in understanding hygiene levels and compliant cleaning practices for ductless air conditioners.




Clean Filters is a Good Start 

Cleaning the filters of your ductless air conditioner should be performed at least monthly as a user level process. However just cleaning the filters is not a full HVAC Wet Wash. 

Use an ACWWA Certified HVAC Wet Wash Specialist to clean your air conditioner back to "As New" hygienic cleanliness at least once every year to ensure the best possible environment for healthy conditioned air 


Look For The ACWWA Hygienically Cleaned Seal 

The ACWWA Hygienically Cleaned Seal is your best indicator the air conditioner has been effectively cleaned and sanitised inside and out to the "As New" level of hygiene as required in the ACWWA HVAC Wet Wash Guidelines, with fit for purpose equipment, work practices and cleaning products. 

You Are Not Alone on Air Hygiene 

The Air Conditioner Wet Wash Association have established the ACWWA HVAC Wet Wash Industry Consultative Committee to represent the interests of both the consumer of conditioned air and our industry members. We work with industry to ensure the consumer is protected with our mission

That every ductless air conditioner is cleaned at least once a year, back to as new condition, in a safe manner by a suitably trained and qualified professional, using professional equipment and environmentally friendly cleaning products for the good health and protection of the consumer of the conditioned air output.


Your Voice at Work and Play 

A "Consumer of Conditioned Air" is any end user who consumes the conditioned air that is supplied to them as a product or service, where they are not the responsible owner of the assets which processes the conditioned air product. 

Consumers of conditioned air are very welcome to become Consumer Subscriber members and add your voice to the mission of Air Conditioner Wet Wash Association (ACWWA). 



Is Your Air Conditioner Clean?

As a consumer of conditioned air you can perform a simple hygiene assessment of any ductless air conditioner. Simply turn the air conditioner on, then get a bright light and look through the vents where the air is coming out. Look carefully and identify any mould or biofilm or other contaminates.

The assessment is now in your hands. Ask yourself if the contaminates you see were actually on the outside of the air conditioner, would you clean them? If you would clean it on the outside, then certainly it should be cleaned from the inside where your breathing air is being processed. 

ACWWA provides guidelines for our ACWWA Certified HVAC Wet Wash Specialists to clean and sanitise air conditioners to a high standard that effectively removes all the contaminates that can do harm to the consumer, providing the best possible environment for healthy conditioned air.

Professional Equipment which is "Fit for Purpose" 

Effective air conditioner wet wash cleaning requires a specialised set of skills and equipment. Many cleaning products and equipment may be suitable for domestic cleaning purposes however they can damage the air conditioner or fail to effectively remove all contaminates. All our ACWWA Certified Wet Wash Specialists meet stringent requirements in the Code of Practice and the ACWWA HVAC Wet Wash Guidelines, to ensure the right level of hygiene is achieved safely, effectively and to a professional standard.
