3 signs that it is time for a commercial dishwasher service

If the oven is the heart of the kitchen, the dishwashing equipment is most certainly the backbone. This is even more prevalent in commercial kitchens where appliances are worked harder than in domestic settings.

The constant use of any appliance is sure to take a toll on its efficiency and commercial dishwashers are no exception to this. Even with the best attention to care, appliances don’t last forever. However, with regular commercial dishwasher services and maintenance, you can ensure they reach their full lifespan potential.

Let’s take a look at some of the signs that it is time for a commercial dishwasher service.

Your commercial dishwasher is leaking water

If you spot water leaking out of your appliance, this is a sign that it is time for a commercial dishwasher service. The leaking water is usually as a result of an ageing tank that could need repairing or replacing. By regularly booking a commercial dishwasher service, you can stay on top of these small repairs and save money in the long run.

If the leak persists despite regular commercial dishwasher service visits, it may be time to replace your appliance.

The dishwasher is on, but it is not cleaning dishes effectively

A brand new commercial dishwasher will leave your dishes sparkling every time, but so should a regularly maintained commercial dishwasher. If you are finding that your pots, pans and utensils are not coming out of your dishwasher clean, it is worth booking a commercial dishwasher service visit so that a qualified engineer can assess your appliance and make the necessary repairs.

Sometimes this is as simple as a dirty filter filled with food residue that just needs to be disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. However, if your commercial dishwasher has not been properly maintained this may need to be replaced.

Regular servicing can also ensure that the right amount of dishwasher detergent and rinse aid is being dispensed into the appliances. A dishwasher can be in perfect condition but if you are not using the correct dosage can severely reduce its effectiveness. Keeping up with regular services will also ensure that dishwashers are operating at correct temperatures. When dishwashing appliances are not working at their optimum temperature it can have an adverse effect on its performance.

How can I maintain the lifespan of my commercial dishwasher?

To avoid early replacement of your commercial washing equipment and keep repairs at bay, there are a few things you and your staff can do to keep your appliance running smoothly.

One of the best and simplest ways to avoid a commercial dishwasher service or repair is to keep up with regular and deep cleaning. By thoroughly cleaning your appliances regularly you can stop various food particles from building up inside the unit and affecting its performance.

It may sound obvious but staying on top of regular repairs can also keep more serious visits at bay. By getting any repairs done as soon as possible you can prevent them from getting worse. Repairs that are left too long can become very expensive and sometimes irreparable.

Commercial dishwasher servicing can keep your appliance going strong for many years.
