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.

The Importance of Elevator Repairs

Don't let a broken elevator slow down your day.

Don’t let a broken elevator slow down your day.

As you ride the elevator to your apartment floor, you notice that it opens slightly below your floor so you have to climb out.  Now you have to call your landlord to get it fixed. Elevator repairs are an important part of ensuring the safety of residential and commercial elevators. While preventative maintenance minimizes significant elevator issues, eventually some repairs will be necessary.  From safety to efficiency, repairing your elevator is a necessity.

Increasing Mobility of Everyday Life

Some people can climb the stairs with ease and do not have to  rely on an elevator. But other people might be struck with mobility issues and do rely on an elevator to get them to certain places in a building.  They should not have the inconvenience of being stuck in an elevator.  For their peace of mind, and yours, elevator repairs should be swiftly-addressed.

Ensuring Whatever Problems Exist Don’t Get Worse

Existing problems can cause or contribute to more issues in the future. Having professionals come to inspect for problems and diagnose the problems is the best course of action. Once they diagnose the issue, implementing the proper repairs should be easy. Responsible and timely maintenance and repairs extend the lifespan of residential elevators and keep them running for as long as you may require them. By investing in repairs, you do not have to spend unnecessary money replacing an elevator.
