The holidays are quickly approaching, which means you could be hosting parties for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and more in your Maryland or DC home. And if you have a new residential elevator, then this exciting addition could make the holidays go a lot smoother. But there are also a few things to consider when entering the holidays with a new home elevator.
Before your guests arrive, it’s important to schedule your semi-annual maintenance check if you haven’t had one already. It’s important to do this now before the business of the holiday season sets in. It’s best to avoid having to make an emergency service call on the week of Christmas because it could cost much more. Your home elevator will probably be used a lot more when you have more people in your house, so it’s good to make sure that it will run smoothly.
The first thing to do when you welcome guests into your Maryland home is to make sure that each person knows how to operate your elevator. Often user error is the cause of elevator problems, but fortunately, it’s very avoidable. When there are children in the house, you should not allow little ones to play around the elevator or ride it without adult supervision, for their own safety. Lastly, take note of your elevator’s weight capacity limit, and warn your family and friends against crowding in so as not to damage your elevator.
Another way that you can prep your elevator is by protecting the inside of the car. Maryland weather is unpredictable every season, and it can get wet and messy outside in winter. You can add a floor cover to help keep the inside of your car clean and dry to prevent damage. And if you will be hosting pets as well as people, then add covers on the wall as well to prevent scratch damage.
