When it comes to your garage door, it is imperative that it remains in the best condition possible not only so that your belongings stay safe but so that you can easily access your car and whatever else you store there. Performing regular maintenance on your door will ensure that it stays in working condition and you will be able to easily detect when something goes wrong. As part of your maintenance routine, you will want to perform regular inspections on the different parts of your door. You will want to inspect the rollers, springs, and other parts of the operating system. Some wear and tear is typical but if you see anything that is damaged or needs replaced, be sure to contact our team before you make any adjustments.
Apart from the inspections of the operating system, you will also want to test the safety features on your door. The first thing that you can test is the photo-eyes. These are the sensors on either side of your garage door that will detect anything in the pathway of the garage. You can place something in the line of the photo-eyes and if your garage door continues to shut without stopping, you will know that adjustments need to be made. You can check to make sure that the sensors are aligned but anything further than that will need the assistance of our team. By contacting our team when you start to notice any issues, we will be able to more easily define the problem and solve it quickly instead of waiting until your garage is no longer operating or seriously damaged.
Once you test the photo-eyes, you can test the auto-reverse function. This is the feature that will prevent your door from closing if something is below the line of the photo-eyes. Set anything that is lower than the photo-eyes in the path of the door as it is closing and once it comes into contact with the object, the door should start to reverse and open again. This feature ensures that everything within the path of the door remains safe and unharmed. With this feature, you will be able to rest easy knowing that your garage door will keep everyone safe and that it will never close on your belongings or someone walking underneath.
All of these features have been designed to keep you and your belongings safe. If anything is ever malfunctioning, our team is on call 24/7 to help you and make any repairs necessary.
With these tips and our Fort Smith garage door company, you can rest assured that your door will stay functioning for the years to come. For more information, contact us at Fort Smith Overhead Door today!
