The sky has turned quasi black as the fat, full of energy thunderclouds are ready to burst. Soon the lightning electrifies the atmosphere and lights up the entire area. But the sudden storm doesn't make you worried. You just drive down the road knowing that your garage opener remote is ready to serve you while your neighbors run to avoid getting soaked. Though, when you finally make it home, you realize that the remote doesn't work. It's either that or there is something wrong with the garage door opener. In either case, two things are certain. You wrongly bragged about your system and you haven't maintained it for quite a while.
During such times you can't help wondering why you canceled your appointment for garage door maintenance! Now you just have to get all wet till you reach your home, disconnect the opener and get the car in. You watch your next door neighbor driving into his home and his overhead door closes behind him smoothly. Yours is surely problematic and the only explanation is the lack of maintenance.

You can't expect miracles from such heavy systems and ignore completely their needs. We often wonder how calm there are still so many people getting hurt from garage doors and we don't stop to think that we ourselves might be potential victims if we don't finally fix the damaged door!
