Don't forgo easy maintenance
Some of the most common issues we see could have been solved in seconds per day. No one *likes* cleaning out their coffee machines, and I don't know too many people who eagerly await the next descaling cycle. But when the time comes to call a technician, you'll wish you had.
If you own a modern bean to cup machine, most units will walk you through both of these processes. Two of our most common units, both manufactured by Bravilor Bonamat (Bravilor Sego, and Bravilor FreshGround XL233, have an easy to use cleaning/rinse cycle right on the home screen.
The descaling routine for the Bravilor Sego Bean to Cup Machine has a few additional steps, but nothing that couldn't be accomplished quickly and easily.
-Open the front door
-Place the service key in the appropriate opening
-Press the program button
-Select the descaling cycle on the touch screen
-Follow the on-screen prompts
Don't wait until it's too late. Preventative maintenance can save you hundreds, or even thousands of dollars over the years. Not to mention, proper maintenance can prevent down times that hurt employee morale (office coffee machines), or hurt revenue and reputation (coffee shops and other retail sales).
