Why Its Important to Clean Your Oven Regularly!
Sometimes we can get so caught up in life that we don't have time to clean the house thoroughly and regularly. Specifically, most of the time, the oven lets it build up till you see burnt things in the oven or it starts to smell. I'm here to tell you not to wait till that happens because of these reasons:
Effects on food and flavor
The continuous burning of food leftovers in the dirty oven can develop carbon-based fumes. The food can absorb the smelly fumes and, in turn, affect the smell and flavor of your food in a negative way. Also, not cleaning your oven regularly can affect your oven's efficiency, affecting the food's quality. In turn, your food will not cook properly, and eating that can lead to various health issues.
A dirty oven will release harmful smoke.
Any food leftover or grease inside your oven will burn whenever you switch it on. A dirty oven produces smoke inside your oven because the oven burns residual pieces of food and grease, which is terrible for you. The smoke contains harmful gases like Sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide. A dirty oven can be detrimental to your health and the environment because soiled ovens emit carbon and methane, contributing to climate change. To maintain your house's air quality, make sure your oven is clean.
A dirty oven can attract pests. Spills and dirt can attract pests such as rodents and cockroaches. If you keep it dirty, it can lead you to more severe problems.
The risk of fire is one of the most major consequences of keeping your oven dirty. More than $1 billion in direct property damage per year have been caused by preventable kitchen fires. More often, those fires are caused by cleanliness and neglect of the oven in your house.
