Do you know how to care for your Tramontina range hood?
Everything you purchase demands a certain level of care so it can last longer. To help you care for your range hood, we have compiled some tips.
When you have a range hood, either the exhaust or filtering type, some maintenance is necessary to ensure it's clean and efficient. The range hood must be clean to ensure its efficiency and performance, and this process must be done at least once every two weeks with a damp cloth and mild soap. If your range hood has a charcoal filter*, don't forget to replace it every four months or so!
Another thing you should do is wash the metallic filter, which is responsible for filtering grease. Try to clean it at least once a week to ensure a better performance from the range hood for longer.
If you are cleaning it manually, place the metallic filters in a hot water solution with mild detergent. Let it soak for some time and then brush the filters carefully, rinse, and dry. Wait until the filters are completely dry before reinstalling them in the range hood. Oh, it's important to remember not to use the range hood without the filters!

3. Did you know that the activated charcoal present in the range hood filters has the power to remove liquids, gases, and impurities?
Activated charcoal is obtained from burning certain types of organic materials and treating it with water vapor at high temperatures under a controlled atmosphere, which leads to the opening of pores in the charcoal, giving it excellent absorbing properties.
