Exhaust Fans Repair, Maintenance & Installation in Columbus, OH & Surrounding Areas

Bathroom exhaust fans help move moist air out of the room. This function is essential because it prevents mold and mildew from growing on your bathroom walls. However, allowing condensation to form repeatedly on the walls can cause streaking; over time, it can also cause the paint to bubble and separate from the walls and window casings. The worst-case scenario is that moisture can get inside the walls, create a mold-growing haven and ruin the drywall.

Kitchen exhaust fans are typically located inside hood vents positioned above stoves. Kitchen fans help move moist air, food odors and smoke out of the kitchen. However, kitchen fans present additional cleaning and maintenance challenges due to the introduction of grease and other food-related substances in the air moving through the vent. Clean your kitchen vent screen regularly to keep the fan working efficiently and prevent grease fires.
