Ensure Ease of Access over Stairs with Stairlift Installation

If you or a loved one has trouble navigating a staircase in your home due to aging or physical frailty, then a stairlift could be a great investment. This device is designed to take people up and down over a flight of straight or curved stairs, indoors or out. Only experienced, certified technicians can ensure efficient stairlift installation.

Installation of Stairlifts — Benefits

· Seniors and people with physical disabilities can navigate the stairs independently and safely. This will allow them to stay in the home they love and remain independent in an emotionally supportive environment.

· With a stairlift, you can avoid risks of slips and fall on the stairs. By decreasing the potential danger of falling down the stairs, it saves you from what could be debilitating injury.

· Whether you staircase is straight or curved, indoors or outdoors, leading brands offer durable, customized options.

· Stairlifts help you carry things that you can hold on your lap.

Preparation before Installation

You’ll need to make some preparations before installing your stairlift:

· First, talk to your dealer and technician about the type of lift that will suit your staircase and how it is going to be fitted. Once you have the basic details, you can start to think about preparing the space for the installation.

· Before the installation, you should clear all large and bulky items out of the path. The technicians would be carrying heavy equipment in and out, so make sure that rugs are not slipping around the floor. Put your pets somewhere safely so that they stay out of the way.

· During the installation, the technicians will need to drill holes into the wall and staircase which may cause dust. The best way to deal with this problem is to cover your furniture with old blankets.

· It’s a good idea to have telephones for both up and downstairs, so that you can call for help in an emergency situation. Though modern stairlifts are designed to be surge proof and to operate even during power cuts, it’s better to take some extra precautions.

· Once the installation is complete, you will be instructed on how to use it. These machines are a great choice for people with accessibility issues and help them stay safe and mobile in their houses.
