Summer Time Fan Cleaning

If you're like me then you have floor and ceiling fans running all summer long to move air and keep you cool. As great as fans are they are also magnets for dust, dirt, mold and bacteria. Make sure you open your fans and vacuum, wipe out, and disinfect the blades periodically throughout the summer. You can also vacuum the surface of the fan between cleanings to collect dust.

I pulled apart this little desktop fan in the photo to clean it and was completely disgusted by what I found. I had to use a tiny bottle brush cleaner to get at the blades. This fan was a lot harder than most to clean, but I'm sure glad I took the time.

Imagine if this is what's inside your fan what it is blowing around your house?!
