The Purpose of Kitchen Exhaust Hood Filters

The purpose of kitchen exhaust hood filters is to distribute and extract fat and grease.

However, the buildup of fat and grease is a common hindrance to the performance of kitchen filters.

It’s important to invest in professional kitchen filter cleaning services and exchange them regularly at recommended intervals.

This will help improve the filter’s airflow, extraction and particle filtration performance, ensuring your exhaust system operates as designed and improving its lifespan. Importantly it also helps to mitigate the risk of ignition from your cooking operations.

 

Benefits of Cleaning or Replacing Kitchen Filters

Why you should clean or exchange your kitchen hood filters:

  • To prevent grease from dropping from the filter onto the cooking surface
  • Ensure optimal grease extraction
  • To prevent the buildup of grease in the filter media mitigating the risk of fire
  • Prevent grease from hindering the airflow and filter performance of the exhaust
  • Regular cleaning or exchanging ensures long-term optimal performance of the exhaust system

 

How Often You Should Exchange Kitchen Filters

The frequency at which you should exchange your kitchen filters depends on the style and hours of your cooking.

For example, if you’re running a busy business, do a lot of deep frying, wok cooking and/or charcoal grilling, you will need to exchange your kitchen filters more regularly.
