Ways to clean your kitchen hood

  • Clean the air filter –First of all you should clean the air filter, which is the part of your range hood that removes particulates and smoke from the air before pushing it outside of your house. The two kinds of filters: a metal and a charcoal filters can be easily removed for cleaning or replacement.

As for metal filter you should remove it, and then put it in a appropriate container filled with enough water to cover the filter completely and when it is already clean wash it with warm water.

For charcoal filter it would be better to replace it annually, or whenever it begins to lose effectiveness.

  • Clean the range hood itself –First of all turn your device off, then let it cool down and clean your device by household cleaning spray or degreaser. You should not  spray the cleaner on to the light bulb or any other electrical components.
