A Simple Guide to Cleaning and Maintaining Your Stairlift

Stairlifts are designed to make moving around your home much easier. They soon become part of your home’s furniture and a step in your everyday routine.

Just like with your home’s sofas and chairs, your stairlift will need to be cleaned regularly to remain in the best condition possible.

Here is a simple guide to cleaning and maintaining your stairlift.


As you are most likely using your stairlift every day, just like other furniture in your home, you should be routinely wiping down the stairlift (track and seat) to prevent a build-up of dust.

To keep your stairlift in the best condition possible, try to incorporate it into your weekly cleaning routine (or every other week when life gets too busy!)

Cleaning is the easiest step you can take to extend the life of your stairlift.

How to clean your stairlift

While your cleaning routine might involve cleaning sprays and solutions, it is best to avoid using these on your stairlifts as they can be too abrasive.

Instead, simply use a cloth and wipe down the stairlift track and seat. Remember that water and electronics don’t mix so a few wipes with a dry cloth will be sufficient.

Clearing objects from the staircase and vacuuming the general surrounding staircase area also keep your stairlift running efficiently with no obstructions, assuring a smooth ride every time.


no matter how superior or stable a product is, there is inevitably going to be some wear and tear that comes with everyday use. For this reason, at Alfix, we provide full aftersales maintenance and support, providing service, breakdowns, and even loan stairlifts.

This is key to preserving the quality of your stairlift and ensuring that it stays in perfect condition for years to come.
