Are you looking for some information on how to clean the Vornado tower fan? In this guide, we will share three different methods that you can use for the cleaning job. 

Cleaning Vornado Tower Fan – Step-by-Step

Make sure you don’t use any volatile cleaners for your Vornado tower fan. You can consult your owner’s manual for further guidance. 

Method #1 – Cleaning with a vacuum cleaner brush

Step 1

First of all, you need to unplug your tower fan from the electrical outlet. 

Step 2

Now, clean the dirt from the front angled outlet and the side inlet grilles with the help of a brush that is attached to a vacuum machine. 

📍 Things to keep in mind: don’t use any cleaning chemicals involving thinners, gasoline, or other volatile solvents. Also, keep in mind this method is only for cleaning the accumulated dust on the outset body of the fan.

Method #2 – Cleaning with compressed air can or an air compressor 

Step 1

You need to take your fan outside because you don’t want all the debris and dust from the fan on your furniture and appliances inside. 

Step 2

Make sure you don’t forget to unplug your unit and run your air compressor. 

Step 3

Clean the cage as well as the vent with the air compressor. You can also use a compressed air can or even a duster for this purpose. Just point the nozzle wherever you see the dust and blow the air through blades, cages, exhausts, and vents.

📍 Things to keep in mind: an air compressor is the best way to blow away any dust accumulation, but this compressor can be costly. Instead, you can use an air duster, which will fit a small budget. Make sure to use a mask when cleaning using compressed air. Also, don’t shake that compressed air can when using it. Otherwise, it will spray liquid instead of air. 

Method #3 – Cleaning using a blower fan 

Step 1

Take your tower fan outside and avoid cleaning it within a room. Else, everything inside the room will get layers of dust on it. 

Step 2

As you have already unplugged the tower fan, it’s time to turn the blower fan on and allow the airflow through the grilles of your tower fan. Ensure that you let the air through vents, grilles, exhaust, and everything to get rid of the dust. 

📍 Things to keep in mind: Make sure you always use a mask while using a blower fan, just like in the case of compressed air. Wearing safety goggles would be a good idea to protect your eyes from dust particles. 


You can continue using your tower fan for a long time to come if you take care of it properly. Just make sure you wear a mask and goggles to prevent dust or debris from entering your eyes, nose, and mouth.
