It is very important to maintain and replace your hood filters on a regular basis. Hood filters or grease baffle filters are specially designed to remove the grease vapors from the air before they get into the exhaust hood ducts. By properly maintaining exhaust hood system filters, you are maintaining an important line of defense against fire in your restaurant or commercial kitchen. Count on BEST HOOD CLEANING for all of your hood filters services in Sacramento, California.
SO WHAT IS A HOOD FILTER, ANYWAY? AND WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?
It's a metal square (or rectangle) insert that fits into the opening of the ventilation system. The purpose of a hood filter is to filter out grease from the smoke. If, say, your hood filter was non-existent or overdue for a change, you would have yourself a high-risk fire situation.
Cleaning Your Hood Filters
Best practices recommend cleaning your hood filters daily. This will prevent grease build-up and maximize their filtering capability. A filter that is already dirty cannot filter out more junk, it will only clog up the filter. BEST HOOD CLEANING recommends cleaning your hood filters in the dishwasher. However, if you have aluminum filters, or galvanized hood filters, we wouldn't recommend cleaning them in the dishwasher because this will result in damage.
If you can't put them in the dishwasher, well you know what that means. Wash by hand, of course. We know, it's no fun. However, it's probably more fun than having to run your customers out because of a fire or a board of health inspector shutting the place down.
Replacing Your Hood Filters
Don't ignore the obvious signs. You should always be very attentive to your hood system and the hood system filter. Check it out on a regular basis. Does it look okay? Does it sound okay? Watch out for dented and/or corroded hood filters. If your hood filter is giving you some serious push back when you're trying to clean it, it may be time to call a professional hood filter service company.
