How to remove grid background on SVG image using Inkscape


I'm using the Meteocons icon set in my project, specifically the SVG files. I noticed they all display on screen with a light blue 'grid' as a background.

How can I remove this background so that the image is fully transparent? I'm using Inkscape. I'd like to keep the canvas/document size the same.

Please bear with me as I am new to graphic design. Thanks in advance.

I opened a few of the SVGs in Inkscape, the grid is just an object. In Inkscape, just single click the grid and press the Delete key.

You can single click and drag the grid, just to make certain that you selected it and not part of the icon.
