Restaurant Cleaning/Disinfecting & Treating Ice Machines

Sanitize and Clean with Aqueous Ozone Water

 

Spending time and money on harmful chemical cleaners that are not effective does not make sense for any business. Your kitchen surfaces need to be more than topically clean, they need to be removed of all potentially harmful microorganisms. In addition, bacteria and mold build up in commercial ice machines creates a host of problems in your restaurant including: down time for traditional cleaning methods, high costs of expensive filter replacement, and health issues related to bacterial exposure to your customers. Ensure exposed surfaces that come in to contact with food are more than clean.

Your Need

Since the recognition of ice as a source of microbial contamination, science has given us a better understanding of biofilm production and its control. Here’s what we know:

  • Biofilms are a collection of microorganisms, mainly bacteria, growing together in a matrix of polymers secreted by the microorganisms. The associated slime formation is mold or fungus that accumulates from bacterial growth on surfaces constantly exposed to clinging water drops and warm temperatures. The biofilm may cause objectionable flavors and odors in ice.
  • Once well-developed biofilms establish themselves on surfaces, cleaning and sanitation become much more difficult. Biofilms have a shielding effect on the bacterial cells that live within them. It is well known that normal cleaning and sanitizing methods may not control or eliminate biofilms, but rather they must be physically removed or prevented from forming on surfaces. For instance, Listeria can be 1,000 times harder to eliminate if it is living in a protective biofilm and can be a continual source of pathogenic and spoilage organisms if not completely removed.
