As the weather starts to change, lots of us are spending more and more time in our homes. Naturally, this means that keeping things spick and span around the house starts to become more of a priority this time of year. As a lifetime investment and something you use every day, you’ll want to keep your stairlift clean, too. Read on to learn our best tips for keeping your stairlift in tip-top condition.
It’s natural that you’ll want to keep your stairlift looking and feeling clean and in full working order. To do this, lightly dust the seat and handrails regularly with a duster or dry cloth. The equipment itself will not need cleaning, but wiping over the seat and the controls will ensure that the parts being handled during everyday use are kept clean and germ-free.
When it’s time for a spring clean, you may be tempted to dig out the bleach and disinfectant. But, in actual fact, you should never use any solvents, bleach or other home cleaning products on your stairlift, as this can damage the equipment. It’s very rare that your stairlift will need a deep clean, if at all. If you feel your stairlift needs some TLC, use a damp (but not wet) cloth to gently remove and dirt or dust build up.
Servicing and warranty
When you purchase a stairlift from Halton, every type of stairlift comes with a completely free 12 month warranty. Standard cover starts from the very same day that your stairlift is installed, and this includes new and reconditioned stairlifts also.
It’s helpful to know that standard warranty from Halton comes with a 24-hour emergency call-out service, too.
