If you're looking for practical ways to take care of your garage door system, we have some suggestions. Our expert technicians have over a decade's worth of experience, and we have a lot of advice to offer. Check out some of our useful tips.
Do not let your kids operate your garage door
Kids love playing around the house, but while some appliances can be suitable to be part of their games, your garage door certainly isn't. Teach your children your garage door is not a toy, and they should treat it with the appropriate respect. Make sure to keep your opener remote somewhere they won't be able to reach. If you're about to have a new door installed, apply the same approach when placing the wall-mounted control panel.
Make sure the tracks are aligned correctly
If your garage door tracks are not aligned correctly, the rollers won't be able to move properly, and there's a high chance that they'll either get stuck or slide off. The door panels can collapse when this happens, or the door can jam. Make sure your tracks are clean and free of debris, and call our experts to have them realigned.
How often should I have my garage door maintained?
Garage door maintenance is the type of procedure that can only benefit you the more frequent you get it done. As a general rule, you should have your system maintained at least twice a year. Maintenance does more than boost performance, it also ensures that the system's various parts are in a good condition and that its safety and security features are functioning correctly.
