Large_venthood

WHY DO THIS?


Whether you use your stove to make soup from scratch or just reheat a can of Campbell’s, grease is collecting in your vent hood. Cleaning your vent hood every six months keeps dirty air from crimping your cooking style. You’ll enjoy your soup-cooking session a lot more. We promise.

How To:

Need a hand? To hire a professional cleaner service to degrease your vent hood, check Angie's List to find a service provider in your area.

  1. 1

    Before you begin, consult your owner's manual for any unique instructions for cleaning your circulating/filtering vent hood.

  2. 2

    Inspect the activated charcoal filter and replace when necessary.

  3. 3

    Remove the filters and use a standard household degreaser/cleaner and a sponge or soft rag to clean the inside of the hood. Make sure that the unit is turned off and take care not to spray the degreaser on the light bulb or light bulb socket.

  4. 4

    Inspect the motor and fan blades to see how greasy they’re getting. If they look greasy, review your owner’s manual to see how to clean them.
