Garage Door Cleaning
Get your garage door cleaned to not only improve on aesthetics but also to prevent dirt from halting your door function. A cleaning service will wipe your garage door slats and sections with professional cleaning detergent. They will also brush dirt, mud, leaves or grit from the tracks and guides to prevent your door from getting stuck.
Slats, tracks and section inspection
The team will inspect the seats, tracks and sections on your door, checking for damage. Dented roller door slats can be straightened while damage on wooden parts will need careful repair. If the damage is extensive, replacements are installed. This is recommended for integral parts like hinges and tracks.
Garage Door Cable
Your garage door cable needs to be in excellent condition to hold your door’s weight. The service technician will inspect it for wear. If worn, have it replaced immediately. A worn cable can snap when in use, causing great damage to you, your car, or anything caught under the door. If the door is already down, a snapped cable means you can’t open your garage door.
Garage Door Spring
Springs are vital for the opening or closing of your door. When your spring breaks, it will keep the door from lifting. A service technician will inspect and test your garage springs to see if they are fit to be on your door.
Garage Door Bearings
Bearings help roll your roller door around the shaft when closing. Worn garage door roller bearings will cause too much friction in the roller box creating noise from the shaft. A technician can put in new bearings or replace the entire set if worn or broken.
The bottom seal on the garage door is essential to reduce shock from damaging your door. It also helps create an air tight seal on your door. A service technician will check how far worn the rubber seal is, depending on the amount of use it’s experienced. If there’s a hollow between the door and the ground, a new one should be put in place.
Lastly, your garage opener too will get a closer look. Your technician will check the bearings and shaft for wear. He/she will also inspect the fan to prevent overheating. The mounting of the motor too needs to be checked to avoid unnecessary movement and vibration when in use.
Doing the above will save you the embarrassment of a broken down garage door. It will also save you from costly repairs and the inconveniences that come with a faulty garage door.
