One of the doors that is used often in any home is the garage door. It is opened and closed every time you come and go and is used a lot. The garage is where many people will park their car to keep it safe. When the garage door stops working it can be a serious shock. This is one of these things that you really don’t think about until there is a problem. Fortunately, there are some things that you can do to stop this problem from happening. If you have a maintenance program with a professional garage door repair company they can help keep the door in the best working order.
AAA Action Doors has prepared the following list of what could go wrong with your garage door that could have been caught early with scheduled garage door maintenance.
Garage Door Motor Parts – There are many working parts that are used when your garage is activated. That also means that there are many things that can go wrong. One of the biggest parts of a garage door is the motor. The motor is what is attached to the electricity and when a button is pushed it will activate. Just like any motor it needs to be repaired and maintained to ensure that it is working correctly.
Garage Door Torsion & Extension Springs – Another part that can go out are the springs. There are two types of springs and either one can go out or get too stretched out. If this happens the motor will engage but the spring will not lift the actual door. If you have maintenance on the door done the technician will notice when the springs are looking like they may need to be replaced. They can oil them and keep an eye out for areas that look like they are starting to loose tension.
Universal Garage Door Remote – The next part is a little bit simpler and can be easily fixed. This is when it comes to the clicker that is used to open the door itself. The usual problem is that the batteries could be bad and there is not enough to throw the signal to the sensor.
Garage Door Safety Sensors – There is also garage sensors that tell the garage to stop if there is something in the way. This is a way to keep people and items out of harm’s way. When these sensor go bad they may not sense something in the way or they could sense something that is simply not there.
