Preserving Vertical Mobility: The Vital Role of Elevator Maintenance

Updated: May 12


Imagine a high-rise apartment building in Singapore. Residents on the 20th floor need groceries, office workers on the 35th have a meeting, and visitors are looking for a specific unit. In this bustling urban landscape of Singapore, elevators play a critical role in ensuring smooth vertical mobility. In order to keep these essential systems running safely and efficiently, lift maintenance is a must.

BELIFT, beyond being a trusted provider of elevators, is also your partner in ensuring their continued smooth operation. This article sheds light on the importance of a maintenance regime.

Understanding Lift Maintenance

Lift maintenance refers to a variety of tasks to ensure the performance and safety of the lift.

There are two main types of lift maintenance: preventive and corrective. Preventive maintenance is conducted to prevent failures from occurring. Corrective maintenance happens after some kind of failure has occurred.

Preventive maintenance goes beyond the typical "fix it when it breaks" approach. It is a proactive strategy that prioritises identifying and rectifying potential issues before they escalate into major breakdowns. By adopting this preventative approach, you reap several benefits described below.

  • Enhanced Safety Think of preventive maintenance as building a safety net for your home lift. By promptly addressing minor problems like unusual noises or vibrations, you significantly reduce the risk of accidents or malfunctions. This proactive approach ensures the safety of everyone using the lift, preventing minor issues from snowballing into major problems. Ultimately, it fosters trust and confidence, reinforcing the reliability and safety of your home lift system.

  • Reduced Downtime Nobody enjoys being stranded between floors! Regular preventive maintenance helps catch issues early, minimising breakdowns and ensuring a consistently operational lift. This translates to less frustration and keeps your daily routine running smoothly.

  • Extended Lifespan Just like your car, your home lift benefits greatly from regular lift maintenance. By proactively addressing potential issues, you're not just preventing breakdowns, you're also extending the overall lifespan of your lift. This translates to significant cost savings in the long run, as you avoid the need for premature replacements.

  • Regulatory Compliance In Singapore, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) mandates regular lift maintenance to ensure public safety.

By prioritising a preventive maintenance regime, you're investing in the safety, reliability, and longevity of your home lift. It's a smart investment that ensures your home lift remains a smooth and convenient addition to your living space for years to come. Regular lift maintenance is at least two service visits per year for most lifts. By prioritising lift maintenance, you safeguard the well-being of your residents or tenants, ensure regulatory compliance, and extend the life of your elevator system.

The Investment in Smooth Operation: Lift Maintenance Costs

Initially, a lift maintenance regime might seem like a bit of a burden on the wallet, adding to the initial cost of your home lift. Here in Singapore, you can expect preventive maintenance to typically range from $1,000 to $6,000 per year. However, this proactive approach is an investment that truly pays dividends in the long run.

Additionally, a well-maintained lift operates more efficiently, leading to lower energy consumption and reduced electricity bills. Ultimately, prioritising preventive maintenance safeguards your investment, ensures the safety and convenience of your home lift, and even contributes to energy savings, a win-win situation for your finances and the environment.
