The garage door photo eye, often known as the garage door sensor is one of the most vital aspects of your garage door. One of the most common calls we get from customers is the fact that their garage door sensors are malfunctioning. This is often caused by an electrical malfunction, electrical short, or sometimes a malfunctioning garage door opener.
It can be hard to tell what’s happening sometimes. In our area, Washington County, Utah, better known as Saint George, Utah, dust and moisture can get into the photo eyes (garage door sensors), garage door motor, or rollers and cause major issues over time.
That’s why it’s important to have your garage door serviced regularly. Given the geographical area of Saint George and Washington County, we recommend having your garage door serviced at least once a year, if not twice a year. We’ll check your garage door photo-eyes for blockages, as well as lube and service your door while we’re there.
