Remember to change the access codes if you lose your remote
The most important thing is to ensure that no one will be able to use your missing remote to get inside your home. That is why changing the code is crucial. Make sure that you keep the new remote safe as part of your keychain or somewhere secure. Don't leave it in your car or somewhere your children can reach it.
Check your tracks for debris and clean them
Dirt and debris can hamper the performance of your garage door and may even cause it to get stuck, or get off track. Although you may not be able to prevent dirt from building up inside the tracks, you can definitely do something about it. Periodically cleaning them out and checking them for rust will help you avoid a lot of potentially dangerous accidents.
Inspect your garage door on a regular basis
As part of a regular maintenance routine, you should check the exterior of your door for signs of visible damage. If the panels are showing any signs of rust, warping or rot, they need to be treated right away, or replaced, depending on the severity of the situation. If you neglect to address these issues in time, your entire door may need to be replaced eventually.
