Oven cleaning for landlords

Discerning landlords throughout Australia use the Ovenu service on a regular basis. This ensures that all the cooking appliances and accessories are in pristine condition for the in-coming tenant.

All of our franchise owners throughout Australia work with hundreds of private Landlords and Letting Agents so we know what’s expected of us and we’ll try to make certain we deliver on those expectations every time we’re called. Whether it’s work that needs doing at short notice, collecting and delivering keys or even weekend work, we’ll do our best to help.

As the rental sector becomes the only option for many in the coming months, it is natural for a landlord to want to present his or her property in outstanding condition throughout to attract a quality tenant and a good monthly rental.

Having a sparkling clean range, immaculate oven and gleaming hob before the tenancy begins will also entitle the discerning landlord to request that the items be restored to their shiny best at the end of the tenancy agreement. It’s only fair for a landlord to have a tenant re-invest in the highest quality Ovenu service as he/she did initially.

Ovenu – Oven Cleaning for Tenants

With many more rental properties coming onto the market, tenants have more to choose from. Although location, location and location are still very high on the list of requirements, the overall condition of property is rising rapidly up the list of requirements. What could possibly be worse than spending all day moving boxes into a ‘new’ property, deciding to cook at the end of a long, hard day to find that the smoke alarm triggers when the oven is turned on?

It may be better to inspect the oven whilst looking over the rental property before signing the agreement and if all is not well, suggest to the landlord that the Ovenu oven detailing service would be a good call to make before you actually moving in.

Frequently Asked Questions

How clean should an oven be at the end of tenancy?

At the end of your tenancy, the level of cleanliness required for an oven often depends on the terms specified in the lease agreement and the expectations of the landlord or property manager. However, a general guideline for the cleanliness of an oven at the end of a tenancy is that it should be thoroughly cleaned to a standard that is comparable to its condition at the beginning of the lease. It is always a safer option to get your oven professionaly cleaned by Ovenu to avoid any possible cleaning charges being made against you from your landlord.

How often should I consider having the ovens in my rental properties professionally cleaned?

The frequency of professional oven cleaning depends on the usage and condition of the ovens. As a general guideline, scheduling a professional cleaning annually or between tenancies is advisable. This helps in maintaining a clean and sanitary cooking environment for tenants and contributes to the overall upkeep of the property.

Should I include oven cleaning requirements in the lease agreement?

Including specific oven cleaning requirements in the lease agreement is recommended. Clearly outlining expectations for the condition of the oven upon move-out helps prevent misunderstandings and ensures that tenants are aware of their responsibilities. It sets a standard for cleanliness and can be a proactive measure to maintain the property's value. If it is professionally cleaned before move in you can expect it to be professionally cleaned on vacate.

What if a tenant fails to clean the oven adequately before moving out?

If a tenant fails to clean the oven adequately, you may deduct the cost of professional cleaning from the security deposit, provided that such deductions are stipulated in the lease agreement. It's important to communicate these expectations clearly in the lease and to conduct a thorough vacate inspection to assess the overall condition of the property, including the oven.

Are there any specific considerations for oven cleaning during a turnover between tenants?

During turnovers between tenants, it's advisable to schedule professional oven cleaning services to ensure a fresh start for new occupants. This not only maintains a high standard of hygiene but also contributes to the property's overall appeal. Coordinating these services with other turnover tasks helps streamline the transition and ensures a clean and inviting kitchen space for incoming tenants.

Am I responsible for cleaning the oven before moving out of my rental property?

Yes, as a tenant, it is generally your responsibility to leave the oven in a clean and sanitary condition upon moving out. This is often outlined in the lease agreement, and failure to do so may result in deductions from your security deposit for professional cleaning services. Get in touch with us to ensure you leave the Oven in the same state it was in when you moved in.

Can I hire a professional oven cleaning service, and will the cost be covered by my landlord?

Yes, you can hire a professional oven cleaning service. However, it's essential to check your lease agreement to see if the cost is covered by the landlord. In some cases, landlords may cover the cost as part of routine maintenance, while in others, tenants are responsible for the expense.

Is there a recommended time to schedule oven cleaning during my tenancy?

While there's no strict schedule for oven cleaning during your tenancy, it's a good practice to maintain cleanliness regularly. Consider cleaning the oven when spills or residues occur, and aim for a thorough cleaning before moving out to ensure compliance with lease agreements and leave a positive impression for the next tenant.

What should I do if the oven is already in poor condition when I move in?

If the oven is in poor condition upon moving in, document its state and inform your landlord or property manager promptly. This documentation can be crucial for avoiding disputes at the end of your tenancy. Clear communication ensures that you are not held responsible for pre-existing issues with the oven.

Are there any specific cleaning products or methods recommended for maintaining the oven during my tenancy?

It's advisable to use mild, non-abrasive cleaning products suitable for ovens to avoid damage to surfaces. Regularly wipe down spills and splatters, and follow any care instructions provided by the manufacturer. If uncertain, seek approval from your landlord before using any cleaning products to ensure compliance with the terms of your lease agreement.
