Ideal Garage is there when you need us!

Garage doors are like every other system in your household. They need to be maintained regularly to perform their best and last as long as possible. Lubricating all the moving parts of a garage door is an integral part of regular maintenance.

Garage doors have many components that need to work together smoothly for proper operation. Opening and closing the door several times a day, every day, causes wear and tear on those components. Rust, grime, and dirt inside moving parts only make matters worse. A buildup of debris causes friction and puts even more stress on the door’s delicate mechanisms.

Regular garage door maintenance from the pros at Ideal Garage in Scottsdale eliminates the problems associated with a dirty or poorly maintained garage door.

Signs it’s Time for Garage Door Maintenance

Most people don’t think much about their garage doors until something goes wrong. But there’s never a convenient time for your garage door to stop working. It’s much easier to schedule maintenance appointments with Ideal Garage than deal with a door that won’t budge. We recommend having your garage door cleaned, lubricated, and inspected by a professional every 6 to 12 months, depending on usage and other factors.

If you notice any of the following signs, your door is due for maintenance.

The Door is Noisy

Squeaking, creaking, banging, and popping noises every time the door is raised or lowered are not normal. Unusual noises could be a sign of rust buildup or broken springs.

 A well-maintained garage door should operate quietly and smoothly, even if it’s several years old. Make an appointment for garage door lubrication to stop the clanging and banging and extend the life of your garage door system.

The Remote Doesn’t Respond

Delays in response time between your garage door opener and remote controller indicate a need for maintenance. Both the remote and door opener are programmed to work together the first time, every time. If you have frequent problems with your remote, call Ideal Garage in Scottsdale for a garage door checkup.

An Unexplained Spike in Your Energy Bill

A garage door should provide a tight barrier between your garage and the elements. A dirty or poorly lubricated door may not close properly, leaving a gap where heat, cold, or water can seep in.

In addition, extreme temperature changes in the garage can cause your HVAC system to work harder, resulting in unexplained increases in your utility bill. If you’ve noticed that your garage seems much warmer or colder than usual, or if water leaks into the garage after a storm, garage door lubrication could solve the problem.

If your garage door is showing any of these symptoms or if you have other concerns about the door’s function, contact Ideal Garage today. A malfunctioning garage door isn’t just inconvenient. It is a hazard that compromises the security of your home and the safety of everyone who walks under it.

Importance of Garage Door Maintenance

The service team at Ideal Garage understands that buying a new garage door is a big investment. That’s why we want to help you get the most extended life and best performance out of your existing door system. And regular garage door maintenance is an essential part of that.

A maintenance appointment with Ideal Garage includes a thorough inspection with the following key steps:

  • Checking rollers for signs of wear or breakage
  • Checking drums for signs of unusual wear or cracking
  • Inspecting door balance for proper spring function
  • Checking cables for kinking or fraying
  • Checking bearings, plates, hinges, and brackets for wear
  • Inspecting the spring bar for bending and rust

This is only a partial list of the maintenance tasks we perform. Every moving part of your garage door is closely inspected for safe and efficient performance. If we find that repairs are needed, they can typically be completed the same day—there is no need to schedule a second appointment.
