HVAC Air Handler Evaporator Coils Cleaning Guide With Pictures

It must have been years since the evaporator coils in our home's inside air handler unit had been cleaned. The A/C system seemed to be working well, but I wanted it operate at maximum efficiency. So I spent about an hour gently cleaning the evaporator coils.
I took pictures of the process and created a quick guide. I plan on repeating the cleaning again in a few months with a spray can of foaming HVAC coils cleaning solution.

I hope someone finds it to be useful.

You didnt show how you got from picture nine to picture ten. In other words how you gained access to the evaporator coils in the first place which is the whole idea in the first place.
