Excerpt from Maintaining and Cleaning Island Range Hood Liner :
Kitchen range hood liner assists with keeping the kitchen clean and extending the lifespan of a kitchen. All the by-products and contaminated air go somewhere, and the path along which it travels may become contaminated. They also are great at cutting down on grease and grim as well as keeping the air circulating in the kitchen. They do however require regular maintenance and cleaning in order to do this job properly. The filters need to be cleaned and if included, the charcoal replaced. The interior of the range hood liner needs regular cleaning before the fat and grime harden to a yellow sticky mess. That might require the use of a stripper, as normal household cleaning detergents don't work. But by doing so you will be causing damage to the finish. Hoods that are made of stainless steel should never be wiped with bleach or any industrial cleaner, as the will damage the protective layer and cause the metal to blur over time
If you are a light cooker (anything more than pasta is a problem) then checking your filters once a month should suffice. However, when your cooking involves bacon and eggs, fried foods and such, it's best to check those filters and properly clean your range hood at least once a week. Clogged filters and soiled hoods can become breeding areas for all kinds of unwanted bacteria and germs. So don't turn your clean air solution into breeding pollution. Proper care of range hood liner will not only prevent this but also extend the hood's lifetime and provide great circulation and performance.
