If you've lost your opener remote, get a new one right away and change the access code.
The most important thing is to ensure that no one will be able to use the missing remote to get inside. That is why changing the code is crucial. Make sure that you keep the new remote safe in your bag or briefcase. You should avoid leaving it in the car. Have a special place for it both at home and in the office.
Debris in garage door tracks
Dirt and debris can hamper the smooth functioning of a garage door. Although you may not be able to prevent dirt from building up on the track, it should be cleaned regularly. Hinges, handles and latches should also be checked to see if there is any build up of rust.
Inspect the garage door
Garage door repair technicians advise homeowners to check the exterior of the door for signs of visible damage. The door should not move to the right or left in the opening. Check the springs, header, pulleys, counterbalance lift cables and other hardware as they should never show signs of damage.
