Cleaning up an entire bathroom is something that needs to be taken seriously, especially if you are surrounded by small toddlers. But most of my friends living in Wollongong, Woonona, and Helensburgh told me that they always forget to clean up their exhaust fan. If you are also doing the same mistake, then it means you are allowing mould and mildew to breed within your bathroom walls and tiles – which is definitely not good for a health.

To genuinely avoid humidity and heat within your bathroom, you should clean up your exhaust fan twice in a month. When your exhaust fan passes the air properly, it will automatically remove the excess moisture from your bathroom.

Since it gets dirty quickly, make sure that you give it deep clean using simple yet effective tricks. Here, I am going to tell you three simple steps that I use to clean my bathroom exhaust fan in less than ten minutes.

Let’s get started!

A list of Cleaning Tools:

  • Screwdriver
  • Vacuum Cleaner with a hand-held attachment
  • Scrub brush
  • Duster
  • Ladder

Three Simple Exhaust Fan Cleaning Steps:

  1. Take out the fan cover

With the use of a screwdriver, you can take out all the fan covers to remove all the grime that collects in between the blades of your exhaust fan. If it has spring clips, you can press them together to get rid of it.

Now, spray a dishwashing detergent and wipe off all the dirt using a sponge. Don’t forget to clean its back surfaces. After that, rinse it off using fresh water -this is how you can start your cleaning process.

  1. Vacuum your uncovered exhaust fan

This is the right time to remove the dust collected on the blades using the nozzle of your vacuum cleaner. A vacuum cleaner can help you fetch all the hidden dust within your exhaust fan.

If you don’t get time to clean up your bathroom or exhaust fan, you can hire a professional house cleaning expert like Bond Cleaning in Wollongong.

I came to know about them when I was shifting from my rented apartment to my new home at Wollongong. They helped me in getting my bond money back from my property agent. Their end of lease cleaning service is beyond the expectations and that’s I opted them for spring cleaning and Oven cleaning services as well twice in a year.

  1. Clean the fan motor

This is one of the most crucial steps. You should know the proper technique of cleaning the duct and motor of your exhaust fan because they are very delicate. You can use a scrub brush to scrub out the dirt from congested parts. Ensure that you clean it very carefully. You can also wear gloves to avoid cuts – just do a safe job.

That’s it! You are done with the exhaust cleaning process in less than 10 minutes. All you need to do is to remove the fan covers, wipe off all your blades, vacuum the hidden dust, and clean up your fan motor. Just follow these simple tricks and say bye to mold and mildew on your bathroom walls and tiles.
