Garage Door MaintenanceBack To Our Services
Testing Safety Sensors
These days, all electric garage doors used in homes must be equipped with safety sensors as per the UL325 standard. As part of our garage door maintenance service, we test these devices to confirm that they work normally. The first step involves cleaning them if they are dirty or dusty and aligning them so that they face each other. After opening the door, we block one of the sensors with an object and attempt to close the door with a clicker. The door must stay in place. If it moves down, the sensors must be faulty and we’ll replace them.
Lubricating Torsion Springs
Since there is friction between the coils of these springs while they run, they need lubrication as part of maintenance. Our first task is to clean the springs if they have any sticky dirt on top. Then we apply a thin layer of light lubricant, resistant to hardening, to all coils of the springs. The final step involves running the door for one or two cycles to make sure that the compound is properly spread.
