Extractor fan filters can often be neglected by those living in rental properties, meaning that having to deal with accumulated grime when they move out is a common problem.

We’ve broken down how to clean an extractor fan filter into 8 easy steps:
1. Remove extractor fan filter from the main fan component
2. Place the filter in a sink filled with very hot water, dish soap and a cup of white distilled vinegar
3. Leave the filter soaking in the mixture for as long as possible – at least 30 minutes
4. Remove the filter from the water-based mixture and sprinkle baking soda on it
5. Use the scrubbing sponge to work the baking soda around the filter, into its nooks and crannies until most of the grime is all removed
6. Clean out any remaining dirt with a toothbrush – useful for awkward corners
7. Leave the filter to dry
8. Once it’s completely dry, place the filter back in the extractor fan
