1st Commercial Cleaning and its sister company, OvenKing, have been providing quality cleaning services to Dorset, Hampshire and the surrounding areas for over 7 years. As such, over the years we’ve had some pretty well-known clients.

You might be thinking that we only deal with kitchens, and whereas we certainly do get our fair share of them, we also provide many other services, such as window and carpet cleaning, trauma and crime scene cleaning and end of tenancy cleans. As we are based in Bournemouth, we’ve helped out some well-known local names that you might be familiar with.

We pride ourselves on our work for educational facilities. Bournemouth University, University of Southampton and the Arts University Bournemouth have all trusted us to provide cleaning services for them. We often work for schools (including Mountbatten and St Peter’s) and all our technicians have DBS checks.

“I was off on leave on Monday and Tuesday but am back in today.  I have been over and seen the ovens and am very impressed with the cleanliness, thank you very much. “

At The King Group we are always delighted when a customer calls in, wanting to re-book after a job well done.  You might know Aruba down by Bournemouth pier? Or Westbeach on the prom? We are proud to clean for them annually – providing a full deep clean complete with extractor ducting cleans. We’ve had some lovely reviews and really enjoy our yearly trips.

“Thank you to you and the team for all your hard work, especially at Aruba – it is much appreciated” – 2016

“Thank you to you and your team for all their hard work… All work completed to a high standard, thank you so much.” – 2017

Some of our most rewarding jobs have been for the BCP (Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole council). We take on large scale commercial jobs, like cleaning police stations, all the way through to smaller domestic ones (like housing clearing).

Another of the well-known clients that we have worked for is Dorset Fire and Rescue, who we have worked with for 4 years. We have been tasked with cleaning all the ovens inside all the stations throughout Dorset. Did you know that most home fires start in the kitchen? A study in 2018 found that cooking appliances were responsible for 1 in 5 home fires last year. Over time, food and grease sticks to the inside of the oven, which becomes a potential fire hazard. As such, Dorset Fire and Rescue know the importance of a clean oven, and had us in for 4 years to make sure all their cookers were in tip top condition.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thanks you and your engineers for the excellent start to this contract and I look forward to another issue free year.”

Other well-known clients include TIGI Fridays,  Burger King and local favourite, Koh Thai. No oven is too big and no kitchen is too dirty for us to tackle!

Other clients include community centres, churches and shops- if you need a clean, we are there for you!

“Many thanks for the kitchen & ducting clean. Your 2 colleagues did a great job and I have never seen it so clean & sparkling. A great job, thanks. I will pass your details on to the other Methodist Churches in the Bournemouth area which may bring in some more work for you.”

But here at The King Group we don’t just clean- we also train. We’ve trained officers from the Royal Navy and the Army, who are in search of a new career, in the technique of oven cleaning. We are delighted that our training clients have gone on to great successes – check out their testimonials here.

In this difficult time, we’ve noticed many people are considering self-employment after being made redundant thanks to the pandemic. Have you ever considered starting your own oven cleaning business? Check out training information here.
