Garage Door Repair Winnetka & The Surrounding Cities
One very good reason for Garage Door Repair Winnetka CA services is your safety. Why garage door accidents happen? There are a number of reasons for the system causing serious injuries, accidents or even deaths. From improper garage door installation to sudden snapping of the springs and tampering with the tensed fixtures, any wrong move or decision could lead to fatal accidents. Some minor injuries are caused when you don’t invest in garage doors with safety parts. But most accidents happen because people underestimate the importance of safety inspection and routine garage door service and try to repair the door themselves.
Feel safe with garage door opener repair
You can trust A+ Garage Door Woodland Hills CA with your urgent needs since our company offers services 24/7. But problems must be reported as soon as they are discovered. The fact is that many safety sensors around the country don’t work well or not at all, but owners neglect to fix them. Damaged sensors are a main source of accidents and this is the reason why we align, replace, and fix them as fast as possible. What’s even more important than emergency garage door opener repair is the preventive service of the unit.
When the force settings of the opener are not adjusted properly, the door might move quicker than you anticipated and hit you. If you add to that the possibility of damaged sensors, the door won’t stop and reverse when it comes in contact with you but will keep pressing you against the floor. A simple problem can turn into a tragedy. In order for the sensors to see you and reverse the door, they must be installed six inches over the floor and face each other. If they are misaligned, they won’t offer protection. If they are dirty, they will still not reverse the door. These are the things our Garage Door Repair Winnetka experts check, test and fix during maintenance service for the sole purpose of your protection.
Replace extension and torsion springs before it’s too late
Accidents happen due to broken springs too. They are actually the most vital parts of the door. Since their role is to balance and move the door, they are as strong as the door’s weight. In a different case, they wouldn’t be able to control it. For starters, you need the help of our Garage Door Repair Winnetka CA team when you replace the door since you must pick the right size and type of springs based on the door’s weight. But you will also need the help of our garage door spring repair specialists. Apart from replacing broken springs, we also replace them before they snap. If they do so, they fly against walls or in the air causing property damage and hurting whoever stands in their way.
What we also suggest for the avoidance of accidents is the installation of safety cables. These cables are installed with extension springs and their role is to keep the springs from flying in the event of breakage.
Safety tips by our expert garage door repair team
Here are a few more things you should do or NOT do to keep safe:
- Don’t tamper with the header or bottom brackets. The former ones ensure the reverse system works and the latter is attached to the tensed cables.
- Never adjust or replace garage door springs on your own.
- Don’t stand under the overhead door or let children play around it.
- Never let kids play with the clicker.
- Keep fingers away of the joints, especially when the door is moving.
