These restaurant exhaust hood filters can be easily cleaned by hand washing them with hot water, soap, and scrub or sponge that is not abrasive, or can be put in a dishwasher or soak tank using soap or a non-corrosive cleaner. Regular cleaning highly suggested to prevent build up that could become a fire hazard and to prevent erosion. Cleaning schedules should be determined by the kitchen's volume of use and may be required weekly or even daily.
Cleaning of restaurant exhaust hood filters
1. Remove the filters carefully.
If there is a large amount of thick grease built upon and around the stainless steel grease filters, use a paint scraper to pry the filter out. Wear heavy-duty gloves at all times when handling the filters as the metal edges are sharp and can cut you.
2. Prepare your filter for cleaning.
Lay the filters side-by-side, not stacked on top of each other, at a 45-degree angle against a sturdy surface (NOT on the side of a building, house, truck, or car!). This angle will allow the water to force the grease and cleaning chemicals off the filter and towards the ground, not back at you or onto the clean side of the filter.
3. Safely clean the grease filters.
Clean stainless steel grease filters one by one and takes your time in doing it. Rushing through the job won’t ensure they get cleaned completely. Ensure you are using the appropriate pressure washer settings. Be sure you are using the appropriate cleaning chemicals as well. Regular dish soap won’t cut through this grease! You also need to remember that heavy-duty degreaser removes paint too, so be careful.
4. Keep filters clean as they dry.
As you finish a power washing each filter, prop them up (don’t lay them flat on the ground) against a clean and dry surface with the filter blades horizontally to allow them to air dry.
5. Finish up.
Pressure wash the area then squeegee excess water, but be sure you don’t destroy any property with a strong power washer.
