The Do’s and Don’ts of Elevators

Elevators may seem straightforward: they go up and down, and you should check on them sometimes to ensure they are alright. However, there are a lot of misconceptions and a lot of specific maintenance that go into elevators!

As we mentioned in our blog about elevator pit servicing, many people see them as being “out of sight, out of mind,” when that is not the case. Below are the common “Do’s and Don’ts” of elevators!

Don’t: Put Off Maintenance

Regularly scheduled maintenance should remain regularly scheduled. Even if you believe things are running fine, it’s important to have a professional come in and make sure everything is working as it should!

Do: Waterproof

Waterproofing is important in ensuring your elevator remains safe and functional. It is best to have your elevator pit waterproofed immediately; however, if time has passed and there is rust accumulation, you want to ensure you have a company that offers rust remediation and follows EPA disposal guidelines!

Don’t: Cut Corners

When it comes to safety, never cut corners. This means ensuring all maintenance is done, all precautions taken, and any professionally recommended services are considered.

This also means letting professionals handle any liquid waste removal. The disposal of liquid waste is regulated by the EPA- the last thing you want is to cut corners and be met with a huge fine!

Do: Find a Reputable and Knowledgeable Company

With regulations, maintenance, and cleaning, it can be hard to keep track of everything that needs to get done. That is why it is important to ensure you go with a company that is reputable and knowledgeable!
