4 Tips for Maintaining Your Treadmill, Arnold, Missouri

If you don’t have time to go to the gym several times a week, purchasing a treadmill for your home is a sound investment. However, like most other mechanical belongings, they require regular maintenance to continue working properly. Here are some tips for looking after your equipment.

How to Take Care of a Treadmill

1. Clean It Regularly

After you get done using your equipment, wipe it down with a damp cloth and then dry it. If you don’t, moisture from sweat can accumulate on the machine over time and result in bacterial growth and rusting. Also, vacuum underneath at least once a week to keep dirt or dust from getting in the belt.

2. Lubricate Mechanical Elements

Treadmills have many moving parts, so lubricate them every so often. Otherwise, continual use with lack of maintenance may damage some parts prematurely. Check your owner’s manual to find out how often to lubricate the components and which product to use.

Every time you use the device, keep an eye out for potential issues like excessive noise or a slipping belt. If you notice any problems, have a fitness equipment professional inspect it as soon as possible.

4. Check the Belt for Wear & Tear

Belts on all treadmills wear out eventually. That’s why you should touch the belt’s underside every few months to see if it feels rough. If it does, it may be time to replace it.
