Spring is in the air and so is dirt, bacteria, and debris.

Even if you have top-of-the-line equipment, small variables in cleanliness and temperature conditions make a big impact on performance.

Clean surfaces are essential, especially for an ice machine’s interior—when dust and debris accumulate around parts, machines are slower and produce less ice.

Prevent food waste with these three tips:

1) Make sure the inside of your refrigeration is cleaned. Clean the inside of the machine every night with warm soapy water to prevent bacteria and mold from getting in your food.

2) Get a proper cleaning company to clean the mechanical parts. Not only do you have to clean the inside of your refrigeration, but the mechanical parts need to be cleaned at least once a year. We work hard to ensure that our technicians are well trained across all commercial refrigeration brands and models.

3) Plan food purchasing accordingly. During the winter months when business is slower, purchase the right amount of food so there isn't much to throw away at the end of the night. Save money and time.

No one likes surprises when it comes to their commercial refrigeration equipment. Our Preventative Maintenance Program ensures your machines run at peak efficiency. If something unexpected occurs, you can depend on us to quickly resolve the problem with replacement parts. Call us today to get started

A clean ice machine is a more hygienic machine.

Weekly: wipe down and sanitize the ice bin exterior.
Monthly: empty, disinfect and sanitize the ice bin and underside of the machine with sustainable cleaners.

In addition to the health benefits, a properly cleaned machine can produce more ice while lowering water and electricity costs. So by keeping it clean, you’ll also be keeping it efficient.

Poorly filtered water contains salts and dissolved solids that create deposit build-up inside the ice machine, which can lead to white-looking or cloudy ice.

If not addressed, the shape of the ice, as well as its taste, can be impacted. Water quality varies all over the country, but any water chemistry challenge can be solved by having the right machine setup, properly fitted filtration, and regular cleaning and maintenance. Call us today!
