Given how many public and private buildings now feature lifts in Singapore, it should be unsurprising that more property owners than ever are looking into maintenance services to keep them running safely. Whether readers are facing an emergency breakdown or they just want to have their lifts inspected to ensure that everything is in working order, they’ll have to find a reliable lift maintenance company that can help. Read on to find a few tips on how to do so.
Custom Service Plans
The frequency with which lifts must be inspected and maintained varies greatly depending on how often they are used and in what context. Commercial lifts are often used consistently throughout the day and must carry multiple people safely and smoothly, which means they’ll need to be inspected and maintained more frequently than less frequently used residential lifts. Find a company that offers customized service plans to save money on maintenance.
Given that lifts are designed to carry valuable cargo, it’s essential that those entrusted with repairing them be able to offer the highest level of professionalism and performance. Commercial building owners, in particular, should also ensure that they hire a company that will focus on meeting safety regulations and minimizing downtime so that their businesses do not suffer while maintenance and repairs are performed.
Contemporary, Accurate Information
Given that the technologies used in commercial and residential lifts are constantly changing, it can’t be understated how important it is to work with contractors who are able to stay on top of ever-changing industry standards. Access to the most up-to-date information will allow them to make quick and accurate diagnoses, repair problems as efficiently as possible, and offer the best preventative maintenance that can help avoid the need for repairs, to begin with.
The BCA has mandated that all lifts be inspected and maintained on a monthly basis, though exceptions do apply to residential lifts. Property owners must also renew the PTO or Permit-To-Operate for their lifts on an annual basis. Be sure to work with a company that is familiar with all relevant regulations and tests to ensure that renewing this permit will not be a hassle.
