Your flooring vents can easily collect dirt, dust, and grime over time, so cleaning your flooring vents should be part of your regular cleaning routine. However, it’s important to do it right to ensure you get the best results possible.
You should start by removing the vent cover from the floor. Then, using the attachment hose of your vacuum cleaner, remove any loose debris, dust, and dirt from both the vent cover and the duct opening. Pay special attention to the edges and the corners, as these areas can often catch large amounts of debris.
Then, use a bristle brush or a soft paintbrush to gently scrub away stubborn dust or debris on your vent cover. For hard-to-reach areas, you can also use a toothbrush. If your vent cover is particularly dirty, you can use mild soapy water to wash it off. We recommend using a microfiber cloth or rub to gently scrub the cover and then let it dry completely before reattaching it.
After cleaning the cover, use your vacuum cleaner with the hose attachment to clean the inside of the duct opening. Make sure you reach as far as you can without forcing the hose. Finally, reattach the vent cover and enjoy having clean and clear flooring vents.
We suggest cleaning your flooring vents every few months, or whenever you notice them starting to look a little dirty or grimy. If you have any questions or would like more tips on maintaining your flooring vents, contact our team today.
