How to Clean Your Ceiling Fan in 5 Simple Steps
19/11/2014

Having a ceiling fan installed at home is a great way to save electricity and to complement the benefits that you get from your air conditioning unit at home.

However, the purpose of providing you with a comfortable place to stay will be defeated if the air being circulated by your ceiling fan is field with harmful microorganisms, germs and bacteria floating in the air.

Remember that ceiling fans only utilize the air present in a room and do not use any fresh air coming from the outside. All it does is circulate air and not throw away or pull them in.

This makes cleanliness within the area where the ceiling fan is located a must.

Here are things you need to prepare:

Tablecloth or sheet Vacuum with dusting attachment Step ladder Ready?

Let’s start off with:

Ensure that the control board of your ceiling fan is turned off. Prepare your vacuum with the dusting attachment (or a fan cleaner for your vacuum) Climb up the step ladder with the vacuum and dust the fan’s blades one at a time. Make sure you get access to the farthest corners of the blades. A lot of pent-up dust may be found on the corners of the fan. Dust the upper and lower portions of the fan blades. Repeat the process if necessary. There you have it – five simple, easy to follow steps in cleaning your ceiling fan blades! Depending on how often you use your fan, you may have to repeat the process all over again until the dust has been wiped off.

Remember that cleaning the ceiling fan is both to ensure that its life is extended and you maintain a healthy working and resting environment at home.

The major challenge

A major challenge you might encounter during cleaning your ceiling fan is the presence of rust. If your fan is old, there’s the tendency of rusting regardless of how well you clean it.

Be mindful of the first signs of rusting to make sure it doesn’t disrupt the function of your fan. A rusty fan can either slow down its speed or worse, can make it stop entirely. Once it’s stuck, you may try to oil your fan and see if it starts working again.

If not, then you may want to consult a technician on the appropriate course of action.

The end game for your fan is when it stops working anymore even after the technician fixes it. Sometimes, you may be asked to by a new motor or to buy certain parts to replace existing ones.

But if you add the cost of replacement plus the price you pay to the technician, it may equal the total cost of buying a new ceiling fan unit. You may have to consider going for buying a new one instead.

When was the last time you cleaned your ceiling fan? Are you experiencing any problems about it so far?

We’d love to hear from you!
