Benefits of Ice Machine Cleaning

by Lauren Rodriguez on December 05, 2019

The #1 benefit of keeping your ice machine clean if safety. Your customers depend on you to keep a clean and safe environment as they ingest the ice, food, or drink that you provide them. Ice machine cleaning is a simple way to keep your customers happy and machines running long. 

The #2 (or 1.5) reason is your brand value. The cleanliness of your facility including ice machines is huge. Have you ever looked down into a cup of water or lemonade and noticed little black specks floating around? That right there is mold or mildew from the inside of the machine. Failure to clean your ice machine is failure to care for your customer.

A simple ice machine cleaning service should involve the following items:

  • Clean & sanitize water system
  • Clean air filters on air-cooled models
  • Check external filter systems and change cartridges as needed
  • Check inlet water valve screens
  • Conduct bearing and auger inspection on extruded ice makers
  • Conduct visual inspection of components, controls, and wiring for oil spots, loose wires, loose fasteners, corrosion, etc.
  • Clean the bin interior (including any lids or hard to reach areas removed) and exterior.

Here's a picture of what many ice machines look like from a recent job:

Do you want your customers ingesting this? Ice machines are a haven for mold, bacteria, slime, and even fecal matter from employees who don't wash their hands properly. Customers ingesting this are at risk of getting sick or even contracting E. Coli! 

For the sake of keeping this post short and simple, we haven't even covered the numerous benefits of how the ice machine cleaning benefits the longevity of your expensive machine.
