There are many ways to dust a ceiling fan, but not all of them are safe or effective. We're confident enough to say that ZU’s Double Trouble Mitt is one of the easiest way to dust a ceiling fan. Use a stool or step ladder as necessary to reach safely with the dusting mitt. Hundreds of chenille fingers on the mitt trap and hold dust as you work, preventing you from getting a huge, less-than-nutritious mouthful of dust, and keeping it off your floor as you go. Be sure to dust your ceiling fan as frequently as possible, especially when they are in use, to prevent it from flinging dust particles around your living environment. Keeping the blades clean will also increase your unit’s efficiency and may even have a small, but positive effect on your energy savings. If those benefits aren't enough, cleaning the blades also prevents wobbling, reducing noise and extending the lifetime of the fan’s motor. Of course, you should also be giving your ceiling fans a yearly deep-clean as part of your regular maintenance schedule.
Bonus Tip: Spring is also the time of year when you’ll want to change the direction of your ceiling fan to produce a cool wind effect with downward airflow. During the summer, a ceiling fan should be rotating counter clockwise, or forward, to help cool your home. To produce the opposite effect, and circulate warm air in the winter, the fan should be rotating clockwise.
