How to Maintain Your Garage Door: The Complete Guide
Many people don’t know how to maintain their garage door, but it is actually pretty simple.
The first thing you want to do is make sure your garage door opener and the automatic safety sensors are working properly. If there are any problems with these two things, they will need to be fixed by a professional before proceeding.
Next, you want to make sure that the tracks are working properly. To do this you will need a flashlight and another person who can help lift up the door for safety reasons. Check inside of the garage as well to see if there is any debris on or under the track which might be causing it not to work correctly..
Keep checking your garage door every few months by lifting it manually at least four times so that it doesn’t freeze in place from ice buildup during wintertime. You should also lubricate all moving parts with an oil such as WD-40 or silicone spray once per year before storing them away for summer storage (or winter). The next time someone comes over they’ll think “wow, I’ll have my chance to see the inside of their garage,” and maybe someday they’ll come over to do some yard work for you.
Make sure that your garage door opener and automatic safety sensors are working properly before proceeding with any further maintenance.
Next, you want to oil the hinges of the torsion springs on your garage door so that they work smoothly and prevent rust from forming.
Finally, check for loose screws or bolts in order to keep everything running smoothly!
