Elevator Service Seattle

Elevator Maintenance / Service

Elevators are one of the most important technological inventions in human history. Without them, we wouldn’t have the towering skyscrapers and high rises that are located all over Seattle. Elevators are the workhorses of multi story buildings and because they are easy to use and bring immediate convenience to our daily lives, we don’t really pay attention to them until something goes wrong. Imagine the inconvenience you’d have to face if the elevator at home or your place of work stopped working. How many flights of stairs would you have to trek up and down in the absence of a working elevator? Because we rely on them so much, it is important to make sure that elevators are properly maintained and serviced. 

Commercial elevators in Washington state are required to have a maintenance control plan (MCP). Maintenance control plans are created to ensure that each elevator is regularly and correctly maintained throughout its lifespan. It is similar to car maintenance in that there are certain milestones and checkpoints that it is recommended for an elevator to be serviced. These checkpoints are put in place to make sure that the elevator is safe to use. Without the MCP, it would be hard to put your trust in an elevator and rely on it to provide worry free transportation. Olympic Elevator specializes in the maintenance and repair of all types of elevators, whether they are residential or commercial in the Seattle area. Our staff of highly trained and experienced technicians are the experts to trust when it comes to making sure that the tasks and category one annual testing included in the MCP are properly completed as required by code.

Not only does regular maintenance keep elevators safe to use, but it also can help protect against costly repairs. Regularly scheduled maintenance and services means that experienced and trained technicians will constantly have eyes on the elevator and can make the necessary repairs or needed adjustments before the elevator breaks down. Preventative maintenance and repairs might be expensive, but it’ll be less expensive than having to make an emergency repair and expediting shipping for out of stock parts. 

Elevators are complex machines, and there are so many different and intricate parts that go into running a functioning elevator. Preventative and regularly scheduled maintenance provided by certified elevator technicians is the only way to keep elevators running smoothly.

Why is a good preventive maintenance plan important?

  • It extends the life of the elevator equipment and protects the major investment the building has made in this equipment.
  • Proper preventive maintenance helps eliminate costly service callbacks.
  • Our proactive approach directs attention to potential problem areas before more extensive and expensive repairs become necessary.

Five Year Elevator Load Tests

What is a Five-Year Elevator Load Test?
The Five-Year Elevator Load Test is required by Washington state elevator codes in order to ensure that your elevator can lift its maximum rated load at its rated speed and also stop the elevator in the down direction if that rated speed is exceeded. These tests also help ensure the integrity of the elevator system. Washington State’s Department of Labor & Industrial as well as the City of Seattle requires that Five Year Elevator Load Tests be conducted to confirm proper elevator performance and ensure the public safety. Not having this test performed in a timely manner could result in your elevator being red-tagged and taken out of service by your elevator inspector.

Safety while using an elevator is always of the utmost importance and there are so many certifications and tests that an elevator needs to accrue and pass that it can be difficult to keep straight. As a business owner, you don’t have time to personally check the oil level for each elevator and make sure the cable lines are well lubricated. That’s why you should and can turn to professional elevator companies to maintain your property’s elevators. Olympic Elevator techs will top off the fluids in your elevator, maintain the condition of the cables, and conduct the Five Year Elevator Load test for you in a timely manner.
