A lift chair is a great investment. They give people with limited mobility a place to sit back and relax. They also give a place for pregnant and expectant mothers somewhere to take a load off. The truth is, a lift chair is a great investment for a wide range of people. But to protect your investment, you must maintain it. If you have a Golden Technologies lift chair or are thinking about getting one, here’s how you can care for it.
Test Backup Batteries
While lift chairs from Golden Technologies come with strong reliable batteries, it doesn’t hurt to test them from time to time. This is especially true when you’ve had your Golden Technologies lift chair for a while. Most Golden Technologies lift chairs come with backup batteries to ensure that no one will be stranded during a power outage. Test these batteries monthly by unplugging the chair and operating it. Replace these batteries as needed.
Keep the Lift Chair Clean
Keeping your Golden Technologies lift chair clean is important to keep it looking and operating at its best. Every lift chair will have specific instructions in the owner’s manual on how to clean it. But as a general rule of thumb, it’s suggested that you clean up spills quickly. Even stain-resistant lift chairs from Golden Technologies can stain if a spilled liquid sits for too long. Be sure to unplug your lift chair before cleaning, and make sure it’s completely dry before you plug it back in.
Keep Children and Pets Off the Lift Chair
Children may love playing on your Golden Technologies lift chair, but they should learn that it’s not a toy. If they push all the buttons at once or rough house on the chair, it can damage it, and you’ll be stuck having to pay for the repairs or replacing it. For that reason, it’s recommended that you keep small children off the lift chair.
The same applies to pets. Pets may accidentally destroy the lift chair, especially cats. They may also end up hiding underneath your lift chair. For that reason, try to keep them away from your Golden Technologies lift chair. If your pet likes napping underneath your lift chair, always silence the TV, radio, or other noises before operating the lift chair so that you don’t accidentally injure them.
Keep up with Routine Maintenance
Before you perform any maintenance or cleaning on your Golden Technologies lift chair, be sure to unplug it and remove the backup batteries first. Afterward, wipe down or vacuum the motor, hand control, and cord to prevent dust buildup. This process is easier when the chair is positioned upright. Do this once a month. If you see any tears, frayed electrical cords, or anything that indicates a problem, contact a professional repair tech to get it repaired.
