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.

Tips for Getting Your Dumbwaiter Cleaned

If you want to learn how to properly clean your home dumbwaiter, keep reading.

If you have a dumbwaiter at home, then you likely use it consistently, if not every day. Through regular use, however, dumbwaiters will get dirty. As such, there will come a time when it’s necessary to clean it. Tending to your dumbwaiter’s cleaning needs helps keep it reliable and safe for anyone who might want to use it. If you want to learn how to properly clean your home dumbwaiter, keep reading.

Go With a Steaming Device

Dumbwaiters aren’t always the largest features in your home. Therefore, it might be difficult to get into every nook and cranny when attempting to clean it, at least if you’re simply trying to clean it by hand.

However, if you invest in a steam device to help with the cleaning process, it can do wonders for you. Steam can get into spaces that other cleaning tools might have trouble accessing. This helps to ensure that even the tightest spaces can be effectively cleaned.

Bring in Professional Help

There are many reasons why you might not have time to clean your dumbwaiter. Maybe you work long hours at your job, or you have many children at home who need constant care. Whatever the reason may be, cleaning your dumbwaiter on your own might be too taxing on your time.

This is when it can be wise to bring in professional help to get it cleaned. Professionals have years of experience and they also have the best cleaning tools available.

Check On Your Dumbwaiter Frequently

If you don’t keep dumbwaiters clean, they can start being less efficient.. Therefore, it’s important that you check on yours every now and then if you are not using it consistently. Just keep an eye on it and see if you notice any dirt buildup. By catching messes early on, you can keep your dumbwaiter running efficiently
