 What To Remember When Moving Your Oven

Whether you are moving home or simply going through a renovation of your house, it may at some point be necessary to relocate your oven. The mechanics and the weight do not make this a particularly easy task for homeowners. There are several steps that need to be taken and many tips that need to be kept in mind. You may even require the services of a professional handyman. Here are some of the things worth keeping in mind:

1. How to unplug the oven from the circuit

Disconnection your appliance is something that is best left to a professional mover unless you really know what you are doing. This is because wires may be damaged if the oven has been well-used and could potentially be very dangerous to handle. Similarly, if you have a gas oven, you will need to detach it from the gas bottle before proceeding, which can be quite a complicated process.

2. Clean the oven before disassembling it

Before you even think about taking apart the oven to make it easy to move, you should give it a thorough and extensive oven clean. Some minor stains and marks will be simple for homeowners to complete by themselves with ordinary household products. However, some ovens may require the services of a professional oven cleaner, someone with top-of-the-range products, to get rid of deeply ingrained stains. Premier Ovenclean can provide these services to Ormskirk, Southport and many other areas.

3. Protect the oven whilst moving it

You don’t want to scratch, damage or dent the oven while you are moving the disassembled pieces from one place to the next. Make sure they are all adequately bubble wrapped and are transported not solely by you – the oven is heavy and could be dropped – but done with the assistance of moving rollers.
