Torrance Garage Door Maintenance Tips (11:51)
A 25-Point Inspection
Getting regular inspections, along with routine maintenance, is essential for everyone’s safety. We can perform a 25-point garage safety inspection in Torrance to identify problems that may be occurring in different parts of your garage door’s operating system. We can get into the tight spaces that are often difficult and dangerous to access when untrained professionals attempt to do so.
If you want to take some of the measures into your own hands, Precision Door Service of Torrance recommends that you:
- Perform a Visual Inspection: All door springs, cables, pulleys, and other components of your garage door system should be visually inspected to identify any signs of wear and tear or other mechanical deficiencies. If you notice problems, it’s best to hire us to perform the necessary repairs and replacements instead of doing the work yourself since doing so can pose safety risks for you.
- Lubricate Moving Parts: All moving parts should be lubricated regularly so that they can continue to operate smoothly without running the risk of getting damaged from friction. A silicon-based spray works best. To find out how often your garage door parts should be lubricated, check your owner’s manual.
- Check Door Balance: A balance test should be performed periodically to ensure that your garage door isn’t misaligned when opening and closing. When performing this test, start with your garage door closed. You can then use the release mechanism if you have a garage door opener so that you can manually open the door by hand. Your door should lift smoothly and with little effort. If you struggle to open your garage door, this could be a sign that it is out of balance and needs adjusting. Precision Door Service of Torrance can send a professional technician to your location to have your door adjusted so that it’s balanced.
If you discover any problems after checking over your system yourself, the staff at Precision Door Service of Torrance will be glad to help.
