    Default anyone know where i can get a bag for cleaning split system inside units

    cleaning indoor units gets messy and i need some sort of bag that hooks to the inside unit that will hang under the unit so when i spray stuff on the coils and on the fan blades it drops into the bag and not onto the floor.
    anyone know where i can get such a bag??

    Ive never used a bag before, but have used the premasked tape with the plastic sheet attached for painting to protect the walls when doing this. That and use an offsider underneath holding a towel to catch the majority of it. When you are spraying the coil, the majority should be caught by the tray anyway. Just make sure you give it a good flush with water afterwards.

    How big does it have to be? Rolls of carpet come in poly bags, maybe cut the end of one?

    Congratulations in advance on you 1k post

    Default Poly Bags

    What about using Dust Extractor bags?

    Is it just for a one-off use or do you have several to do?

    Have you tried an air compressor to clean your fan barrel first? Sometimes, unless it is real bad, that is all it will need to clean it up.

    Maybe a wool pack might be the go?
