How to Clean Bathroom Exhaust Fansby HomeRepairExpert.com
A dirty bathroom exhaust fan will do its job poorly. One way to check the fan's performance is to hold a tissue up to its grille while it is running. If the tissue flutters, it indicates that the fan is struggling and needs to be cleaned. But, if the tissue hugs the grille, you can put off deep cleaning for another day.
Things You'll Need
- Liquid dish soap
- Rag or dishcloth
- Vacuum cleaner with nozzle hose
- Stiff paintbrush
Step 1Disengage the circuit breaker that goes to the fan.
Step 2Turn the switch off to the exhaust fan.
Step 3Remove the grille from the exhaust fan. Depending on the fan style, this may involve unscrewing screws.
Step 4Wash the grille in warm, soapy water, using liquid dish detergent.
Step 5Rinse and dry the grille.
Step 6Vacuum the fan blades, using the hose nozzle of the vacuum cleaner.
Step 7Wipe the blades off with a damp cloth.
Step 8Remove dirt or dust from the motor by brushing with a stiff paintbrush.
Step 9Reassemble the exhaust fan and turn the circuit breaker back on.
