    Why you need to use the right chemicals to clean your oven


    When you decide that it is time to clean your oven, there are various health and safety factors to consider.

    It is true that whenever we undertake jobs around the house, there is always a risk of accidents, such as slips, trips and falls; however, the chemical-related dangers when you clean your oven can be particularly severe.

    Using the right chemicals when you clean your oven

    It is extremely important to choose the right chemicals when you clean your oven.

    Whether you opt for specifically designed oven cleaning products, or create a home remedy from citrus or bicarb, you should never attempt to clean your oven with chemical products intended for other means, such as bleach, for example.

    Oven cleaners are especially designed to cut through grease and charred food. They are also formulated to pose minimal risk to users from inhalation during and following the clean.

    When you opt to use a non-specific cleaning product, you are at risk from heating and inhaling toxic chemicals. This can, in turn, cause severe symptoms from poisoning.

    How to clean your oven correctly

    Once you have made your natural formula, or have purchased an oven cleaning product, you should clean your oven with care and caution.

    Ensure the room is properly ventilated. Open your windows and allow air to circulate. Ensure that there are no children or pets in the room, who may suffer severely if they inhaled the cleaning products.

    Before you start the clean, ensure that the oven is turned off, and disconnected from any gas or electricity input. You should also wear protective clothing, such as rubber gloves, goggles, and a mask if cleaning products are likely to aggravate a respiratory condition.

    During the clean, make sure you never cover the heating area or the oven fan.

    Once you have finished cleaning, leave the oven door open for a little while to encourage ventilation. You will also need to leave the oven a few hours before cooking.

    Claiming compensation for accidents at home

    If you have suffered an accident at home through no fault of your own, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.

    Perhaps you fell due to unfinished stairs in your rented property, or you slipped due to a leaking boiler. Whatever your story, Accident Advice Helpline are here for you.
