Meiko UK has launched a 7-point hygiene checklist to restarting the dishwasher for Meiko customers. Including checks for Legionnaire’s disease, the hygiene checklist covers all the steps needed for safe start-up.
“Dishwashers may have not been used for months and there is a risk that some will still be full of stagnant water,” says Meiko UK Technical Services Director Dave Kemp.
“Heat pumps on any dishwasher can act as a reservoir for disease, so it is vital that caterers check their machines now, before opening.”
Meiko has also launched a ‘re-opening maintenance offer’ for its customers, who can have their dishwashers checked, serviced and re-commissioned from just £145.
Continues Dave Kemp, “Provable hygiene is an essential ingredient for caterers re-opening for the April 12 deadline. Hygiene is now the top priority and our customers will want to prove to EHOs as well as their customers, that they are fully on top of the increased hygiene issues.
“We help our customers by ensuring their glasses, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans are crystal clean and hygienically safe.
“Dishwash hygiene relies on a combination of dishwash mechanics, temperature and chemicals. All three elements must be working in harmony to achieve sanitisation.
“Demand for engineer services is high, so caterers are advised to book early.”
The Meiko maintenance offer is priced from £145 for each undercounter or hood dishwashing machine and provides the caterer with a wash and rinse temperature hygiene audit, proving to the EHO that the machine is certified for hygiene at the start of business.
Also included are:
Supply and replace water pre-filter/ fully flush GiO RO membranes (on machines with GiO reverse osmosis)
Hygienically clean manifold wash system, pump housing, wash chamber and all interior components
Flush and prime in-built chemical dosing systems
Full re-commission of machine with wash/rinse temperature hygiene audit
