To eliminate germs and odors from the kitchen, the cleaning and maintenance of the hood is needed at least once in a month. This instrument contains an absorption filter in its interior, which requires proper maintenance to ensure proper suction. Over the months the filter tends to soak grease, limiting the effectiveness of aspiration and thus producing bad odors. Let’s see how to proceed with the cleaning and maintenance of the hood.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE OF THE HOOD: FILTER
Let’s start by replacing the filter. Firstly, get a new filter and then disassembled, or loosen, the gray hood. Remove it and remove the old filter, the one having a grayish color. Wash the grill thoroughly with soap and water. We recommend to use the dish soap, and if the grid is particularly greasy, soak it in a container with hot water, a glass of vinegar and a few tablespoons of baking soda and leave it for half an hour. This operation can proceed in two ways:
- Take a new filter and insert it in a place of the old one and finish mounting the grid of the hood (which should be done at least in every three months).
- In a large pot of stainless steel heat up the water. When it reaches to the boiling point, travasatela in the pot, then add three or four spoons of baking soda and let it melt with the aid of a long-handled ladle. Soak the filter of the hood in the solution and let it soak for a couple of hours, then remove it. Rinse under running tap water, then place it on a soft cotton cloth and wait to dry completely. This done, put the filter in place.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE OF THE HOOD: EXTERNAL PARTS
– While you have put to soak the grill and wait to replace the filter, you can take the opportunity for a more thorough cleaning of the hood. Obtain a degreaser and spray it over the entire inner surface, leaving the product to act for a few minutes and you will see the dirt away from the sides of the hood. If the deposits are more resistant with the help of a soapy scouring pad, rubbed well on the dirt until it you will see it disappear. Finally with a soft cloth dipped in warm water, rinse well the entire surface.Also try to visit our next blog regarding limescale removal from shower at our blog section.
