15 Sep How To Save Money and Time With Elevator Maintenance
Your elevator is one of the most important components of your building. Your guests, staff, and others rely heavily on it for transportation through the building. At PEAK Elevator, we understand the importance of a safe, well-maintained elevator.
Obey Safety Regulations
If you do not maintain your elevator, it can lead to a hazardous situation. However, when you follow all of the regulations, you have little to worry about. It can be hard to stay up to date with all the changing regulations. With routine maintenance from PEAK, you can rest assured that your elevator is always up to code.
Stay Proactive With Maintenance
When you invest in maintenance, you are preventing future problems. If you have monthly inspections, you are more likely to catch issues early, long before they are costly. Some hazards may not be obvious at first, but a certified elevator contractor can check for various problems that you may overlook. Elevators have a heavy job and need to be checked often.
Assess Emergency Equipment
To keep your elevator truly safe, you need to be prepared for an emergency situation. Your elevator has emergency communication, door safety devices, and lighting systems. These safety amenities need to be functioning at all times. Check the emergency systems monthly to ensure that if there were an emergency, you would be prepared. If you do not have your emergency systems in working order, you could face fines and other potential liabilities.
Keep a Clean Machine Room
Your machine room should be clean at all times. Per code, no other items should be stored in the elevator machine room except for elevator-related equipment. Other items being stored in the machine room can cause fire-related damages and are a violation of elevator code, which could result in a violation report and/or fine.
If you want to ensure that your elevator is safe and runs smoothly, you need routine elevator maintenance. When you work with PEAK Elevator, we can make sure that you have regular service and proactive maintenance for your commercial elevator. Contact us today!
