How Often Should Home Elevator Inspection Be Done
Elevator maintenance must be performed by a professional elevator company in Louisiana. Louisiana Stairlifts has been providing skilled residential elevator maintenance to customers throughout the area for years. Here are three things we’d like you to know about caring for your elevator:
- Schedule Safety Inspections.
In general, residential elevators should be inspected by a professional inspector once a year. However, some states and some elevators require more frequent inspections; talk to a member of our team for more details about what’s required for your system. In addition, the condition of your elevator and the frequency of use may indicate a greater need for inspections. Work with your service provider to develop an inspection schedule for your unit.
- Schedule Regular Maintenance
Maintenance is an investment that saves time and money over the long run because staying on top of minor issues prevents more extensive problems from developing. Regular upkeep will prolong the life of your elevator. Follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule faithfully and keep a detailed log of everything. Safety inspections can often be conducted in conjunction with scheduled maintenance calls, so there’s no need to schedule an additional visit.
- Pay Attention
You use your elevator multiple times every single day. Pay attention to what you see and hear every time you ride. Listen for unusual sounds, look at the cab and buttons, and notice if anything feels different about the ride. Your senses are the first alert that something might not be working the way it should. Again, keep a log to share what you're experiencing with your technician.
