Elevator consulting service comprises of maintenance of an elevator performed by a license elevator repair technician or by a person authorized by the property owner. Constant lift maintenance is required.
Cutting corners with elevator maintenance is dangerous, and violations can be prosecuted. Elevators should have a regular repair schedule, maintained by a person with technical and practical knowledge of how a lift works.
Elevator examinations should be performed every six months if it is used to carry people or animals, and every 12 months if it carries nothing but loads, such as industrial materials or other inanimate objects. Elevators are complex machines, so there are several parts that need to be regularly maintained to keep it up to code. All the gearing should be checked for wear and tear, as well as all the doors. The main drive system should have its components checked for wear and lubrication, and the safety gear should also be checked. It is incredibly important to check the ropes that suspend the elevator for wear, or signs of breaking, as well as the backup safety ropes and the emergency braking system. The hydraulics should also be checked and oiled regularly so that the elevator runs smoothly.
