If you have ever used the stairs instead of the elevators for getting up or down more than a couple flights, you have a pretty good idea how convenient an elevator can be. It is one thing for the elevators to fail and have it be a minor inconvenience. It is quite another if you are carrying heavy packages, have children in tow, or are physically incapable of using stairs. If you own a high-rise building, it is critical to have reliable elevators and that means having them built right to begin with and keeping up with elevator maintenance. Here are a few reasons why this is important:

  • Happier tenants- If you have a high-rise apartment building, hotel, or office building, you know that you need happy tenants if you are to meet your income projections. People and businesses will be pleased when they can have confidence the elevators will work every day when they need them.

  • Avoid complaints- It is not unusual for a building owner to run into trouble and face complaints if the elevators fail, especially if it is found that necessary maintenance has been neglected.
  • Your own convenience- You and your staff will find daily tasks to be easiest when you have reliable elevators. Staying productive by being able to move between different work areas on separate floors helps your company stay profitable.
  • Save time and money- Keeping up with maintenance also reduces downtime and larger repair costs.
