*Always ensure the fan is completely switched off and has cooled down before you start cleaning.*
Always use soft cloths to clean blades and motor housings to avoid scratching painted and plated finishes. Ideally your fan should be cleaned every 3 to 4 months.
Cleaning the Motor Housings
Motor housings should be regularly cleaned to avoid build up of dust which may fall into the internal workings of the motor housing.
Use a soft dry or damp cloth to remove dust; do not use a wet cloth. If a damp cloth is used to remove dust then dry motor housing with a soft dry cloth.
Cleaning the Blades
Use a soft damp cloth to remove dust particles from blades. Always dry blades with a soft dry cloth after cleaning. Blades should not be left damp or wet as this will damage blade finishes. It is not recommend for wooden bladed fans to be used in outdoor installations. However, if the fan must be installed in an outdoor location, ensure your fan is fully under shelter and be aware that your wooden blades will need to be cleaned more regularly and may need to be replaced more frequently.
Cleaning Steel Fans
Wipe the fan with a soft damp cloth to remove dust particles, mild detergent products can be used to make the cleaning process easier if they are wiped off immediately after. Do not use harsh or abrasive products like bleach or compound cleaners and always dry the fan with a soft cloth after cleaning.
