Rugby Oven Cleaning Specialist Celebrates 2 Year Anniversary

Ovenu valeting specialist Dave Simmonds is celebrating two years of successful business providing his OVENU oven valeting service to homes across Rugby.

Dave, who swapped his job as an area supervisor to be his own boss back in 2010, has now delivered his environmentally-friendly cleaning service to hundreds of residential properties, including regular bookings from landlords, lettings agents and local schools.

To meet demand for the Ovenu service, Dave has recruited his wife Helen to arrange the administration of the business, which will enable him to spend more time at customers’ properties.


Dave, aged 50, said: “Bringing my wife on board last year has really brought everything together. Together we have increased our customer database dramatically and, in turn, our turnover of work to at least three cleans a day.”

“We operate the business on the ethos of never letting any clients down. We always aim to be at each appointment on time, and if things are running late, notice is given well in advance.”

“Starting up a new business in the current climate was never going to be easy, but with Ovenu’s simple and affordable business model and the support of my wife, it has proved to be a great success.”

Dave operates his business as part of our UK wide Ovenu franchise network. Supported by an establish brand and business model, Ovenu franchisees cover more than 100 locations as well as in Europe, America and Australia.

Managing Director of Ovenu, Rik Hellewell, said: “Dave has grown his business rapidly in the first two years and his continuing enthusiasm never fails to impress.”

“Together, Dave and Helen have created a network of loyal Ovenu customers, and are a true testament to the possibilities of business success when people work hard and have a stake in their business.”
