    Seriously I've never tried running an oven cleaning service but still must be an ok job money wise if you have been at 9 years ?

    Not only that you could still work in bad weather unlike window cleaning surely? :rolleyes:

    I could say the same thing as like any job you can get fedup with the repetition after a while.
    Put it this way I quite like the idea of being able to work inside most of the time say cleaning ovens than working 20 ft up a ladder clearing gutters out etc as can be dangerous work and bloody hard graft.

    I have thought about adding oven valeting for yonks now but would not know where to start.

    Any chance you could point me in the right direction on what's the best methods & chems you use. I also understand you may not want to share publically on here so could private message me if you like.:thumbsup:

    Smurf - most ovens aren't at eye level, They are down just off the floor. So count me out as I can't get down there.

    I would imagine that the only time you get called is when the oven is so filthy that its probably best to send it to the tip

    Very True... I could probably bend down on to me knees but struggle to get back up again. :D

    Most jobs are down on knee jobs that's another reason I hate it now my knees are terrible 5 to 9 hours a day doing ovens gets to you but an ideal add on which is what I'm hoping to do put ovens on back burner say 4 a month.

    Will pm you smurf but no real secret to be honest
