Stairlift Servicing

Servicing is Vital for Stairlift Reliability

Your stairlift gets a lot of wear and tear, carrying you up and down stairs several times a day. When you have a stairlift you quickly come to depend on it and it’s worrying if you can’t be sure it is 100% reliable, and there when you need it.

There’s no need to stress about your stairlift if you keep it well maintained with a regular service and safety check – at least every 12 months.

The older a stairlift is, and the more it is used, the more likely it is to break down simply due to parts and components wearing out.

Rather than waiting until your stairlift comes to a standstill or develops a serious issue before you call for professional help – and possibly face an expensive repair – its preferable to schedule regular services to keep it healthy and happy.


What a Stairlift Service Involves

Suttons’ fully trained stairlift technicians work across Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Devon. They are qualified to carry out a service and safety check of your straight, curved or re-conditioned stairlift every year.

A stairlift service is not a big inconvenience – it won’t take long to perform and can be scheduled at a date and time to suit you so you can choose a time when you won’t be needing your lift for a half hour or so.

We do a comprehensive service, cleaning and checking all the electrical parts and mechanical components of your stairlift so that we can pick up on any potential problems, and prevent them from worsening.

A stairlift service is a sensible investment in maintaining a piece of machinery that you depend on, making sure you can ride it confidently, certain that it won’t let you down unexpectedly.


Caring for a Stairlift

In-between services there are some measures you can follow yourself to take care of your stairlift.

  • Make sure you use it only for the purpose it is intended, the way it is meant to be used.
  • Keep the rails as dust-free as possible by using a vacuum cleaner or wiping with a dry cloth once a week.
  • Keep the rails clear of obstacles (including pets) that may be blocking the lift as it travels up or down stairs.
  • Don’t let children play with the lift and tamper with the controls.
  • Don’t exceed the maximum weight limit of your stairlift.

If you need any help or advice regarding stairlift servicing, safety checks and maintenance, or indeed if your stairlift breaks down, Suttons Stairlifts is ready, willing and able to assist you.
