Get a good ventilation system and save energy costs immediately

The ventilation grille outside your home works hard to filter the air from outside of dirty and unwanted substances. It also filters the humidity from inside to outside, preventing moisture from lingering in the home. A clean and optimally functioning ventilation grille guarantees a good ventilation system which in turn ensures fresh and clean indoor air in your home. This makes an exterior wall grille and its cleaning very important.

A well-functioning ventilation system keeps more warm and fresh air in the house, saving you a lot of energy costs every month. Ideal right?

When should I clean my ventilation grilles?

Cleaning the external grille is extremely important. To ensure the proper functioning of the grille, we recommend cleaning the external facade grille at least twice a year. You can always check yourself whether the grille needs cleaning or replacement. By unscrewing the grille and checking for dust or other unwanted objects, you will immediately know whether you need to clean the grille or whether it can continue to function for a while without a refreshment.
