ICE MACHINE CLEANING & MAINTENANCE


Ice is ready-to-eat, so treat it like food! Handle ice with a sanitary scoop or tongs, not bare hands. You might make your customers sick. Service the machine 2 to 4 times a year to prevent the buildup of “slime” (biofilm) and mold. Clean that machine at least every 6 months to prevent contaminated ice!


Dirty, contaminated ice is more common than you think. Harmful bacteria and viruses thrive, even on ice!


THE FACTS


Viruses and bacteria survive in ice cubes. Microbial growth can cause slime build up inside your ice machine. Customers get sick from nasty germs like Salmonella, Listeria, E. Coli, Shigella, and the Norwalk Virus. A dirty ice machine can contain more bacteria than a toilet. Cleaning the ice machine needs to be a priority for your peace of mind and for the health of your customers. The most aggressive growth of mold and slime is not in the bin where the ice is stored but in the areas, you don’t see: in the mechanism where the ice is made. This area has the three main building blocks for mold growth: Heat, moisture and darkness.


WHAT WE DO BEST

Our professional Refrigeration and HVAC Mechanics are highly trained for the task of sanitizing the machine and will also be able to spot mechanical problems before they become a breakdown. Chemicals used to sanitize ice machines are potentially hazardous when mixed, used, or stored improperly. Leave it to our expert specialists to handle it rather than your staff. Don’t expose your staff to the harmful bacteria that become airborne during cleaning. It can make them seriously ill.


WE ENSURE YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY

Our Ice Machine Cleaning Specialists use an 18-point checklist to carefully clean and sanitize, not only the bin where your ice is stored but t the parts you don't see where the ice is made in your ice machine. You can be confident that the health and safety of your staff and customers are ensured when you count on us to sanitize your ice-making system. We will also provide you with before and after pictures and a report.



The Process


OUR ANNUAL HVAC PLANNED MAINTENANCE PROGRAM WILL BENEFIT YOU.
