How to Clean Baffle Hood Filters
Sep 11, 2018

Fire code regulations require that you keep your kitchen baffle grease filters clean and in good working order. A thorough cleaning is the only way to ensure hood filters don’t become overly clogged with grease, which can cause the following problems:

Impaired filtering capabilities

Smoky air accumulation in the kitchen

Excessive heat in the kitchen

Increased air conditioning costs

Extreme fire hazards

Exhaust system strain

Maintain a clean kitchen, promote safety and keep your utility bills under control by make baffle hood filter cleaning a top priority. Depending on your cooking volume, this maintenance task should take place monthly, weekly or even daily. Here’s a look at the three cleaning methods you have to choose from.

Hand or power washing
This is an effective, albeit tedious way to clean baffle grease filters. Follow these steps to clean a filter by hand:

Remove filter from the hood safely using a hood filter lifting tool, such as the Baffle Boss.

Place the filter in a sink filled with hot, soapy water. An alternative is to take the filter outside and power wash it.

Scrub with a non-abrasive sponge or scrubber. Avoid bleach and other harsh chemicals, since they can corrode the metal.

Dry the filters immediately after hand or power washing them and reinstall them in the hood.

Dishwashing
Save time by cleaning filters in the dishwasher. This method works well with hinged hood filters. Follow these steps:

Remove a baffle grease filter from the hood.

Open the hinged filter and place it in a high-temperature dishwasher.

Fill the soap compartment the way you would if running a load of dishes. To avoid corrosion, never use bleach or harsh cleansers.

Make sure all residue is removed from the filter after the washing cycle is complete.

Dry the filter completely and reinstall it in the hood.
