Your garage door is the largest moving object in your home and has the potential to injure family members or damage property if improperly installed or maintained. It is important to regularly inspect your garage door and perform routine maintenance in order to prevent larger repair costs down the road. Precision Door Service of Bakersfield & Visalia recommends the following garage door maintenance steps:
- Visual Inspection: Inspect the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other working parts for signs of wear. Do not attempt to repair or adjust moving parts yourself! Call one of our trained professionals for a free estimate.
- Lubrication: Use a silicone based spray to lubricate moving parts in your garage door. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendations on lubrication.
- Door Balance: Periodically test the balance of your garage door. To do so, begin with the garage door closed. If you have a garage door opener, use the release mechanism so you can operate the door by hand. If the door is properly balanced, you should be able to lift it smoothly and with little resistance. If the door does not raise smoothly, it may be out of balance. Call one of our trained technicians to have it adjusted.
