Leave the major repairs to professional technicians
Are you a DIY person? That’s great! You can perform basic maintenance tasks for your garage door. However, for major issues such as garage door spring repair and replacement, we strongly advise you to leave this with the professional technicians. These tasks are extremely difficult to carry out unsuccessfully if untrained and can be dangerous.
Check the Safety Sensors
Every garage door has safety sensors, which are located on the rails around six inches above the floor. They reverse the direction of your garage door when an object is located underneath, and therefore are an important safety feature. To test your safety sensors, place an object in front of one of the sensors, while pushing the button to start the garage door. If the door doesn’t reverse, your sensors aren’t working properly.
Close Your Garage Door!
The very purpose of a garage door is to protect what’s inside, whether a car or other personal belongings. Leaving your garage door open is counterproductive, and leaves you susceptible to burglary. The last thing you want is to be exposed to opportunistic criminals, so always close your garage door.
