Best Practices

Cleaning specialized transportation devices on a regularly scheduled maintenance routine aids in operational efficiency, reduced service calls and longevity of the equipment. Based on the manufacturers recommen-dations and customer feedback, we suggest the following best practices for optimal results:

Thermal Printers: Every 3-4 media roll changes or at least 1-2 X per month

Clean more frequently after periods of high use.

Printers become dirty from “paper dust” and adhesives as well as environmental contami-nants. Cards clean the printhead and any build-up on the printer's rollers.

Dirty Device Symptoms

  • Paper Jams
  • Poor print and image quality
  • Poor barcode or receipt legibility
 

Card Readers: Every 1000 swipes or at least 1—2 X per month

Clean more frequently for out-door devices

Cleaning should be done more frequently, especially areas prone to an abundance of dust particles, foot traffic and grime. Failure to clean frequently can cause system failure, device downtime and cus-tomer frustration.

Dirty Device Symptoms

  • Card rejection
  • Reader error
  • Repeated swipes
   

Bill Acceptors: Every time you empty machine or at least 1 X per week

Clean more frequently before and after periods of high use.

Money is exceptionally dirty and can cause device misreads, bill slippage, loss of revenue, opera-tional failure and customer frustra-tion if not cleaned properly.

Dirty Device Symptoms

  • Bill rejection
  • Misreads
  • Device downtime/out of order
   

Screens and Monitors: As Needed

Clean more frequently for out-door devices

Screens, especially touch or sensi-tive screens, should be checked daily for fingerprint and grime build up. Dirty screens are the cause for slow response or erro-neous input, and they can cause customer perception to be that of a poorly run company or facility.

Dirty Device Symptoms

  • Visible dirt, smears, finger-prints
  • Failure to read
  • Dust build up
