Having a Clean Elevator Is More Important Than You Think

Regularly cleaning your elevator may not seem like a top priority for your business or property but keeping this area clean is just as important as other areas of your location. In addition to keeping it looking clean, routine cleaning is important for the operation, safety, and efficiency of your elevator.

Not Just Passenger Perception

Commercial elevators come into contact with a lot of different feet and hands, including the dirt, debris, and germs they carry on board with them. But an elevator is often one of the first things a potential tenant or customer comes into contact with when entering your property. It can leave a lasting impression on those people, so it is important that it appears clean, safe, and germ free so it doesn’t present itself poorly to passengers. However, keeping your elevator is about more than just keeping up appearances.

In addition to the perception the elevator may give about your complex or business, having a clean elevator can eliminate certain safety and health issues. Small enclosed spaces can lead to the spread of unwanted, harmful germs and bacterial. Keeping your elevator clean is critical for the health and safety of your passengers. Doors, walls, panels, floors, and buttons should all be cleaned regularly. Even the mirrors, ceiling, and light fixtures should be cleaned regularly. These small things may not appear to get a lot of use but keeping them sparkling and clean is not just safe for the passengers but gives off a good impression too.

Keep Elevators Operating Smoothly

Of course, keeping appearances good is important, but cleaning your elevator is also important for routine maintenance. The pit should be cleaned often to prevent trash and debris from interfering with the mechanisms of your elevator. This will also lessen the chances of a pest infestation of your property. Dirt and grease should be removed from thresholds, baseplates, and tracks to keep them running smoothly. Without regular cleaning, built up grime could interfere with the operation of elevators doors and other mechanical aspects which could lead to potential safety issues and REAC inspection violations.
