Tips For Cleaning & Maintaining Mobility Scooters

Power Mobility scooters require routine upkeep to remain in good working condition. Some general tips on how to clean, inspect and maintain a motorized scooter are provided here.

Important: Before performing any maintenance work on your scooter, be sure to turn the power off and make certain you have disconnected the charger’s power cord.

While these maintenance and power scooter cleaning tips may apply to various models, the features on your particular mobility product may vary. It is always advised to follow the manufacturer’s product manual instructions.

How To Dust & Clean Your Mobility Scooter

Dusting and cleaning will keep your scooter looking good and running efficiently.

  • Dust all exposed parts, using a soft, smooth, dry cloth.
  • Clean with a cloth dampened with liquid detergent or glass cleaner.
  • Wipe down the scooter seat with soft disinfectant wipes.
  • Avoid getting electrical components wet. Gently dust instead.
  • Do not spray water or liquid cleaners directly onto the scooter.
  • Do not use wax, oil or harsh cleansers.
  • When done, wipe the mobility scooter gently until it’s dry.
  • Drape a scooter cover over your vehicle to protect against dust build-up.

How to Inspect and Maintain Your Power Scooter

In between professional inspections, give your scooter regular check-ups.

  • Check tire treads daily for wear. Replace thinning tires.
  • Check the upholstery for areas that may irritate your skin.
  • Check the battery power. If the gauge is in RED, re-charge or replace batteries.
  • Adjust moveable parts (steering tiller, wheels, swivel seat, levers, mirror, etc) to ensure consistent functioning.

Brakes

Most electric mobility scooters come equipped with an inertia system of braking so they will come naturally to a halt when you ease off on the power.
Before you set off on a journey you do however still need to test that they are working. The first thing you need to check is that your scooter isn’t set to freewheel. On most scooters there is a lever around the rear wheel which sets the scooter into freewheel mode. Freewheel mode allows you to move the scooter around easily without power but also means that the scooter won’t be able to stop. As a safety feature most scooters won’t actually let you start when freewheel mode is engaged but it’s worth checking anyway. Once you’ve made sure the scooter is properly set up try your scooter out to make sure it is stopping correctly before setting out on your journey.

The Seat

Most electric mobility scooters on the market will come with some form of detachable seat. Obviously for safety purposes you don’t want the seat to come loose while you are riding it so before setting off we recommend that you give it a firm waggle every time you use it to make sure that it’s properly attached before you take it out and about.

Read the manual

It seems like an easy step that doesn’t deserve to be in a list of maintenance instructions, but you might be surprised at how much you can learn if you take the time to read the manual that came along with your scooter. The proper maintenance schedule is usually spelled out clearly in the manual, and taking the manufacturer’s advice can save you a great deal of time.
