Oven cleaning franchises (= parroty subject)

Recommended Posts

Re overheated teflon linings, or overheated spilt fat / oils.

 

I was listening to an interview with someone who has one of the oven cleaning franchises the other day. He said the first thing he does is empty the oven of shelves etc and then turn the oven on to full.

 

It occured to me that he should always ask whether there are any birds in the house before doing this!

The house owner may not be aware of the danger, but the cleaner really should.

 

I have decided to contact all the franchise companies I can, to make sure they are well aware of the danger of toxic fumes from a very hot oven, and pass this on to everyone buying a franchise.

 

I have no idea how many companies there are. If you know of one, or where they are listed please could you let me know!!!!

I've seen a couple in the yellow pages, but I assume there may be others in different areas of the country.

 

Many thanks :D

Great idea cgm!

 

There are magazines about called "Cleaning and Hygiene today", and "Cleaning Maintenance". There is also an Ezine called Cleanzine. Perhaps they would be able to offer a list?

 

I'm not really sad, with a penchant for reading about the latest toilet cleaner!, I work in a company that sells industrial cleaning equipment so I have seen them round the office! If I can find any contact details tomorrow I will pass them on to you.

Well I am trawling through Cleaning and Hygiene today ! and I have found

 

http://www.teepol.co.uk

http://www.vikan.co.uk

Both listed under kitchen cleaning products

 

and

http://www.matrixcleaningsystems.co.uk

under Kitchen deep cleaning.

 

They may not do domestic, but I bet they can point you in the right direction!

 

Also, Claire Ullyart is advertising manager of Cleaning and Maintenance magazine, she might be able to forward on some more contacts? She is at claireullyart@quartzltd.com

 

Good luck!

Rachel

:( Teepol may be a waste of time contacting :( unless they`ve improved ---- they`re very good at selling their products but have a habit of not mentioning the draw backs e.g Teepol leaves a residue on surfaces which in time builds up and has to be CLEANED off periodically unlike normal detergent which is wash on wash off :o

I wasn't looking for info on ovens/teflon etc, but I stumbled on this piece, written about a self-cleaning cleaning oven killing parrots, even though it wasn't used.

 

I can't understand it - do they mean it was never turned on, or never self-cleaned???

 

The link is huge - here goes......

Thanks mmm :D It is the correct page - scroll down to just below the baby birds 2008 calendar.

 

It says...They had no idea that the self cleaning oven they have, and NEVER used was a danger to anyone.

 

I'm puzzled.

with some of the self cleaning ovens it used to be reccomended that you turned the oven on full power and left it on for several hours to bake off the muck ------------ I suspect it was that which they were confusing with normal use !

Thanks.

It certainly reinforces my concern about professional oven cleaners. They may be the first person to do that to a clients oven.
