The Importance of Preventative Maintenance on Your Stairlift

A stairlift for your home is a big purchase! Once you become accustomed to using your stairlift, life without can be cumbersome and difficult. The importance of caring for your stairlift should be approached the same way that you approach caring for your vehicle. Your vehicle is serviced every so many miles with an oil change and a top off of all the fluids. The mechanic will also check to see if your breaks are still good and an overall check on the wellbeing of your car/truck. Your stairlift should be treated the same way. 

At LiveWell, we recommend that you have an annual inspection done on your stairlift every year. A yearly review is highly recommended! No matter if you have purchased a straight, curved, or outdoor stairlift, receiving an inspection once a year on your stairlift is the best way to ensure it is operating as its maximum capacity even long after you've purchased it. 

You may ask yourself, what all is included with an annual inspection and service? First, it is important to note that our manufacturers recommend that the annual inspection be performed once a year. During this inspection, LiveWell's stairlift technicians will check the following:

  • The voltage on the batteries that power the stairlift.
  • Lubricate all necessary moving parts to prevent any wear or malfunction.
  • Retighten all fasteners.
  • Inspect all of the overall components for wear or potential failure. 

Having these services performed by one of LiveWell's technicians is a great way to successfully set yourself up for years of use out of your stairlift. Give us a call today to schedule your annual stairlift inspection and service.
