Did Your Garage Door Springs Go Kaput?

garage door spring

In today’s busy world as most of us find ourselves rushing about, attempting to get to one place or another on time, just about every day, our garage doors along with all its components can get quite a workout.

For homes with two or more drivers, it’s not unusual for the garage door to be operated a minimum of four times per day/300+ times per year, not counting those homes that have little ones running about.

Now consider this: your garage door springs provide the door with most, if not all, of its lifting power. What this means is that when they’re broken, your door will not be able to open, and it will become unsafe to operate.

Garage door springs, whether extension or torsion, can break for a variable number of common reasons including those listed below:

  • Rust
  • Age: 10,000 Cycles
  • Cold Weather Conditions

What Type of Garage Door Spring Do You Have?

Take a look at your garage door. If you noticed two springs on each side, then you have extension springs, which more than likely are attached with safety cables for safer handling of your door.

If the springs are attached directly above the garage door, in a central location, then you have torsion springs. These springs are the most common type of springs used in residential homes.

Both extension and torsion springs are under immense tension. It is this tension that affords your springs with the ability to counterbalance the entire weight, in some cases upwards of 500 pounds, of the garage door.

Once broken – you may hear a loud popping noise when they break – you will probably be facing some serious problems including a door that just won’t remain open.

For your safety we highly recommend that you NOT attempt to operate or force your door to open (or close), as this may cause the door to come crashing down, fast. It’s probably best that you just unplug the opener.

Seeking Help from the Professionals

While replacing springs may seem like an easy task for some of you, especially those of you that are handier around the house, it is one task that should never be completed without the help of a professional garage door repair technician.

There are many reputable garage door repair companies, including Dynamic Door Service Tulsa that can provide the entire Tulsa area, as well as surrounding areas, with same day or 24-hour emergency services.

Rather than attempting to repair something that is DANGEROUS, do yourself a favor, and call the pros at Dynamic today – (918) 938-1338. With fully stocked trucks, we can replace your springs safely and correctly, our first time out.

Garage Door Safety Tips, Prevent Dangers To Your Children

Dynamic Door Service TulsaLess than 2 weeks ago, a four-year-old boy was sadly crushed and killed by an automatic garage door in his home. Apparently, the garage door sensors had malfunctioned due to how small he was. This means that when the sensor to the garage door was obstructed by the young child, it failed to trigger the garage door opener to begin reversing. We, at Dynamic Door Service Tulsa, would like to send our condolences to his family and would also like to provide safety tips to prevent any unfortunate events like this one from happening again.

As any garage owner should now, the garage door is the largest moving object of the home. Being this large and heavy means that there is a greater chance of injury when using the garage door; therefore it is important to make sure that everyone in the home is aware of this and is willing to follow a few safety rules.

Always Monitor Young Children/Animals Around The Garage Door

As fun as a small remote with a couple of buttons or less may be, NEVER let children play with the garage door opener. It must be understood that the garage door can be dangerous and the remote is ONLY used to open and close the garage door. Again, the garage door and remote are NOT meant to be played with. Although, this does not mean that they cannot lend a helping hand by pushing the bottoms for you (only when asked). With the right mindset, children can learn how to be safe when in the garage.

Regular and Yearly Inspections/Maintenance

Just like you would get your car checked regularly, it is important to do the same with your automatic garage door and garage door opener, as there are many smaller parts working together. It is crucial that all moving parts are working properly and if not, that you get these garage door issues fixed promptly by your local garage door repair company. A proactive task you can do to check your sensors is to close the garage door. As it is closing, obstruct the beam of the sensors. You should notice that the garage door begins to open within 2 seconds of the sensor being obstructed. If this is not the case, again, call the professionals to troubleshoot the issue.

As you do your part to regularly check your garage door, make sure to have your preferred garage door experts inspect all parts of the garage door. This will make sure that the entire garage door system is functioning properly and not becoming more of a safety hazard for you and the family.

Teach When You Can

Dynamic Door Service TulsaThe garage door is not meant to be scary for children, but having them understand the true dangers of the garage door can be lifesaving. So, gather the children today and create a fun lesson for them all that teaches them how to properly use the garage door and the garage door opener remote control.

Nicki’s DIY Doggy Door

For anyone who has ever rented or is currently renting an apartment, house, or condo, small children and pets can heighten your awareness of your deposit. The best case scenario when renting is that you will be able to return the place as it was rented to you and most importantly, receiving your deposit back. Sometimes, things do not work out through the renting process. For example, bringing a puppy into an apartment without training led to a hole through the screen door to the patio. This adorable puppy managed to create her very own doggy door which was effective for her but disappointing to us. What some of us fail to remember is that many things are easily replaceable and it can even be replaced by you.

Common Garage Door Problems

Dynamic Door Service TulsaOwning any kind of machinery means that eventually, parts may need to be replaced. This includes cars, lawnmowers, and even garage doors.
