Is this the day you must do garage door repair? Skim through our tips for more efficient work and to avoid injuries.
Partially opened garage door
Never leave your garage door partially opened. Either fully close or fully open it. Partially opened doors can be activated automatically and can come in contact with an object underneath. This can cause a serious accident to you or your family. It can also damage your vehicles or the door itself.
Learn how to avoid accidents
It's easy to avoid accidents but you must follow certain rules. Our experts suggest frequent maintenance and weekly checking of the sensors. Don't trust kids alone in the garage and keep remote controls away from their reach. Don't stand under the door and avoid engaging in garage door repairs alone. Make sure damages are fixed as soon as possible and worn parts are replaced.
Check the door’s Weather Strips
These weather strips are the primary reason why the door is able to fight the effects of changing conditions of the weather. Extreme conditions can cause wear and tear to the components of your garage door. However, by making sure that the weather strips function accordingly, your door is safe. If not, replace the strips right away.
How to check sensors each month
Contemporary garage door openers have many sensors but according to the experience of our specialists, most of them have a decorative purpose. It is important to test the reverse mechanism each month by placing an obstacle under the closing door. You must also dust them and make sure they are facing one another and their wires are connected properly.
Cleaning the garage door
If you haven't washed your garage doors for years, you will need something more than water and sponges. You will need detergents and our experts would like to draw your attention to the quality of soaps you would use. You need to make sure they are mild and suitable for the material. It will also be a chance to search for rust signs or mold.
