Why Having Your Oven Cleaned is Safer Than a Self-Cleaning Oven

A self-cleaning oven may seem like the best option with its ability to save you from undoubtedly the most hated household chore.

However, when you delve deeper into the features of a self-cleaning oven, you will actually find that there are a few safety hazards which you should be aware of. A self-cleaning oven can create health risks for you, your family, your pets, and potentially even cause serious damage to the internal components of your oven.

Carbon monoxide poisoning

A self-cleaning oven feature causes the inside of your oven to get extremely hot – up to around 500oc. When leftover food is spilt and then heated up at very high temperatures, this dramatically increases the danger of carbon monoxide being created, which is obviously very hazardous for you and your family.

No risk of breathing difficulties

If anyone in your home suffers from breathing difficulties such as asthma, then they will need to completely avoid the kitchen if you are using a self-cleaning oven function. The extremely high temperature of the feature will produce a lot of dangerous fumes which can be very dangerous.

Better animal safety for your pets

The fumes created during the oven’s self-cleaning cycle can be especially hazardous to the health of any pets you have in your home, so please make sure that all animals are placed outside.

No risk of damaging internal components

The exposure to extreme heat can cause sometimes damage your oven fuses and control panels, which are very costly and time-consuming to repair.
