Top 5 Handle Repairs for Preventative Maintenance

March 14, 2024 - Posted By Maryna Araujo

Well-functioning handles are essential for smooth operations and safety in any commercial setting. Wear and tear can lead to common handling issues that affect functionality and aesthetics. To prevent disruptions and maintain a professional environment, it's crucial to stay vigilant about these issues through preventative maintenance and regular site inspections.

Here are the top five handle repairs that property managers should keep an eye on:

1. Loose Handles: Over time, handles can become loose due to frequent use or improper installation, compromising their effectiveness and security.

2. Broken Hinges: Hinges play a critical role in door functionality. Broken or damaged hinges can lead to misalignment, difficulty opening or closing doors, and security risks.

3. Worn-Out Grips: Handles with worn-out or damaged grips not only detract from the appearance of your space but also pose safety hazards, especially in high-traffic areas.

4. Stiff Mechanisms: Handles that are difficult to operate may indicate underlying issues with internal mechanisms or lack of lubrication, affecting user experience and potentially leading to damage.

5. Rust and Corrosion: Exposure to moisture and environmental factors can cause handles to rust or corrode over time, compromising their structural integrity and aesthetics.
