Effective, Affordable Elevator Maintenance Contracts
Whether you are the facility manager or the head of maintenance, your job is to make sure your lifts and elevators remain in operating condition and in compliance with all ADA, state, and federal regulations. The older your systems become, the more important routine maintenance inspections become. Think of your First Coast Elevator maintenance contract as an investment in the longevity and performance of your elevator systems.
Although Florida currently does not require you to have an elevator maintenance contract in place, it is still a service expense you should factor into your annual budget.
According to 2017 Florida statues section 399.061, “All elevators or other conveyances subject to this chapter must be annually inspected by a certified elevator inspector or by a municipality or county under contract with the division pursuant to s. 399.13.”
However, if your lifts and elevators serve no more than two adjacent floors, and have a regular maintenance contract in place, these inspections are not required.
What’s Included in a Maintenance Contract?
While no one can require you to keep a lift or elevator maintenance contract, having one is the best way to keep your elevator running smoothly. At the same time, regularly scheduled maintenance can help keep downtime and your operating costs under control. Among the many services included in your First Coast Elevator maintenance contract are:
- Complete system cleaning, adjustment, and lubrication.
- Checking every system for proper operation.
- Prompt service.
- 24/7 emergency service.
- Verify compliance with all ADA, state, and federal regulations.
- And several others.
