The torsion spring is often the culprit of garage door disasters and is an unsafe piece of equipment to handle. It sits just above the door and winds up as the door is closed, placing the spring under very high tension. This creates a large buildup of pressure, and over the years wear and tear can damage the spring to the point where it can burst, forcing the door off the tracks to come down on you, your family or your property.
Even without the door coming down, do-it-yourself maintenance is discouraged as garage door springs are very dangerous. They are intended to lift large garage doors and the release of that tension on a person could seriously maim or kill them. Therefore, attending to these springs is best left to professionals who understand the machinery behind it and have the proper tools to handle it.
When to Fix?
If your springs sag or appear separated when the door is closed it is imperative to have them replaced as soon as possible because they are no longer retaining the tension it should be holding. The average spring life is 7-9 years. Be on the lookout for the hazardous signs within your springs mentioned above and leave it to the professionals.
