5 Warning Signs Your Oven Needs Cleaning

Without meaning to sound like a broken record, cleaning your oven is something that really should be done every 6-12 months.

A thorough professional clean will ensure your oven works efficiently, is hygienic and doesn’t;t emit any nasty odours into your home or onto your food.

But sometimes, from the outside, your oven may look reasonably clean. And so, assuming you don’t want to spend hours scrubbing away only to achieve an inferior result, how do you know when you should book a professional clean?

Here are 5 warning signs that your oven needs a thorough professional clean.

Lingering kitchen odours

Any sort of lingering smell that permeates your kitchen is a sign that your oven may need cleaning.

Sometimes these odours will be rather foul, and other times it might just be a feint smell that lingers in the air. Occasionally, you may even notice that certain dishes of food taste a little different to normal.

Any odour that emanates from your oven long after cooking is not a good sign.

You can’t see your food through the oven door

If your oven is truly clean you should be able to see your food cooking through the glass door.

To get your glass thoroughly clean, inside and out, requires removing the pane and using safe chemicals.

This is a job best left to insured professionals.

Your oven is smoking

If your oven emits smoke when you’re using it then don’t delay – book as professional clean as soon as possible!

A smoking oven is caused by a build up of food debris. It can be potentially dangerous and it will also ruin the taste of your food.

If you have an oven that ever releases any amount of smoke at all, it needs a full professional clean rather than an attempt at DIY cleaning.

Your oven is losing heat

If you’ve noticed that your oven is taking longer than usual to reach or maintain a temperature, it is likely losing its efficiency.

This can be caused by the build up of grease and carbon deposits affecting the internal components of your oven.

A deep professional clean is usually all that’s needed to get it back to speed.

You can’t remember the last time you had your oven cleaned

A wipe over with a a soapy cloth doesn’t qualify as an ‘oven clean.’

If you can’t remember when you last had your oven professionally cleaned, then it’s time to give us a call.

Once we’re finished, your oven will be fresh, hygienic and beautifully clean. And it’ll work as good as the day it was installed.
