Ice Machine Cleaning Experts
Ice is Food and Should be Handled Accordingly
Ice machines play an important role in every foodservice operation and in many other businesses. If you’ve ever owned an ice maker, you already know how costly trouble service calls are and what a hassle it is when equipment is down.
Fortunately, most trouble calls can be avoided with proper preventive maintenance. Don’t sit back and wait for your equipment to fail. Give us a call and let our service team check this off your list. You can rest easy knowing you’re serving safe, clean ice and getting the most life out of your equipment.
We Want to Share Our Ice Expertise
We’ve been renting ice machines for more than a decade and during that time we’ve learned (the hard way) all the dos and don’ts of commercial ice machine maintenance. Our experience helped us develop best practices for ice machine cleaning, disinfection/sanitation and overall preventive maintenance.By implementing these practices, our rental fleet performed better, our customers were happier and patrons of their establishments enjoyed beverages that tasted better and were safer than ever before. We decided to share our knowledge and offer cleaning services to non-rental customers. The problems we found in the field were astonishing but consistent. Our help was needed in nearly every kitchen we walked into.
Ice machine manufacturers provided instructions for maintaining every machine they produce. These procedures are sufficient for maintaining cleanliness between deep cleanings but the recommended procedures for cleaning/descaling fall short. The only way to remove biofilm (mold and slime) and scale is to disassemble the water distribution system and mechanically remove it. In many cases, circulating cleaning solution without disassembly will result in a service call and/or particulates in the ice.
Signing up for our Polar Preventative Maintenance program will provide peace of mind. You will know your machine has been cleanded and maintained properly and your ice quality is the best it can be and your customers are safe!
MANUFACTURERS AND HEALTH DEPARTMENTS RECOMMEND 6 MONTH CLEANINGS TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF YOUR ICE. SOME ENVIRONMENTS MAY REQUIRE CLEANING EVERY 3 MONTHS. CONTACT A POLAR ICE EXPERT TODAY – WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED!
