Your stairlift has finally been installed in your home and you can now get to your bedroom on the second-floor with ease. This creates less stress for you and your family and now you can focus on living life smoothly. But for your stairlift to properly transport you from floor to floor for years to come, there are some steps to go through to preserve it.
Read Before Riding
Before you use your stairlift, make sure to go through the instruction manual to know how to properly use the chair. You will also discover different cleaning products to use and how to use them to properly care for your stairlift. It also is important to know the maximum weight your stairlift can handle. Every chair is different, so make sure to read the instructions even if you have stairlift experience.
Keep it Clean
Just like the rest of the furniture in your home, you have to clean your stairlift to maintain its lifespan and its appearance. Simply get a duster or a damp cloth and wipe over the seat and track weekly to prevent a buildup of dust and dirt. Use basic dish soap to clean your stairlift because a detergent can be too abrasive to your chair.
Imagine using your chair and in the middle of getting to the top floor it gets stuck. To prevent any stall in the movement of your chairlift, occasionally lubricate the track with the lubricant supplied for your unit.
The best way to maintain a stair lift chair is to have an inspection performed every year. If any problems arise during the inspection, call a specialist right away. To ensure your stairlift works properly, make sure to keep it fully charged.
