What’s The Difference Between Cleaning and Descaling A Coffee Maker?
There might not be an easier way to brew a cup of coffee than to pop a K-Cup pod into a single-serve Keurig coffee maker. But Keurig machines need to be cleaned and descaled like any other coffee maker to ensure the coffee’s flavor isn’t diminished from the oily residue and that the machine is operating without technical issues.
As some may think there is no difference between cleaning and descaling a Keurig machine- both processes have different benefits. While cleaning is done for the elimination of rancid substances, the aim of descaling is the removal of mineral build up in the machine.
Introducing the 2 in 1 XROM Oxy Cleaner, a must have for all Keurig brewers. Maintaining your Keurig machine with our Oxy Cleaner kit is specifically built to maintain the quality of your coffee as well as enhancing the machines lifespan. It supports removal of accumulated limescale and other mineral build-ups while providing the freshest tasting coffee.
Cleaning & Descaling: What's the difference?
While both cleaning and descaling helps to ensure a safe and effective process that leaves clean, great tasting coffee and a longer lifespan of your machine-
A cup of coffee is nearly 99% water, making it one of the most important elements in brewing a good cup of coffee. All water contains minerals like calcium and magnesium, which pass through your coffee machine and eventually accumulate on the machine’s heating element as limescale. Descaling a coffee maker is the process of removing that mineral buildup. Water that is considered “hard” is even more damaging to coffee machines because it carries a higher percentage of these minerals. Because the heating elements in a machine can’t be seen, months of mineral buildup could exist without you knowing it.
Cleaning your coffee equipment removes built-up coffee oil residue that accumulates over time. It is important to maintain both cleaning and descaling processes as they help provide safe, tasty coffee.
As mentioned earlier, the job of the XROM Oxy Cleaner 2 in 1 kit is to get rid of coffee oil and help eliminate every lime scale particle, making your coffee safe for consumption. The oxy cleaner is made of active oxygen and citric acid that supports both processes. The Citric Acid, which is commonly found in lemons/limes is not harmful to human health and does not have adverse effects after use.
