Filters for Bathroom Extractor Fans

Has anyone found a place which sells the gauze covers that sit in the bathroom extractor fans?

Try asking your Hauswart; ours gave us extras when we moved in.

Re: Filters for Bathroom Extractor Fans

Got a roll of the gauze from my local Migros some time ago and cut it to size each time the filter needs changing.

I can't remember what it was called as I didn't keep the outer packaging but I found it in the section where they sell nails, electrical socket plugs and the like. It was immediately obvious from the clear packaging what it was and which was just as well because handygal I sure ain't!

I guess any store that stocks hardware items will have it.

Hope that helps.

Re: Filters for Bathroom Extractor Fans

As the bathroom is not very fatty nor oily, I simply vacuum clean it carefully, and then wash it gently with dish-washing detergent if necessary.

While the filter is out, vacuum around the plastic guard, and brush it if necessary to remove the stubborn dust. Dry the filter overnight and refit it.

This filter is there to protect the fan motor from sucking in all the talcum powder and dead skin and hair, and then overheating.
If you follow these cleaning instructions it will normally become clean enough for a hand over inspection.

Re: Filters for Bathroom Extractor Fans

For some reason I could not find a filter made specifically for the bathroom but there was one for kitchen extractor hoods. So just took that and cut it to size. Available at Hornbach.
