Here's an easy way to remove the lint buildup on your ceiling fan screens. Purchase a lint roller, you know the sticky kind use to remove lint from your clothing, they look like masking tape. Tear off a sheet from the roller, pad it against the screen. No more buildup. For heavy buildup a couple sheets may be needed.

Now that is a great idea. I have been taking the screen off - removing about 8 screws, dropping several in the process. Thanks for the idea.

I remodeled mine where the screen is held up by magnetic strips. All I have to take loose is the crank,take out hose off and put back on. No fuss no problem.

I just use the stiff brush attachment on our canister vac. I run the fan at low speed while vacuuming the screen so no particles fall to the floor. The vacuum will easily overcome the low speed of the fan to pull particles off the screen.

Paz,

Basically the same here. When doing the regular vacuuming I take the hose and dusting brush from the tool that is already in my hands and give the screens on the ceiling fans the once over. Always clean and never built up enough to require anything special.
