What can you potentially earn from an oven cleaning business?
Oven Cleaning is a way to earn as much as you want without limits or have as much flexibility as you need. The only barrier is the effort and time you put into developing your business.
The average earning for each oven is approximately £70 (depending on how much you charge per oven), the average cost ‘including marketing cost, gas, diesel, products, blades, tools, towels, marketing, software, and accountants fees and running cost is £4 per oven, that’s an average profit of approximately £66, minus wages and taxes.
Multiply that by 3 jobs a day and you have a profit of £198. This doesn’t include hobs, extractors, splashbacks, microwaves, and BBQs, which clients will want to be cleaned at the same time without any extra costs to you.
“Within your first year you should be aiming to earn between £24 and £36k, the second year £48k+ with £70k achievable with just one van”

These are based on minimum prices and should only be used as guidelines. Research other companies in your area.
You don’t want to undercut other companies to gain business, but you do want to keep things competitive. Go too high and you price yourself out of the market, go too low and you undercut your potential income.
A good way to maximise your time and earning potential is to have a minimum booking charge. Be clear and upfront with the client and ensure to have this written and visible to customers in your terms and conditions.
If you calculate you need a minimum of £30 to cover your expenses and make some profit on each job, then advertise your services with a minimum booking fee of £30 for all services.
