How to Clean Ceiling Fans Quickly and Safely

Ceiling fans offer a lot of incredible benefits for homeowners, by creating a comfortable living space while reducing your utility costs. However, maintenance is key for those who want to maximize their return on investment. Cleaning is one of the most important and cost-effective ways to ensure the longevity and dependability of your fans. However, many people aren’t sure where to start. At Mr. Electric of Fort Worth, we offer high quality commercial and residential electrical services including new ceiling fan installation, ceiling fan repair and ceiling fan replacement. Is it time for you to get rid of the dust and grime on your ceiling fans, but feel overwhelmed by the process? Here are some tips for successful cleaning. 

Why Is It Important to Clean Your Ceiling Fans?

Dusty fans can make the most well cared for home seem unkempt. It can also cause issues for guests and family members with allergies or respiratory illnesses. However, dusty fans can also pose problems with the fan itself since the presence of dirt and grime can cause damage to the motor and other important mechanisms. For this reason, it is a good idea to clean your fans every 1 to 3 months, depending on the frequency of use. 

Basic Cleaning Tips 

Here are some basic cleaning tips that can help make the process simple and effective. 

  • Be careful with fan blades and glass light fixtures, apply the appropriate amount of pressure when cleaning them.
  • Consider buying an extendable pole duster. These tools are convenient to use on a regular basis and can help reduce the amount of dust buildup between cleanings. 
  • For scheduled cleanings, use a ladder and clean the blades by hand using a cloth and gentle cleaning solution that is designed specifically for the materials on your fan such as wood, metal or glass. 
  • When you are finished cleaning, you may want to apply a layer of anti-static or dust-repellent onto the surface with a micro-fiber cloth. An unused dryer sheet can perform a similar function. Doing so will help to deflect dust. 
  • For kitchen blades that have accumulated grease, you may need to use a damp cloth or degreasing cleaner to remove the layer of buildup.
