Elevator maintenance: Keeping your lift running smoothly

Lifts are an integral part of modern living, transporting millions of people every day in buildings across New Zealand and the rest of the globe. However, like any mechanical system, elevators require regular maintenance to ensure they operate efficiently and safely. By neglecting your elevator maintenance, you risk costly repairs, down time, and even creating hazardous situations. To help you, your family or business keep safe, we suggest the following: 

Schedule regular inspections 
A routine inspection schedule is crucial for identifying potential issues before they escalate. An elevator technician should conduct thorough inspections according to manufacturer recommendations and regulations. Cremer Lifts has a dedicated team of trained lift technicians to assist with inspections and lift servicing. 

Perform preventative maintenance 
Regular lift maintenance is essential for preserving the safety, reliability and efficiency of the elevator systems. This will help extend the lifespan of the elevator components and minimize unexpected breakdowns. Tasks such as lubricating moving parts, cleaning elevator components, checking door mechanisms and inspecting electrical systems should be performed regularly. 


Address any repairs promptly, as soon as you notice them 
Even small issues such as an unusual noise or slow door operation should not be ignored. Addressing these issues as soon as they arise prevents them from developing into larger issues.
