5 Helpful Maintenance and Repair Tips for Your Automatic Gate System

by Jessica Wilson Blog Writer
Make sure your automatic gate system is working without any trouble. Maintenance is a must to ensure that outcome. Whether you’ve got those gates installed at home or around your commercial facility, or you are still planning to have them put in place, here are important maintenance tips that you need to know right now.

Keep the Gates Clean 

If your gates look bad, if they’re already rusting over in some parts or the paint is flaking off, then you’ll need to start cleaning those gates. Wiping the surface off is often enough to get rid of any lingering dirt and debris that could worsen any problems with the gates. Be sure that when you clean the gates, you check the track gate for any clutter or debris. 

Do Visual Checks

It’s easy to lose sight of a million things you need to do or see to at home. But if you want your automatic gate system to work hitch-free for as long as possible, then visual checks are a must. This means investigating the gate for any signs of damage or trouble. That doesn’t mean you should proceed with a DIY repair trick you’ve seen on YouTube or online. If there are any signs that the unit has problems, hire pros for automatic gate repair.

Do Your Homework 

Not all contractors are the right fit for the job, though. Start with their credentials. What kind of qualifications do the contractors have? Have they worked on a similar system before? How will they fix the problem? Do they have any idea what’s wrong and how will the repair proceed? A good repair crew will know how to walk you through the problem and the proposed solution. If the contractor can’t seem to explain what’s happening or can’t even walk you through the solutions they offer, that’s a red flag. You’ll want to hire a firm that knows what to do, what steps to take and can talk you through each stage with ease. 

Keep Pests Away

Pests are also a threat to the gate structure. Snails right along with small animals and insects often deal considerable damage to the electric board or panel. If you don’t clean your gate, that gives pests the opportunity to find their way to your gate system and compromise its function forever. You’ll want to always check for pests. Once you find them, toss them away. 

Do Routine Checks

Make maintenance a part of your routine. Have your gate inspected and checked regularly. That way, it’s easier to monitor the parts of the system. You can catch problems much sooner, too. And the sooner you catch those problems, the sooner you can ask for pros to come in and nip them in the bud. Make sure you hire a team of trusted pros to handle the routine checks. Can they perform repairs as well? What other services can they offer? What else do you need? Sort these questions out. Your answers will help you keep your gate in excellent working condition.
