Preventive maintenance on your garage door opener

Kris Uncategorised

When was the last time you performed routine preventive maintenance on your garage door opener (GDO)? Although your garage door opener is a great convenience and works well, almost all home owners take it for granted and overlook a monthly maintenance check. Neglecting regular maintenance of your garage door opener could potentially cause severe injury to family members.

“According to a recent survey, 45% of homeowners who have a garage use the garage door as the primary point of entry into their home. In addition, a separate survey indicates that 71% use their garage door openers to enter their homes”. This seems like enough evidence to convince anyone about the importance of regular maintenance for their garage doors and openers. An important thing to remember is that a GDO can easily raise a 65 to 90 kg residential door. Therefore, when a door reverses as it is closing, does it not seem logical that the door opening mechanism should be in top notch shape?
