An Oven Cleaning Company You Can Trust
Ovenu’s company history started in 1992 when the owner and Managing Director, Rik Hellewell, heard about a mobile BBQ cleaning concept that was taking off in New Zealand. The thought of a mobile oven cleaning company was developed over the next couple of years until Ovenu was formally established in 1994. After registering the brand, Rik patented the oven cleaning process tank, which is still used by every Ovenu technician today.
Rik managed and operated his own oven cleaning company for five years, to prove his concept worked before forming Ovenu Franchising Limited in 1999. Since then, the Ovenu network has expanded throughout the UK and even beyond to Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Despite this huge expansion, the same high standards of customer service and quality results are kept at the heart of every oven cleaning franchise – so that Ovenu remains one of the most trusted oven cleaning companies in operation.

The best way to clean a really dirty oven is by dismantling the appliance and soaking the components in a heated dip tank with a proven non-caustic oven cleaning formula. Professional oven cleaners use this process to return really dirty ovens back to a near showroom condition. Whilst the components are soaking in the dip tank, they use other environmentally friendly products to clean the rest of the oven, before putting it back together again.
The best cleaners for cleaning ovens are:
Ovenu Tank Mix Powder
Wpro Gas Hob & Oven Care Kit
Astonish Oven & Grill Cleaner
Bicarbonate of Soda and Vinegar
Find out more about which oven cleaning products really work and which you should avoid.
Your oven should be cleaned thoroughly between every two and 12 weeks. You may have to clean your oven more regularly if it is being used on a daily basis, or if you’re a particularly messy cook. Grease and grime can quickly accumulate, the longer this is left to bake on the harder it is to remove. You can stay on top of this by giving your oven a quick wipe down after each use.
Remove burnt stuff from the bottom of your oven by mixing a combination of baking soda or vinegar together as a paste and leaving to soak in. Return with a scratch-free scourer to scrub away any residue. In cases where burnt food has severely accumulated at the bottom of your oven, a professional oven clean may be required in order to shift the stubborn residue.
Cleaning an oven that has never been cleaned before may require time and perseverance if you are trying to do the job yourself. Shop-bought oven cleaning products are better suited for ovens that are not heavily soiled, and DIY methods such as baking soda and vinegar can only do so much. Hiring a professional oven cleaner may cost more than buying these products, but will be a much more efficient route to cleaning an oven that has never been cleaned before.
The fastest way to clean the inside of an oven is by using a daily spray of vinegar and baking soda, or just wiping down with hot water and washing up liquid. A quick wipe down after each use will prevent grease buildup which would necessitate a deeper clean. For really dirty ovens that aren’t cleaned regularly, a professional oven cleaning service can be the quickest way to get the best results.
Oven cleaner can be dangerous, depending on which one you use. For example, Oven Pride’s Deep Cleaner contains sodium hydroxide and requires the use of gloves in order to avoid irritation from chemical burns. Many oven cleaners use caustic sodas which come with their own risks and can also produce unpleasant fumes. Professional oven cleaners have access to environmentally friendly oven cleaning formulas that do not pose these risk, whilst remaining effective.
Clean the glass on your oven door by following these simple steps:
Mix baking soda and water into a loose paste and then spread this across the oven door glass.
Wait 15 minutes to allow the paste time to work.
Use a non-scratch sponge scourer to remove clean the glass, using a splash of water to help rinse away the grim.
Wipe away any residue and assess whether you’ll need to take another pass.
Once the glass is clean, use a microfibre cloth to buff up to a shine.
If you don’t clean your oven you could risk your appliance falling into a state of disrepair. For example, a grease-stained oven door makes it impossible to check on food without opening the oven and losing heat. Allowing grime and dirt to accumulate means that your oven could produce smoke, as burnt-on food is repeatedly burnt and carbonised. This isn’t good for your food or for your wellbeing.
Cleaning your own oven should not make you sick, however you may put yourself at risk of harm if you incorrectly use a shop-bought oven cleaning product. Many of these oven cleaning products contain caustic sodas which, whilst safe for use, do come with their own risks. For example, Mr Muscle’s Oven Cleaner contains sodium hydroxide in an aerosolised form which could be potentially dangerous if sprayed directly into the eyes.
The cost to have your oven professionally cleaned is calculated based on the kind of oven you own and its condition. Most professional oven cleaners provide a bespoke quote based on the state of your oven and if any other additional items (such as cleaning oven trays) also need to be cleaned, as these variables will impact how long the oven clean will take.
The cost to clean a self-cleaning oven will depend on the condition and size of the oven. Self-cleaning ovens are functionally not that different from conventional ovens, so you should not expect to pay significantly more for a professional oven clean because of this.
You should be able to cook with your oven directly after having it cleaned, however, this may not be the case if you choose to do the job yourself. If you have decided to use shop-bought oven cleaning product then you should make sure to follow the instructions carefully to ensure that you do not inadvertently aerosolise any unpleasant cleaning chemicals in your oven.
