You don’t want your kitchen to smell like something you cooked a few days ago. Range hoods (vent hoods or extractor hoods) have exhaust fans that help you accomplish this by providing odor removal and ventilation. When your range hood breaks, your kitchen may suffer. Grease build up and smoke can damage your walls and cabinets as well as reduce the air quality in your house.

Common Vent Hood Issues We Repair
From smoke not getting cleared to a broken fan, if you notice any of these problems, give our experts a call!
Smoke is not being cleared by the vent hood.

Air isn’t venting outside.
This is typically due to a broken fan blade, kitchen exhaust fan motor, or a blower motor that has stopped working. It’s also possible something may be stuck in the blower motor. Call our experts to troubleshoot and repair your kitchen exhaust fan.

Common Types of Range Hoods We Repair
Vent hoods come in a variety of types. Some use a mechanical fan with filtration to exhaust the air outside, where others will filter the air and recirculate it back into your home. Regardless of the type of vent hood you have, the Deer Park vent hood repair technicians are ready to help! The types of vent hoods we can repair and clean are:
These range hoods exhaust air to the outside of your home.
Non-Ducted or Recirculated
These hoods recirculate air after filtering it.
Typically non-ducted, these vent hoods offer replaceable filters.
These are installed against the wall and appear similar to a home chimney.
Also called island hoods, these are typically suspended above cooking islands.
These blend in with cabinetry and have ventilation built into the wall.
The size/strength of range hood your home needs depends on how big your kitchen is. The vent hood should cover the full width of your range and be placed over at least 50 percent of your burners. Specifically, the Home Ventilating Institute recommends a minimum of 40 CFM for every linear foot of range.
