Is your garage door making terrible noises? Take a look at the following tips and learn how to handle various common issues, as well as how to take better care of your system and all of its components.
Never turn your back on a moving door
Automatic garage doors have become such a convenience that very often we don't really pay them any attention. Keep an eye on your door while it's in motion, but particularly while it is closing. It takes just a tiny second for a child or a pet to attempt to crawl under a moving door, and if you aren't paying attention, a disaster can happen. Watch your door until it completely finished moving.
Check the tracks and rollers if you hear scraping sounds
Scraping sounds are typically a result of worn out rollers or bent tracks. Both of these issues can be easily confirmed with a close inspection. Remember that replacing or repairing these components can be quite dangerous, so be sure to contact our experts to get it done safely.
Keep your garage door from squeaking
If your garage door is making some squeaking noises while it's moving, you can try to apply some lubrication to its rollers and springs. These are the usual culprits that cause such a nuisance. Be aware, though, that if the noise doesn't stop there may be something more dangerous going on. Contact our team to make sure your door is safe to use.
