How To Clean Dust From Inside Radiators

How To Clean Dust From Inside Radiators

Radiators are manufactured in such a way that dust and dirt can become trapped inside the fins and not forgetting behind the back of the radiators which can take some time to clean!

If the output of your radiator drops too much, then you won't just feel uncomfortable but your home will begin to accumulate moisture. 

Moisture that's being allowed to cool to a watery substance.

If there is a buildup of dust and dirt inside your radiator then you're at risk of having a damp problem that will only get worse in time. This can result in the development of mold issues.


Why Should You Clean Inside And Behind Your Radiators?

Radiators are part of the home which are often overlooked until they stop working!

At that point we realise how they can be taken for granted, often they are neglected in the natural environment in the comfort of our own homes.

Radiators get little or NO attention during the routine periodic clean like the other parts of your home, that’s because they often blend into the background and are forgotten!

Radiator cleaning is an essential part of keeping your home clean and tidy.  

The main reason for cleaning is for efficiency. Keeping your radiator in good condition, both inside and out will maximise the heat output of your system.

This means that you’ll be making the most to maximise the efficiency of your radiator and saving energy at the same time which improves hygiene.

Learn the importance of maintaining your heating system here.


Current methods for cleaning inside and behind Radiators!

Hairdryer – Believe it or not, some people use their hairdryer to get the dust out from the inside and down the back of the radiator!

This you think should help you to get a lot of the leftover dust down and out from in and behind your radiator – BUT NOT recommended as you are only blowing the contaminated dust into the air you breathe!!


Radiator Cleaning Brush - Some of you may use the obvious the specialist radiator cleaning brush – but really is this the easiest way? 

Don’t forget to put a towel or dust sheet under the radiator – to catch all the debris! 

Once that’s done get your brush in between the fins and behind the back of that radiator and from top to bottom start pushing that dust and dirt right out back into the air that you breathe!!

Vacuuming - With a radiator fixed closely to the wall limits the areas that you are unable to reach or see where the dust has accumulated

Removing a Radiator off wall to clean and for decorating! – This can be a very difficult, costly and time consuming and can be a messy procedure as you have to drain down the radiator, disconnect then remove from the wall to gain the access required to achieve a satisfactory result!

Now there is an alternative to make this difficult and time-consuming task more efficient and effective to achieve superior results for improved hygiene, cleanliness and decorating as a result of full access!


How Rotarad access enables you to clean inside the fins of the Radiator!

Simply having full access behind your radiator makes it possible to use a filtered vacuum cleaner to remove the dust from inside your radiator as shown in the demonstration video.

This video shows that once the Rotarad access kit has been installed it enables full access to the base at the back of the radiator and how you can use the vacuum cleaner to clean inside the fins of the radiator.



As you can see from the video your vacuum cleaner enables the dust to be sucked from accessing the base of the radiator down to floor level.

Rotarad can make this method so simple. With a little time and effort, your radiators will be looking clean and ready to provide heat throughout the winter season.
