The topic of the self-cleaning oven feature is of debate to many as to whether it really works. We will be discussing the pros and cons of the self-cleaning oven feature and how to properly use it if you decide that it is worth it, especially if you cook or bake often at home. One of the highest recommendations is that you are present in your home when using the self-cleaning oven feature because the fumes from the build-up can sometimes produce flames and someone needs to be readily available at home in the event that is does start a fire, or fumes that need plenty of ventilation so be sure to leave some windows open for aeration. Also, it is recommended that you allow at least 3-6 hours for the full cycle to complete, so definitely don’t try this right before a major holiday, such as Thanksgiving. One of the cons of the self-cleaning oven option, other than the chance of a fire starting, is the possibility of the oven blowing out a fuse and requiring expensive maintenance and equipment repairs. We here, at Clean Conscience recommend that instead of taking a chance of starting a fire, or inhaling funky fumes is that you rely on professional cleaning technicians to get the job done for you. If you or someone you know is in need of a good oven cleaning, give Clean Conscience a call today, we would be happy to help you!
