Top 3 Maintenance Tips for Stainless Steel Casters, Manhattan, New York

Stainless steel casters are used by those who move equipment, furniture, and other heavy materials daily. While well-made casters are designed to last for many years, some maintenance is required to ensure they function smoothly and efficiently. To keep your casters in good shape and prolong their life, follow these simple maintenance tips.

How to Take Care of Stainless Steel Casters

1. Keep Them Lubricated

Steel casters that aren’t properly lubricated will wear out quickly and lose mobility. Typically, caster wheels and their fittings should be lubricated every six months, so make sure you set up a schedule and stick to it. Lubricate once a month if your casters are often exposed to moisture or puddles, since that puts it at risk for corrosion.

2. Check the Fasteners 

Stainless Steel CastersThe wheel frames and fasteners on your stainless steel casters keep the wheels in line. They’re subject to wear and tear, so examine them once a month and make sure their hardware is intact. To do this, experts recommend turning the equipment on its side, then inspecting the fasteners for loose screws, nuts, and bolts, as well as bent or worn fittings. When you spot defective pieces early and fix or replace them as issues arise, the caster itself will last much longer.

3. Inspect the Wheels

Once you’ve checked the fasteners, examine the wheels of your casters. Do they have irregular flat spots? Are the rubber tires flattened, worn, or damaged? These seemingly small defects can cause added wear and tear over time, so get those replaced to prolong the life of your unit.
