This week marks the beginning of spring. In a season that represents new beginnings, there is no better time to make sure your garage is in tip-top shape by tidying it and adding solutions for organization, as well as hiring pros for any necessary garage door repairs. Spring is also an ideal time to install high-cycle torsion springs and a smart garage door opener. Here is your action plan for ensuring a tidy, functional garage this spring.
In the Garage
A functional garage means that you can securely park your vehicles inside. However, for many, the garage is used to store excess belongings. That often leaves no room to park. If this sounds familiar, then letting go of some items may prove incredibly beneficial. It will, after ensuring the door and opener are working optimally, help ensure you can protect your car from the elements.
Expert organizers recommend saying goodbye to anything you haven’t used in more than a year, have unnecessary duplicates of, and that may not hold any sentimental value. Anything you no longer want can be donated, sold, or recycled. Doing this will allow you to add in solutions such as racks, cabinets, and pegboards in which you can sort like items together to create an organized system.
Focus on the Garage Door
Now that your garage is organized, it’s time to provide the garage door with some much-needed TLC by cleaning it. Wipe it down using a microfiber sponge soaked in soapy water and then rinse thoroughly. Inspect the door for damage or age-related problems. While standing inside the garage, watch and listen to the door as it moves along its tracks, noting any unusual movements or noises. If you need garage door repairs, contact Sun Devil Garage Door to schedule an appointment.
Test the Garage Door Opener
Equally important is doing routine safety tests on the garage door opener. You should test the photoelectric sensors, automatic reversal system, and the balance of the door. It is essential to perform these tests monthly, following the detailed instructions provided by a repair professional. There are several options if you need or want to replace your unit, including smart garage door openers, which connect to your home Wi-Fi network. Smart openers provide peace of mind, as they enable remote operation and monitoring of the door.
