Here are the answers of these simple questions.
How do I know whether the coffee machine I am using needs a servicing or not?
Depending on the kind of coffee machine you’re using each machine shows different symptoms. For instance, a few fully automatic coffee machines do have the ability to notify the user when the machine is basically due for a service. However, the one’s that do not have this notifying capacity, the users need to follow the recommendations given by the manufacturer. Then again, a manual espresso coffee machine does not need that much of attention as a fully automated machine. For a domestic espresso machine, the servicing of the machinery needs to be done once in every year. But if it is a commercial espresso machine that runs in offices and cafes, servicing every six to eight months is recommended; however but this too depends on the quality of water used as well as the usage.
How often should de-scaling of a coffee machine be done?
Water quality in the county is not the best and the most common issue with coffee machine in Australia is caused by water minerals and calcium. The coffee machines boiler are constantly full of water, becoming hot and then cold and over time calcium that’s built becomes hard to remove. Even if it gets removed, some major components of coffee machine gets damaged. All these mean, calcium should not be left for long because it may grow and become like a concrete, removing which becomes a tedious task. De-scaling the machine every six to eight weeks is thus recommended. The more often the machine is de-scaled, the longer will it last.
How often should I do the servicing of my coffee machine?
If it’s a domestic espresso coffee machine, get it’s servicing done by a skilled and qualified technician once in every year. But if the espresso machine is used for commercial purpose, make sure to hire a commercial coffee machine servicing expert who can service it after every six months. Many of you may also be using automatic cappuccino machine in your home and have the same question in mind regarding servicing of the machine. You can get it serviced every ten to twelve months.
