Los Angeles Garage Door Maintenance Tips (11:51)

Regular maintenance is crucial to keep your Los Angeles garage door working in perfect condition. Homeowners should have some basic understanding of the door working mechanism. Mike Hanson from Precision Door shares some maintenance tips.


Precision Door Service can provide a garage door safety inspection in Los Angeles. Our trained professional will come out to diagnose a problem, install a new door or repair a part as needed. Here are some things to consider when it comes to safety:

  • Make a periodic visual inspection. Be aware and informed about how your garage door operates. Remember how it sounds when it is in good repair and take a careful look at how the door operates. Every few months, take a minute and observe any changes or differences in noise levels or how the springs, cables or rollers may be working. If anything looks worn or not quite right, give us a call for an inspection and free estimate.
  • Follow the instruction manual. Obtain an instruction manual for your door, either upon installation or online. Read the maintenance section carefully and conduct any regular maintenance such as using a silicone spray to lubricate moving parts to keep your door running smoothly.
  • Look at your ground sensors regularly. This is especially important if you have children. All automatic garage doors have sensors that will prevent a door from closing on an obstruction or a person under the door. However, if these sensors are dirty or misaligned, they may not work properly and leave your children and belongings at risk.
  • Check the door balance. When your garage door is closed, you can release your opener to allow you to check your garage door manually. When you open and close the door by hand, it should move smoothly and relatively easily. If it does not, your door may be out of balance or require other repairs.
  • Contact the professionals. Although you can find instructions to do just about anything online, attempting to fix your garage door on your own can be dangerous. If the door falls or you make an incorrect adjustment, you may be risking injury to yourself or your family.Precision Door Service of Los Angeles offers 24/7 emergency service.

Give us a call for a garage door safety inspection in Los Angeles, and we can make the best recommendations to keep your door in good working order.
