I have been in my new house for a while now and I am finally getting into a routine with the housework. When I lived in the City I was particularly bad at being organised and could often be found cleaning at an ungodly hour or being lazy, hiring in help. I have used Hassle to clean for me in the past but I received a lovely email from Fantastic Services asking if I fancied trying their oven cleaning service. Now the oven is one thing I have always refused to clean myself in this house. It is a large range style oven that I bought off the previous home owner and I am not entirely convinced it was that clean when I moved in. Considering I eat out a lot I rarely use it but it was starting to look a mess. Fantastic Services contacted me just at the right time!
I am actually really embarrassed to share these pictures with you but my friend had made pie the night before my oven was cleaned hence the pastry crumbs everywhere. It was a real test, a test for someone who knew what they were doing.
The booking process was really easy. I called them up and they asked me some simple questions about the type of oven I had and how heavily soiled (ahem) it was. I asked for a visit the following Tuesday which they couldn’t complete but they were able to offer me an appointment earlier and arranged to visit that Sunday. I was shocked to hear they offer weekend appointments but they are really convenient especially if you work regular hours.
On the day of my appointment I received a call from the contact centre asking if it would be okay for my cleaner to arrive half an hour early, many would have just turned up hoping for the best and I was delighted I would have the rest of my afternoon to myself and my, hopefully then, clean oven.
I’m embarrassed to say my cleaner was at my house for 3 hours working on my oven but just look at it, super shiny inside and out! He was perfectly polite, very quiet and got on with the job in hand with no fuss. All the rubbish that had been scraped from my oven was in a bin bag ready to be binned for good.
I have never felt so inspired to create new recipes and bake. I had put off using my oven so much without realising it, now I can get on with it and I have vowed never to let it get in that state again. Fantastic Services don’t just offer oven cleaning, there are a whole host of services you can request from end of tenancy cleans to regular domestic cleaning. Why don’t you put your feet up and let someone else run around the house for a change.
