How To Keep Your Ceiling Fans Clean
With the summers already here, your ceiling fans are going to run for longer durations than usual. More use means more dust which can cause your home to become dirtier. Ceiling fans often get overlooked during daily cleaning even though they easily catch dust. A clean and dust-free fan not only contributes to a cleaner home but also increases the durability and functioning of your fan.
Even the best ceiling fans need to be cleaned regularly for better use and maintenance. Even though fans don’t get cleaned frequently, they are quite easy to clean. Here are some quick and easy ways to keep your ceiling fans clean –
Using a pillowcase is one of the most common and easiest ways to clean your ceiling fans. Simply step on a platform or a ladder and slip a pillowcase on one of the blades. Hold from both sides and slide it along the edges of the blade. Repeat the same for each blade. The dust can be uncomfortable to deal with, so make sure you wear a mask that completely covers your nose and mouth.
Spray and Clean
Another quick and efficient way is to use a spray cleaner. Before using a spray, make sure that you clean the ceiling fan with a dry cloth first. A dry wipe is likely to leave behind some dust on the fan when it has not been cleaned for a while. Simply spray on the blades and wipe clean with a dry cloth.
Once done with a dry wipe using a cloth or a pillowcase, you can wipe the blades with a damp cloth or a wet wipe for better cleaning. This will clean off any duster that is left behind during the dry wipe.
Microfiber cleaners are also very effective for cleaning fan blades. They come with long holders which make it easy to reach the fan. You can simply extend it to reach the blades and clean them. The fluffy part of the cleaner will cover the blades well enough to clean them.
Through all of these cleaning methods, ensure that your fan is switched off and take proper safety precautions. To avoid catching any infections due to the dust that is settled on the fan, wear a mask or cloth that completely covers your mouth and nose. Additionally, make sure the ladder or platform you are using is stable and that you are not at risk of falling.
If you want your fans to stay clean for longer and make maintenance much easier, take a look at our anti-dust ceiling fans.
