    17308810_sWith the weather warming up and the first day of Spring fast approaching your garage door will soon be getting a workout. Bringing out yard equipment, gardening tools, and kids’ toys – not to mention organizing the garage and possibly even having a garage sale all require opening and closing the garage door. Before increase the amount of use your garage door gets, consider following these simple maintenance tips to make sure your garage door is in top condition.

    • Check to make sure the garage door is safe. After having your garage door installed, it is important to have regular safety checks of the door itself and the door opener. These checks should be done by a professional with experience installing, repairing, and servicing garage doors. During a safety check your garage door will be checked to make sure that the sensor and reversing mechanisms are working. This is especially important if you have small children or pets in the home.
    • Check the operation of the garage door. Open and close your garage door using both the remote opener as well as the hardwired opener. Watch it from inside of the garage and outside. Look for unevenness of the door moving up and down the rails, once it closes look to make sure the bottom is flush with the ground across the entire width of the door, listen for creaking, popping, and any other noises that sound troubling. Make notes and report anything that you notice to your professional garage door technician during the safety check appointment.
    • Maintenance checks. Just like with any piece of electronic equipment in your home it is important to have regular maintenance checks. As your garage door gets older, these appointments become more frequent, but a good rule is to have your garage door serviced every three years.

    Springtime is a definite sign that summer is just around the corner. As the sun begins to shine, people are inspired to start up the lawnmower, take bike rides around the neighborhood, and make trips to the dump getting rid of unneeded things from the garage. Don’t let a malfunctioning garage door put a damper on your list of Spring cleaning to-do’s. Call our office today to schedule a safety check of your garage door.
