How do I clean a fume hood?

Like any equipment, fume hoods need regular cleaning to keep them in good condition. First, make sure that the cleaning agents will not react with the chemicals in the hood.

  • Sash Glass: Commercial glass cleaner. 
  • Painted Steel Surfaces: Mild soap and water, ethyl alcohol or commercial glass cleaner.
