Why should I have my oven cleaned professionally?

Firstly shop-bought cleaners, even the biggest household brand names, often create unwanted fumes and contain harmful corrosive chemicals. When used incorrectly, these can damage metallic surfaces, leaving your chrome racking and enamel surfaces cracked, rusted and dull.

This can result in future expense for you, should you have to order replacements. Not to mention the frustration of a less than desirable finish when you have spent hours slaving away attempting to tackle the task yourself!

Not only do we take all of the hard work out of this hated household job, but our methods are proven to extend the life of your oven and improve the taste of your food.



Are your cleaning methods safe?

Absolutely! SurfaceMaster's range of oven cleaning products are perfectly safe, fume-free and ready to use when finished. Our products have been chosen specifically to work alongside our professional oven cleaning dip tank located in our vans. This is the best way to get your oven looking like new without having to purchase a brand new oven.



How long does an oven clean take?

Depending on the type, size and condition of the oven, as well as any additional services you may require such as hob or microwave cleaning, the process can take anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours. If you are in a time sensitive situation, and require a more accurate figure, our technicians will be able to let you know how long the job will likely take when they are onsite. We do not charge by the hour, and our technicians abide by strict quality of service standards. For this reason we are proud to offer our Satisfaction Guarantee



How soon after the clean can I use my oven?


Straight away! Our unique range of fume-free products means that there is no ‘cooling off’ period in which you have to wait to use your oven, unlike some oven cleaning services out there today. We will pack up, thank you for your business and then you are free to cook, bake and grill to your heart’s content.



How often should I get my oven cleaned?

Many people neglect their ovens, in fact 1 in 4 ovens in the UK are in less than satisfactory working order due to built-up grease, carbon deposits and grime. This means that your food cooks unevenly and your temperature gauges may be displaying improper readings resulting in under-cooked food and possible health risks. An oven should be thoroughly cleaned roughly every 6 months, with a bare minimum of once a year!

We welcome advanced bookings and can often recommend a time for us to re-visit your house to clean your oven again. We can even give you useful hints and tips of how to maintain your oven in between our visits, saving you money in the future.



What does ‘self-cleaning panels’ mean?

Self-cleaning ovens are a bit of a misconception as the panels are designed so that any fat and food residue is burnt off through regular use, leaving the panels cleaner than non self-cleaning oven panels. In theory they do work to some degree, however very few domestic ovens are capable of reaching a temperature high enough that allows this process to work completely. This means that the oven will need still cleaning, like any other, at some stage.

Our cleaning process is designed to work on all ovens and will completely remove any built-up deposits, leaving you with a truly clean oven that will serve its purpose for years to come.
