Regular maintenance will ensure your garage door and door opener stay in optimal working condition for several years. The most convenient, affordable and effective way to make sure your equipment is functioning properly is to call Garland Garage Door Repair for a safety check and routine maintenance. Most households use the garage door as the primary access to the home, which means the occupants may activate the opener several times in a single day. In fact, industry experts estimate that users open and close the garage door more than 1,500 times per year. With that kind of use, various components are bound to wear out or even break. The first thing our technicians will do during any routine maintenance call is carefully inspect every part for excessive wear. This includes checking the drums, pulleys, rollers, door panels, springs, weather seal and more. They will also tighten all hinges, mounts, bolts and brackets to preserve the integrity of the system.

Proper lubrication is important

Proper lubrication makes it possible for parts to move freely without friction, which can cause metal fatigue and damage. Our technicians know what type of lubricant to use on the hinges, springs, steel rollers, roller stems and bearings. They also know how much is enough because using too much lubricant can attract dirt and clog the operating mechanism. This increases strain on the components and can cause premature failure.

Qualified specialists

In addition to servicing the door, our qualified specialists will inspect the door opener. If the opener is showing signs of resistance when it is in operation, they will lubricate the rear sprocket, front idler sprocket and chain, if applicable. After making sure all parts are moving freely, they will make any adjustments as necessary to the safety sensor responsible for detecting any obstructions in the door's path. Additional tasks include verifying the door is exerting the proper down force pressure and testing the safety release mechanism.

Your door needs service from time to time

You should remain alert for signs that your door needs service. If the system requires excessive force to open or the door fails to remain in the open position, the door is probably unbalanced. A spring adjustment will solve this problem but because the springs are under a great amount of tension, only a professional with the proper tools and experience should make this type of adjustment.

Operating system's pulleys, cables

The operating system's pulleys, cables and rollers are also under tension. If any single component shows wear or damage, the entire system is in jeopardy of failing at any time. Our technicians are trained to detect and correct even the smallest problems before they can cause more damage to the system. You can avoid the need to deal with a catastrophic failure by scheduling regular maintenance for your garage door and opener. Our safety and maintenance inspections are designed to extend the life of your equipment and give you peace of mind that your property and loved ones are safe from harm. You can trust the experts at Garland Garage Door Repair to provide prompt, affordable and effective service every time you call.
