The Importance of Elevator Preventative Maintenance

Preventative Elevator maintenance is a crucial aspect of building management. While the maintenance cost of your elevator equipment is a small fraction of your overall building operation costs, its impact is immense. The performance of your elevators is one of the most visible and essential factors in how your building is perceived. At Southern Elevator, we firmly believe that cutting corners on elevator maintenance can have severe long-term consequences.

The Impact of Neglected Elevator Maintenance

Inadequate preventative maintenance can lead to a downgrade in the overall impression your building gives. Passengers may experience:

  • Inconsistent Service
  • Longer Wait Times
  • Safety Concerns

These issues can tarnish your building’s reputation and potentially lead to legal liabilities in the event of accidents. 

Additionally, neglecting elevator equipment and failing to conduct proper inspections can result in substantial repair expenses. Delayed maintenance may even force you into the premature modernization of your elevators, a significant and costly undertaking that can disrupt your building’s operations for an extended period.
