The first thing any person, or company, should be concerned about when having a dumbwaiter, elevator, or escalator installed, is its safety. We hear nightmare stories online and on the news about the dangers of couples getting stranded between floors in a home elevator, and who weren’t found for weeks. This calls for installers to make safety issues their top priority. Naturally, there are other issues, such as cost, size, number of floors to be serviced, and where a particular lift will be located.
Purposes of Lifts
When a homeowner calls a company to find out about dumbwaiter installation services, it’s usually about saving time, and making their job easier. There’s a huge difference between placing laundry, groceries, cleaning products, baskets or boxes in a dumbwaiter and simply pushing a button to get these heavy weights up several floors, verses carrying them. Consider how many trips one person would have to make to get them to where they need to be.
Elevators and Escalators
Owners of hotels, office buildings and malls order their elevators and escalators from companies who’re known for manufacturing and installing the safest lifts. Hundreds of mall patrons a day simply take these public lifts for granted, and never think a negative thought about riding them. People are very rarely stuck in modern public elevators for hours on end because safety issues have been addressed.
Popularity of Dumbwaiters and Other Lifts
Because people want to remain in their homes even when they can no longer climb the stairs, they call companies that specialize in home elevators. An associate will come to the home to talk about size and price, plus style and safety issues. They’ll also complete a written estimate for the client.
Maintenance on Older Elevators and Dumbwaiters
A homeowner may want to upgrade the elevator or dumbwaiter that’s already in the home, or have it regularly maintained. Calling a company that’s well known for its knowledge in the advanced technology of lift systems, and one with a good customer rating, will make all the difference to home clients. When a dumbwaiter or elevator is needed in the home or business, customers should take the time to look for a company with extremely specialized experience in the lift industry.
