How To Clean a Dehumidifier

Posted on: June 28, 2016

It’s that time of year again where warmer weather and high humidity levels are upon us. For lots of homeowners in the Chicagoland area, it’s not the temperatures that get the best of us – we can deal with the heat. What makes everything worse is the humidity. Keeping your home comfortable all season long begins with a clean and properly functioning dehumidifier.

Step 1: The first action required when cleaning your appliance is removing the collection bucket, emptying it out and cleaning it off with a soft cloth. Check for mold and mildew and be sure to wipe away any excess mineral buildup.

Step 2: Next, check the filter. This is where dirt and dust collects and in most cases, you can simply run it under warm water to clean it off. Just be sure to check the owner’s manual because not every system is the same.

Step 3: Finally, remove the outer cover and take a look at the coils and the fan blades. Use a small brush to clean the interior parts and wipe them clean with a damp cloth. Then reattach the cover and insert the filter and reservoir.

Now that your dehumidifier is spick and span, you’re on your way to a cooler, more comfortable home.

Have questions about your home’s dehumidifier? Considering making the upgrade to a whole-house system? Whatever the case may be, the experts at ABC are here to help! Give us a call today!
