Do I need to hire someone to clean my oven?

If you’ve ever attempted to DIY your oven cleaning, you’ll know it’s a messy job that can take hours. You’ll have to bend yourself into an awkward position, often use harsh chemicals, and put up with a strong smell. If you’ve been putting off cleaning your oven for too long, it might be worth getting a professional in to do a proper clean.  


A professional job will help to:

  • Help your oven function better

  • Prevent fires from built-up grease and food remnants 

  • Save energy by improving efficiency

  • Help your food taste better

  • Reduce oven fumes and smoking


You might also hire a professional oven cleaner as part of your end of lease clean to make sure you get your bond back.

What are the standard inclusions with oven cleaning?

When you book an oven cleaner, it may take between 1-2 hours (depending on the size and condition of your oven). Your oven cleaner will usually include the following services:


  • Set up protective sheeting to keep the surrounding area clean

  • Remove all trays and interior racks and clean them with appropriate products

  • Remove doors (if they can be removed) and clean inside and out

  • Clean the interior oven cavity

  • Replace all parts correctly

  • Clean up all surrounding areas and put any rubbish in the bin

  • Test the oven to make sure it’s working perfectly


Standard oven cleaning prices don’t usually include extras like cleaning your grill, stovetop, and rangehood, so if these need attention, you’ll need to request them specifically.  Your cleaner may also be able to help with fridge cleaningfloors mopping or whole house cleaning.

FAQs about oven cleaning prices

How much does it cost to get your oven cleaned?

A cleaning contractor’s hourly rate depends on a lot of factors, like location, skill, demand, and experience. A standard hourly rate for cleaners in Australia is anywhere from $20-$60/hour.

How long does it take to clean an oven?

Oven cleaning usually takes around 1-2 hours. The timeframe will depend on your oven’s condition, how long it’s been since it was last cleaned, your equipment, and your experience.

Can you clean an oven without chemicals?

If you’re sensitive to certain cleaning products, you can specify in your ad which products and ingredients you’d prefer. For example, one Airtasker recently asked for oven cleaning with only lemon juice, vinegar, bi-carb soda, and Coca-Cola. Or you might supply your own cleaning products that you know you won’t react to. If you want to avoid strong chemicals, you may need to allow more time for your oven cleaning professional to get the job done.

What’s a fair oven cleaning price?

You’ll need to pay your oven cleaner a fair price that compensates them for their time spent cleaning, travelling, and any supplies they brought with them. Remember that they’ll also need to pay tax, petrol, and other expenses with the amount they’re paid. When you hire through the Airtasker marketplace, your cleaner can set their own rate and only accept the jobs they want to do.
