Solihull OvenClean was established over 14 years ago. We have many years experience in cleaning ovens throughout Solihull and Birmingham.

We have full public liability insurance with specialist insurance to cover the individual appliances also. This gives you full peace of mind that your property and appliance are in safe hands.

We accept all forms of payment including cash, cheque, BACS and card. We can take payment via a card terminal after the job is finished or over the phone.

The oven is checked initially for general condition and anything of note will be communicated to the customer before the clean commences. Once the initial checks are complete all parts of the oven will be removed safely and placed in a biodegradable solution within the specliast van-mounted dip tanks. Whilst the parts of the oven are soaking the shell of the oven is scraped then thoroughly cleaned using eco-friendly, non-solvent cleaning chemicals. Once the shell and parts have been thoroughly cleaned the oven is put back together and polished for a showroom sparkle. Where possible doors are removed to clean in between the glass where grease and dust often builds up.

We use a range of professional bio-degradeable, eco friendly, non-solvent cleaning chemicals that are suitable for those with allergies and children.

Smoking is usually a sign of a build up of carbon in the oven/grill. Most of the time a professional clean of the oven in the hardest to reach places will help to reduce or eliminate the causes of the smoke.

The time of cleaning depends on the build up of carbon deposits on the cooker but typically it ranges from an hour and a half for a single oven anywhere up to 4 or 5 hours for the largest types of cookers.

Prices include all parts of the oven inside and out including the racks. The prices also include the dismantling of the oven doors where this is possible. The only thing not included are grill pans which are extra.

Yes it’s safe to use your oven straight away after a professional clean is carried out. There will be a faint “just cleaned” smell when it’s first pre-heated but this will soon pass.
