Even garage doors of the highest quality will eventually suffer from some type of a malfunction. There is a way, however, to minimize the potential for accidents, and that way is called – regular maintenance.
Your Springs Need Some Love
Garage door springs are some of the most important parts of any automated door system. Because they are under constant stress, they are more susceptible to wear and tear damage than any other part. Lubrication maintenance is an excellent way to ensure their operation and working condition remain smooth and optimal. If you have steel rollers, they could also do with some proper lubrication.
Checking The Condition of The Tracks
By closely inspecting every part of your system on a regular basis, you'll be able to catch minor issues before they develop into more serious problems. The tracks are incredibly important, as the rollers and cables use them to safely move your door. If the tracks become dirty or blocked by debris, or if they are bent at some sections, the door could get stuck, or worse, it could collapse. A lot of customers call us to ask for help after their door got off track. You can avoid this scenario by having our technicians routinely examine the condition of these crucial components. We'll repair or replace the tracks as necessary.
Testing The Safety Sensors
Your garage door opener uses a pair of photo-electric "eyes" in order to prevent a lot of accidents. These safety sensors detect obstacles that are blocking the door's path and force the system to reverse. If these sensors become misaligned, however, your safety is compromised. Our technicians will test the performance of your safety sensors upon every visit, and we'll carefully realign these delicate components for you if they aren't positioned correctly. We'll also make sure their lenses are clean and intact.
