Why You Need to Clean Your Commercial Ice Machine
Regular cleanings promote sanitary and hygienic conditions by getting rid of mold, bacteria, and viruses. They also remove lime and scale build up that cause parts to fail and reduce the life of the machine. Ice Machines that are not properly cleaned and maintained void the manufacturer’s warranty. Remember, regularly cleaning your commercial ice machine is crucial to ensure the health and safety of your customers, as well as the longevity of the machine.
When Should I Clean My Commercial Ice Machine?
Most manufacturers recommend that Ice Machines be cleaned at least once, annually. During this time, professionals can perform full service on the machine, including a deep clean and any necessary repairs or replacements.
For hospitality and healthcare industries, Ice machine cleaning and sanitizing should happen quarterly. This process should be performed by a trained professional and can ensure that it is done thoroughly to maintain compliance.
