Ceiling Fan CleaningCeiling fans are perhaps one of the easiest things to clean in your home, but are often one of the most neglected. Seriously, look up at your fan now see how much dust is stuck to the fan blades. It can get quite disgusting. Here’s how to clean your ceiling fan.

Step One

Turn your ceiling fan off and let it come to a complete stop before continuing. This seems like a no-brainer, but many people damage their fan by not letting it stop completely and trying to stop it with their hand. Let it come to a complete stop by itself.

Step Two

Hopefully, you have a ceiling fan cleaner brush. If you do, all you have to do is run the brush up and down the ceiling fan blade. If you do not have a ceiling fan brush, take a damp cloth and wipe down the sides, the top and the bottom of the ceiling fan blade.

Step Three

That is where most people stop, but they are missing quite a bit of dust. Get a ladder and wipe down the top and bottom of the fan body to remove even more dust hair and dander.

That’s it, you are now done cleaning your fan. It really is quite a simple task, but like I said, is one that most people fail to do often. Try to clean your fan at least once a month for the best results. If you have quite a few animals or live in dusty conditions, you might need to do it once every two weeks.
