Of all the places ice machines have found themselves over the years, one of the most highly scrutinized is their place in schools.

From primary schools to universities, ice machine maintenance is taken very seriously. It may come as a surprise, but ice machines in schools are inspected far more often than in nearly any other setting.

Frequent ice machine inspections in schools has led, unsurprisingly, to a much more demanding cleaning schedule than in nearly any other application.

Some schools even conduct ice machine internal maintenance cleaning as frequently as weekly.

The demanding schedule of ice machine maintenance in schools takes a toll. The process of properly sanitizing an ice machine is time-consuming and often expensive. 

It’s difficult to estimate exactly how expensive because ice machine maintenance in schools is an internal function and varies widely.

For educational institutions, the monetary and time costs of maintaining demanding ice machine maintenance schedules is considered justified because the prevention of sickness is a high priority.

With students and faculty sharing close quarters for long periods of time, preventing the spread of illness is of the utmost importance.   

But just because ice machine maintenance in schools can be expensive doesn’t mean it has to be.
