Deepcleaning & maintenance

Deep Clean a Kitchen Exhaust Fan

A kitchen exhaust fan removes grease, smoke, steam, and odors from the air as you cook. It is important to make sure that it is cleaned on a regular basis so that the grease and debris will not build up in the filter. Such build up will not only decrease the effectiveness of the fan but can also become a dangerous fire hazard.

Time estimate for cleaning: 20-30 minutes

Time estimate for grease build up removal: 1-1.5 hours depending to the amount of grease
