The need for maintenance

Many people tend to ignore the need of their garage door for a yearly tune up. The most common answer we hear over and over we suggest to perform a garage door maintenance, “I see no reason to fix something which is working in a perfect way”. We understand that the instinct tell us to avoid spending money for something which isn’t a necessity. BUT, if you look at it in the long run, you will probably get to the right conclusion that this is not a waste, but more like an investment that will prove itself when you garage door will operate perfectly for many more years.

Garage door tune up

No one will ignore the need of their car for inspection and tune up. The same goes to your garage door, which, if you will think about it, is the largest moving object in your house. The garage door mechanism include many moving parts that a basic maintenance improve the way they move, and preserve them. A professional garage door tune up should include a safety check, and tune for some parts such as the garage door spring system and for the garage door opener.

The maintenance process

The maintenance process include few parts, some of them need to get more attention than the others, depending on the condition of your garage door and on the cycle of opening and closing the door every day.
A Safety check: part of the maintenance is to test the safety reverse system (automated garage door) to make sure that the door is safe for use. If you own an automated garage door, it is a federal law that it should include a safety feature. The most common safety feature is the safety sensors. Once again, this is not an option, whether it is a garage door in Hermosa Beach, an overhead garage door in Redondo Beach, or anywhere else, your automated garage door must include a safety feature.
Lubrication:  Some parts of the overhead door need to be lubricated (including dive train and sprockets). Besides improving the movement of the parts, the lubrication also preserve the parts, and will improve the way the door operate.
Inspection: Visually inspect the overhead door, to make sure it is balanced, whole, and that there are no broken, damaged or lose parts. If you see something wrong, do not ignore it. Not only that the problem will get worst, until the door will completely stop work, but it may even increase to a point that can put you in risk, and the door may even fell of the tracks and hurt people or objects near the door.

Garage door tune up Hermosa Beach

Garage door tune up and safety

The overhead door we own serve us every day and sometime few times during the day. Let’s assume that you are using your overhead garage door only 2 times a day. Which mean you open and close it 4 times a day (2 times x open and 2 times x close). This number does not seem like a lot right? Now if you think about it, you are using your garage door around 1460 times a year. And this number makes you wonder if you shouldn’t of neglect the need for maintenance. Well if you are reading those lines, you probably did.
But before you start the maintenance process, there are few safety rules that you should follow, and they work for every garage door, from commercial garage door in Huntington Station, to garage door repair in Hermosa Beach, those rules must be followed because you should never play with safety.

  1. Make sure that everybody aware to the fact that you are about to perform the maintenance. Disconnect and unplug the garage door opener.
  2. Wear glasses, gloves, and clothes which are right for the job.
  3. Use the right tools. Do not improvise! The only safe tools to use when adding or lowering tension from torsion spring are torsion sticks.
  4. Make sure you understand the mechanism of the garage door, and avoid touching parts that you are not sure about.
  5. Make sure you planned the maintenance process completely before starting.
