Kitchen Exhaust Hood 

Why Must You Clean Your Kitchen Exhaust Hood? 

People often forget to clean the kitchen exhaust hood filter because it’s hidden out of sight. However, it’s important to clean it every so often – when left uncleaned, the kitchen exhaust hood might lose its effectiveness as the accumulated grease would block the filters. Additionally, grease is flammable and could cause a kitchen fire when it’s not removed.

How often should I clean the kitchen hood filter?

The purpose of a kitchen exhaust hood is to absorb all the airborne grease from your cooking. Thus, how frequently you clean the hood depends on how often you cook at home. 

Also check out on StyleMag: How To Keep A HDB Open Concept Kitchen Clean & Organized

If you’re someone who cooks daily, you would have to clean it more often as compared to someone who cooks once in a while. A good maintenance strategy would be cleaning it once a month so that the grease buildup won’t block the airflow.

Step 3: For really stubborn food stains, sprinkle some baking soda on the surface. Cover the hob with kitchen towels that have been dampened with hot water and dish soap and let it sit for 15 minutes.

Step 4: Remove the towels and wipe the surface dry with a clean, damp sponge to remove any residue. Wipe it dry with a clean cloth and you’re done!

Watch the video below to get a clearer idea of how to clean your induction hobs:
