Titan Garage Doors Lincoln NE received a call from a business owner in Waverly, NE who needed a garage door tune-up. Our technicians made sure all assembly pieces and hardware were in the appropriate place and the door was operating smoothly. Following the tune-up, we recommend a preventative maintenance plan that allows them to keep their commercial garage door in good working condition. The customer was so happy with the tune-up service we provided and availed of our preventative maintenance plan.
Regular garage door maintenance is essential for both large and small businesses to keep things functioning properly. Regular tune-ups keep a commercial garage door in good working order and prevent minor issues from turning into big ones. Tune-ups not only save money on repairs and replacements but also keep everyone safe. Furthermore, a garage door will last for decades if maintained properly. Although commercial garage doors come with safety mechanisms, accidents can occur if they are not properly maintained.
Loose nuts and screws can cause vibration and excessive noise in a garage door. The extra movement adds wear and tear to the mechanisms, leading to the door’s poor performance. Technicians tighten and/or replace loose and worn parts as needed during a tune-up.
Garage doors are made up of several intricate components that require regular adjustment and lubrication. During a tune-up, technicians will use the right type and amount of lubricant on garage door parts, including chain rail, metal rollers, ball bearings, hinges, stems, nubs, lock, and the armbar.
Rollers and tracks
Rollers and tracks can misalign over time, increasing friction and straining the garage door motor. Therefore, rollers and tracks inspections are standard in garage door opener maintenance services to ensure that everything is where it should be.
A garage door’s balance is affected by the amount of tension on the garage door springs. During a tune-up, the technicians will perform a balance test to see if the garage door binds, sticks, or is out of balance and will make adjustments if needed.
Any grinding, scraping, or abnormal sound indicates a problem. The most common causes of noise are certainly fixable with the right type of lubricant. The moving parts of a garage door system, such as the springs, hinges, and rollers should all be greased on a regular basis to keep them functioning smoothly for years.
If your garage door does not open or close with ease, it should not be ignored. Slowing down, jerking, or shuddering movements are signs of something wrong with the door. If you notice unusual movements in your door, a certified technician can identify the issues and fix them.
Automatic reverse malfunction
When a garage door closes despite an obstruction on the door’s path means the automatic reverse feature is malfunctioning. Operating the door without this feature can be quite risky. Call a professional for a tune-up if you observe a non-working or faulty automatic reverse feature.
