Learning About Medical Equipment and Supplies

Hello, my name is Sydney Belaqua. Welcome to my website about medical equipment and supplies. When my mom had her stomach removed last year, the living room became a storage lock for medical equipment and supplies. These items helped my mom make a swift recovery without too much discomfort or delay. Throughout this experience, I set out to learn about how the medical equipment and supplies work and help my loved one heal. I created this site to share this knowledge with other people in a similar situation. Please feel free to visit my site anytime you want to learn more.

Helpful Tips For Keeping Your Mobility Scooter Clean

by Luke Gregory

Keeping your mobility scooter clean is an important part of keeping the scooter in good condition. Dust and dirt aren't just unsightly, but excess dirt can alter the performance of your scooter. Learn some practical steps you can take to keep your scooter as clean as possible.

Smart Use

Always try to be a smart user. Being a smart user involves looking at the ground where you plan to travel before you move your scooter. For example, if the grass is damp, but there is a sidewalk nearby, take the sidewalk instead. While the grass might offer a shorter route, you will undoubtedly get mud on the side of the scooter. Whenever you can avoid a mess, do your best to do so. 


Make sure you dust your scooter regularly. You never want to allow excessive amounts of dust to collect around the scooter's motor. Dust can even prevent the motor from starting. To dust the scooter, use a soft, clean cloth. If you have mobility concerns that stop you from bending over, you can use a dust stick instead. Keep in mind, even if you don't use your scooter often, regular dusting is still helpful, as dust can collect on the scooter even when it's in your home. 


Only use approved cleaners for your scooter. You do not need to use heavy duty cleaners on the scooter. A liquid detergent mixed with water is all you need to clean the equipment. Abrasive cleaners can damage the scooter's paint and make it appear dull. You can use a disinfectant wipe to clean the seat surface; just make sure it does not contain bleach, or it may damage the seat fabric. You should also avoid waxes and oils. The paint on the scooter will shine on its own when clean. 


Whenever you clean your mobility scooter, ensure you always thoroughly dry the scooter before you store it away. Even a small amount of moisture left behind on the scooter can open the door to rust or mildew growth around the upholstered areas of the scooter. Use a clean drying cloth to wipe down the scooter when you're done with the cleaning process. If you operate the scooter in a wet area, make sure you dry it before storage in this instance as well. 

Take the appropriate steps to keep mobility scooters clean to improve their function and protect their lifespan.
