Spring is here, and everyone is ready to spruce up their home. Atlanta can be a difficult place for allergy sufferers to tackle large outdoor projects this time of year. Many home owners use this as a great time to catch up on some indoor spring cleaning. We're all accustomed to hearing about checking the batteries in our smoke detectors to make sure our homes and families are protected, but did you know that most manufacturers recommend checking for safe operation of your garage door and opener once a month? Read on a for an general overview of the recommended monthly safety checks for your garage door.
Visually inspect the springs, rollers, cables and tracks for any sign of wear or damage. Cables should appear taut and with no fraying. Springs should be one continuous coil with no breaks or gaps. All rollers should be able to travel freely inside the tracks. Tracks should be free of any obstructions. Springs and cables are under extreme pressure, as they take most of the weight of the door. Only a professional should attempt cable or spring repair or replacement.
This step is the easiest way to keep your garage door running smoothly and quietly. We recommend using a spray lubricant on all moving parts of your door, avoiding any plastic parts. Manufacturer recommendations can vary, and most garage door manuals will offer specific guideline for your garage door or opener.
Garage doors can be quite hefty, with some tipping the scales at hundreds of pounds. All garage doors have a spring system to counter-balance that weight and make it functional. To check for proper balance, start with the garage door in the closed position. Disengage the opener by pulling the emergency release. You should then be able to easily lift your garage door. If it's difficult or heavy to lift, your garage door opener could be receiving unnecessary wear and tear. We recommend scheduling a service call as soon as it's convenient if yours feels heavy.
Always consult your owner's manual for your garage door and opener for manufacturer specific instructions on maintaining your system. Most companies offer online resources for finding the appropriate manual for your model. We also offer service plans and reasonably priced repair and maintenance services.
