Here is where the Stove Lady & Belgrove Appliance, Inc. stand out from the competition!! Many restoration companies do only in shop full restoration. That means you get your range to them and they do whatever it needs to fully restore it, regardless of price. We are flexible so we do whatever your range needs to meet your goals and our quality standards, price considered. Please note that quality and safety is always considered first at Belgrove Appliance, Inc.
Cleaning and partial restoration is the term we give to cleaning jobs in which we hand select parts to be restored. We can do this job in your home or in our shop. There are various levels of cleaning and partial restoration jobs so we cannot and will not quote a price on these jobs without first seeing the range in person. Photos will not be accepted to quote cleaning and partial restoration jobs.
To begin a cleaning and partial restoration job, we look at the range, take pictures, check the functional parts and gather your wish list. We discuss the various options available based on the condition of the stove and your goals. Not everyone has the same goals and we give individualized service. Some people want the range to have a basic thorough cleaning and others want it to look restored without the expense of a full restoration.
Usually the burners, drip pans and grates are restored at our outside vendor location. The shell of the range is cleaned in the client’s home. Two trips are made to complete in home jobs, one to remove the parts to be cleaned and restored and a second to clean the shell and re-assemble the range. Sometimes a third visit is made to furnish the client with loaner parts.
Once we review the range at the customer’s home or business. We return to the shop to create an individualized, written quote and provide the customer with the job details, and possibly our recommendation via email. Some times more than one quote is created to give the client options.
In-shop cleaning and partial restoration jobs are more extensive. The condition of the stove and the customer’s goals will determine whether we recommend Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tier 3.

Tier 1: The stove is dismantled similar to that of a full restoration and the stove top is re-chromed. Handles and knobs are polished or re-chromed and we fix any chips on the exterior of the stove, if requested or needed. Tier one jobs could also include a color change, but most times we recommend a full restoration if you are changing the color of your range. The goal of a tier one job is to have that fully restored look without the expense of a full restoration. There are interior items that are not done with a tier one cleaning and partial restoration job and the warranty is limited to items repaired or restored. A safety system is usually installed in a tier one job.
Tier 2: Under a tier two cleaning and partial restoration, the top of the stove is taken off and cleaned, the valves are rebuilt, the burners restored, the drip and grid the pans are re-enameled or re-chromed, but we don’t re-chrome the stove top or re-enamel the outer shell. The goal here is to have your range cleaned more thoroughly than in your home, but not as extensively as a tier one job. The mechanical overhaul is limited to the rebuilding of the valves and the possible installation of a safety system. Only mechanical issues are addressed.
Tier 3: The goal in a tier 3 cleaning and partial restoration is to clean the range thoroughly while only partially dismantling it, installing a safety system (if the customer wants one), rebuilding the valves, calibrating the oven temperature, and re-enamelling the burners, grates, and drip pans. Only items repaired are under warranty. Not every customer can have a tier 3 job done, but those who have carefully maintained their range can most definitely take advantage of this lower cost job. The goal with this job is to have everything function properly and be clean, but not look showroom ready.
