How to Clean a Currency Counter

Keep Your Currency Counters Clean

Currency counters are important pieces of equipment for many businesses. They improve workflow productivity and increase the accuracy of your accounting and financial reporting. As with any piece of equipment, currency counters get dirty with use.

Sources of dirt come from paper flash, dust, oils and residues on bills and notes, and other environmental contaminants.

Businesses often don’t think about routine cleaning until equipment starts malfunctining – and malfunctions result in a poor customer experience and it reflects badly on your brand.

Don’t wait until problems arise. Proactively clean your equipment.

Signs that your currency counters need to be cleaned are:

  • batch back-ups
  • miscounts
  • inaccurate totals
  • bill rejections

  • Microprocessor lenses
  • Backlight lenses
  • Magnetic components
  • External housing & touch points

How to Clean

  1. Insert and hold cleaning card in the top feed to clean rollers.
  2. Turn the card over and insert into the currency counter and allow it to pass through.
  3. Flip the card over and repeat step 2 two more times.
  4. Clean the external housing, trays, and touch points with a pre-saturated cleaning wipe.
  5. Finish cleaning with disinfectant.

How Often to Clean:

Weekly routine cleaning is recommended for internal components while daily external cleaning is recommended for equipment housing. Ideally, disinfecting should be done after each use.

Frequency of cleaning will depend on your particular environment. For example, a restaurant or vending-amusement environment might need more frequent cleaning than a financial institution.
