In every industry, it is important to ensure that you supply technology and machinery with regular and high-quality maintenance in order to ensure that it is in full working condition. Otherwise you may find that your trusty dumbwaiter breaks down at the worst possible moment! With timely inspections however, any issues with a dumbwaiter are often spotted before it has chance to pose a serious threat to a working day and leave you with a hefty repair bill.

Here is everything you need to know about dumbwaiter maintenance…

Why do you need maintenance?

A dumbwaiter is regularly put to use in a busy working environment, which means that a faulty piece of equipment or a breakdown cannot be afforded otherwise it will mess up the entire workday. After all, a dumbwaiter can do hundreds of journeys in a restaurant, which causes wear and tear over time. By providing regular maintenance to the machinery, a lift engineer will be able to thoroughly check the components and ensure that it is good shape. If there are any issues, it then provides you with enough time to rectify the problem rather than it occurring in the middle of a busy shift!

The damage

A dumbwaiter can suffer damage in a range of different ways and wear and tear can present itself in many forms. For example, stiff doors are a common issue that are touched upon during a servicing and if you don’t take the time to get them fixed, you could end up having your dumbwaiter rendered unsuitable for use. In addition to this, dirt and grime can build up if a dumbwaiter is not regularly cleaned, which is why it is important to ensure that your dumbwaiter is provided care and attention. After all, a build up for grime can be the cause of a breakdown one day.

Luckily most of the maintenance needs with a dumbwaiter can be fixed by yourself without the need for a call out. However, it is vital that you consult the assistance of a professional lift engineer in order to carry out any and all maintenance and serving checks. After all, they are experienced and know exactly what they are looking for and more often than not they tend to stop something small that was missed.
