Ovens are one of the hardest of kitchen appliances to clean, you can easily spend a hundred pounds finding the perfect cleaning solution to solve your dirt and grease problems but in the end you may find that one is not enough to do the job. Most householders do not use their oven as often as their hobs but even if you do not use it that often grease and dried out food can still be left behind when cleaning. The hardest part of cleaning the oven is probably removing the grease build up on the outside and the inside of the oven.
All cleaning products offer to remove grease effortlessly and with one application but the reality is it needs a good scrub and even then you will need more solution. I for one have bought 6 different cleaning products to rid my oven of grease but so far none have come close to getting rid of this grime.
When all domestic cleaning products fail you there is only one solution, call in the professionals. In most cases ovens get so dirty to the point you don’t want to use it because of laziness, many people do not clean it straight after using and let it sit for days to come. This makes the problem worse as dried food will only be reluctant to budge and new grease will build up on whatever was there before. Sometimes a good clean is only needed once a year to help you kick start the cleaning routine, but in some cases you may find that it needs doing on a regular basis.
If you have a house that is being let to students or short term leases then you may find that after each tenant moves out the oven will need a thorough clean before being in an acceptable state to be let out again. In this case you will get your money back through rental income. If you are selling your house and have neglected your oven then once again professional cleaning can also help you make a sale by showing care and clean surroundings.
Professional oven cleaning
With so many companies promising affordable prices you will also need to check that the company is reputable and have a good client history. Some may charge less but not provide a thorough cleaning whereas some small companies will provide a good service. It’s worth asking your neighbours for a good reliable company and going on the internet to find reviews from other consumers before you accept a quote. Don’t be bullied into accepting your first quote and don’t fall for offers such as ‘this weekend only special value’ they want you to accept as soon as possible, get a few quotes and compare before agreeing.
