How to Clean a Check Scanner

Check scanners and document scanners are used in banks at the teller counter or back office and in businesses with remote deposit capture (RDC) operations. Cleaning cards are designed to clean the lenses, rollers and check paths without dismantling the equipment. The cleaning cards remove dust, oils and debris that accumulate during normal operation. Equipment should be cleaned weekly or every 2000 scans.

By not cleaning, you risk increased:

  • Transaction failures resulting in lower customer confidence
  • Labor costs to reconcile poor images
  • Higher maintenance costs
  • Inconvenient unplanned downtime
  • Rejected transactions based on poor image quality
  • Embarrassing equipment malfunctions
  • Frantic repair attempts in front of customers
