During the hot summer months, there is nothing like sitting in front of my electric fan with a delicious glass of lemonade after a job outside. The cool air blowing in my face makes me feel like I'm relaxing on a beach somewhere in some exotic location. However, one thing that really bugs me is when I turn on my electric fan and dust comes out instead of fresh air.
I knew the reason this was happening was because I had stored this appliance upstairs in my attic during the winter months. My friend David advised me that I should periodically take a few minutes to clean it every week, but I never listened to him. When I took it down a few days ago, it made me realize why I should have heeded my buddy's advice.
After conducting research online, I finally found an easy way to clean our electric fan. These tips are simple, and only require a few household tools. If you need to give your fan a good cleaning, you can avoid frustration by following this method.
Before you begin, remember to turn off and unplug the fan. Then, unscrew the front grill of your electric fan. This may seem intimidating for people that aren't familiar with tools. But, don't worry, it's simple as pie. Most phillips head screwdriver will open this appliance right up.
Once you've detached the grill, dunk the blades in a container filled with soapy, warm water. Make sure that after you've done this, you thoroughly dry the blades using a rag or old t-shirt. Examine each blade to make sure the grime has come off the electric fan. If it has, you can re-attach the grill. Take that same rag and go over the outside of the appliance, including the buttons.
Plug in the fan and turn it on. In almost no time, your electric fan should be working as well as the first day you bought it!
