Inspecting moving parts
Proper maintenance will always begin with an inspection of all the moving hardware. We look for any signs of wear and tear. The parts we usually inspect are the springs, cables, rollers and all moving hardware. Damages, if any found during the process are duly fixed.
Door balance test
In case your door uses an automatic opener system, we will test how stable the balance is to avoid damaging the door opener. We will close the door and disconnect the opener to lift the door manually. It should lift smoothly with little resistance and should remain fully open. If it is difficult to open the door, it may be out of balance and we will service it for you.
Lubrication of moving parts
Occasional lubrication will be required on the moving parts of the garage door. The rollers and the hinges will be lubricated. We apply only as much lubricant as required because too much of it will attract dirt that will clog the work. This is necessary to ensure that the door does not emit unnecessary noise when operated.
Photo eye test
All door openers have a photo eye installed for safety reasons in order to prevent entrapment. If your system lacks the feature, we will replace it with an automatic one. We will use an object to block the photo eye and would also switch off the system. We will also ensure the photo sensor is mounted not higher than six inches off the floor.
It is important to check the force setting of the door opener. It is done by holding the door’s lower part as it closes. If it does not promptly reserve, then the force is too much and will require some adjustments. Our experts will carry out the adjustments and fine tune the force sensitivity.
Servicing the springs and cables
It would be necessary for the tension springs to be at a perfect level. The springs will always lose tension with time, making the door hard to operate or can even result in the door to completely stop working. We will have them inspected and get them back working. We will also check for any wear or corrosion of the cables and service them as required. The cables work under specific tensions and we will replace them correctly.
