If you happen to select the wrong company to clean your oven –

Review the Companies Online Reputation
Search on Google and Facebook for the company and check to see if they have any customer reviews. This is a great way to ascertain if the oven cleaning company is reputable and trustworthy.

Furthermore, you can give them a call to gauge their level of customer service. Are they friendly and willing to give free expert advice? If so, it’s likely that they will provide a professional service.
Check Their Credentials
Does the company or individual have extensive training and several years or experience cleaning ovens? This should again be evident from checking their website or Facebook profile. If not, just ask them… Although keep this in mind, experience and qualifications doesn’t always translate to great service.
