Cleaning the air hood in your kitchen.

  1. Vipe Down the Exterior: Begin by wiping the outside of the range hood, where grease and dust accumulate. Use thick paper towels or rags with anti-grease dish soap mixed with warm water. Apply this mixture to break up the grease and dust amalgam, then finish up with a basic cleaner spray, such as a vinegar solution, to remove any leftover residue. It's important to test any powerful grease remover on a small corner first to avoid damaging the finish or surface of your range hood​​.

  2. Clean the Underneath Area and Stains: Focus on the underside of the hood around the vent. This area can accumulate significant grease, especially with gas ranges. Use a scrubbing brush for large grease or ash deposits. You can use products like OxiClean or a mixture of warm water and baking soda. For tough buildup, apply a baking soda paste, let it sit for about 30 minutes, and then wipe it off. Finish up with a gentle cleaning spray

  3. Filter Cleaning: The filter, which traps grease, requires careful cleaning. If it's a metal filter, remove it and soak it in a degreasing solution, followed by a wash in warm, soapy water. It can also be cleaned in a dishwasher. Charcoal filters, on the other hand, cannot be cleaned and should be replaced annually or when they lose effectiveness​​​​.

  4. Clean the Range Hood Itself: Ensure the range hood is turned off and the stovetop is cool. Use a household cleaning spray or degreaser, remembering to use a non-abrasive type and avoid spraying electrical components​​.

  5. Vent Cleaning: Regularly inspect the vent leading from the hood to the outside to check for grease buildup, which can impair functionality and create a fire hazard. If there is significant buildup, contact a professional for cleaning​​.

  6. Fan and Motor Maintenance: While the fan motor is generally durable, it should still be checked during maintenance. Clean the blower wheel with a degreaser if it has collected dirt and grease. If problems persist, the motor may need to be replaced

  7. Preventative Measures: Regularly clean the fan blades to prevent dirt and grease buildup. Wash exposed metal surfaces frequently, using warm suds or an ammonia and water solution for greasy surfaces. Always rinse thoroughly after using ammonia. Regularly check the vent for unrestricted airflow and clean the filter frequently, as it collects grease quickly
