Ensuring you have a high quality lift installation completed is arguably the most important step when planning your lift. However, lift maintenance is just as important for your lift’s health in the long run.
It’s easy to overlook this step; thinking that once your lift has been installed, if it’s been completed correctly, you can forget about it and let it be. However, properly maintaining your lift can be invaluable to you and your lift.
A quick look at the benefits of properly maintaining your lift installation show that you can:
Increase the longevity of your lift
Decrease running costs
Cut down on the number of outages
Saving yourself any legal troubles in the event a breakdown occurs
If you want to ensure that your lift is always efficient, reliable and safe, you need to get regular check-ups by qualified engineers.
You may think that by not having regular maintenance carried out, you’re saving yourself time and money, however, it has been proven that lifts that don’t work to maximum efficiency and are prone to breakdowns actually cost you more in energy costs and call out fees. A proper maintenance test doesn’t take that much time out of your day and can be even done out of working hours to avoid disruption. It’s more of a disruption for a fault to occur, have people stuck in a lift and have it out of service for weeks or months whilst it is fixed.
The frequency of your maintenance truly depends on the kind of lift you have, it’s size, and how often it is used. Your lift provider will be able to give you a solid recommendation to ensure you don’t run into any trouble.
