Having an automated teller machine (ATM) in your establishment significantly contributes your operation’s revenue growth. It increases revenue by providing customers the convenience of attaining cash and encouraging greater foot traffic.
However, a Denver ATM machine can only perform its job well if it’s in good condition. Otherwise, it risks becoming a hassle for customers to effectively use, which can actually start driving business away from your establishment.
Given this, it’s important to conduct routine maintenance on your ATM. While ATM installers should perform regular maintenance, you can do your part as well to ensure that the machine is serviceable everyday.
Cleaning your ATM supports its overall function. All you need is a dry or slightly damp, lint-free cloth to wipe the parts that you can reach. Easily remove dust and debris that collects in the cash dispenser by using a can of compressed air. The rollers should also be lubricated. But, first make sure that you read the manual for instructions on how to lubricate the rollers correctly.
Inspect for Tampering
To protect your customers from card skimming and other security risks, check the machine for any signs of tampering. Inspect the card reader in and out for skimming devices, as well as the entire machine for drilled holes, unusual attachments, and overlays. If you notice anything suspicious, don’t let the customers use it and report it to the police immediately.
Protect the Machine
Harsh elements such as moisture and extreme temperatures can wreak havoc on an ATM in Denver. If the weather is too cold, a space heater can keep your ATM at an optimal temperature to avoid motor and belt issues.
In case of a storm, don’t leave the ATM exposed. Envelope it under a tarp or heavy plastic sheet to protect it from the elements. Letting it sit in a place where it might catch rain or snow will likely result in a costly repair.
These simple maintenance tips can go a long way in ensuring that the machine functions well while extending its service life. However, this doesn’t mean you can forgo a professional routine maintenance. It’s necessary to make sure that all parts, especially those you aren’t able to inspect, are working fine.
