The alarm went off just as it does every morning and you head toward the kitchen to get that ever important pot of coffee brewing. As you round the corner you instinctively swipe at the light switch, you hear the click, but the kitchen remains dark. You give it a couple more flips just to be sure and then ponder “when was the last time I changed these fluorescent lights?” After a trip to the store and retrieving your ladder from the garage you are only a couple flicks of the wrist away from a newly illuminated kitchen. From your new bird’s eye view you realize how dirty your kitchen light fixture is, and as you attempt to remove the cover to exchange the lights, you discover it is also quite greasy. But why?
Having a stove full of pots and skillets is no strange sight in south Louisiana. The aromas that fill our homes are nothing short of enchanting. But along with these incredible meals and delicacies come grease particles, smoke and other air pollutants. Not only can some of these elements be harmful but they can take a toll on other aspects of your kitchen and home.
Just as you noticed that slippery layer of grease on the light fixture, a similar reaction can occur on your cabinets, countertops, furniture and linens. So how can you keep your kitchen cleaner and safer with clear air and also enhance your home’s value? The answer is simple, with a range hood.
A range hood is an exhaust system that hangs over a cooktop. It removes airborne grease, combustion products, fumes, smoke, odors, heat, and steam from the air by evacuation of the air and filtration. In addition to the positive environmental effects, these hoods can be custom designed to enhance to the aesthetics of your kitchen.
