The Importance of a Door Maintenance Schedule

Keeping your doors open and your business running smoothly is a fundamental part of any working environment but it’s surprising to see just how little attention is paid towards a very important issue – door maintenance. Whether you are running your business in an industrial or business unit, a factory or warehouse setting, you need a regular, professional maintenance schedule to ensure your business remains open and running efficiently whenever you need it to.

Seems like a no-brainer? It is a fact that a problem with an industrial door can severely disrupt an entire business operation and lead to significant losses of sales, especially if it’s the main door. Therefore it will pay you dividends in the long run to make sure that the task of Industrial Door Maintenance and Repair is performed regularly so that you can continue to run your business trouble free from interruptions caused by jammed or broken doors.


Here at sara Loading Bay Solutions, we fully understand how important it is for any business to have a regularly operation and maintained door. We’ve a wealth of experience maintaining, fixing and keeping industrial doors working efficiently so that you never miss a business opportunity because your door was not given the proper care it deserves.

Take a look at some of the reasons you should be regularly maintaining your industrial doors:

  1. Costly ad-hoc repairs are avoided

If you don’t have any door maintenance plan in place, you will require a potentially expensive repair job if your door fails. When maintenance work is carried out regularly, small problems are detected in good time and fixed. If these problems are ignored, sooner or later, you will pay for it.

  1. Reduced downtime

The last thing any business wants is to have to shut down operations to carry out extensive repairs to the main door. What makes it even worse is that it is almost always situation that could have been avoided if regular inspections and maintenance had been carried out. When small issues go unchecked, they always lead to bigger problems.

  1. Increased Security

A poorly maintained door exposes you to security risks such as break-ins and malfunctions. The best way to avoid this is to carry out repair work in a timely manner, ensuring you’re one step ahead of any potentially costly issues.

  1. Your doors will last longer

Replacing an entire door can be very expensive. Carrying out regular maintenance is the best way you can extend the life of your door for as long as possible. The repairs will be minor, and it will take a long time for your door to have to be replaced.
