The Acorn Stairlift FAQ of the Week

How Do I Clean My Acorn Stairlift?

Acorn stairlifts are the most durable, dependable, and incomparable products on the market.

That being said, it’s no surprise that no matter how superior or stable a product is, you must know how to properly care for it in order to maintain its high quality.

One of the ways that you can maintain the unbeatable stairlift of your stairlift is by knowing how to properly clean it.

Here is how you should be cleaning your stairlift so that both you and your lift will remain up and running and in good health for many years to come.

How to Properly Clean all the Parts of your Stairlift

The Stairlift’s Rail

Acorn Stairlifts recommends that you run a dry cloth along your stairlift’s rail on a weekly basis to clean out any debris that could interfere with the flawless operation of your stairlift.

While you may use simple household polish on the stairlift’s rail, under no circumstance should you attempt to clean with a damp cloth or abrasive.

The Stairlift’s Steel-toothed Rack

Acorn Stairlifts also recommends that you vacuum out the steel-toothed rack that is mounted onto the rail itself regularly.

The Stairlift’s Surrounding Area

Clearing objects from the staircase and vacuuming the general surrounding staircase area also keeps your stairlift running efficiently with no obstructions, assuring a smooth ride every time.

What Will Happen if I Don’t Clean My Stairlift?

Failure to clean out the rail and steel-toothed rack could lead to a buildup of dust on the internal rollers of the lift, which hinders the overall functionality of your stairlift.

Furthermore, using materials not suited for cleaning the stairlift can damage the stairlift, also ultimately hindering your stairlift’s functionality.

In other words, much like anything else in life, failing to take proper care of your Acorn stairlift can damage or diminish the quality of the product, preventing you from experiencing the freedom, mobility, and independence that Acorn Stairlifts knows you deserve.
