You can always find things to spend money on but few offer as much return for your money as some of these treadmill accessories. The home repair kit will save you money in the near term by allowing you to perform some basic repairs yourself while the home cleaning kit will help prevent problems that will require future repairs. Taking adequate care of your treadmill and the mechanical parts inside will greatly improve the useful life of your fitness machine. Supporting it with a cheap treadmill mat is enough to ensure that the body of the treadmill isn’t worn down by the shock reverberated off the floor.
A home repair kit will allow you to perform simple repairs yourself which means fewer trips to the repair shop. This in turn will save you a lot of money. Obviously this doesn’t mean that there wouldn’t be more serious problems which will require a professional to repair. But as a statistical rule small problems will crop up far more frequently than major problems making a home repair kit a very handy thing to have.
Another handy kit to keep around is the home cleaning kit. This typically includes the cleaning solution, an application wand as well as instructions on how to perform basic cleaning and how often your treadmill should be cleaned. This helps prevent accumulation of dust and other things that can clog the moving parts causing problems.
Keeping your motor lubricated is very important to the longevity of your treadmill. Motor burn outs are the most common motor problems which can usually be avoided by protecting it with adequate lubrication.
The good treadmill mat will protect your exercise equipment in many ways. First, it minimizes noise by absorbing the vibration caused by a treadmill in use. Second, by absorbing the shock it is protecting your floor as well as the treadmill from damage. Third, any slippage could potentially scratch your floors if they are hardwood. Fourth, if you have carpet it prevents carpet fibers from entering the mechanical parts and damaging the insides of the treadmill.
