March 16, 2017

Most individuals and families neglect maintenance of their garage doors despite the fact that it is one of the most used doors in your residence. Think about it must have gone through a lot of wear and tear if it is used on a daily basis. Hence it should be maintained properly, however that is not usually the case.

Here are some useful tips which you can implement so that your garage door keeps working in perfect condition.

The Look Over

Do this on the weekend and check to see if everything is in order. This is one of the most basic things that you can do, and won’t take you a lot of time.  If you find any sort of irregularities check upon them and repair them as soon as possible.

Lubrication

This procedure should be done after every 4 months. The reason is quite simple. With continuous use the cogs start to rust and oil is usually required to ensure that the cogs keep on turning for a longer period of time.

Roller Inspection

Rollers whether they be Steel or Nylon, should be inspected every once in a while. They can very well be the difference in the proper functioning of a garage door. See if the door is going up and down without any hindrance.

Check For Creaky Noises

I previously mentioned that the garage door is the most frequented door of your house, and hence with time it is going to go through wear and tear. So if during your inspection you should hear some creaking noises call a professional to take a look at it. 

Properly Shut Your Door

A door left ajar is an open invitation to intruders, and can also inadvertently hinder the mechanism of the garage door. Hence always shut your door properly.
