Besides installations and elevator repairs in Port St. Lucie, we also provide maintenance plans to extend the lifespan of your elevator.
We get a lot of questions about commercial elevator maintenance. That’s why we’re going to go over some of these frequently asked questions in this post.
Why Is Preventative Maintenance Important?
There are many reasons preventative maintenance is important for elevators in commercial buildings. For starters, preventative maintenance slows down the wear and tear on your equipment and gives it a longer lifespan. With routine maintenance performed on your equipment, your elevator is less likely to fail and your equipment will operate more efficiently.
Elevators that have routine preventative maintenance tend to have a smoother and quieter ride than lifts that aren’t maintained properly. Preventative maintenance can also help your equipment run more efficiently. Ultimately, this can save you money on your energy bills each month. Performing regular maintenance can also allow a trained technician to have a better chance of diagnosing potential future issues.
What Is Involved In Elevator Maintenance?
The maintenance your elevator requires will depend on the type of elevator you have, including whether it has a machine room.
Elevator equipment consists of a complex system of many moving parts and mechanisms. One component of routine maintenance is lubricating all areas of your lift that need it. It also involves cleaning all moving parts and electrical contacts to ensure efficient electrical continuity. This is necessary because as your lift operates over time, bolts can loosen so they’ll need to be tightened.
How Often Is Maintenance Required?
Commercial elevators that are regularly tasked with big jobs, like operating in high rise buildings, tend to need more frequent maintenance than other elevator systems. Most commercial elevator maintenance plans call for monthly service. This gives you the peace of mind that your elevator is running safely and efficiently. In addition to regular maintenance, annual inspections are also important.
