If you’re the owner of a new stairlift—or if you’re thinking about purchasing or even renting a model—you’ve probably already given some thought to the sort of maintenance and upkeep you’ll need to perform.
When customers ask us for advice about keeping their stair lifts in top working order, we usually begin by suggesting they think of their stair lift just as they would any other piece of expensive machinery, such as an automobile, a lawn mower, or even a dishwasher.
As with those three examples, a stair lift is a complex machine with many moving parts. In order to keep it operating in the same manner it did when you first purchased it, and in order to keep it safe, you need to look after it on a regular basis.
The service techs we employ at PA Stair Lifts are more than capable of performing any sort of maintenance task, no matter how complicated or seemingly insignificant. But throughout the long life of your stair lift, you’ll save a fair bit of money if you get in the habit of servicing your machine on a regular basis.
Performing light maintenance and cleaning every few weeks is generally sufficient. We suggest simply adding the tasks to your regular housecleaning routine. That’s an easy way to turn regular upkeep into a habit.
