The materials needed to clean a fan may vary depending on the type of equipment you use. If it is ceiling or floor, if it is portable or tower type. In general you will need the following items:
Screwdriver or Phillips Wrench
Dry cloth or absorbent paper
1. Turn off the equipment
Never, under any circumstances, perform maintenance or cleaning electrical equipment while they are plugged in. Therefore, to ensure your safety, it is not enough to leave the button in the off position, it is important that the socket is fully
disconnected from the wall.
2. Dismantle the equipment
Traditional fans, in general, have a housing around the blades to protect users, but this housing prevents you from being able to properly clean all the corners where dust and dirt lodge inside the fan. For cleaning to be effective, disassemble your fan using the screwdriver and the manufacturer’s guidelines.
3. Clean the parts
Remove the bulk of the dirt with a soft brush. If the fan has not been cleaned for a long time or if it is exposed to grease, remove as much of the coarse dirt available in the fan as possible in this step.
4. Wash the parts
Using water, neutral detergent and a soft sponge, wash the parts thoroughly until all the dirt has been completely removed. Do not splash water on parts that have electronic components. These should be cleaned with a soft brush or dry cloth.
5. Dry the parts
Dry all parts that have been washed in soap and water well with a soft cloth or absorbent paper so that they are completely dry.
6. Assemble the equipment
Assemble the fan by fitting all parts in place and screwing everything correctly. If you want, put a drop of lubricating oil in the propeller socket so that it works better when it freshens you. When fitting the propeller, check the mark that tells which side it should be inserted.
