Every 3 months is the standard for a professional to provide an inspection of the entire machine. Since the machine is metal with moving parts, it must be checked for signs of metal fatigue. Metal rubbing against metal must be checked for wear. Often a simple correction can save a considerable amount of money.

Similar to an oil change for an automobile, the hydraulic fluid level in a compactor must be changed. There is also a filter in the hydraulic system that should also be changed. It is critical these services are provided every 6 months.

The electrical system is also important since it is the basis for the machine operation. Most of the electrical wiring is incased in piping. Therefore, the integrity of the piping should be visually inspected.

A professional cleaning service should be conducted to internally clean, deodorize and disinfect the compactor and chute. A complete application of bacteria hungry enzymes should be applied. Hopper doors on each floor should be cleaned, adjusted for tension and aligned.
