The importance of Bathroom and Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning
It’s likely you don’t think much about your home’s exhaust fans if you’re like most people. In the bathroom and kitchen, they perform important tasks and shouldn’t be ignored. It is important for each of these types of exhaust fans to ventilate the air outside of your home, and each of them serves a specific purpose.
The exhaust fan in the kitchen removes not only steam from cooking, but also smoke, odors, heat, and even grease. Every time you cook, you should use your kitchen exhaust fan. However, grease will build up on the exhaust fan filters and eventually make its way to the fan itself. If grease is allowed to build up on these fans, it will eventually affect their performance and may lead to their failure. Occasionally, a grease fire may result in a more dangerous situation. As a result, you should clean your kitchen exhaust fan once a year.
NFPA statistics show that approximately 61% of restaurant fires between 2010 and 2014 were caused by cooking equipment or materials, which are the items that begin to ignite and therefore start the fire. Approximately three out of five fires and 38% of direct property damage comes from these sources.National Fire Protection Association
A grease-filled kitchen exhaust fan filter also poses a fire hazard. You should cleaned these at least once a year. Additionally, grease can drip down onto an ignition source, such as hot pans or heating elements, and cause a grease fire. For the safety of those living in your home, it is very important to keep these filters clean.
Bathroom Exhaust can be a hidden danger.
It’s important to have an exhaust fan in the bathroom to eliminate both moisture and odors. As a result, the removal of moisture, the more important function, is critical because mold and mildew can form when moisture is too high. A bathroom with too much moisture could damage or remove paint or wallpaper, among other things. After taking a shower, turn on the bathroom exhaust fan for roughly twenty minutes to dispel any moisture build up. Run the fan for 25-30 minutes when you take especially hot showers.
Don’t overlook bathroom exhaust fans as fire hazards, They can pose a real threat as well. In hot conditions, the buildup of lint and dust on the fan can ignite the materials around it, causing them to catch fire as well. While it is important to use your bathroom exhaust fan long enough to eliminate excess moisture from the bathroom, you should not run it longer than necessary. Our experienced technicians can look at different methods to allow your exhaust fan to appropriate time.
