Although some accidents and malfunctions can be unavoidable for a variety of factors that are beyond your control, a lot of potential problems can be prevented by making sure your automatic garage door system is properly maintained.
Taking Care of The Springs
Your garage door springs are incredibly important, as they support the weight of the door panels and allow you – or your opener – to open and close the door without overexerting. If their condition starts to worsen, they can end up breaking unexpectedly, which will be an extremely dangerous scenario. Our experts can routinely examine them for wear and tear damage, lubricate them to ensure their smoothness and efficiency, adjust them to make sure the door is properly balances, and perform the spring replacement without compromising your safety.
Tracks Must Be Inspected Regularly
Your garage door tracks must be in a great condition in order to ensure the smooth movement of your door. If they become bent, or if they accumulate dirt or debris, your rollers could end up getting stuck and the door could get off track. During our maintenance appointments, our technicians will closely examine the condition of these components, and if your tracks need repairs will perform the procedure on the spot, effectively preventing potentially dangerous scenarios.
Checking the Sensors
One of the most important things we do during our maintenance appointments is test out the opener's photo-electric eyes. These sensors are supposed to detect an obstacle that's blocking the path of your door, so making sure they are aligned correctly is crucial. Since these are delicate components, an expert's touch is required to realign them. Our technicians can do that, as well as check the condition of their lenses and replace them if necessary.
