Your dishwasher makes the operations of your restaurant and food business easier to manage. To ensure that you continue to enjoy the benefits of your commercial dishwasher, your appliance needs regular maintenance. This regular maintenance can help increase the lifespan of your dishwasher and pinpoint several issues before they become a serious problem.
Commercial dishwasher maintenance should not be a difficult task. To help you start, we consulted eight of our reliable commercial dishwasher repair technicians for some tips on how to maintain your equipment.
“Your dishwasher will have a build-up of food debris. Make sure that you wash your dishwasher regularly.”
Food debris not only makes your dishwasher inefficient, but it also provides a breeding ground for moulds, germs and other bacteria. Food that falls from your dishes is collected in a trap at the bottom of the dishwasher. This should be taken and cleaned at least once a month.
“Always check the sprayer arms for debris buildup to ensure that the sprayed water reaches the entirety of your dishes.”
The arms work by spraying water through small holes and a spinning mechanism. Over time, these holes can clog with food debris and dried soap. Use a pipe cleaner to clean the holes.
“If water is leaking around your dishwasher, check the gasket.”
The gasket is the material around your dishwasher door that seals it. Most commercial dishwashers have removable gaskets. Check for tears or holes that may cause the leak. In most cases, you can find a replacement in your home centre.
“Run an empty dishwasher with vinegar.”
Vinegar is a mild acid that helps remove debris while neutralising strong odours. With an empty dishwasher, put one to two cups of white vinegar at the bottom of your dishwasher and run a short, water-saving cycle.
“If you notice bits of rust on your dishes, check the dishwasher rack.“
The dishwasher rack is covered by a plastic coating. If you notice some rust on your dishes, check the rack for nicks and scratches. There are dishwasher repair kits that have a plastic coating that you can paint yourself. Just make sure to remove the rust properly before application.
“Dishwasher moulds can be removed with bleach.”
Moisture, bits of food and the warm temperature is an ideal environment for moulds to grow. Moulds and mildew not only stains your dishwasher, but they are also a health hazard. Dilute a cup of bleach in about 5 litres of water and scrub the interior with a brush.
