Ventilation Fan

Moisture in a kitchen can lead to peeling finishes, warped doors, and even mold. Fans attract dirt like a magnet because of the static electricity they create. The dirt can encourage mold growth and restrict air movement. When turned on, the kitchen exhaust fan helps control moisture and remove smelly airborne odors and pollutants.

Keep the kitchen exhaust fan on during and after cooking to help control moisture and remove airborne odors and pollutants. Turn off the exhaust fan when the air is dry.


Cleaning and Proper Maintenance

While maintenance of kitchen exhaust fans is quite often overlooked, a proper maintenance schedule will ensure quiet and efficient operation, increase the fan's lifespan, improve indoor air quality, and keep the unit attractive in appearance.

Clean your Kitchen Fan:

  • once a month
  • if ventilation is poor
  • if moisture is difficult to control
  • if the fan is noisy
