Stairlift Servicing Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset & Hampshire
If having a stairlift installed in your home can be life-changing. It allows for easy access to the upper floors and for most people brings a feeling of freedom and independence that they had thought was lost to them.
Here at Simply Stairlifts it gives us great pleasure to be able to bring this wonderful mobility aid to those who need it across Bristol, Dorset, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Somerset and Wiltshire. On installation, however, we always warn our customers that a stairlift is not a metaphysical device that will keep on giving tireless service forever; it is a machine, like any other, consisting of a collection of numerous moving parts and electrical components.
Just like your boiler or car, a stairlift needs to be properly maintained to keep working properly and ensure its life is extended for as long as possible. Together with its built-in safety features, a stairlift is a complex piece of engineering. New stairlifts generally come with a warranty that includes free initial services, but if you have a reconditioned or old stairlift you need to have it checked over thoroughly by professional engineers – like those at Simply Stairlifts – at least once a year.
The cost of a service is certainly not an unnecessary expense. Not only can it prevent you from being left in the lurch with a faulty stairlift, but regular maintenance can also prevent you being left facing a bill for expensive repairs or even having the stairlift condemned and having to invest in a new one.
Because we want you to be able to enjoy the benefits and convenience of your stairlift for as long as possible, the Simply Stairlifts team are happy to offer you a stairlift service contract, tailor made to suit your particular stairlift and circumstances. We’ll schedule a service at regular intervals, when it suits you,and you can rest assured that your stairlift won’t let you down.
Our fully qualified engineers are committed to taking care of you and your stairlift, and will check all mechanical and electrical parts to make sure they are operating correctly and safely, make any necessary adjustments, and lubricate the track.
The stairlift service will include a complete health check – you could say an “MOT” for stairlifts – and you will be given a report detailing advising of any items that need immediate repair or that should be watched for future developments.
You can do your bit, too, to ensure that your prized stairlift receives the care and attention it deserves to keep giving you superb service. Keep the track free of dust, dirt and debris, and the chair itself wiped occasionally with a damp cloth. (Make sure the stairlift is at the bottom of the stairs when you clean it to prevent any falls.)
Never use solvents, bleaches or abrasives to clean your stairlift because these could damage the electric circuits or delicate parts of the stairlift.
Most important is to educate your family members on how important the stairlift is to you, and discourage youngsters from using it as a toy! You’d be surprised how many stairlift repairs we’ve had to undertake because of joyriding grandchildren.
Whatever make or model of stairlift you have, contact Simply Stairlifts to arrange for a one-off service or maintenance contract to keep it in good condition.
