The Cleaning of Your Vacuum Packaging Machine

Vacuum packaging machine is usually used to seal fresh and raw foods. Therefore, they are extremely susceptible to contamination and require regular cleaning. After using the vacuum cleaner, be sure to clean it well. This will prevent any dust, bacteria and/or other unwanted elements from spreading in your device. Ideally, you should clean the vacuum packaging machine after each use to prevent this from happening.

The Tips for Cleaning

1.Don’t Use Harsh Chemicals to Clean Your Vacuum Packer

Vacuum packaging machines are usually used to seal food, so it is important to avoid the use of chemicals. Harsh chemicals should be voided when cleaning your appliance. Vacuum packers are generally used to seal food products so avoiding chemicals is crucial. It could be better to use mild soaps instead will reduce the risk of any health problems and/or chemical damage to the sealer itself.

2.Don't Use Wet Cloths When Cleaning Your Vacuum Packer

It is important to remember not to use a damp cloth when cleaning the vacuum packaging machine. If the cloth is wet, there is a risk of water dripping into the electrical components of the device. Therefore, please always use a slightly damp cloth to wipe the machine to prevent electric shock or damage to the vacuum packer. What is more, It is important to also always unplug your vacuum packer before starting any cleaning processes.

3.Remove Soap Residue in the Vacuum Packaging Machine

When cleaning the vacuum packaging machine, any evidence of soap residue on your appliance should be removed immediately. Not removing any cleaning residue could result in a build-up of bacteria which can cause health issues. This is because if soap residue is not properly rinsed away it attracts dirt and dust to the machine. To ensure your vacuum packer is rinsed efficiently, it is advised to give it a second wipe down with a dry cloth.

When there is moisture in the vacuum pump or the color of the oil turns black, the new oil should be replaced at this time. Generally, it will work continuously for one or two months.
