Easy Ice Service Enhancements Prevent Ice Machine Mold
Certain work environments produce a more prevalent amount of ice machine mold than your normal environment.

90% of the time, technicians are successful in identifying potential conditions for enhanced service with your help. The remaining 10% of the time, we’ll discover severe conditions after we install the machine. Misdiagnosing an environment often happens when work conditions change, or there was a lack of clarity during the site survey (common with customers who get an ice machine for the first time).
The best way to avoid misidentifying the condition of your work environment is to have someone on-site who is knowledgeable about your kitchen during the site survey.
