How to Safely Clean an Aloha Tower Fan

After long periods of use or storage, the Aloha Breeze Tower Fan builds up dirt and dust. Air circulates through the fan and blows these particles through the home, filling it with dust instead of clean air. Safely clean the Aloha Breeze Tower Fan without taking it apart. Harsh chemicals aren't required—common household appliances and water do the trick.

Step 1

Turn off and unplug the Aloha Tower Fan. Take it outside to a clean, flat area.

Step 2

Plug in the hair dryer or vacuum within reach of the fan. Use an extension cord if necessary.

Step 3

Point the hair dryer at the fan, and turn on the cool setting. Use the air flow to blow away all of the dust that's trapped between the grates.

Step 4

Vacuum the Tower Fan's grates with a vacuum brush attachment if dust remains on the outside.

Step 5

Dampen a cloth with water and wring it out. Wipe the fan's base, control panel and any other dirty areas. Allow it to air dry for five to 10 minutes.
