Common Issues with Lift Chairs and How to Solve Them

Category: Lift Chairs
February 5, 2019

Lift chairs can change the way your loved one relaxes if they struggle with getting to the standing position. However, like all things, your new lift chair may run into some problems down the line. Such is the nature of technology. Here are some of the most common maintenance items that you may run into with your lift chair and what you can do about them. Let’s take a look.

How is the Fabric Looking?

When you invest in a lift chair initially, you will have a wide variety of options to choose from with tons of different opportunities for customization. Some chairs come with a plush velvet fabric, some are leather, and some offer anti-microbial materials. No matter which type of fabric you choose, you will need to make sure that you maintain it well to protect your investment for as long as possible. Pay special attention to what the manufacturer advises in terms of ongoing maintenance to make sure that you don’t damage the chair in an attempt to cleanse it.

Are the Mechanisms Operating as They Should?

Without electrical mechanisms, a lift chair would just be a chair. Though the chair might still function as seating when the mechanisms aren’t working, you certainly won’t be getting your money’s worth. So, if you notice something is amiss with your lift chair’s electrical components, then it’s time to call it in. For better or worse, lift chairs are complex machines that require the attention of a professional when they break down. Thankfully, we at Freedom Mobility offer repair services for the equipment that we sell. Contact us for more information on how we can serve your needs with lift chair repair.

Is the Lift Chair as Comfortable as You Hoped?

Have you ever purchased a pair of shoes that was very comfortable at the store but turned out to be awful after you wore them around town for the first time? Sometimes the things we purchase aren’t always what we expect, and what may be comfortable for a few minutes, may not be comfortable after a few hours. Thankfully, there are many ways to make your lift chair more comfortable down the line. If your loved one is not as comfortable as they thought they would be, contact us, and we will be happy to help you find a solution.
