You could positively impact your ability to move freely throughout your home with the addition of a stairlift. Investing in your well-being is essential, something you will want to safeguard and protect. Taking care of your stairlift is relatively simple and can genuinely impact your ability to use your stairs safely. Routine care and annual maintenance are a few things you can to make sure your lift can do its job correctly. Acorn Stairlifts offers a few options for more extended warranties so you can get the aftercare you need when you need it most.  Take a look at the things you can do to maintain your stairlift in tip-top shape.   

Before Aftercare   

Taking care of your stairlift can be done by doing the little things day today.  How you use and take care of your lift can have an impact on longevity and usability. One of the essential parts of this is making sure only the intended user is using the lift. The stairlift should not be climbed on or played on; doing so could be hazardous to both the individual and your stairlift. Limit who you let use the lift if they do not need it, as it is an investment in yourself and you want to protect it.   

Caring regularly for your stairlift can also be pretty impactful. When cleaning, pay extra attention to the rail and carriage portion of the lift. Have a loved one help you clear off any grime or dust that can get built up and cause potential damage.   

Finally, keep a watchful eye on the performance of your stairlift. If you hear or see something, check the handy diagnostic display; if it shows any errors, you may review your stairlifts guidebook.
