Door Closer Repair Service
As a local business owner, you know the importance of great customer service. It begins the moment a customer walks through the door, so it's a good idea to make sure your door works properly. Door closer maintenance is easy to forget about, but it's crucial to making a good first impression, and the specialists at Glass Doctor¨ of Midland provide professional door closer repair and maintenance to ensure the safety of your door and all those who walk through it.
How Door Closers Work
A manual door closer is designed to allow individuals to open your door easily, without having to close it physically. When your door closer is properly installed and maintained, the user will feel some resistance while opening the door. Usually it is enough to get a sense of the door's weight. After the initial push, the door should glide smoothly open. Once the user has passed through the door, a spring triggers the mechanism's arm to swing the door gently back into the frame.
Types of Door Closer Repairs
Improperly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers
At Glass Doctor of Midland, our experts use specialized equipment to install and maintain your door closer, keeping it in good working condition and extending its lifespan. It is essential that only a trained specialist work on your door closer to prevent:
Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels
Broken seals are a common problem in door closers, creating gaps that leave hardware vulnerable and often lead to lubricant leaks. An oil leak requires immediate door closer repair, and may indicate a mechanical problem, such as a failed seal, missing screw or broken O-ring.
Always have a professional replace the oil in your door closer. Insufficient lubrication causes the door to open and close suddenly, which may cause injury to the user or damage to the door itself.
Incorrect Types of Door Closers
It's essential your door closer matches your door. A heavy door, for example, must have a strong door closer with tough springs. The incorrect type of closer may pose a safety risk and lead to door damage.
