How to clean the extractor fan filter

An extractor fan filter full of residue and fat constitutes a fire risk. Therefore, if you live in an apartment, you should clean your extractor fan filter every 3 to 6 months. If you live on a corridor, AF Bostäder cleans your filter regularly.


  1. Remove the extractor fan filter from the cooker hood and place it in the sink (if there is room) or on a shallow tray.
  2. Pour hot water over to cover the filter, add washing-up liquid and leave it to stand for a few hours or overnight.
  3. Pour out the water and rinse off the extractor fan filter. Clean the filter holder.
  4. Leave to dry and then put the extractor fan filter back in the cooker hood.

If you need a new extractor fan filter, contact your caretaker.
