How To Effectively Clean Ceiling Fans

When you take the time to clean your ceiling fans you want to know that you are doing a complete job.  There is often a lot of dust that collects on the fans and on the lights as well.  Therefore, you would need to know how to clean the ceiling fans appropriately so that they look their best.

1.)   Start by taking a damp cloth and wiping the blades of the ceiling fan.

2.)   Remove the sconces (glass protectors around the light bulbs) on the lights.  You will want to soak these in warm water that also has a small amount of bleach in it and dish soap.  Make sure that you store the screws from the sconces somewhere safe so that you do not lose them.

3.)   Purchase a dusting solution and spray the ceiling fan blades the dusting spry and use a dust rang to whip away the dust.  Be sure to wipe it off completely.

4.)   Once the sconces have had time to soak you will want to wipe them completely with a wet washcloth.  This will help remove any dust and dirt that has been lying on them for a long period of time.  You may need to soak them a second time if the sconces were in your kitchen because they may have a buildup of grease on them.

5.)   Dry the sconces off completely and then place them back on the ceiling fan with the screws you had set aside.

Many people often forget to clean their ceiling fans.  This is something that should be done on a regular basis because you are only spreading dust around your room when you turn the ceiling fan on.  Try to make this a regular part of your cleaning routine. Cleaning your fans will also ease any allergies you have by removing the allergens found in dust.
