Cleaning Tip for Any Air Vents
Do you have air vents in your home that haven’t been cleaned in a while, or, perhaps, ever? Keeping your air vents clean also means keeping the air clean in your house, and that’s why it’s probably a smart idea to dust them off on a regular basis. With these simple cleaning tips for any air vents, the task will become so much easier that you might find yourself doing it once a month, or maybe even every couple of weeks. It will only take five minutes or less, and you can breathe much easier afterward.
There are all different kinds of air vents in our homes. There are heating vents, air filtration vents, air conditioning vents, and air exhaust vents. Perhaps out of all of these, the air exhaust vent is the most common, because most of us tend to have one of these in our bathrooms. The purpose of the air exhaust vent is to remove moist air after we shower or bathe, and therefore keep the bathroom’s humidity level down. A bathroom that is not properly vented, either by a vent or an open window, means it’s one that can potentially become soggy. An overly-humid bathroom, if left unchecked, can lead to paint damage, drywall damage, and worst of all, mold growth. Once mold begins to grow anywhere in the home, it can be very tricky to remove. So, if you have an exhaust vent in your bathroom, this is one that you will definitely want to clean using these simple vent cleaning hacks.
You can use any type of cleaner for cleaning your air vents, but it’s highly recommended that you go with an all-natural cleaner – for a variety of reasons. First of all, the label regulations for commercial cleaners are very lax in North America, which means you won’t find a list of ingredients on your favourite store-bought cleaner label. Not knowing what’s in your cleaning products can be a major issue because they can potentially contain toxic materials. When dealing with your air vents, in particular, you’ll want to know what kind of cleaner you’re using because it’s going to affect the air quality of your home. That’s where eco-friendly cleaners come in handy, whether you buy them off the shelf or create your own homemade cleaners at home. A half-and-half DIY cleaning solution of vinegar and water can work well. Or, you can even just use warm water. It will all work just as effectively, but you won’t have to worry about adding chemicals to your daily airflow.
