With so many things going on in our busy lives, it’s hard to remember to cram one more thing into our schedule, even if that thing has the potential to save us both time and money. Your garage door needs garage door maintenance just like other mechanical parts need to keep running smoothly. Furthermore, the garage door is the largest moving part in the majority of homes and is often also the most used entrance in homes. When you ensure that your garage door maintenance is done at least once every year, you don’t have to worry as much about mechanical problems, dangerous malfunctions, or being trapped in your garage if your door doesn’t open one busy morning! The biggest issue? Making sure it gets done! Here at Doors by Nalley of Lake Norman, Inc., we have a few helpful ideas to make sure that your garage door maintenance gets done.
One of the best things that you can do to remember to schedule your garage door maintenance is to pair your maintenance appointment with another yearly memorable event. Whether it is your child’s birthday, your favorite silly holiday, or the start of a season, start to pair that event with the scheduling of your garage door maintenance.
Another thing you can do is to put it on your phone. Almost everyone has a smartphone, and reminders can be set up to remind you of an appointment to make a year, month or few days in advance.
