The condensate drain, which is a small dripping line on the outside of your air conditioning unit, is an extremely vital component of your air conditioning system. This drain is responsible for removing condensation created by the evaporator coil of your air conditioner. If the drain line is not properly cleaned, it might cause the A/C unit drain to overflow and create water damage in your home or office. That is why it is critical to get your air conditioning equipment serviced regularly by specialists to avoid any of these problems. If they occur, our crews at Camelot Emergency Water Removal offer stellar AC unit drain overflow clean-up services.

Clogged Drain Line: A clogged condensate drain line is the most common cause of water leaking from your AC into your home. If the drain line gets clogged with dust, dirt, sludge, or mold, that water backs up into your home. In that case, you'll need to unclog it.
Mold, Algae, and Other Fungus: When an air conditioner's drain pan is full of water, the most common culprit is a clogged drainpipe. Inside the refrigerant coils and pipes is a breeding ground for algae, mold, and the like. Over time, algae and mold can clog the A/C drain pipe and cause water to build up and leak into the drain pan.
Cracked/Corroded Drain Line/Leaks: AC unit drain overflow can also originate from a cracked or corroded condensate drain pan. The drain line can form cracks or holes due to stress, accidental impact, or age. Clogs caused by debris or mold can also cause leaks through an overflowing condensate drain pan.
If a drain line becomes clogged, water can accumulate and spill OVER the "overflow" pan, into the attic floor or HVAC closet, wreaking havoc on your system, potentially causing it to shut down, water flow to stall, or, in more severe circumstances, causing water damage to your home.
Overflowing drain lines from air conditioning units will dampen numerous areas of your home, producing ideal circumstances for the growth of mildew and algae. As these organisms grow, they have the potential to contaminate your indoor air, resulting in health risks. Additionally, they can cause harm to your air conditioning equipment and contribute to condensate drain clogs.
