Cleaning the Ceiling Fans in your Gainesville Apartment
In Florida, a ceiling fan is one of the most common devices residents use to help beat the heat in the home. And since Florida heat is around almost all year long, fan use usually is too. While it might be hard to see it while the blades are spinning, fans still collect the same dirt and dust as the rest of the room – and maybe even more. When this grime builds up around the blades, it can make them less aerodynamic, reducing the amount of air they can circulate. The extra drag also makes the fan motor work harder and can cause it to wear out more quickly while requiring more energy.
Keeping a fan clean also:
- Helps reduce the spread of allergens
- Keeps your rooms looking clean
- Keeps your room feeling cooler
- And more
When you go to clean a fan, be sure to use a good dust collector like a Swiffer or other static dusting cloth and wipe each blade thoroughly. Focus especially on the leading edge of the fan blades and the top since these are the spots where dust will accumulate quickest.
