One of the most frequent asked questions about the enclosed fan we installed in Steph's office (and in my sewing room) is "How do you clean the blades?"
Since Steph doesn't really clean, she's more of a tidier, cleaning the blades hasn't seem to be a priority for her! But since the question was asked, she set about to show you how it is done.
Here's a view of the enclosed fan in Steph's office. The blades were actually pretty clean which is probably because Steph changes out the A/C filters regularly, unlike me! If you don't change the filters regularly, you probably will find your fan blades get really dirty and will need a good cleaning.
If you have an enclosed ceiling fan of a different type or a portable fan that needs cleaning, a quick Google search should help you find the instructions you need.
I recently did that with one of the Vornado fans that we use on a daily basis in the garage. Unlike the fan in Steph's office, that one really did need cleaning. The way a fan is disassembled for cleaning seemed to be similar but each fan is unique so it would be worthwhile to find the directions for your particular fan to prevent damage.
