How to Prepare for Elevator Maintenance

Every year, elevators travel about 1.4 billion miles in the U.S. To keep your elevator running with the best of them, you need to have regular maintenance performed. This maintenance may involve shutting down the elevator for a day, so be sure to plan ahead. Having a plan for scheduled shutdowns will also come in handy if the elevator ever breaks down unexpectedly.

How to Prepare Passengers

While putting up an out-of-order sign is helpful, you can’t just stop there. If you have time to prepare your guests or passengers, inform them as early as possible, so they have time to plan around it. You can also provide them with a pamphlet that explains the improvements that will be made and their alternative options during the shutdown. For instance, you may want to include takeout or grocery delivery resources for those who use the elevator out of necessity. Having these resources handy will also be helpful in the case of an unplanned shutdown.

How to Plan for Potential Repairs

If you know that there are going to be repairs completed on your elevator, you need to plan it wisely. For instance, try to schedule the repairs on calmer days. For example, if the elevator is in an office building, try scheduling repairs over the weekend when most people are not working. Do not have repairs completed during peak hours if you can avoid it. When you plan, you can also warn those in your building about when the repairs will be done.

 How to Perform the Repairs

You should try to have the repairs finished as quickly as possible. One way to save time is to have the contractors work around the clock, in shifts. When you have two or three different shifts, you can have the repairs done a lot quicker. The less time the repairs take, the less money you have to spend and the less inconvenience the guests in your building have to suffer through.

Elevator maintenance is a critical element to your building’s health and safety. When your elevator has to go down for any length of time, you need to do everything you can to keep disruption to a minimum. For more information, contact Puget Sound Elevator Company today!
