Range hood fans remove the smoke, excess moisture and grease from cooking, so it is very important to follow a few kitchen hood cleaning tips to keep it in tiptop shape.
Keeping your kitchen range hood vent working efficiently requires cleaning regularly, especially if you cook often. People wipe the outside of the range hood but completely forget about the fan and filters.
Sometimes dirt cakes the blades on the fan, so they do not work efficiently and this can cause the motor to either overheat or quit working.
Be sure to turn the kitchen hood unit off before you start to clean it.
Here are some kitchen hood cleaning tips that turn a dirty job into one that is quick and easy...
After the degreasing solution removes the grease, wash it in hot, soapy water, rinse and be sure it is dry before reinstalling. You can wash your filters in the dishwasher but it could leave a greasy film inside, which is difficult to remove.
If the filters are very dirty, it could also clog up the drain lines on your dishwasher. Washing the hood filters in ammonia and hot water also works well.
These activated charcoal filters are usually available in hardware stores or sometimes from the store where you bought your hood.
By following some of these kitchen hood cleaning tips your range hood will look as good as when it was new.
