How To Thoroughly Clean Your Bathroom Fan In 6 Easy Steps

Blog Introduction: The bathroom fan is often one of the most neglected appliances in the home. But did you know that it should be cleaned every six months? A clean bathroom fan is important for many reasons. It helps remove smells, airborne pollutants, and moisture from the air. Not to mention, a dust-covered fan is inefficient and can lead to mold, mildew, and even a house fire. 

Fortunately, cleaning your bathroom fan is easy and only takes a few minutes. Follow these six steps to get your bathroom fan sparkling clean in no time!

 

Step One: Remove the grille and vacuum the blades with a soft brush attachment. The majority of the dirt and dust will be removed at this stage.

 

Step Two: Scrub the motor housing and any other hard-to-reach areas with an old toothbrush. This will help remove any leftover residue.

 

Step Three: Wash the grille with soapy water, rinse well, and dry it before replacing it. 

 

Step Four: Replace the lightbulb if necessary. We recommend using a long-lasting LED bulb to help cut down on maintenance costs. 

 

Step Five: Test your fan to make sure it’s working properly. Turn it on and stand near it to see if there is adequate airflow. If not, consult a professional to see if there are any other issues that need to be addressed. 

 

Step Six: Make a note in your calendar or set a reminder on your smartphone to clean your bathroom fan every six months. By following these easy steps, you can help maintain your bathroom fan clean and operational for many years.
