A day in the life of a successful oven cleaner

Your oven cleaning day starts the night before…

…checking the first appointment diary and checking where your first job is so that you can set your alarm accordingly!

Being your own boss and having flexibility comes with its own stresses at time, you need to ensure that you have all your tools and equipment and they are in working order, checking that you have uniform, microfibre clothes enough product for the day ahead. If you are not organised, you are the only one to blame, so being prepared is the key here!


  • 7.00am – In the morning, after getting ready for the day ahead, we would check the diary, messages and emails to check that no cancelation for the day’s appointments came in over-night. Out to the van, and get it ready for the day, making sure your have lunch for the day, and enough of it, as you move from job to job, you won’t really have time to stop off to get any food.
  • 8.30am – Drive to first location, sign client in as arrived and introduce self and see the oven. Check the ovenjob before starting to make sure there are no areas of damage or issues that you will not be able to deal with, explain what you will do and ensure that you have understood and met the customers’ expectations,  and then get going. You can be spoilt when on a job, so expect lots of tea and coffee and Customer offers to make tea and sometimes even the offer of some biscuits or cakes!  It’s a great feeling getting back in touch with people in and around the local communities.
  • 10.00am – off to the next job, the usual 30-minute buffer is enough time, but with the next job at 10.30am off we go.
  • 10.30am – arrive at next job, eand again, introduce yourself and check out the oven, range this time, 2 hours and 30 minutes for this job, repeat as before, giving excellent customer at all time, more tea!
  • 1pm – Drive to next location or park up in a beauty spot to have lunch 30 minute break before the last job of the day, every lunch day is different, this also provides time to call back customers, complete some accounts and check the email. The van’s are equipped to be completely mobile so with full access to the internet it mean you don’t have to bring the paperwork home at the end of the day!
  • 2pm – Last job of the day a double oven, on arrival, make friends with the over friendly dog before doing anything, after introducing, checking and setting up we crack on with the final job, completed by 4pm, this day is done.

Arrive home around 4.30pm to spend time the your family and friends, but not before you complete those final accounts, checked the messages and phone calls and checked the location of your first job in the morning, oh, and ensured that the van is fully stocked for the next busy day.

So that’s it, 3 jobs for the day, bringing home £200+ the freedom to be home and enjoying life, the way you want to. The automated systems has meant that we didn’t need to call anyone to confirm the booking, the request for reviews has gone out and customers are already telling others about the amazing experience they had with you.

If you bring home £200+ a day then on average in a 5-days week, you are bring home that £1000 per week we have been talking about.

Don’t get me wrong, some days there is more travelling, more jobs, a trip to get petrol, but all in all this is a true account of the day in the life of an oven cleaner.


Not a bad job really!
