The Importance of Cleaning Your Ice Machine

Without debating the origins of life on earth, it’s a certainty that moisture, in the right circumstance, breeds organic growth.  Unfortunately, the right circumstance may very well be the inside the commercial ice machine in your restaurant.

While that growth is called by different names, none of them are flattering.  So, whether you prefer mold or fungus, we can all pretty much agree, it is truly a disgusting slime of a gag inducing substance.

I am not a scientist and therefore cannot tell you the hows and whys of its appearance, but I can sure tell you that it has got to go.  Not only is this stuff gross looking, it can also represent a serious sanitation issue, causing possible illness and health department violations and/or fines.

Most commercial ice machine companies have cleaning and sanitizing instructions on their websites, and there are many YouTube demonstrations as well. However, we realize that not every restaurant has the personnel or the time to get this job done by themselves, so we provide that service.

Let’s face it, removing this goop is nobody’s favorite job.  But at Icesurance, we do believe that our ice machine leasing customers deserve the right to a sanitary ice machine, and to make sure of that, we have our professional, factory trained staff on the road cleaning and sanitizing our customer’s ice machines every day.

That is one of the most important benefits of our full service ice machine leasing programs.  We keep your ice machine clean and free from contamination.

Icesurance takes the hassle out of commercial ice machine cleaning.  We also offer cleaning service to non- leasing customers as well, for a nominal fee.  So, don’t let your ice machine become toxic, don’t let your ice machine become the target of your next health department inspection.

      We recommend 1-2X per year, but that will vary depending on the water quality and if there is any filtration or other water treatment such as an ozone system in place.
