Remember in school being told to stop, drop and roll in the event of a fire? While these safety tips are certainly helpful in a fire, they also apply to garage door maintenance. Here’s how:
- Stop: You may have had the experience as a child of hitting the garage door button to close and then running as fast as you possibly could to duck under it before it hit the bottom. Thanks to updated technology, this is no longer possible. If your garage door detects something in its tracks as it is closing, it has a safety feature causing it reopen to avoid crushing whatever is in its path. If you have cleared the path and are still experiencing a problem with the door stopping, it may be time to call for professional garage door maintenance.
- Drop: Are you constantly yelling at the kids for slamming the door as they run in and out of the house? If your garage door is causing you to want to scream out because it is dropping too quickly or loudly, it could be a sign your torsion springs are going bad. Instead of yelling at the door every time you back out, call us to come check it out.
- Roll: Whether it is caused by broken or damaged springs or being off track, if your door is not opening at all or not rolling smoothly as it does, it is another sign that it’s time for some garage door maintenance.
