Garage RepairBy Room
Whether you park your Porsche there or your Fiat, a garage is often home to one of a household’s most costly belongings. You want this space to be safe for your possessions and for you, as well. Several maintenance issues can become problems if not attended to promptly.
First in safety for a garage is the workings of the garage door. Everyone wants a garage door opener to make parking easier, but a malfunctioning garage door can be a safety hazard for humans and animals and cause damage to cars. To preserve a garage door opener’s integrity, a maintenance plan that includes inspection of the rollers, the weather stripping, the cables, and the safety features is a must on a regular basis. The door’s balance should also be checked regularly, so that the opener won’t have to work extra hard to open the door, resulting in early failure. Clearing the roller tracks of debris will also allow the motor to work more efficiently. Because a garage door is raised and lowered thousands of times during its lifetime, checking the hardware for loose bolts is a must.
Another concern for garages is the chance of cracks in the walls and floor. Cracks can lead to moisture which can lead to mold in your garage. The Homestar Group can maintain the integrity of your garage floor and ceiling and eliminate cracks.
If your garage has been home to a car that is leaking oil, cleaning the garage floor is necessary to prevent anyone from slipping on the accumulated grease. Depending on whether your garage floor is bare concrete or has been painted or coated, cleaning the floor will require one of several different methods.
The Homestar Group can help you keep your garage safe and clean with a regular maintenance plan.
