How to Clean a Lasko Blower Fan

Updated July 05, 2018

Lasko Products, a worldwide distributor of fans established in 1906, manufactures portable electric fans, humidifiers, heaters, tree stands and utility boxes in addition to other air-conditioning equipment. Among its product line-up, Lasko offers a series of blower fans. These units hide high-velocity fans in a slim, space-saving casing that features narrow air vents. According to Lasko's blower fan user manuals, Lasko blower fans require simple, moisture-free cleaning procedures.

Turn off the fan off and allow it to stop completely. Unplug the unit.

Attach a vacuum nozzle with a soft brush to your vacuum cleaner.

Vacuum your Lasko blower fan's intake and exhaust openings with the vacuum brush attachment. This removes dirt and frees any debris, foreign particles or lint that have accumulated over time.

Wipe the entire exterior surface of the blower fan with a clean, soft and dry cloth. Be sure to wipe inside the grooves of the fan's vent. Pay special attention to crevices and irregular surfaces.


Perform this cleaning process regularly. Make it a part of your normal household cleaning routine. When removing the fan from storage, clean it with this same process before use. Consult your fan's user manual and follow any specific cleaning instructions. Call Lasko's authorised service representatives at 1-800-233-0268 to discuss any issues with your blower fan. The line is open Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.


Never use alcohol, solvents, gasoline, benzine, thinner or harsh chemicals when cleaning your Lasko blower fan. Do not attempt to disassemble your fan. Only clean the body of the fan when performing routine maintenance. Never wet your Lasko fan or immerse it in water.
