Spring is finally here, though depending on where you live, it may not feel like it. Regardless, it is time to get your hands dirty, and your house clean. This three-part series will explore how to clean uncommon and forgotten areas that people tend to miss.
In part one, we will go through the procedure of cleaning your filter vent found over the stove. Cleaning this filter is easy and important. Over time, the filter can get so blocked with grease that is loses its effectiveness. Since this piece is often neglected, when you remove it be prepared to find grease. This is a good thing, it means the vent is doing its job.
The first thing you need to do is fill a sink with boiling hot water. If possible, boil water on the stove and carefully dump it into the sink. If you are unable to boil water, use the hottest setting possible on your faucet. Add dish soap. Place the vent in the hot water and allow it to soak for 10 minutes.
After soaking, take a non-abrasive scrub brush and scrub the filter. Rinse and dry the filter and replace it. Repeat as often as needed. Typically, cleaning once a month is good enough.
Now you know. Below is the recommended product that can help you get the job done. Good luck!
