Commercial Garage Door Maintenance - Gold Label Door

Your company’s commercial garage doors are very important pieces of equipment that aid in the operation of your business. It’s easy to ignore minor wear and tear, but doing so can negatively impact your business in several ways. As a responsible business owner, it’s important to have your commercial door serviced by a professional at the first sign of a problem, so you can avoid safety issues and additional costs, and you can have peace of mind that your commercial door is working properly.

Why it’s Important

Your commercial door works tirelessly while you ship out orders and receive supplies each day. If it’s in need of repair, your employees and vendors are at risk of being hurt, and your company could have serious liability issues. Additionally, a faulty commercial door can be an invitation for criminals to enter your garage to steal inventory and damage your equipment inside. It’s much more cost-effective to just have your commercial door serviced at the first sign of a problem.

Aside from safety and security issues, your commercial door is a visual representation of your business values, and if yours is clearly in disrepair, it can send a negative message to potential clients. Keep your commercial door in good working condition and maintain a rock-solid reputation in your community. Potential clients are more likely to trust a company that takes care of its property and maintains a professional look.

Potential Problems

Commercial doors have many working parts that are under a significant amount of tension, and it’s best to call a professional to fix them. Some common issues include:

  • Broken Springs
  • Warped Tracks
  • Motor Burnouts
  • Old or Damaged Torsion Springs
  • Worn Cables

Commercial doors do a lot of heavy lifting, and it’s normal for parts to become worn or wear out over time. Usually, a professional can easily replace old parts so your commercial door can be up and running again in no time.

How to Prevent Issues With Your Commercial Door

A little maintenance can go a long way in keeping your commercial doors in working order, and you can probably take care of them yourself. Remember to lubricate all of the moving parts on your commercial door at least once a year, and inspect the hardware and roller brackets occasionally. Tighten any parts that seem loose, and if a roller bracket is chipped or cracked, it’s time to call a professional for a replacement. It’s a good idea to inspect your commercial door at least once a year, and take note of any signs of warping, jerking, and if the weatherstripping needs to be replaced. This will keep you ahead of any potential problems, and you’ll be able to have them fixed before they snowball into something larger — and more expensive.

Let a Professional Take Care of it

Oftentimes, DIY projects are a great choice since they save you money in the long run. Unfortunately, commercial door issues are just too dangerous to tackle on your own. Each commercial garage door is composed of many moving parts that are under a significant amount of tension, and the door itself is very heavy. Trying to fix problems on your own can result in costly mistakes, and worse, serious injury to yourself, your employees or your clients. If your commercial door is in need of repair, reach out to a professional who has the experience, training, and knowledge to tackle these issues safely.
