Oven Cleaning.

An idea for a small business/franchise.  Oven Cleaning.  I've just spent the morning cleaning my oven, a job I'm sure not every one enjoys.

In the UK there are loads of small businesses who will come and do the job for you - at a cost depending on size etc. The last time I paid £50.

I said to my OH - if I were younger and was living in France full time - certainly something I'd consider setting up.

However, they may be out there - if so, and if anyone knows of one in 36, please let me know.

I always buy self cleaning ovens and then on the shelves use oven pride, which works very well. Do you really think that people would pay to get this done? I cannot say that I would ever think of having it done by someone else.

I used the service between lets as I was so disgusted with the state the tenants had left the oven in and knowing that I would deduct it from their deposit there was little point me doing it myself.

It came to £35 including the hob and the young girl had to travel from Camberly to Gatwick and back to do the job plus she was working through an intermediary so probably got a lot less herself.

I guess the same service were it to exist in France would be a couple of hundred euros if they could be bothered to answer the phone to take a booking [:(]

I think there is a real need for specialist cleaning services to the rental sector, now we have AE (for the time being) I am surprised that many havn't appeared.

Not quite the same...... but I wonder if people would pay to have a sort of 'end of season' mega clean on their barbecue ?

I say this because I am coming to the end of this year's stay in France and this is a job I'm putting off.

A couple of years ago someone was posting on another forum about starting up such a business. In this area south Midi Pyrenees. She was getting some special equipment ? steam cleaning?

She did get some clients, but I don't think she ever quoted a price.

It could be a useful service for people who let out gites.

Went to the etcetera open day in Lessac (16) last month and there was a firm advertising this service there, so yes, it does exist. However I didn't take any details as at the moment I have no excuse not to do it myself!! Old age, infirmity, etc!!!!

I have first hand experience of this service. OH decided he would get someone in to clean our U.K. oven. Fantastic result, could never have acheived the same standard myself, only problem was the oven didn't work after the clean!![:(] So we had to go out to dinner that night[:)]
