5 Easy Ways to Maintain Your Elevator Interiors

February 21, 2022

Elevator interiors are an important part of any establishment because they can impact both the aesthetics and the functionality of a building. As a result, the design of an elevator’s interiors should always be consistent with the other interior design elements in the building without compromising on practicality. However, even the best interiors deteriorate with time, unless they are maintained regularly. 



Here are five easy tips to ensure your elevators are always working in top shape.



Update Your Noticeboards

Regularly updating the elevator noticeboards can help to ensure that all building occupants are aware of any issues or maintenance requirements. It also helps remind engineers and building owners about the maintenance due dates to keep their elevators in proper shape at all times.


Operating Panel Maintenance

An elevator can’t function without well-functioning operating panels. Thus, if the panel is malfunctioning or damaged, the elevator can’t operate safely, leading to injury or perhaps even fatal scenarios for passengers. Hence, most elevators need to be maintained on a weekly basis. This includes inspecting and cleaning the operating panel as well. Routinely check for damaged or malfunctioning buttons in your operating panels, as well as inspect closely for dust and debris. In case there is a major problem with the buttons, then immediately contact the elevator company.


Paint Coating

The paint coating is applied to the exterior of an elevator to help protect it from damage. It provides a seal against the elements and protects the elevator’s metal surface from corrosion. In addition, paint coating also helps protect the elevator interior from water damage, dirt, and scratches. Hence, do make sure to repaint the exteriors after a stipulated period of time.


Upholstery Inspections

Many factors contribute to the importance of regularly changing upholstery inside elevator interiors. Firstly, upholstery is highly susceptible to damage, dirt, and wear that is caused by excessive use, improper care, and age. Hence, regular upholstery maintenance helps prevent such damages, and it also improves the overall aesthetic of the elevator. 


Electronics and Electrical Systems

The elevator’s electronics and electrical systems control everything that happens inside the cabin, and any wear and tear in this region will hinder the operation of the lift and can even possibly cause a fire hazard.


Thus, to ensure the safety of the elevator, it is important to inspect and maintain the electrical wiring and lighting systems. This includes checking for any signs of damage, overloading, or overheating.
