Whether you rent or are a home owner, regularly cleaning your oven is an absolute must. Many people put it off, however, as it’s not always the most fun bit of cleaning to do.
Unfortunately, it only becomes a more difficult job the longer you leave it. And the longer you leave it, the more likely your oven can actually become damaged by the build-up of grease and fat from the cooking process.
Signs that your oven needs a professional clean include:
- the build-up of grime in the window
- the production of smoke during use (which comes from the burning of fatty oil deposits)
- discoloration on the inside of the oven.
ABClean offer an excellent oven cleaning service which can extend the life of your oven and make it easier to maintain in the future. It is particularly useful if you have left it a long time since you last cleaned your oven. If you are moving out of rented accommodation it is very important that you make sure the oven is cleaned properly, and this often requires professional attention. If you leave it in a bad state then the landlord may have to take money out of your deposit in order to fix the problem, so it’s important that you don’t wait until the last possible moment to clean your oven – not least because it can take a lot longer than you might expect.
Ovens aren’t cheap, so if you own one it’s important that you protect your investment by making sure it’s well looked after. When they become really dirty, they obviously become a hygiene risk, too. There’s only so much that high temperatures can do when your oven is full of grease from months and months of cooking.
