usually the home owner or the house keeper. swifter makes a product specifically for this task with an adjustable lenth wand.

in addition to the swifter one, you can also get extended-reach (collapsible rod) electrostatic "feather dusters" to do that - like this -

There are also special bendable dusters that get around the blades well - like this -

For motor cleaning tanding on a step ladder and giving it a good few shots with a can of liquid air or air from an air compressor (actual canned air, NOT the chemical computer cleaners) should do fine to blow the dust out of the motor housing and motor. A clean leaf blower also works nicely (but shoots all the dust elsewhere in the room) - just be sure first that it has not been used as a yard vacuum, and is not spitting out oil with the air. Ditto on oil in the air from an air compressor - make sure the air line has an oil filter in line at the nozzle end to trap any air coming from the compressor or in the line. Personally I like the leaf blower for chandeliers, fans, high shelves and tops of bookcases, etc as part of a whole-room cleaning. Tim Taylor method (from Home Improvement), though some would say that is the Chevy Chase or John Candy method.


Otherwise, for appearance dusting - many house cleaners do this as an added service or as part of a deep or move-in/move-out cleaning. Some window washers also do high spot dusting or washing or polishing.
