One of our first jobs on site is to strip down the hob/oven to get to the dirty areas which often can’t be seen. This includes the fan, light bulb housing and any internal panels as well as all the burner housings on a hob. These are cleaned in our special heated bath on site.

Any food that is spilt onto an oven rack is baked on and leaves residues in the form of carbon deposits.

Our cleaning process bring up chrome oven racks like new!
The oven fan
The oven fan is hidden away behind a panel. It is a major source of grime from carbon deposits.
A good soak in our cleaning bath, the right detergents and some hard graft does the trick!!
The oven door
The oven door is often the dirtiest component in an oven due to the fan blowing excess food and fumes onto the glass. Most ovens have an inner glass and an outer glass. Debris and dirt are often found on the inside of the glass. The only way to get access to this is to split the door to gain access to the internal glazing. This can be tricky, depending on the model of oven
The oven compartment
Cleaning the main oven compartment is one of the dirtiest part of the job. It requires a combination of detergents, pastes, tools, scrapers, brushes and last but not least… HARD GRAFT AND PATIENCE!!!
Oven compartment & rack
The built up carbon deposits and grease that can be found in the main compartment of an oven can affect the taste of the food. At worst, they can be fire hazard or cause food to become contaminated. It is important to use the correct detergents for specific components to ensure the oven is cleaned in a safe manner.
Whilst they don’t usually carry as many carbon deposits as the main oven, the burners in particular can become very dirty. Another area requiring attention is around the controls. We soak all burners in our special heated bath and remove any excess dirt with brushes to bring them up like new. We even give the exterior of both the hob and oven a coat of special polish on completion to leave it with a gleam and looking like new.
