A message regarding the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey
As we begin to recover and rebuild, we at Precision Garage Door of Houston wish for everyone to stay safe. Please follow these safety tips from the American Red Cross.
Events like this remind us all how priceless it is to live in a strong community. We are blessed with many generous people and organizations in this region who are working tirelessly to assist those most afflicted by these storms.
In an effort to do our part, Precision has joined with the Texas Gulf Coast Red Cross. Throughout the month of September, we will be donating a portion of our proceeds to their Disaster Relief Fund, which will aid to our fellow Texans afflicted by these storms.
Why are we doing this? It’s simple. We live here too.
When members of our community are in need, we feel it’s our obligation to help as best we can. Please join us in supporting our neighbors and the efforts of the Red Cross by donating at their website: http://www.redcross.org/local/texas/gulf-coast
We’d be remiss if we didn’t offer some advice about caring for your garage door in light of the recent weather. Here are a few tips:
- If your door is functioning fine but was exposed to a lot of water, you should lubricate it. This is easy to do yourself. We recommend using a lithium or silicone spray (non-oil-based), which you can buy at your local hardware store. For the step-by-step guide to lubricating your garage door, watch this video walkthrough.
- A common issue many customers experience after rainstorms or power outages is with their remotes and keypad entries. Generally, these just need to be reprogrammed. It only takes a couple minutes. For an instruction video on reprogramming your remotes and keypad entries, visit our video tutorial page. (Be sure to select the video for your specific system, e.g. Liftmaster, Genie, Marantec or Precision.)
- If your door is completely unresponsive when pressing the open button, check to see if your circuit breaker has been tripped. You should also check the power outlet that the motor is plugged into. These outlets have two buttons: “Test” and “Reset.” Push the “Reset” button to ensure the motor can get power. Assuming your system didn’t sustain any serious water damage, it should resume normal option.
- If your system is operating strangely or sporadically (including opening or closing with flashing lights) this could be an indication of an electronic issue. Before calling for a technician, though, you should inspect the electronic safety eyes to see if they’ve been misaligned.
If you’re still having trouble, please give us a call at 713-489-0900. We’re always available 24/7 to assist you with your garage door needs.
