If you work at a management level with the commercial food and catering industry you have probably thought for long hours about how to help your staff to work more efficiently. However, have you even considered whether your appliances are performing as efficiently as they could be?
In a commercial setting, your appliances do a lot of important work and your commercial dishwashers are no exception. Even if you run a relatively small business, your dishwashers are likely dealing with several full loads per day to keep you in operation.
Taking time to ensure that your commercial dishwasher is running as effectively as possible will be a small task that makes a big difference. When your dishwasher is working more efficiently it will clean dishes better while using less water and power, saving you money.
Tips to Improve Your Dishwasher's Efficiency
If you are looking to give your commercial dishwashers a boost and make them more effective than ever so that you can streamline your operation, here are some tips:
* Clean your dishwashers often. The mechanisms and drains inside will become clogged with food particles after a while which can slow down the efficiency of the dishwasher. Pour a bowl of white vinegar through the dishwasher at least once per month so that you can dissolve all of the calcium which will have built up around the drain and the jets.
* Turn off the heated dry option. Did you know that a great deal of the energy used by a dishwasher is spent heating the dishes to dry them? Instead you can use a high quality rinse aid that will help the dishes to dry faster to avoid those annoying spots from appearing on the glasses.
* Don't overcrowd the dishwasher. When your cafÃ© or restaurant is very busy it is tempting to stuff a large load of dishes in your commercial dishwashers. However, loading your dishwasher too much can make it much less efficient and might lead you to have to rerun the entire load because nothing was properly cleaned.
* Clean the seals. Every few months you should take a look at the rubber gaskets and seals around the doors of your dishwashers. If they are damaged or dirty they will start to leak so they bring the efficiency of your dishwasher down.
* You can also check out the spinning water-sprayer arms within the dishwasher. Often food and other debris will get stuck on these arms and prevent the proper flow of water. It can be pulled out with tweezers.
These are just a few things that you can do to make your commercial dishwasher run more efficiently so that you can cut costs and improve productivity.
