At Overhead Door Tulsa, our team services the entire Tulsa metro area and we not only install garage doors, but we also maintain and service them so that they stay in top shape. Once your garage door is installed, it is important to maintain your door that way it will stand the test of time and stay in proper working condition. With the help of our Sand Springs garage door maintenance team and a few simple tips, your garage door will stay in perfect condition.
Your garage door, once installed will have several features that are designed to keep you safe. In order to ensure that these features are functioning properly, a few regular tests are necessary. On either side of the opening of your door, there is a feature called photo-eyes. The photo-eyes act as a sensor to make sure that nothing is in the way of the garage door and that it has a clear path to close. By running a regular test, you will ensure that your garage door will function properly if something does come in the way. To test this, you can place something in line with the photo-eyes and try to close your door. If it doesn’t close, you will know that the photo-eyes are properly functioning.
Another feature is the auto-reverse function. This is a feature that works if something gets past the photo-eyes. To test this function, you can put something, like piece of wood, on the ground below the photo-eyes and try to close the door. Once the door makes contact with the wood, it should raise back up.
Aside from testing these features, you can also observe the different functions on your garage door to ensure that everything is working as it should. You can watch the springs, ropes, cables, and other features as your door opens and closes and check for anything that may be out of place or not working as it should. If you notice anything wrong, our team makes service calls 24/7 so that your door can stay in top condition.
