Escalator and Elevator Maintenance Specification

Most elevator service companies provide plans to fit nearly all budgets – find the one that works best for your buildings. Elevators are the epicenter of modern buildings; their maintenance is critical to building management, ensuring smooth building operations and offering reliability for tenants/occupants.

Plans and Contracts Inspection agreements and inclusive contracts are the two most common types of service programs. A basic plan typically covers an inspection and report of necessary repairs. Some include lubrication of system parts.

An on-demand contract establishes a more substantial connection with the service company. With this kind of contract, labor rates are usually predetermined, but not included in the contract fee. Parts are extra as well.

Full-service maintenance plans include parts, labor, and preventive maintenance. If the building’s function and equipment dictate a full-service maintenance plan, routine visits are scheduled. Specifications may include how frequently a technician will be on-site to perform maintenance and what exactly will be done. This involves documentation in elevator-equipment rooms and in logbooks on every controller.

All-inclusive contracts are the most expensive. Charging a set monthly fee, the service company bears the risk that an elevator may need significant repair. These are the few lift maintenance service options to choose from.
