Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

Helpful Tips for Elevator Maintenance

Here are elevator maintenance tips that you can follow so your elevator stays in the best possible condition.

Home elevators are magnificent additions to people’s houses. They provide people autonomy and give them the freedom to get wherever they need to be within their homes. Without proper maintenance, however, elevators won’t last as long as they should, and they will be more likely to experience problems down the road. Fortunately, there are things to keep in mind that will help you when performing elevator maintenance so that your elevator remains in good shape. Here are elevator maintenance tips that you can follow so your elevator stays in the best possible condition.

Understanding Different Elevator Service Contracts

There are all kinds of elevator service contracts, and understanding what they all do will help you determine which contract you should choose. When you work with Preferred Elevator, here is what a service contract entails.

Service agreements from Preferred Elevator mean that you get to work with our professionally trained and licensed mechanics. You’ll get 60+ point lubrication and examination service from our mechanics, and we’ll also provide you with discounted rates for any service or components you need in-between your routine examinations. There’s even a yearly inspection fee included in the service agreement, and with no hidden charges \, you know what you’re paying upfront. There will also be around-the-clock emergency services available to you if they are needed.

Code Compliance

When getting elevator maintenance done, your elevator must be in compliance with all regulations in your area. To ensure you stay in compliance, you should work with an elevator maintenance company that understands these regulations. It helps when you work with a local company because they will be most familiar with your area’s regulations.

Do You Need an Elevator Maintenance Control Program?

The answer is yes. These programs are needed to improve the safety of your home elevator. They also prevent your elevator from failing you by putting together an expectation, as well as some tasks for testing, inspections, and maintenance. It’s a necessity for all elevators.
