The heating season is over - it's time to take care of your radiators. They're no longer hot and can be cleaned and even painted without fear of chemical fumes.

Whatever you want to do with them, you'll have to start with a deep cleaning. This is not easy, because any radiator has a ribbed surface and a lot of depressions where dust collects. OBOZ.UA figured out how to easily cope with this task.

Dust on radiators can be a problem. If there is a lot of it, then its thick layer turns into an insulating pillow. Therefore, in winter, the heater starts to give off too little heat, and its efficiency decreases. That is why it is important to clean the radiator regularly.

Of course, you can buy a bunch of intricate brushes with long and curved handles to reach every nook and cranny. Or you can do something much simpler and use a household appliance that you most likely already have at home.

Yes, we're talking about a regular hair dryer. Turn it on at maximum power and blow the radiator from all sides. The hot air will blow away all the dust, dirt, pet hair, etc. After that, wait about 10 minutes for the particles to settle, and vacuum the floor near the heater. Repeat the procedure several times if necessary.

Of course, it will not be superfluous to wipe the radiator with a damp cloth afterward. But a hair dryer alone will cope with the main dirt.

This cleaning procedure should be carried out at least twice a year. After the heating season, clean the radiator as part of a big spring cleaning, and before it starts – to ensure greater efficiency of the device.
