Every time we install or service garage doors in Palo Alto, they glide up and down with such ease that you may fail to realize the powerful force it takes to make this take place. A properly functioning garage door will open and close in a process so smooth that you may think that there is little risk in attempting your own repairs. Realize that a do it yourself attitude may be more economical, but in the long run may be very costly. No matter what your age, repairing a garage door can be dangerous.

Because the garage door springs are under high tension a garage door is not an area for children to play. Remember that garage doors are not toys so keep children away. Do not let children play with a remote control unit or transmitter. The push button control should be mounted at least five feet high and out of reach of children. Never try to walk under a moving garage door. The bolts on the lower brackets of your garage door hold the garage door springs in place. These springs are under extreme tension that could result in serious injury if they are improperly loosened. A simple rule is for you to make a careful evaluation of whether you can fix loose or broken bolts. It is better to call Valuemax Garage Door Repair Palo Alto to safely remedy this situation.

Proper installation, maintenance and inspection are necessary to maintain a safe operating garage door. Use the checklist to make monthly inspections. Always keep your hands away from a moving garage door. You should also lubricate bolts, hinges, and rollers to keep them in good working order. It is also wise to review your owner's manual and follow manufacturer's recommendations.

During your inspections, if you observe something that requires more than routine maintenance be sure to call your Valuemax Garage Door technician. Your Palo Alto Garage Door Repair technician is waiting for your call at 1-650-209-6923 or toll-free at (866)575-9050.
