The roll up garage door is the largest moving part in your house. To help ensure that it offers you easy, safe and reliable access, it is important to keep the door and bolt working properly. A basic maintenance routine can help you extend the life of your garage door. Checking and testing your garage door system every month. This includes examining the door lock, springs, rollers, cables and pulleys to find any signs of wear.
We are mentions that you must also ensure that the door is lubricated and balanced and follow the maintenance steps included in the owner’s manual. Regularly lubricating all moving parts of your roll up garage door during maintenance. Providing a regular visual inspection of the springs, rails and other parts of the door is a good way to help prevent malfunction due to wear and tear. Unfortunately, there is no way to know how long the springs last.
But if you do a monthly inspection it is easier to detect problems. If the springs are still in good shape, an older child should be able to open the roll up garage door manually when it is disconnected from the engine. If you find a problem with the springs, calling a certified technician for repair or replacement, as the springs are under high voltage and could cause serious injury.
