How to Recondition Used Stairlifts

Many households often face the problem of discarding old and unused stairlifts at home. This is because there
are no more users for the stairlifts and there is a need to for more physical space in the house. Therefore,
the most convenient way out is to sell it to used stairlifts dealers. Most of these dealers will refurnish
the used stairlift before selling them to other home owners. However, if you were to buy direct from former
stairlift home owners, you can get a more attractive and cheaper price. The catch is that you will have to
pay for the stairlift removal service and learn how to recondition used stairlift for use. I will share with
you some of the more important things to learn to recondition old stairlifts until they are as good as new.
Things to note about reconditioning used stairlifts
First, you need the correct set of tools to start the work. Stairlift is an electro-mechanical device that
appears to be simple to the end user but, in fact, it can get quite complicated when you open up the system.
Therefore, you need the right tools to do the right job. Tools such as spanner, wrench and screwdrivers are
necessary to loosen the major parts of the stairlifts. It is advisable not to touch the stairlift circuit
board with your bare hands in case of electrocution. You should always use the tools to test first.
Second, you need to polish the stairlift track and remove any dirt or hair that are commonly found stuck at
the edges. These will impede the movement of the stairlifts as it moves along the track and accumulating a
thick layer of hair will cause the stairlift to jam while moving, posing a danger to the user. After removing
the dirt, you can add some lubricant to the track which helps to smoothen the movement and provide anti rust
protection.
Third, though not necessary, it is advisable to always change a new set of batteries, especially if the old
stairlifts have not changed one before. You can approach the manufacturer to find out the compatible stairlift
battery models and replace accordingly. Old batteries have the tendency of leaking and causing short circuit
to the stairlifts, sometimes even fire.
Lastly, you can open up the stairlift side cover to view the circuit board and clean up the inside of the
stairlifts with a dry cloth. It is better if you have a dust remover that cleans the surface of dust completely
with a swipe.
These are the tips on how to recondition stairlifts and should save you some money from hiring the experts for
a simple job that can be accomplished with some tools and little bit of hands on experience.
