Spring Clean Your ATM

PAI – May 15th, 2013

Spring Clean Your ATMWith spring upon us, itís time to make sure your ATM is top working condition and looks good as well. An unclean ATM may deter customers from coming back, as well as increase the chances of it malfunctioning. Follow these three helpful tips each spring to get your ATM clean, working and looking as good as new.

Before you begin, always be sure to turn the power off and unplug all electrical cords, and never use water on any electrical components.

1. Begin your ATM and ATM equipment spring cleaning by removing debris from the bottom of the vault. Use a vacuum to suction out any dust or small particles that could kick up and cause jams in the motor or sensors. Wipe down the vault with a damp cloth to remove any built up grime on the walls.

2. Use a can of compressed air to clean the cash dispenser and printer assembly. This will remove any accumulation of dust or paper pieces that could be affecting sensitive parts, such as sensors or roller components.

3. Create a mild cleaning solution by combining two drops of dish soap per 12 ounces of warm water. Use this solution to wipe down the pick wheels, belts, and outside surface areas of the ATM. Be sure not saturate any components, as too much water can cause corrosion and other damage.

These simple cleaning tips will ensure the ATM is functioning at maximum efficiency and providing your customers the best possible experience. Depending on your ATMís location, it may be necessary to perform these measures several times throughout the year. Itís important to have a clean ATM to keep customers returning!
