Why Oven Cleaning Goes Beyond What You Can See

Home » Latest News » Cleaning Tips » Why Oven Cleaning Goes Beyond What You Can See

More often than not, when we clean appliances and surfaces, we generally focus on the areas we can see. After all, that’s where most dirt is attracted and will have the greatest impact on the appearance of your home.

However, sometimes this isn’t enough. For instance, you can vacuum your carpet as often as you want, but it won’t always get rid of that ground in dirt that can cause discolouration. For this, you need to shampoo it fully. Another classic example is when you come to clean your oven.

Some people choose to do this themselves. This is fair enough of course, it only takes a little elbow grease and some cleaning products to get the surfaces sparkling again. However, as with the previous example, this won’t account for all the built-up grime that can get into the nooks and crannies.

Take your fan for instance. If you have a fan operated electric oven, then it’s just as easy for dirt and grease to penetrate this area. Over time, this can cause unpleasant smells and may begin to impact performance too. Therefore, every time you wipe down the surfaces of your oven, you could be forgetting about this equally important area.

However, it would be unwise to attempt to get into any such mechanical areas within your oven without proper training or a full understanding of what you’re doing. This can potentially cause more problems than you solve, particularly if you damage thermostats or other heating elements that may be contained. So either make sure that you tread carefully or call in a professional oven valeting service provider.

When we carry out a full service on an oven, we really do mean a full service. This means that we don’t just mop up the mess on your surfaces and shelves, we will actually get into the hard to reach areas and clear out all of the mess. This is done just for the sake of a little extra work.

When dirt is allowed to build up within any kind of working mechanism, and particularly ovens, it can have a major knock-on effect in performance.  When it comes to your cooker at home, this may mean that as well as producing more smoke than it did in the past, you may also find that it takes longer to heat up too. This is usually as a result of grease penetrating the working components and slowing them down.

This loss of efficiency can be costly and could even result in a full break down of your oven if it isn’t treated. Therefore, having your oven professionally cleaned every now and then can help to cut down your energy costs and make sure that you don’t experience a loss of functionality at any point. After all, you don’t want to keep having to adjust your timings when preparing food or wafting away the smoke as you do so.
