How To Clean Your Kitchen Filter

As the hood of your stove collects more and more grease over the years, there will come a time when you absolutely must clean it. If you fail to do so, you might inadvertently be making it difficult for air to circulate and for excess heat to dissipate out of your kitchen. This increase in temperature and odours can have a negative impact on other areas of your home. If are moving homes within Sydney, contact the us as we are the go to solution for end of lease cleaning Sydney.

So, what’s the easiest way to clean your kitchen filter? Let’s find out.

The Proven Method

Below, we have an eight-step proven method that can help you clean your kitchen filters without breaking the bank. You won’t even need to leave your kitchen to get your filters looking brand new.

1. Remove Your Filters

Start by removing your filters from your kitchen hood. The method for removal depends on the design of your hood and filter.

2. Run the Kettle

Next, it’s time to start boiling water that you can use to clean the filters. You might need to boil multiple kettles’ worth of water if you have a large sink.

3. Fill the Sink with Boiling Water (May take a few loads)

Next, transfer the boiling water to the sink and allow it to cool for a couple of minutes (not too long).

4. Mix in Dish Soap and Baking Soda

As the water is cooling, mix in your dish soap and some baking soda to create a cleaning solution. Be careful not to touch the water and burn yourself.

5. Place Your Filters in the Water and Soak

Place the filters into your homemade cleaning solution (the water and baking soda) and leave them there to soak. Keep them submerged in the solution for at least ten minutes before removal.

6. Scrub with a Brush

After at least ten minutes, remove the filters and scrub thoroughly with a cleaning brush. Try to remove all visible signs of grease or other particles before moving to the next step.

7. Place in Dishwasher

Next, place the filters in a dishwasher—there must be nothing else in the dishwasher—and program the washer to perform a full cycle. Make sure to place the filters on the bottom rack.

8. Leave in a Drying Rack

After a few hours of drying, your kitchen filters will be ready to return to your stove hood. Just make sure to double-check that they’re completely dry; otherwise, water may drip from the hood.

As you can see, the entire process of cleaning your filters is much simpler than you think. Don’t procrastinate when it comes to cleaning your filters. It’s an easy way to way to improve air circulation and odour removal in one of your home’s most important rooms.
