All commercial garage door manufacturers recommend annual commercial garage door maintenance in order to ensure that these doors work properly and safely each time they are used. In order to make this happen, you should call the experienced and trusted technicians at Door-Mart™ Garage Doors in California. We serve Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, and surrounding cities. We’re available 24/7; call us at 1-800-829-9833 to schedule an appointment for service.

Leave The Maintenance to The Professionals

It is highly recommended that you do not try to perform maintenance or repairs on commercial garage doors on your own. You should leave this to the professionals.

Commercial garage door manufacturers will issue warnings about working on doors without the proper training or tools, especially for certain components regarding:

  • Door springs
  • Cables
  • Brackets
  • And other hardware attached to the springs

These components are under very high tension and, if handled improperly, can cause serious injury or death.

Quarterly Maintenance

Commercial garage door maintenance should be performed at least quarterly, or every 5,000 cycles, whichever comes first. When you schedule an appointment for maintenance with Door-Mart™ Garage Doors, our technicians will perform the following:

  • Inspect and repair door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other hardware for signs of wear
  • Inspect  for fraying cables,  defective  hinges and malfunctioning hardware components
  • Secure  all  loose screws, nuts bolts and all other miscellaneous fasteners.
  • Check the roller alignment, as well as defective components andexcessive wear.  The technician will replace them when necessary
  • Check the springs for torsion lag, metal fatigue, rust, wear and proper  attachment.

Our technician will also lubricate the garage door either quarterly or every 5,000 cycles. One of our technicians will apply the correct lubricant based on your door’s manufacturer’s recommendations for hinges, rollers, and springs. Our technician will also make sure that the torsion springs have enough lubrication.

The operation of the garage door should be checked at least annually. If the door operates using a motor, be sure to disconnect the arm and try to operate the door manually. If the door is easy to open and close, there isn’t great urgency for maintenance. . However, if the door is difficult to open or close, the door might need to be maintained and realigned.  Nevertheless, regular maintenance is a must for the garage door longevity and health.

The technician will test the motor and the sensors to ensure they are both working properly. The sensors are crucial to the operation of the commercial garage door as they tell the door if it’s safe to close.

The technician will make sure that the sensors recognize  objects in the path of the door as it closes. If they do not recognize obstructions in the door path, the technician will either adjust or replace them.

Keep a Watchful Eye on The Garage Door

You can do your part to ensure that the garage door at your business continues to operate smoothly by keeping a watchful eye on it. Make sure employees know what to look for in terms of poor operation, including loud noises and damage. Have them fill out equipment repair reports internally so that management knows there is a problem with the garage door and a technician is contacted as soon as possible.

Assign an employee to the task of visually inspecting the commercial garage door at least once per month, especially if it is used many times per day. The employee should watch the door as it raises and closes, making sure that it is moving evenly along the tracks. The employee should listen for unusual  noises, such as whining, grinding and squeeking, as the door operates. If anything seems out of the ordinary, make sure the employee knows who to notify within your company or have them call Door-Mart™ Garage Doors directly at 1-800-829-9833 to have a technician come out for repair at your convenience.
