Your Garage Door Service Should Provide 24-Hour Emergency Service
Think about some of the problems that can happen when your garage door opener isn’t working properly. You could be locked outside of your home after a visit to the grocery store, or your car can be trapped inside your garage when you’re running late to work in the morning. It’s even possible that your garage door may be stuck open leaving your storage items vulnerable to thieves.
As with other problems around your home, they never happen when it’s convenient, and always seem to happen when you least expect it.
Worse yet is your garage door can be dangerous if not working properly. The springs used on a garage door operate under a lot of tension. Some garage doors weight more than 300 pounds, so if the spring is broken, the door can become extremely dangerous if you’re trying to lift it or close it by hand on your own. It’s not worth the risk of damaging your vehicle or injuring yourself.
So let’s face it, garage door issues can be frustrating at best, dangerous at worst. And with an inconvenience this serious, you need access to a solution at anytime of the day.
Reputable garage door services, like The Up & Up Garage Doors, provides same-day service and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. So, if your garage door spring breaks in the middle of the night, we’ll make sure your broken spring is addressed quickly.
Prevent the need for Emergency Garage Door Service
The best way to avoid having to call an emergency service for your garage door is to take regular care of your garage door.
Lubricate the Door
If you take a close look at your door, you’ll notice it’s mostly made from metal hardware which can rust and stick after ongoing general use. Lubricating these parts will help protect your door from water damage and rust, and also make sure the door opens easily with little friction. This can go a long way in helping extend the life of the door and all of its working parts.
Old or Outdated Garage Door Opener
You may also want to consider updating your garage door opener. With the number of wireless technology systems in and around homes nowadays, there are many signals that reach your home and your older garage door opener. Many of these signals may interfere with older systems that were built prior to 1993. Upgrading to newer technology helps secure your opener from any outside interference.
As mentioned earlier, the springs carry a lot of weight with your door. Literally. They help counteract the weight of the door so that your garage door opener can lift it. The wear and tear of springs is an unfortunate fact of life, and it’s something you need to prepare for as garage door springs are likely going to be the part you’ll most often need to replace. Most garage door springs need to be replaced about every 10,000 cycles.
General Wear and Tear
As you use your garage door, and it gets older, it generally becomes looser and may become vulnerable to break-ins. An old door should be replaced about every 12 years. Take a good look at your garage door next time you get home and see if you can spot any areas which seem to have become loose or damaged from normal wear and tear.
