Have You Cleaned Your Dunkirk Home's Exhaust Fans?
When you are doing your daily, weekly, monthly or even seasonal cleaning, does cleaning your bathroom exhaust fans ever cross your mind?
If it has been over 6 months or you never have clean your exhaust fans at all, you should get to it right away. Exhaust fans present great fire hazards. An exhaust fan is used to eliminate steam from the bathroom that cause fogged mirrors, windows and damp walls as well as remove odors. You can imagine what is passing through those fans and over time the lint that is building up. Build-up of lint can cause the fan to become over-heated igniting the lint, plastic fan blades and the combustible wood structure.
Some newer exhaust fans have a sensor that will automatically turn off the fan if it starts to over-heat but with that being said you should not always rely on it. It is important that you clean and maintain your exhaust fans twice a year. If you can see lint building up on the outside of the fan, it is time for a deep cleaning! If you start to notice a bad smell or hear a notice, it may be time to replace the fan.
Don't let the small things go unnoticed!
