It’s a fact; dirty hood filters remove less grease from the air stream above your kitchen cooking area and reduces the airflow through your hood exhaust. When grease filters get dirty, they can reduce the airflow to the point that grease vapors leave your kitchen and flow directly into your dining area.
For this reason alone, it’s necessary to clean your grease baffle filters between hood exhaust cleanings. Depending on cooking volume, this may need to be done daily, weekly, or monthly. Using a Hood Filter Soak Cart can make the job simple.
