The safety and reliability of your garage door are of utmost importance to protect your family, pets, and property. Regular safety checks are essential to ensure that your garage door is operating securely and reliably. At Extra Garage Doors, we offer comprehensive safety check services to identify potential issues, address safety concerns, and provide peace of mind. Let’s explore the importance of safety checks and how our services can help you maintain a safe and reliable garage door.
Evaluation of Safety Features
During our safety check services, our experienced technicians thoroughly evaluate the safety features of your garage door. This includes testing the functionality of the auto-reverse mechanism, which should cause the door to reverse if it encounters an obstruction while closing. We also inspect the photoelectric sensors to ensure they are aligned properly and working effectively. By evaluating these safety features, we ensure that your garage door provides the necessary protection against accidents or injuries.
Inspection of Springs and Cables
The springs and cables of your garage door are crucial components that require regular inspection. Our technicians carefully examine these parts for signs of wear, damage, or fraying. Springs that are worn or cables that are damaged can pose safety risks and compromise the functionality of your garage door. By identifying and addressing any issues, we help prevent potential accidents and ensure the smooth and reliable operation of your garage door.
Verification of Balance and Alignment
Proper balance and alignment are essential for the safe and reliable operation of your garage door. During our safety check services, we verify the balance of your garage door by manually testing its ability to stay in place when partially open. We also check the alignment of the tracks to ensure that the door moves smoothly without any obstructions. By verifying the balance and alignment, we ensure that your garage door operates correctly and minimizes the risk of accidents or damage.
Tightening of Hardware
Regular use of your garage door can cause hardware, such as bolts, screws, and brackets, to become loose. Loose hardware can compromise the stability and functionality of your garage door, posing safety risks. Our technicians perform a thorough inspection of the hardware and tighten any loose components to ensure the secure operation of your garage door. This helps prevent accidents and extends the lifespan of your garage door system.
Weather Seal Assessment: The weather seals around your garage door play a crucial role in protecting your garage from the elements. Over time, these seals can become worn or damaged, compromising their effectiveness. Our safety check services include an assessment of the weather seals to ensure they are intact and properly sealing your garage door. If replacements are necessary, our team can recommend and install high-quality weather seals to maintain the integrity of your garage and protect it from moisture, drafts, and pests.
