Niagara Falls Hood Filter
Cleaning and Maintenance

Although it may not seem necessary, regularly servicing your hood filters is key to making your entire hood system last longer. Some of the benefits of regular hood filter cleaning include fresher air, reduced potential for fires, and improved power production.

When grease builds up, it attracts other food and particles which will clog your system and make it run less efficiently. This then affects how well your stove runs, how well your exhaust fans work, and how much energy is used.

While yearly deep-cleaning is the general recommendation, you should adjust the schedule as needed depending on how frequently you cook and what types of food you typically make. Allowing grease to build up will only make it harder to clean later on down the line.

Hood Filter Cleaning and Maintenance

Hood Vent Filter Cleaning for Kitchen Exhaust Hoods

Most commercial kitchens require that hood filters be cleaned at least once every 30 days, but most restaurants prefer to do weekly cleanings. This may seem tedious and unnecessary; however, regular maintenance is an important step toward safety and efficiency.

You should also consider the following when deciding on a maintenance schedule:

  • Depending on what you cook, you may need to clean filters more often

  • If you cook with a lot of oil, be aware that your filters will gather and trap that grease, so cleaning is necessary to ensure that it doesn’t clog your system

  • Do not neglect the back side of your hood filter. Since they are typically mounted on top of one another, the back side of one filter may accumulate grease that has dripped through the front of another filter

Niagara Falls Hood Cleaning knows that your kitchen should always be food-ready. That’s why our staff only use environmentally friendly tools and techniques when we clean, in order to get the job done safely. Depending on the hood filter system, we use boiling and steaming water, baking soda, degreasing soap, vinegar and a non-abrasive scrub brush. If necessary, we’ll utilize more powerful but safer methods.


Our Fully Trained Service Technicians Follow The NFPA 96 (National Fire Protection Association) Standards for Hood & Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning.

It’s for this reason (and many others) that you should call a professional to handle the job.

Kitchen Exhaust Hoods

Kitchen exhaust hoods help keep restaurants and commercial kitchens clean by drawing in dirty air and filtering out grease and other contaminants. The vents on this system then push the filtered and clean air back into your kitchen, keeping it a safe place to prepare food.

Kitchen exhaust hoods play a crucial role in maintaining food safety by cleansing the air of grease and other pollutants. They also decrease fire dangers by warding off the accumulation of grease on ceiling tiles, which can be ignited by heat. Furthermore, installing proper ventilation systems can improve indoor air quality for both staff and customers, which often leads to fewer respiratory illnesses.

Kitchen exhaust hoods must be frequently cleaned and inspected to ensure they’re working properly. If your ventilation system is malfunctioning in any way, it could pose serious dangers to your restaurant or customers.

The frequency of cleaning for your kitchen exhaust system will depend on the quality of your equipment, as well as how heavily it is used. For example, a top-of-the-line ventilation system that has been installed by an expert and receives regular maintenance may not need to be cleaned as often as a basic system that’s been installed through DIY.

To help you determine how frequently your hoods need to be cleaned in Niagara Falls, Ontario, consider the following variables:

How much grease and oil is used in your kitchen on a daily basis? If hot oils, animal fats, and deep frying are common in your establishment, then you’ll need to clean your hoods more frequently.
