The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning the Indoor Space Heater

An indoor space heater is a trending heating solution people use to warm up their offices and homes. However, regular use causes dust and particles to build up on the appliance's interior and exterior, reducing its efficiency. Besides, a dusty indoor space heater may cause serious health issues.

This article elaborates on why and how you should clean your indoor space heater.


Why you should Clean the Space Heater Regularly

If your heater is dirty, it will not only affect its performance but also harm your health and safety. Following are the two main reasons you need to clean your space heater regularly. 


  • Dust Concentration

    Like other home appliances, an indoor space heater also catches dust, building upon its interior and exterior. This accumulated dust has the risk of catching fire. Therefore, cleaning your space heater frequently is essential to remove the dust concentration.


  • Temperature Differences

    A dusty air filter can restrict the airflow into the space heater, causing temperature differences. Restricted airflow can cause overheating and requires an automatic shut-off for safety. Alternatively, it can cause reduced performance, emit a foul odor, and even leads to fire or explosion.



How to Clean the Space Heater Safely

A quick exterior cleaning and vacuuming can help run your appliance effectively when cleaning the indoor space heater.



Prior to wiping and detaching, you should unplug it first. Safety is the top consideration.


Don't use a wet cloth; use a clean, dry cloth to wipe out the excess dust from the heater's exterior.


If there is dust stuck inside, use a brush to move it out. Don't use the cotton yarn, or the leaving cotton will turn out to be the next batch of dust.


Put the space heater somewhere dry and ventilated


Finally, you can also consult a specialist for internal cleaning and repairs to prevent damage.
