Cleaning AGA enamel lids

By Graham Rogers | Uncategorized

The other day I was out training new franchisee Brian Smith and we cleaned this very old and dirty Standard AGA cooker (Standard as an old AGA with enamel lid tops before they bought out the Deluxe AGA in the late fifties with chrome top lids) and standard double oven in the same kitchen of a fabulous thatched cottage. The AGA took a while as the grease was engrained on and the top of the enamel lids was particulary bad. In all, as I was showing Brian the cleaning process, it took a long time than I would have taken myself. As Brian cleaned the double oven on his own I carried on with the detail of  the AGA. So we started at 0930 and finished at 1530. A long day. The AGA looked great at the end though. Unusually the underside of the lids were both self cleaning – well rusty self cleaning coated that couldn't be cleaned. Really I haven't cleaned one of these standard AGAs for a while and I really enjoyed myself. I not sure if Brian did though! We cleaned the Falcon double oven range cooker the next day. All good practise though.

Falcon Range Master clean

By Graham Rogers | Uncategorized

Last.week I was training Brian Smith and here are photos of a Falcon Range cooker we cleaned. This Falcon range had the same layout as a Rangemaster 110 but it has a better quality build. We dipped all the self cleaning panels and they came up looking 100%, we polished up the brass and the end result was a gleaming range cooker. The customer was delighted.

AGA Cleaning Chippenham

By Graham Rogers | Uncategorized

I am out training Brian Smith this week. He is the new franchisee for the Chippenham area and will be covering the towns of Chippenham, Malmesbury, Trowbridge, Devizes and surrounding towns and villages which includes the place where we used to live, Calne.

This week we have cleaned one old AGA which was a standard AGA cooker with enamel lids. It was a bit for struggle as it was very dirty. Tomorrow we are cleaning another AGA which I hope will be a more modern AGA with the chrome lids.  We will find out tomorrow.

Here is a video of Brian.

Oven Gleamers Franchise Update

By Graham Rogers | Uncategorized

We have had a busy last few weeks and we sold three franchise areas in three days to bring  the total number of OvenGleamers franchisees we now have to 5. We carried out the first week of training for these new franchisees last week and this week I am training one of them in the practical side of cleaning.

We have sold the following areas: 

1. Tamworth, Sutton Coldfield, Litchfield area.

2. Altrincham, Wilmslow, Cheadle area.

3. Chippenham, Devizes, Malmsbury area.

4. Fleet, Farnham, Farnborough area.

5. Berkshire area of Bracknell, Wokingham, Sandhurst, Crowthorne.

Unfortunately a couple of weeks ago one of our OvenGleam employees left so we are now back to four employees – so he was with us for about three months (we have learnt that some people leave after a few months whilst others stay forever:-)). The advantage of this is that I now have a van back which means that I am now able to train the new franchisees without using their own vans. Before we were fitting out the vans ready for the second week of training so we could use it for the practical week. Now as I have my van back we don't have to wait for the vehicle to be ready. The disadvantage is that I'm going to have a very busy, but enjoyable, December out cleaning ovens.

Currently I have four new oven cleaning dip tanks in production and have all three vans booked in for their fitting. We have sign written one of them and managed to film all the franchisees ready for Youtube and their own websites.

I am going to be training the other two new franchsees in the next two weeks and by the end all vans will have been fitted out to my specification.

We are now carrying out our business launches in exactly the same venues that Oven Clean (@ovenclean) use for their launches. So that is high profile stores such as John Lewis and Sainsburys with lots of footfall to give you the maximum benefit.

With Christmas approaching we are currently looking at splitting these launches to carry out two one before Christmas and one in January which we'd expect to be quite quiet. Therefore you are going to benefit from two launches instead of one.

We feel that we are running out of time now and feel that we can really only fit one more franchisee training course in, as we need to concentrate on running our own business for December. We have pencilled the last training course in for the first two weeks of November and we feel that we are going to have at least one new franchisee on that course. If we get any more interest we can accommodate at the most three people on the course and get them trained up to take advantage of the uplift in work we normally get in December. 

So if you are interested in starting an oven cleaning business with us you may want to think about going for it now. Give us a ring on 01275 370571. If you speak to my wife Catherine she will happily send you details of the area we have mapped out for your area, along with other details to help you make a decision.
