Kitchen hood filter

How you should maintain your kitchen hood depends on the type of kitchen hood that you have. Does your hood have carbon filters? When cooking, moisture and smells are released into the air. The carbon filter ensures that these odours are neutralized and clean, fresh air is blown into the kitchen. When the filter becomes clogged it is important to replace the filter as quickly as possible. This way you prevent dirty air getting blown into the kitchen and the motor of your kitchen hood from using more power because it has to work harder.

TIP! Carbon filters cannot be cleaned or washed, but should be replaced every 3 to 12 months, depending on your cooking behaviour.
