Knowing how to effectively clean ceiling fans, without it being a great hassle, poses a great cleaning quandary for everyone. Home owners and local cleaning services alike benefit from being able to clean them in a timely manner. Once you have the magic formula, however, ceiling fans are a no brainer!
Tools for the Deep Clean
Maid to Shine recommends cleaning fans once a week to keep dust and grime from building up on the fan. But before you can maintain the ceiling fan blades, it helps to deep clean the fan first. It sounds as if it takes a lot of effort, but our methods are simple enough. You’ll find it easy to keep the ceiling fans dust free!
To help give your ceiling fan a professional, deep clean gather the following supplies:
· step ladder
· degreasing cleaner
· a dusting tool
These supplies are for ceiling fans that you can reach standing on the step ladder. If you have ceiling fans that are unreachable with your step ladder, try to find an extension tool for your dusting tool. Even if you cannot reach the ceiling fan blades with your hands, an extension tool for your duster can still be used to pull the dust off of the fan.
Deep Cleaning the Fan Blades
After you’ve gathered your supplies and tools, carefully climb onto the step ladder. Use your dusting tool to knock off the layers of dust on the ceiling fan motor. Once you’ve dusted the motor, begin pulling the dust off of each individual fan blade. Pull it off (firmly, but gently) with your duster until all of the loose dust has been pulled off.
Once you’ve cleared the loose dust, degrease any grime that might have built up on the fan blades. Lightly spray your degreasing cleaner onto the top part of the blades, and then use your rags to gently work up the grease and matted dust. Once you’ve finished wiping all of the fan blades, vacuum up any pieces of dust that might have fallen onto the floor while you were cleaning the fan.
Deep cleaning the ceiling fans can be a handy tool in your cleaning routine. It can give your home a handy lift, and it cuts down on the amount of dust circulating in the air. You can even hire Maid to Shine to deep clean your ceiling fans for you!
