I was scared when my air conditioner started to flood

I came to the apartment from labor on Monday morning plus there was an important puddle of water in the middle of the hallway…

I was absolutely plus totally freaked out.

I thought there was a leak in the powder room, however I quickly realized that the water was coming from the closet where the heating, ventilation as well as A/C device is located… There was an inch of water on the floor inside the door. I immediately called my property owner to report the A/C problem. The repair director came to my apartment about 30 minutes later with a tote of tools; she chopped a long line in the carpet plus located an important towel under the padding. The repair director said the A/C was frozen up, then all of the evaporator coils were covered with ice. The drainage line at the bottom of the apartment was filled with mud plus dirt; since the system could not correctly drain, water was backed up into the system. The lack of proper airflow caused the evaporator coils to freeze up as well. The drainage created a puddle of water in my apartment. The repair director cleared the drainage line plus she left the blower to dry the carpet. She apologized for the concern plus blamed it on the groundskeeper. It took many days for the carpet to correctly dry plus then the property owner paid for my carpet to be professionally cleaned. The broken A/C was a lot of inconvenience, however the repair team fixed everything without much trouble at all. I haven’t had any concern with the A/C since then, so I am pretty sure the concern is fixed for good.
