How do I make my garage door less noisy?
First, inspect your door for worn-out and damaged components, then get the parts replaced in a timely fashion. Any loose hinges and track sections should also be tightened, and any moving parts lubricated.
What does garage door cleaning involve?
You need to clean all the metal parts with a solvent and then lubricate them properly - for example, the list includes rollers, hinges and springs should all be given attention. You should clean the garage door panels as well but the panels don't require lubrication. We recommend using warm soapy water and a sponge.
How often should I get my garage door checked?
As your garage door is one of the heaviest moving electro-mechanical systems in your home, it does require a certain amount of maintenance to continue functioning properly. We recommend having your system inspected by a professional at least once a year.
Should I get clickers or keypads?
They are both safe solutions as long as they work with rolling code technologies according to our specialists in Denton. Some people find remote controls more convenient and some prefer the digital opener access systems. So, it will depend on your lifestyle and personal preference. If you keep losing or damaging the clicker, perhaps it's time to get a wireless garage door keypad. In any case, you must keep codes and remotes hidden from kids.
When I try to close the garage, it reverses and opens. Why?
When this happens, it's usually because the sensors have identified an obstruction in the pathway of the door. In order to resolve this problem, you should check the area for possible objects blocking the sensors. If the problem persists, the sensors themselves may need troubleshooting.
What is the backup battery system?
It's the new asset of contemporary openers. Until now you were using the emergency release cord when the power was out to open the door. Today, openers use the backup battery system for full autonomy as experts at Garage Door Repair Denton say.
Why are my springs so noisy?
In order to do the work they're supposed to, your garage door springs need to be lubricated enough to stretch and contract - without this, they can become rusted over time, causing noise each time they're operated.
