Large mechanical systems require regular upkeep in order to stay functional for a long time. Your garage door, whether manual or automatic, falls into this category. Of course, you may not have the time or the desire to deal with this, which is why our company provides regular maintenance appointments that can cover all of your door's needs.
Safe Spring Adjustment
As they get older, different parts of your garage door mechanism will began to degrade. The springs, which are in charge of counterbalancing the weight of the panels, are under a large amount of stress every day, and the wear and tear they suffer from will make them break eventually. To mitigate this, the tension of these units will need to be adjusted every so often. This is a dangerous task, so you should leave it to our experts. Trying to DIY it can quickly lead to you getting seriously hurt.
Making Sure User Safety Is Maintained
An automatic garage door needs to be able to tell when there's something or someone standing in its way, which is why the opener safety sensors have such a crucial part. Sensor misalignment can occur due to a number of reasons, and without checking the functionality of these parts you may be left unaware, until something bad happens. As part of every maintenance appointment, we will test your system's photo eye sensors and realign them if needed. We'll also test the opener's auto-reverse mechanism, to ensure the door won't keep trying to close when it encounters physical resistance.
Reducing Noise Output
Naturally, you'll want your garage door to operate as silently as possible, but this will depend on the type of drive system it's opener uses, as well as the kind of motor it has (DC vs AC). However, there is still something that can be done. Regular lubrication maintenance will ensure that the system's moving metal parts, like the rollers, hinges and drive gears, are all working as quietly as possible. This will also reduce friction, which means it will also reduce the regular wear and tear these parts go through.
Saving Effort, Money and Time
Having to deal with an unexpected problem with your automatic door can be very annoying and inconvenient, not to mention – dangerous. The maintenance service our team at Garage Door Repair Hastings provides will allow you to avoid a great deal of issues, and to enjoy a longer lasting system. Call us today to learn more.
