At the end of each of our maintenance articles, we always advertise a Free Preventive Maintenance Program. And today we’d like to take some time to tell you more in depth about what we do to make sure your Scican Statim 5000 Classic Autoclave service needs are satisfied.

How Was That All Related?
All of this was related to the thought process of our Free Preventative Maintenance Program. While those instructions were not word-for-word, that basic summary, the article we’ve written on this subject, and the parts and materials we sell should give you a bit of insight. We have the know-how on how it should work, a variety of parts for selection should yours not work, and our free tech support to help you schedule, order parts if needed, and time your maintenance so that your autoclave CAN work.
About Our Free Preventative Maintenance Program
Whether you’re a returning customer or new to our website, our Free Autoclave Technical Support and Free Preventative Maintenance Program is for anyone and everyone. Our job is to make sure that when it comes to buying and subsequently taking care of your new autoclave, you have all the help you need at no extra cost.
When you call our support number, we’re ready to help you anywhere and anytime. We can answer any questions you have about your autoclave or any parts you might need. And we can even help you install, troubleshoot and repair your autoclave. And when you sign up for our free maintenance program online or on the phone, we contact you back within one business day to set up your maintenance schedule.
We start by taking inventory of your autoclaves on the initial call. After that’s determined, we’ll help you set a schedule of your own and figure out when you want to start the program. And then once the schedule has been determined, we’ll call you and remind you what autoclave maintenance and parts are due when they’re due.
Even after everything is set up, and your parts have shipped for free, our services don’t end there. Once your new parts or machine arrive, you can call our support number or use one of our many articles and/or videos in our website library. So whether or not you feel like picking up the phone, we’re with you every step of the way.
A huge part of any practice is ensuring that all equipment is running safely and efficiently. If it’s not working properly you can have a sudden failure or not get equipment properly sterilized. With different manufacturers come different autoclaves, which means different maintenance methods. Maintenance scheduling and instructions can be daunting. Add more than one machine and that task becomes even more complex. But that’s why we’re here to help at no cost anytime you need. The purpose of our Free Scican Preventive Maintenance Program is to remove the stress and worry of what maintenance is due for which machine, and when it’s time for it to be done.
We’ll be there to remind you when things need cleaning or replacing. And you’ve got 24/7 access to our Library of Videos and articles about anything you may need help with. With all these extras you can focus on your practice and patients instead of the equipment. So you can sit back and relax until you hear from us again!
