Cleaning by Device

Each piece of your equipment was designed for a very specific job, and therefore needs very specific care. To keep your devices healthy for your employees, customers and operations, they must be cleaned both inside and out with products and agents that are made specifically for their unique components.


Don’t let card reader errors, bad receipt images, misprinted barcodes, check scanner misfeeds, or currency miscounts interfere with your business. 




No matter what your company, we have the solutions to keep your equipment clean and performing.

The Issue

Why clean your devices?

To a customer, seeing a fingerprint-ridden or dirty screen is a red herring for something worse. Increase customer retention by not only maintaining a clean environment, but actively promoting your cleaning program. 

Perception

The inside of a card reader is a harbor for germs and bacteria. With each use, bacteria build-up is transferred to the credit cards we handle everyday. 



Safety & Health

The majority of residue build-up inside a device is difficult to get to and can require disassembly in order to clean those hard-to-reach areas.


Product Performance

Build-up leads to:

❌  Errors and rejections

❌  Increased downtime

❌  Jamming and misfeeds

The Answer

Create cleaning and care operating procedures that hold staff responsible for regular cleaning.

Request equipment service organizations that regular cleaning be included in service calls.

Implement a program with staff using the proper products to clean the inside and outside of devices, followed by disinfecting.

Post and communicate your cleaning program and make cleaning visible.

Start the process of forming a cleaning SOP.

The inside of the device should be cleaned daily/routinely with the appropriate product and cleaning agent. Waffletechnology is best for equipment with recessed areas that can’t be reached.

The Program

The outside should be cleaned multiple times per day with a cleaner that will remove dirt, viruses, and bacteria. Use SheerClean wipes to remove grease and oils that build up in high-traffic areas. 

The CDC recommends that you clean prior to disinfecting in order to allow for the disinfectant to work properly.

The surface should look clean prior to disinfecting. If you use harsh chemicals or disinfectants too frequently you can potentially damage or alter surfaces/materials due to over exposure.  

Let your employees and customers know you have cared for the equipment they interact with every day by displaying a notice that your devices are cleaned internally and externally for their health.

How to Clean

ATMs

ATMs are often the primary source of interaction customers have with their bank. Dirt build-up is the cause of downtime, process errors, and an overall poor customer experience.

Why Clean?

The majority of residue build-up inside a device is difficult to get to and can require disassembly in order to clean hard to reach areas. This build-up leads to card read errors, increased downtime, jamming and check imaging errors.

Card Reader

POS Card Reader Terminals are your company’s interface with your customers. Cards carry germs and dirt from one user to another, depositing it in your machine with each use. 

Why Clean?

Dirt and dust seep into the crevices of a card reader's pins, creating a failed transaction that can lead to fallbacks, additional processing fees, and walkaway customers.

Self Check-Out

Self check-outs are commonplace in grocery and big-box stores. These units include card readers, receipt printers, cash acceptors, screens, scanners, and keypads - all of which are used by the public. Dirt from cards, cash, and human contact are continually deposited into and onto these devices. 

Why Clean?

Dirt and germs not only spread from person to person, but grime impedes equipment performance. Cards read improperly, receipts are unclear, bills are rejected, and touchscreens won’t respond correctly.

How to Clean

Why Clean?

Smart Safes

Smart safes are essential to busy environments such as quick service restaurants and convenience stores. 

Without regular cleaning, dust and debris collect on lenses, belts, and rollers leading to fibers and dust causing misreads, counting inaccuracies, and operational failures.

Shipping Stations

Thermal Printers are essential to shipping and receiving departments. Illegible barcodes create errors and penalties for shipments going in or out of a logistics facility. 

Why Clean?

When print heads get dirty, barcodes, labels, and receipts become unreadable and cause errors that impact anyone relying on the accuracy of the print. From mishandled shipments to undelivered packages, these errors can have a costly effect on your organization. 

Remove stubborn adhesive from print heads and rollers with an Adhesive Remove Pen.

How to Clean

Currency Counters

Currency counters are used in convenience stores, retail and grocery stores, banks, and casinos to ensure count accuracy when dealing with large amounts of cash.

Why Clean?

Currency counters cycle through thousands of bills that leave dirt behind on belts, rollers, and lenses. When uncared for, fibers and dust cause misreads, counting inaccuracies, and operational failures.

TVM Parking

Parking kiosks are stand-alone units. When a problem arises, no one is there to fix the problem or override an error. Kiosks are also exposed to the public - sometimes thousands of people on a daily basis. Regular care is needed to reduce the germs and dirt on their surface and maintain performance for their users. 

Why Clean?

Dirt and germs not only spread from person to person, but impedes equipment performance. Cards don’t read properly, receipts are unclear, bills are rejected, and touchscreens don’t respond to touch. 

Swisels are great for cleaning between keys and getting into crevices that collect dirt.

How to Clean

Gas Pumps

Gas pumps are exposed to a lot as they sit outside and are used individually by every customer. With each use the keypad and nozzle are touched, the card reader is used, and the customer is reading the screen for prompts. 

Why Clean?

Dirt, oils, and fuel cover every gas pump, creating issues with card readers, receipt printers, and touch screens. Being outside leaves them exposed to wind and rain, making it easy for nozzles, hoses, and housings to get (and stay) filthy.
