That being said, I would like to talk about a proper way to vent a kitchen hood, so that you don’t end up with all sorts of messy stains and unwanted moisture and smells in your lovely kitchen. πŸ˜‰

It is essential to properly vent your range hood, so that any smoke, fats, vapors, and grease produced whenever you cook, don’t create an unwanted settlement and unsightly stains on the ceiling in your kitchen. πŸ™ Trust me, you don’t want to ever let any of that to happen to your kitchen!!!
