The tips we can offer you will help you make sure that your garage door is able to achieve the full breadth of its potential. Take a look at our suggestions below to learn how to take better care of your overhead door.
Listen for strange or peculiar noises
Whenever you open or close your garage door, pay particular attention to the sounds it makes. A strange or peculiar noise can indicate a worn, loose, or misaligned component that needs to be inspected by a trained specialist. Our specialists are completely familiar with all aspects of the operation of your garage door and can make the proper adjustments or repairs safely to assure its continued smooth operation.
Visually inspect your garage door at least once a month
It's an excellent idea to visually inspect your garage door at least once each month for signs of unusual wear or damage. Check the springs, cables, rollers and pulleys for any signs of wear, and leave removal or adjustment of these parts to a specially trained technician. Our team is familiar with the high tension these parts are under and know the precautions required when they are removed or adjusted.
Keep your garage door remote control out of the reach of children
The remote control transmitter to your garage door should always be kept securely out of the reach of children who might be playing nearby. Children are used to playing with TV remote controls and can easily be tempted to play with the remote for your garage door opener, creating a potentially hazardous and dangerous situation. Keep the remote hidden, and make sure the wall clicker is positioned at least five feet above ground, so young children are never tempted to play with it.
