character from the movie, HairsprayThat very product that holds your hair up all day, can “hold-up” your bathroom exhaust fan! Hairspray gets sucked through the fan and attracts dust. This unchecked phenomenon can cause poor air return and premature equipment failure.

Hairspray can gum up bathroom exhaust fans

Excess buildup of hair spray and dust in bathroom exhaust fans can create enough heat to cause a fire. Do your mirrors fog while your fan is running? That is a symptom of a “held-up” exhaust fan that needs cleaning or replacement. It is recommended that bathroom exhaust fans be inspected, cleaned and lubricated annually.
