Something very simple and that will take you little time. This way you make sure you avoid future more complex problems.
– Keep clean the areas where the motor is coupled to the chassis (in the case of removable electric scooters). By cleaning that area you avoid gaps and annoying noises.
– Cleaning the wheels of the electric scooter since dirt, threads, hair, etc. usually accumulate in their bearings. Mainly in the front wheels, you should also keep a little lubricated for a correct movement.
Check-up at least once a month
– Since some electric scooters for the disabled have pneumatic wheels, it is advisable to check that they are inflated and with the correct air pressure.
-Check the tread of the tires of your motorized wheelchair or electric scooter for disabilities, if you use it daily and travel a long distance, they are usually subject to greater wear. And wear also usually occurs because they have too much or too little air pressure.
-When driving your electric mobility scooter check that it does not emit strange sounds of which we had previously mentioned.

-If the folding scooter usually makes noise, you can apply lubricant for its correct folding and unfolding.
-Keep the seat covers in good condition to always have good comfort when moving.
-It is essential that we keep our batteries in good condition, we should always try to carry out long charges until the green light on the charger indicates that the charge is complete.

-The connections must always be firm to avoid loss of energy, and keep in mind that climatic conditions (very cold or very hot) sometimes affect the correct operation.
