A ‘simple’ approach to remove dust off radiators using a common household item.
Due to their typically unique forms, RADIATORS can become clogged with dust and filth. However, according to an expert, there is a quick and easy solution to restore their luster.
Vacuuming the floor or dusting surfaces may be part of your daily cleaning routine, but radiators are often overlooked. Radiators can be difficult to clean because of their typically odd forms.
While cleaning out the front of a radiator is simple enough, dust balls, hair, and grime can accumulate in the gaps behind the radiator.
However, Antonio Dengra, CEO of Rointe, an electric heating company, has discovered a “simple and effective” approach to get rid of unpleasant dust bunnies using a common home object.
The trick, according to Mr Dengra, is to use a hair dryer.
“Believe it or not, a hairdryer is a simple and effective way to clean the dust out of the back of the radiator,” he stated.
“To get rid of the cobwebs, direct the nozzle at the upper slots and turn it on full power.”
It’s a good idea to lay down a towel or blanket before you start cleaning.
This will gather any dust that has accumulated behind the radiator while also protecting your floor.
If you don’t have a towel or blanket on hand, dust can also be readily swept up.
If you’re using a hair dryer, simply direct it down the back of the radiator, between the metal and the wall.
This should blow all of the dirt and dust that has accumulated onto the ground.
If you don’t have access to a hairdryer, a microfiber brush or even your vacuum may suffice.
A synthetic fibre that is one-fifth the size of human hair is known as microfibre.
As a result, it’s an excellent dust and dirt collector.
Microfiber brushes with extendable handles can be purchased and slipped down the gap between the radiator and the wall.
It’s better to use a portable vacuum or one with a removable nozzle if you’re using a vacuum cleaner.
Simply hold the vacuum to the gap between the radiator and the wall and turn it on, just like the hairdryer.
This should also be done above the radiator grate for radiators with enclosed “fins” to blow away any interior moisture. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
