Is your garage door operating efficiently?
Garage doors are some of the most used appliances in the home. With everyday use comes the need for maintenance and repairs to keep the garage door running smoothly. Not only do you want a working garage door, but safety is our first priority for our customers here at Metro Garage Doors. Your family’s safety comes with a well-kept garage door. Maintaining the highest quality garage door requires regular maintenance, repairs, and the knowledge of how to ensure your garage door is running correctly. Efficient garage doors are a must in our eyes.
How you can maintain your garage door
Garage doors are heavy and complex appliances with many moving parts. It is important to be consistent in checking out a few key parts and features to determine if you may need a repair.
- Dusting the metal parts of your garage door keeps the tracks running smoothly. Lubrication of the metal rollers, hinges, rail, and armbar prevents the garage door from breaking. If you notice one of these parts missing, bent, or broken, you can call Metro today to diagnose the problem with your garage door. Trying to operate a garage door with broken hinges or a bent rail can be very dangerous.
- Your garage door’s reverse mechanism should be checked for accuracy. If there is an object in the way, it should stop and reverse rather than hitting the object.
- Check the alignment of the sensors. It is common for sensors to get knocked out of line and interfere with the garage door opening and closing. Be sure that they are facing one another.
- Ensure the seals around the door frame are in place and blocking any debris or moisture from entering. Having secure weather seals will save you energy and money on your electric bills. They prevent chilly weather from entering the home and circulated air from leaving.
