Tips for Keeping Your Elevator in Good Shape This Winter
The winter weather in the Baltimore and DC area can vary greatly. While this changeable weather can be challenging for people, it doesn’t have to be challenging for your elevator. With a few extra preparations and some targeted maintenance, you can make sure your building transport system makes it through the colder season in excellent shape.
At Action Elevator, our service team delivers quality service year-round, even when it’s snowing. We will ensure your elevator provides fast, clean, and reliable service for your clients.
Elevator Maintenance Checklist for Winter
When you partner with us, you can feel confident that your elevator will operate correctly. During winter, our experienced staff will perform all regular maintenance services while maintaining a close look at certain items:
- Temperature management that keeps clients and components comfortable
- Weatherstripping if your system is exposed to the elements
- Reinforcement of windows and other vulnerable items
- Electronic control valve maintenance for optimal ride comfort and performance
For hydraulic elevators, we will also pay close attention to the tank heater and hydraulic battery. Even when the weather turns dicey, your elevator still needs to function at top capacity.
Proven Maintenance Principles for Winter
No matter where your commercial elevator is located, it will require a little extra attention during the colder months. This might lead to more frequent cleaning and require a good set of entrance mats that are rotated regularly. Preventing a buildup of snow, ice, and rock salt can help protect the components of your elevator and avoid outages.
It is hard to predict what the weather will be from December through to spring. Maintenance from a quality team is the best way to meet the specific needs of your elevator. Action Elevator is an experienced, full-service, professional elevator company serving Baltimore and Washington DC.
