At J&E Garage Door, we’re passionate about keeping Hoffman Estates communities safe. ️And in a neighborhood full of families and active lifestyles, one crucial aspect of home security often gets overlooked: the garage door.
Your garage door is the largest moving object in your home, and its proper functioning is essential for both safety and convenience. But like any mechanical system, garage doors require regular maintenance and attention to prevent potential hazards.
- Keep children and pets away from the moving door, and educate them about the dangers of playing near it. Install photoelectric sensors that automatically stop the door if something breaks the beam.
- Ensure the automatic reversal feature works properly by placing an object in the door’s path during closing. The door should reverse immediately upon contact.
- Locate and familiarize yourself with the manual release handle in case of power outages or malfunctions.
- Avoid storing flammable materials or chemicals near the garage door opener.
- Regularly check for visible signs of wear and tear, such as rust, cracks, or loose bolts and screws.
- Lubricate the hinges, rollers, and tracks according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This helps ensure smooth operation and prevents premature wear.
- Springs are under immense tension and can pose a serious safety risk if damaged. Have them inspected and serviced by a qualified professional.
- Schedule regular maintenance checks for your garage door opener to ensure its functionality and prevent potential breakdowns.
