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 To Maintaining Your Stairlift

Elan Stairlift

Learn how to care for your stairlift.

Installing a stairlift inside your home is a great solution for anyone with a mobility issue, or that has trouble walking up and down stairs.  Once you start using your stairlift, it is essential that you go through the proper steps to care for the unit.  You want to avoid making any costly repairs to your stairlift.  Luckily, there are a few simple ways to care for your stairlift so that it lasts for many years to come!

Keep It Clean

One of the simplest ways to care for your stairlift is to clean it at least once a week so you can maintain its exceptional function.  All you have to do is wipe down the seat and track with a damp cloth to remove any built-up dirt.  Occasionally you want to oil the track so you can avoid any sticking during travel.  Make sure to avoid detergent and harsh solutions that will deteriorate parts of your stairlift.

Treat It Nicely

When using your stairlift make sure to be as gentle as possible.  Be aware of the weight limits and try to stay within the constraints at all times.  It is critical that there is only one person using your stairlift at a time.  Make sure that there are no children playing with your stairlift.  You want everyone to be safe, as well as keeping your stairlift in pristine condition.