Ensure that the oven is disconnected so there is no risk of breathing in gas whilst cleaning.
Inspect the bottom of your gas oven for burnt on food or grease residue.
If the bottom of the oven is only lightly soiled then you may be able to use a simple baking soda and water paste to clean it.
Spread the paste over the problem areas, leave for 15 minutes and then scrub away residue with a non-scratch sponge scourer.
If the bottom of the your oven is heavily soiled then you should hire a professional oven cleaning service to clean it.
You can use vinegar to clean your oven. Fill a spray bottle with half a cup of vinegar and top the rest up with water. You can use this as a preventative cleaning solution to stay on top of oven grime. Alternatively, place the solution in an ovenproof bowl and then bake at your oven’s highest temperature to steam clean tough stains.
You can use Bar Keepers Friend to clean your oven door glass. This American stain remover and all-purpose cleaner can be used for a wide range of purposes, including cleaning your oven door glass. The product comes in powder or bottle form, both act as a powerful degreaser which can cut through grease stains with ease.
You can use Pink Stuff to clean inside your oven. This is another popular all-purpose cleaner that comes in a useful paste form. Although non-toxic, the paste is mildly abrasive which makes it a useful tool for removing grease stains and burnt-on food. Spread the paste across any affected areas, or the entire oven if you wish. Leave to soak in and then return with a non-scratch scourer sponge to remove the residue. You may find that you’ll need repeated treatments in order to properly clean the inside of your oven this way.
You can take an oven door apart to clean the glass, however, doing so will require a screwdriver and an extra pair of hands to help lift the glass out. Lay down old towels to protect your floor and then unscrew the door from the oven. Then, dismantle the door so that you can remove the glass and clean using water, baking soda and a non-scratch scourer. Dry thoroughly with a microfibre cloth before reassembling and attaching the door.
You may need to run your oven directly after cleaning it with a shop-bought product in order to rid of any residual chemicals. Make sure to check the instructions carefully and ensure your kitchen is well ventilated to avoid breathing in any fumes. If your oven has been professionally cleaned with eco-friendly products then you will not need to heat it in order for it to be safe to use.
Oven cleaner residue should burn off if you set your oven to its highest temperature for 20 minutes. Shop-bought oven cleaners can often leave an unpleasant odour or smell after being used which can linger in the oven for weeks after. A professional oven cleaner will use eco-friendly products that will not leave a residue after the job has been completed.
You can clean your oven with baking soda and vinegar. Mixing these two common store cupboard ingredients together creates a chemical reaction that can be a useful tool to shift stubborn grime or burnt on food. You can also both of these separately to clean your oven with great effect.
Baking soda will not harm a self-cleaning oven. Whilst some oven cleaners are not suitable for use in a self-cleaning oven, baking soda will not cause any damage to the self-cleaning liner and is safe to use. You may find, however, that baking soda is not effective at removing stubborn stains, so you may still require a professional oven cleaning service instead.
You can’t properly clean between the glass on an oven door without taking it apart. Whilst there are some ‘hacks’ online which suggest feeding clothes hangers or pipes through the gap in your oven door, this would not be an effective means of removing stains or grim from this area. Taking the oven door apart is the only way of properly cleaning this glass.
Remove hard stains from your oven by applying a paste of water and baking soda. Leave this to soak for 15 minutes and then use a non-scratch scouring sponge to remove the stains. If the stains remain then you may need to reapply the paste and leave overnight. It may be easier to hire a professional oven cleaning service to clean the entire oven, especially if stains are baked on.
You can use Windex on oven glass to give it one last buff after it’s been cleaned. Windex will not be effective in properly cleaning the oven, as it does not have the right abrasive or degreasing properties to do so.
Dirty ovens have the potential to cause fires, especially if they have been left to accumulate grease. The Office of National Statistics reported that 1 in 5 fires at home were caused by appliances in 2018. By continually using a dirty oven you run the risk of causing a fire.
You can and should be in the house when your oven is self cleaning, however it’s advisable to open windows for ventilation and then leave the room if possible. The fumes produced by the self cleaning process are unpleasant and should not be breathed in if at all possible.
You shouldn’t leave the house when your oven is self cleaning. The self cleaning process essentially involves the oven being turned up to its highest setting so that any stuck on dirt is burnt off. This naturally creates a great deal of smoke, so it’s important for windows to be open for ventilation purposes.
If you leave your oven racks in whilst the oven is self cleaning then they may be permanently damaged. Temperatures inside your oven whilst self cleaning can far exceed what the racks are designed to withstand, this could lead them to become warped and discoloured.
A professional oven clean takes around 2 hours to complete, depending on how heavily soiled it is. The larger and the dirtier the oven is, the longer you can expect a professional clean to take. Your oven cleaner should be able to give you an estimate on time, as long as you provide them with information about the state of your oven.
