Read our Garage Doors Safety tips when servicing your own garage door!

Our Bakersfield Garage Door Repair safety tips are mostly common sense do's and don'ts. These comments should help you make better repair decisions and to see that the garage door operates safely. Every time Valuemax installs or services a garage door in Bakersfield it glides 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. Repairing a garage door can become a dangerous job if you don't know proper procedures. Our first safety tip is for you to keep your fingers away from a moving garage door. Also, never attempt to run under a moving garage door. Use a spray lubricant for squeaky garage doors as the noise is not necessarily an indication of a problem. Keep your owner's manual close to the garage door, and read it through.

We recommend that you do not attempt to adjust or replace your garage door springs or cables yourself. It is always better to replace old springs before they break. Both of them are under very high tension that could cause a very serious injury if they are not properly handled. If you find the springs broken or out of adjustment you should call one of our certified Valuemax Bakersfield Garage Repair technicians at 1-661-379-8089 or toll-free at (866)575-9050 to handle this repair.

When you use the push button transmitter, keep the garage door in sight until it is closed. Don't let children play around a garage door. Garage doors are not toys so keep children away. Because the garage door springs are under high tension it is not an area for children to play. Teach children to keep their hands and fingers away from garage door moving parts. The push button wall control should be out of reach from children, at least five feet from the floor. Garage doors should go up and down smoothly so be aware of a potential problem before it happens. If it does not operate smoothly, give Valuemax a call.

Frayed cables need to be replaced immediately. The bolts on the lower brackets of your garage door hold the garage door springs in place. Remember that these springs are under extreme tension that could result in serious injury if they are improperly loosened. The simple rule is to be very careful attempting to fix loose or broken bolts. Call Valuemax Garage Door Repair Bakersfield to safely remedy this situation.

We have given you a checklist for you to make monthly inspections so use it. At the same time you can lubricate bolts, hinges, and rollers to keep them in good working order.

During your inspections, if you observe something that requires more than routine maintenance be sure to call your Valuemax Garage Door technician. Your Bakersfield Garage Door Repair technician is waiting for your call at 1-661-379-8089 or toll-free at (866)575-9050.
