Professional Garage Door Related Advice
Our company has been in the garage door business for quite a few years so we definitely know a thing or two about the industry! Check out some of our expert tips.
Use two tests to confirm that your sensors are working properly
The first test involves opening the garage door and blocking the sensors by placing a solid item like a cardboard box in front of one of them. When you attempt to close the door with the remote, the unit must not go down. For the second test, you will need a long thin object like a garden rake. Wave it in front of the sensors while the door is closing. The door should immediately reverse.
Make sure your door closes properly
It's important to check that your garage door closes properly for security reasons. It is very important that you make sure it closes all the way down. If it doesn't, there is a problem. Your opener's travel limit may require some adjustment, or perhaps your springs are the culprit. Either way, make sure to have our professional technicians take a look at your door.
Clean the part before you lubricate it
Lubrication is an excellent way to keep the operation of your garage door's moving parts smooth and efficient. But before applying the lubricant, you must thoroughly clean the targeted components first. Otherwise, the new lubricant will stick to residues of old ones, which will end up attracting more dirt.
