Hello and welcome back to the blog here at Kitchen Creations of WNY! Today, we wanted to take some time to talk about ventilation when it comes to new kitchen design. Ventilation is important while we’re working on transforming your kitchen, and also after we leave to clear up any harmful fumes and or smoke from cooking. 

So, let’s go over three of the top reasons ventilation is so important when doing your kitchen remodel! 

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Cooking and food prep have the potential to release varied substances into the air, like smoke, grease, and various organic compounds. If the air quality in your home is poor, a wide range of health problems can occur, from headaches and eye irritation to potentially more grave health concerns like respiratory problems. Proper ventilation eliminates many of these particles from the air that can enter your lungs, keeping you healthier while cooking, and long after we leave.

Reduced Moisture and Mold Risk

It’s important to remember that cooking and food prep generate a good deal of moisture, which can lead to mold growth. Millions of cases of asthma have been reported to have been caused by indoor mold exposure. Mold can cause skin irritation, wheezing, itchy eyes, and other similar allergic reactions. Without proper ventilation, mold can grow unchecked. Ventilation aids in removing excess moisture from the air, cutting off a vital ingredient for mold growth, and reducing the risk of mold and mildew. 

Extend the Life of Kitchen Appliances 

Cooking typically generates heat, smoke, and grease, which can cut the life of your appliances short. The buildup of grease can eat at your appliances and cause them to work less efficiently. Smoke and other pollutants can discolor your walls and ceilings and even cause damage to them. When you have a proper ventilation plan you can reduce the amount of time you need to spend cleaning walls and appliances and even extend their lifespan.
