Proper maintenance and care of your rangehood can help extend its lifespan and ensure that it operates efficiently. Here are some tips to follow:
- Clean the filters: The filters in your rangehood can become clogged with grease and other debris over time. Clean the filters regularly to keep the rangehood operating efficiently. If your rangehood has a washable filter, wash it in warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly, and let it dry completely before replacing it. If your rangehood has a disposable filter, replace it as needed.
- Clean the exterior: Wipe down the exterior of your rangehood with a damp cloth to remove any grease or dirt. Use a mild detergent if necessary, but avoid using abrasive cleaners that can scratch the surface.
- Check the fan: Make sure the fan is working properly by turning it on and checking that it is drawing air in and expelling it through the ducts. If the fan is not working properly, it may need to be repaired or replaced.
- Check the ducts: Make sure the ducts are clear and free of obstructions, such as bird nests or debris. Clear any obstructions and clean the ducts as needed to ensure proper airflow.
- If your rangehood is not ducted and has a carbon or charcoal filter, please ensure these are replaced every 3-4 months depending on usage.
- Use your rangehood: Use your rangehood every time you cook to prevent grease and smoke from accumulating in your kitchen. This can help extend the lifespan of your rangehood and improve the air quality in your home.
By following these tips, you can help ensure your rangehood lasts for many years and operates efficiently, which can help keep your kitchen clean and comfortable.
