Our History

Ovenu started as a one-man band in 1994, with owner Rik Hellewell at the helm. His dedication to learning every oven make and model to provide the best service proved itself as he incorporated the company in 1999.

His first branch was in the town of Wokingham in Berkshire and it expanded relatively quickly to the point where there were four vans responding to demand in the area. Sharing his knowledge and experience through in-depth training with his franchisees,

Ovenu has been offering the UK an unparalleled cleaning service for well over 25 years! Cleaning 4,000 ovens and proving his concept over five years before starting the franchise business, Rik has since helped over 200 franchisees achieve their dreams of running successful businesses of their own.

Ovenu has also begun expanding abroad, establishing successful Ovenu franchisees in Australia, New Zealand and a derivative in America.

Ovenu has grown into the UK’s most experienced oven-cleaning franchise, with over 100,000 satisfied customers every year.

Ovenu is the market leader in UK domestic oven cleaning franchises.

Ovenu has been featured in national publications such as The Express, The Daily Mail and Real Homes. Our franchisees have made their mark in local publications such as The Northern Echo, Shropshire Star and the Grantham Journal. As well as many mentions in Franchise World Magazine and Global Franchise. Watch Rik Hellewell explaining his journey so far:

Our Process

Booking an Ovenu technician is easy. Simply fill in the form with as many details as possible, even better if you can add photographs. Then we can contact you with our precise quotation. When you’re happy, we’ll book an appointment, confirm it immediately by email and turn up promptly. A friendly face, ready to clean!

The Ovenu process involves dismantling key components of your appliances such as the door, interior panels, fan, and shelves, and placing them in our unique dipping tank with our proprietary non-caustic and biodegradable products. While these elements soak, our fully trained oven cleaning technicians will get the inside of your oven back to its former glory.
Technicians strictly adhere to comprehensive health and safety measures to ensure a safe environment during the cleaning process and the whole process will leave your oven in a near-showroom condition.

Services We Offer

If you’re at home, open your oven and look inside. What do you see? Is it anywhere near as clean as you’d like it? Considering most people use their ovens on a regular basis, it’s no surprise that dirt and grime build up quickly. High temperatures can bake food spillages onto the surface, making it incredibly difficult to remove and that’s where we come in.

Ovenu is a professional domestic oven cleaning service specialist, with cleaning technicians up and down the country. We clean Conventional Ovens, AGA, Lacanche and other Range Cookers, as well as Extractor Hoods, Hobs and Microwave Ovens. We also offer our services to Landlords and Tenants. Safety is key so we carry out background checks and vetting procedures for all our technicians. View more of our Oven Cleaning Services.

Payment Options

Much like our products, our prices are bespoke. Ovenu offers a firm quotation from the details you provide, either over the phone or via our online contact form where you can include images.
For example, if you have a large, 4-compartment range oven but only want 2 of the compartments cleaned, that’s exactly what we’ll quote for rather than the entire appliance. Read more information about our Pricing Policy.

Our Ovenu technicians take payment via cash, card or BACS and operate a ‘Pay On The Day’ policy so you get to see the results before paying a penny!
