Preventative Garage Door Maintenance
Now that Fall is solidly in place and Winter is coming, it’s essential that we all get a handle on all the necessary Garage Door Maintenance that we need to implement in order to protect our garages from the coming colder season. During Winter, many garages fall into maintenance lapses and disrepair, causing problems that can last indefinitely through the coming Spring – even if we’re talking Los Angeles, and not Detroit. Here’s LA Garage Door’s guide to garage door maintenance.
Make sure to verify if the garage door opener’s light bulbs are working – and if they aren’t switch them out. Just to remind you – not all garage door openers utilize the corkscrew shaped compact fluorescent bulbs they are commonly associated with, because these lightbulbs often emit waves that mess with the garage door opener’s ability to operate correctly.
This is also a great opportunity to change timer programming as well as outdoor based lightbulbs – since nighttime exterior lighting is not only a major boost to your home security, but also to the safety of all those in or around your home. You might need to replace a dim bulb, or simply wipe off any dust or cobwebs that mitigate the light’s intensity.
