Dishwasher maintenance tips
Indeed, the dishwasher is a highly convenient and hassle-free way to keep your tableware clean. It even may seem your concern ends with purchasing and installing this appliance. Still, while your dishwasher cares about your plates and glasses, do not neglect caring about the appliance.
Here are a few simple maintenance tips that help you keep your dishwasher at its top performance and extend its life.
Prepare tableware you are going to wash
Yes, dishwasher maintenance starts with such a simple task as preparing your tableware for the washing. To clarify, it often happens that there are some food leftovers on the plate or pan. Moreover, depending on eating habits, the amount of them may be significant. And cleaning them off is a must before loading your plates or pans into the appliance. So, always scrape the food leftovers from your utensils.
Why should you really bother yourself with tableware?
Second, based on our commercial dishwasher repair experience, we can say every fourth unit breakage is a result of neglecting the garbage-scraping procedure. For example, excess garbage blocks spray arm holes or even as much as spray arms themselves quicker than the average rate. Not mentioning its ability to settle itself in the filters and rotting. If the latter is in case, unpleasant odours are what you get for your dishes.
Do not forget about regular cleaning
Yes, the dishwashing equipment is not something to make working and never clean. To tell the truth, cleaning is a must with every piece of equipment. So, what parts (and how often) to clean in the dishwasher?
Here is a list of items to pay attention to first:
Also, descale your appliance at least every three months under normal water harshness. For example, we recommend using specially designed dishwasher cleaners to remove any limescale and mineral deposits.
If your water is hard, we recommend softening it with special dishwasher salt. This enables you to avoid intensive limescale and all negative effects it can cause.
To conclude, these are the procedures you can easily perform by yourself. However, if you need professional dishwasher maintenance, contact us and arrange a visit of our engineer.
