Importance Of Cleaning Elevator Pits For Safe Operation
Cleaning elevator pits should be a priority in building maintenance, especially at industrial sites. Elevator pits are hazardous areas, and simply put, natural collectors of dust and debris. As such cleaning elevator pits forms priority for safety purposes.
If the elevator pits are not cleaned properly every three to six months, fire risks increase. The dust build-up combined with the friction of equipment is a tremendous fire risk. All that is needed is enough friction build-up, one spark and the debris can catch fire.
Cleaning elevator pits should be done professionally. Dust and debris build-up will also interfere with equipment operation and can create situations where elevator maintenance must be done on a more regular basis simply because dust particles have caused problems with the working of elevator parts.
Apart from the fact that garbage must be removed when cleaning elevator pits, grease must be removed from all the rails and the counterweight. Grease build-up is just as dangerous as dust build-up. Oil often collects under the counterweight cage and must be removed for safety purposes. The shaft door must be wiped and the pits sanitized. Another reason for cleaning elevator pits is water collection in the pit areas. The pit must be kept dry at all times to ensure longevity of the equipment.
