An oven cleaning business has low startup costs, meaning you can get the business up and running without breaking the bank. We explain how to set up your venture for success.
An oven cleaning business specialises in professional cleaning of ovens, BBQs and other cooking appliances. Most of the time, oven cleaners will travel to clients' homes to clean their oven, although they can clean commercial kitchens as well.
Follow these steps to successfully launch your oven cleaning business:
To start an oven cleaning business, you'll need to have:
You don't need any formal qualifications to set up this type of business, but there are many courses available online to help you learn new skills. Having a nationally recognised qualification will help you stand out from the competition and will show customers you are operating a professional business.
Some key equipment you will need include:
You'll also want to purchase some computer equipment and software to keep the back end of the business running smoothly. This may include:
An accountant can help you choose the best business structure for your oven cleaning business (our guide has some great tips too). The main business structures are Sole Trader, Partnership and Company, and each one has its pros and cons depending on your personal circumstances.
Once you have chosen your oven cleaning business structure, you will need to get an Australian Business Number (ABN). When you have decided on a business name, it needs to be registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), unless you're operating it under your legal name. Once registered under the Corporations Act 2001, there's typically no need to register in individual State or Territory jurisdictions.
If your oven cleaning business operates as a Sole Trader, you can use your personal tax file number (TFN). However, Partnerships and registered Companies must apply for a dedicated tax number. Contact the Australian Tax Office for more information on taxes.
Before you launch your oven cleaning business, you may need to get your legal documents in order. You can find legal templates as well as a host of legal support services online. Some of the leading online legal companies include Sprintlaw, Lawpath and LegalVision.
Legal documents you might need for an oven cleaning company include:
For an oven cleaning business, types of lawyers you might need include:

Word-of-mouth and personal recommendations are both fantastic ways to build up your customer base. You can also reach out to local real estate agents to see if they need an oven cleaner for end-of-lease or pre-sale cleaning.
Another effective yet hassle-free way of getting new customers is to use online job marketplaces. They provide a low-cost way to connect skilled professions with locals looking for tradespeople. Some of the leading platforms on the market include hipages, Airtasker and Oneflare. All of these online platforms work in a similar way; locals can post jobs that they need doing in the marketplace, and individuals or companies with the right skills can provide a quote to do the job. This is a great way to build up your local client base as an oven cleaning company.
It's also a good idea to invest in your digital presence. You can build a website or a social media page outlining your services and pricing, and invest in advertising on social media and Google.
Oven cleaning businesses generally charge between $30 and $150. As prices do vary quite a bit, expect higher fees for large ranges and oven tops.
Here are the factors that dictate how much you will charge customers for your oven cleaning services:
How long does it take to clean an oven?
Oven cleaning can take just one or two hours. Exactly how long it takes you will depend on the quality of your equipment, when the oven was last cleaned and your level of experience.
Do I need insurance when starting an oven cleaning business?
You'll certainly want to look into Public Liability Insurance to cover any accidents or damage that may occur while you work at a customer's property. If you take on employees, consider workers compensation insurance to cover them.
You may also want to consider business vehicle insurance, income protection insurance and business interruption insurance. Read more in our guide to business insurance.
Do I need uniforms for my oven cleaning business?
Uniforms are a great way to make your oven cleaning business seem more professional. It's not mandatory, but it will help with the branding of your business. Uniforms are also a fantastic way to promote your business, especially if you wear them before and after work.Back to top
