Few of us give much thought to the range hood that takes up a significant amount of space over the stove. It is, however, an absolutely essential appliance. That range hood helps keep your indoor air as pure as possible by drawing up all the grease, smoke, steam, odors, and fumes, and exhausting all those pollutants to the outdoors.
At least once per month, especially if you cook a lot, you should give your range hood a good top to bottom cleaning. Use a natural, citrus-based cleaner on the hood to clean up any accumulated dust and stains. Then unhook the housing that holds the filter and fan in place. Most range hood filters can be put through a regular dishwasher cycle. That makes keeping it clean easy, right?
If your range hood has been around for many decades and is just not working as well as it used to, it might be time to consider ripping it out and replacing it with a new one. Consider, too, that the latest range hoods come equipped with a series of modern and convenient technologies. Cleaning reminders, multiple fan speed options, multiple power grades, touch sensitive options, and even timed on and off functions.
Not to mention the varied styles and sizes available today, too.
