A pram is an essential attribute of any family that has recently had a new addition. The baby’s vehicle needs constant care, so it is necessary to follow a number of rules during the operation and storage of the stroller so that it serves you faithfully, and maybe it is inherited.
Careful care of the stroller and its proper storage will help you keep the appearance of the stroller at the proper level. It is pleasant and not ashamed to walk with a neat clean stroller, but it is much more important that the serviceability of all the mechanisms of the stroller is a guarantee of the safety and health of your baby.
A few rules for caring for a baby stroller:
1. Each time before using the stroller, check:
- Proper functioning of all locks and frame folding mechanisms.
Serviceability of all rivets, screws and nuts.
Serviceability and absence of cracks on the plastic parts of the stroller.
Condition of the wheel nuts.
The strength of the fasteners and buttons on the textile elements of the stroller.
Correction of the brakes.
2. As it becomes dirty, be sure to clean the wheels and other running parts of the stroller from adhering dirt, lubricate them with machine oil. Wheel axles, axle boxes and bearings should be lubricated every 3 months. Don’t forget to clean them before lubricating. Check tire pressure regularly to make sure they are well inflated. Recommended tire pressure should not exceed 1 bar. Periodically remove the wheels from the chassis and clean the sand and dirt from the inside of the wheel axle.
3. At least once a week, wipe all the plastic and metal parts of the stroller with a cloth and warm soapy water (more often if you walk with the stroller every day and the street is damp and dirty). Be sure to use a rain cover when walking in the rain and snow to protect your baby and your stroller from excess moisture.
4. Carefully study the recommendations from the manufacturer for the care of the fabric elements of the stroller. Often textiles from strollers can be washed at a temperature not exceeding 30 degrees. When washing, do not use products containing bleach, bleach, ammonia or alcohol. Otherwise, you run the risk of irrevocably damaging the finish of your stroller.
5. In many strollers, you can unfasten the cover for the legs and the seat itself in the stroller version. Check them regularly for cleanliness and wash them when they get dirty. To keep the shape and color of the product, it should be washed at a temperature of 30–40 degrees.
