How to clean a Duct Blaster® of the residue from a glycol-based smoke generator or fogger

Ever wondered how to clean your Duct Blaster fan after using a glycol-based smoke generator or fogger? Simply follow these instructions to get rid of that residue.

Unplug the fan from the controller.  Clean all parts of the fan using soft shop cloth. You can use paper towel, however we recommend a soft cloth. Clean the fan housing, motor mount hardware, exit guard, fan blades, as well as the outside of the motor, and the flow sensor.  You can remove the exit fan guard to reach more of the internal parts.

With any remaining residue, wipe down with a diluted solution of Simple Green or other general purpose cleaner.  Dilution can be as little as a 4 to 1 but no more than 2 to 1.  Using a soft shop cloth with the solution sprayed on the cloth, wipe the fan housing, motor mount hardware, exit guard, fan blades, as well as the outside of the motor, and the flow sensor.

Make sure the holes of the flow sensor are unobstructed.  You can use a pin or paperclip to clear the holes.

Make sure that everything is reassembled and dry before plugging in the controller and using the Duct Blaster fan.
