by Residential Lifts Marketing
There are a number of lift companies but not of them has the calibre of catering maintenance related services. There are several things to be taken care of and other than this; one of the most important things is knowing about the services that we can avail in terms of maintenance. In this post, we have come up with some of the most important things that are to be done regarding lift servicing.

Emergency Car Lighting & Communication

• At the time of inspection, you need to ask the experts of the elevator service company to check the battery back-up system for the elevator cab lighting.
• The same is to be done to make sure that the emergency bell as these things can stop working for no good reason.
• Other than this, make sure that you ask the company to show you how to check elevator cab lighting and the emergency bell yourself.

Machine Room & Pit Housekeeping

• Other than this, the next thing to be taken care of is certainly the machine room and pit housed keeping. 
• This might sound like a very simple and a convenient storage location, but the fact about them is that the code says that the machines related to the elevator can be kept in the machine room.
• Therefore, it is recommended that while getting the inspection done, you need to make sure that there are no unrelated items in your machine room. 
• Other than this, one more thing to be checked is the pit that should be absolutely clean and there should be no leaking oil, standing water, litter, etc. as they all raise tripping related risks.

Signs

• Experts from lift companies say that the signs present there are something that should not be skipped at all.
• In this regards, experts add a point that signs like, “IN FIRE EMERGENCY, DO NOT USE ELEVATOR. USE EXIT” and several other warning signs should be checked.
• It has to be made sure that that these signs are clearly visible and situated in the areas, where they are clearly exposed to the people passing from there or approaching the lift.
• Then, additional fire service operation instructions should also be present near the key switches in the lobby and/or the car and for this; you can give instructions to your elevator service company.

GFCI Outlets & Lighting

• Experts from lift companies should ensure that all the machine rooms, pits, and car tops have covered lighting to cater 100 percent protection to the passengers from breakage.
• Other than this, it should also be ensured that the light switches are accessible from both the pit and machine room entrances. 
• The next thing to be very particular about is that the outlets that have built-in GFCI protected circuit breakers are installed by electricians in both pits and machine room.

Emergency Phones

• What is the use of having an emergency phone inside the cabin if it is not functional at all?
• This is another thing that experts from lift companies should take note of and they should actually verify that all the phones are functional all the time.
• Other than this, it has to be ensured that all new elevators installed by the company have a hands-free ADA phone.
