Although wear and tear can be inevitable when dealing with a system as complex as an automatic garage door, there are still some things you can do to prevent a lot of problems. Here are some useful tips you need to check out.
Check the safety sensors often for alignment, damage, or blockage
Many times your garage door safety sensors may not work properly because of an alignment problem, accidental damage, or blockage of the beam by an object or plant. Check your sensors often and make sure they are in good condition, aligned properly, and nothing is growing nearby that can interfere with its proper operation. If you spot a problem you're not sure how to correct, give our technicians a call for fast and professional service.
Always watch the movement of your door when it's operating
During the operation of your garage door, make sure you keep your eyes on it during its travel. This may seem an unusual request, but in many cases, you may be able to notice a problem visually before there are tell-tale noises or strange sounds that can lead to damage or breakage. The best preventative measure is to have our team check your door's operation annually to make sure it's operating properly.
