When it comes to kitchen decor, nothing beats a gorgeous copper range hood. Copper stove hoods add much more visual enjoyments to your cooking space. Copper kitchen range hoods may be easier to maintain than those made of other materials. With that in mind, we will cover in detail how to clean and maintain the copper range hood!

Fobest copper range hoods are treated with a clear lacquer sealant to provide additional protection, which means that all but the most tarnishing require only warm water and mild detergent.

 

Regular cleaning: Wipe down the copper range hood with a soft cloth or sponge regularly to remove any dust, grease, or other debris. Use a mild detergent mixed with warm water to clean the surface gently. Avoid abrasive cleaners or scrub brushes that can scratch the copper.

 

Avoid harsh chemicals: Harsh chemicals like bleach or ammonia can damage the copper and should be avoided. Additionally, acidic substances such as vinegar or lemon juice can also harm the copper surface. Stick to mild detergents or cleaners specifically formulated for copper.

 

Protect against moisture: Copper can tarnish when exposed to moisture, so it's essential to keep your range hood dry. After cleaning, make sure to dry the copper thoroughly to prevent water spots or stains. Avoid hanging wet or damp items on the copper range hood.

 

Prevent scratches: Be cautious when placing objects on or near the copper range hood to prevent scratches. Avoid using abrasive scrub brushes or rough materials that can damage the surface. If necessary, use gentle cleaning tools like soft cloths or non-abrasive sponges.

 

Handle with care: When cleaning or performing maintenance on the copper range hood, handle it gently to avoid any accidental dents or bends. Copper is a soft metal and can be easily damaged if mishandled.

 

How often is it cleaned?

Naturally, it also depends on your cooking habits. If you don’t prepare a lot of food frequently, cleaning the copper range hood once per season will be more than enough. On the other hand, if you cook all the time (meaning each day), cleaning your range hood every month or two is the smart way to go.

 

By following these care tips, you could maintain the unique custom appeal and functionality of your copper range hood for years to come!
