Bathroom Exhaust Fan Before / After

Does your bathroom deep cleaning routine include your ventilation fan? If not, it should. When used and maintained properly, your ventilation fan helps reduce mold and mildew. When it’s neglected, it can host all kinds of airborne particles that can accumulate on the blades and the vent. Follow these six simple steps to keep your bathroom fan functioning properly.

  1. Flip the circuit breaker for the room.
  2. Remove the vent cover and soak it in warm water and dish soap.
  3. Vacuum the fan blades to remove any dust and particles.
  4. Wipe the blades with a damp cloth.
  5. Remove dust from the motor and around the motor with a stiff, clean paintbrush and vacuum up any debris.
  6. Replace the cover when it’s completely dry.

It’s important to run your ventilation fan during every shower and for 30 minutes afterward to reduce moisture in your bathroom and the potential build up of mold and mildew.

If you suspect mold may be an issue in your home or when you need a home inspection, call the Florida Inspector from Buy Your Side Home Inspections. 407.780.0911.
