HVAC Maintenance Tips
Clean the Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fan blades tend to gather dust over time. Now that they will be rotating more often and at a higher speed, prevent them from churning dust in your home. Switch off the fan and wipe the blades clean using a damp cloth. Spray a liquid cleaner if the dirt layer is really sticking. Use a step stool or platform ladder to reach the fan. If you don’t have a ladder, you can also use a long ceiling-fan duster.
