|The torsion springs (the springs above the door) should only be adjusted by a professional. Do not attempt to repair or adjust torsion springs yourself.
Old Springs - Your garage doorís springs are arguably the most important and most dangerous part of your door. Springs wear out. When they break, injury can result. If you have an older garage door, have your springs inspected by a professional technician and replaced if needed. If your door has two springs, both should be replaced, even if one is not broken. This will not only prevent any damage caused by the breaking of the second spring, but also keep your door working efficiently.
Loud Springs - Springs can squeak and be noisy. This is caused by normal use and does not necessarily indicate a problem. Before calling a professional service technician, use a spray-on lubricant (recommended especially for garage doors). If the noise persists, call a professional garage door installer for service.
WARNING - Springs are under high tension. Only qualified persons should adjust them.
Garage door springs, cables, brackets, and other hardware attached to the springs are under very high tension and, if handled improperly, can cause serious injury. Only a qualified professional or a mechanically experienced person should adjust them, but only by carefully following the manufacturer's instructions.
The torsion springs (the springs above the door) should only be adjusted by a professional. Do not attempt to repair or adjust torsion springs yourself.
A restraining cable or other device should be installed on the extension spring (the spring along the side of the door) to help contain the spring if it breaks.
WARNING - Never remove, adjust, or loosen the screws on the bottom brackets of the door. These brackets are connected to the spring by the lift cable and are under extreme tension.
Regularly lubricate the moving parts of the door. However, do not lubricate plastic idler bearings. Consult the door owner's manual for the manufacturer's recommendation.
The Old Bedford School
"The first Bedford area school met in a log building during the early 1860's. After the civil war, classes were held in a frame structure at Spring Garden north of this site. After it burned in the early 1880's, Milton Moore (1830-1914) deeded land here for construction of Bedford College, an elementary and high school academy. In 1893 it was also destroyed by fire and local citizens raised funds for a new elementary school nearby. It was replaced in 1915 by a 2-story brick schoolhouse. The school consolidated with the Hurst - Euless District in 1958 and the building was used until 1969."
A new benefit that Bedford residents can now take advantage of is free dumping privileges ten (10) Saturdays a year. In order to access the transfer station and Arlington Landfill, Bedford residents must present a driver's license or recent water bill proving their residency status.
The City of Bedford does not spray for mosquitoes. Instead, the City of Bedford places larvae "briquettes" in all public drainage channels and in other public areas where there is ponding water. These briquettes effectively kill all larvae for a 30-day period. There are several reasons we no longer spray for mosquitoes, all supported by the Tarrant County Health Department.
* The "adultcide" spray is toxic and requires that citizens be forewarned to stay indoors when spraying is being done.
* The driver of the spraying equipment must wear special gear to protect himself. The spray can seriously impair the health of individuals with chronic breathing illnesses such as asthma or bronchitis.
* It is common for such individuals to have to seek immediate medical aid if they come in contact with the airborne spray
* The spray is very localized and only is effective for a very few minutes. Spraying only kills adult mosquitoes that are active while the spray is airborne.
* There is absolutely no "residual" effect of spraying. Mosquitoes not killed by the spray can develop immunity that is passed onto the future generations, thereby reducing the future neutralizing the overall positive effects of spraying.
The City of Bedford is concentrating it's efforts in what is believed to be the most effective method to combat this problem. By placing the briquettes the City has a better chance of reducing the mosquito population before they actually become airborne.
