What is the price of Oven Cleaning?

Is your oven in need of some TLC? Read our handy guide to find out how much a professional oven cleaner will charge for their services.

Reasons to have your oven professionally cleaned

When we use our ovens, the combination of food particles and high temperatures means they soon become dirty. Not only are filthy ovens unsightly, but they can pose health and safety risks too. While you might be tempted to reach for some cleaning products to remedy the problem, it can be very difficult to remove stubborn stains with elbow grease alone. That’s why it’s a good idea to call in a professional oven cleaning team instead. 

Oven cleaners work on commercial and residential ovens, including standard ovens, range ovens, ceramic hobs and more. The process begins by removing any trays or racks from inside the oven, which will be soaked in a tub containing a cleaning solution. Your contractor will then manually scrub and remove dirt from within the oven itself, and give any external surfaces a clean. Once everything has been cleaned, your oven will be put back together so that it’s ready to use. 

As well as removing any potential fire hazards, a clean oven will enhance the taste of your food, and be more energy-efficient. Clean ovens are also more pleasant to use and will make your kitchen look cleaner too. 

How much does Oven cleaning cost? 

The cost of oven cleaning ranges between £25 and £50 per hour depending on the level of cleaning required and the type of oven you have. The job may be priced hourly or as a fixed fee. 

Oven cleaning can involve the cleaning of splashbacks, hobs, extractors as well as the inside of the oven itself.  The more aspects you wish to include, the longer it will take to clean.

What changes the price of Oven Cleaning? 

The cost of oven cleaning varies depending on several factors, including: 

  • Oven type

  • Oven size

  • Level of clean required

  • Time

  • Location

Oven type

Just like what we cook in our ovens varies, so too does the type of oven you may own. For example, it could be a standard oven you have in your kitchen at home, or a large scale range used within a commercial setting. 

Conventional ovens cost between £50 and £100 to clean, depending on how much work is involved. Master ranges that can be found in commercial kitchens such as restaurants and hotels, cost anywhere between £135 and £200 to clean.

Many oven cleaners will also throw in fridge cleaning or washing machine cleaning as part of a package deal. So, you may wish to enquire if your contractor offers this, as it could work out cheaper overall. 

It’s also possible to find oven cleaners who provide BBQ cleaning services too. This service ranges between £58 and £98 on average, depending on the size of your BBQ.

Oven size

As well as the oven type, every oven varies in size. Typically, ovens found within residential homes tend to be on the smaller size. But if you have a larger kitchen, your oven may also be bigger. Your contractor will quote you based on the area size they need to clean. 

Level of cleaning required

Depending on how you use your oven, it could be mildly dirty or be completely embedded in dirt and grease. If the condition of your oven is particularly bad, it will be more expensive to have cleaned. Professional oven cleaners are extremely pedantic with detail, so they will want to make sure your oven is left sparkling clean. The time it takes for them to get there will depend on what they are starting with. 

Time

Oven cleaners may bill according to hours, or factor in how long they think it will take and give a fixed fee quote. However, it goes without saying that the longer they need to spend in your home or business, the more they will charge you. Most oven cleans take between 1-3 hours to complete.

Location

Location is always going to affect the cost of any service you wish to hire, due to the difference in operational and living costs. 

Typically, the cheapest place to find oven cleaning is the North East, costing £67 on average. The most expensive area in the UK is London, averaging at £85 per oven. Overall, the average price for oven cleaning in the UK is £75.
