Deep clean the air?
This is the time of year that we anticipate spending more time indoors, and air quality in our home becomes vitally important to our family’s health. Items such as dusty air filters, ceiling fans, wood stoves, and fireplaces have a dramatic effect on the quality of the air we breathe while hunkered down for the cold weather. This is why it is important to focus on deep cleaning your fans and air filters in order to make reduce the levels of dust, germs, and allergens in the air.
Changing your air filters
Air filters are one of the most overlooked items in the average home. Changing or cleaning your air filter(s) should be a regular cleaning project every month. If your heater or air conditioner does not seem to be providing its usual volume of air, the filter should be the first thing that you check. Experts will point out that a clean air filter is the single most important factor in the proper performance of your HVAC system. The standard guideline is to change the filter every 30 days if you own multiple pets, suffer from allergies, or have a smoker in the house.
How often to you look at the top of the blades on your ceiling fans? Even in the most immaculate homes, ceiling fans are often overlooked. Usually, they run constantly, so we never imagine them to collect dust. However, the buildup can become so heavy, causing the fan to work less efficiently. Most notably, dirty, dusty fans will ultimately lead to breathing problems for everyone in the house. Ceiling fans and table top fans are important for use to circulate warm or cool air, or simply to increase circulation of the air in your home. If you have ever experienced turning on the fan, and getting a blowback of dust and grime, it is an unpleasant experience, to say the least.
Before you deep clean your ceiling fans, turn off the power, and then remove the light fixtures. While you are soaking the globes in a sudsy solution, use your vacuum brush attachment to suck dirt from the motor compartment. The next step is to wipe down both sides of each blade. You would be advised to wear a dust mask while doing this. Wipe residual dirt off the fixtures and thoroughly dry every part before reconnecting them to the fan and restoring the power.
