How to Clean Kitchen Hood

By following the below steps, you’ll learn how to clean kitchen hood in no time!

Step 1: Grab Cleaning Materials

Gathering your cleaning products and tools is the first step. You'll need a cleaning spray with a degreasing agent, gloves, and microfiber rags. You can also make a solution using a 1:1 ratio of water and vinegar. This solution can easily cut through the grease buildup on a range hood.

Step 2: Wipe Down the Exterior of the Hood

When cleaning a range hood, it's best to work your way from top to bottom. Start by using your microfiber towels and cleaning product of choice to wipe the hood's exterior. Ensure you clean any fingerprints, grease, or food splatters in this area.

Step 3: Clean Underneath the Hood

Underneath the range hood, you'll find grease and oil buildup. You may need to spend more time cleaning this area. Spray this section first and let the solution sit for a few minutes before cleaning to help avoid as much scrubbing.

Step 4: Wipe Off/Clean the Filter

Since the filters of range hoods absorb grease and smoke, they get clogged and need to be cleaned every few months. Depending on your filter type, you can wash or replace the filter for your range hood.

You can put the filters directly in the dishwasher if you're using a range hood like the Comfee Curved Glass Range Hood. This kitchen hood from Comfee includes a baffle filter that you can easily wash with your dishes.
