As the largest, movable part in your home, your garage door needs special attention in terms of maintenance and functionality. With a well-maintained garage door, parking and access to your home can be easier and more convenient. It also provides security and protection against the elements, while giving your home a boost in curb appeal.
Automatic Garage Door Company, your top choice for excellent garage doors in Cleveland, Ohio, understands the significance of a smoothly operating garage door system. A poorly maintained garage door can cause serious damage to both the home and homeowner. Keeping your garage door in good condition saves you from costly repairs or replacement. For this reason, we recommend these easy maintenance tips:
What To Do
- Take a visual inspection of your garage door. Look for signs of wear or damage in your garage door’s springs, cables, rollers, mounting hardware or pulleys. Check if there are fraying or worn cables.
- If there is dirt or debris on your garage door’s tracks that might catch your rollers, wipe or vacuum it off.
- Tighten and make sure that certain springs in your door’s mechanisms are connected. Make sure to lubricate the springs. These will clump up and jam the door system if dried out.
- Apply light lubrication to any bearings or hinges. For rollers, use regular engine oil. A drop on each roller will allow the rolling action to draw it into the bearings.
- Don’t use grease as lubricant, as it will collect debris that can gum the tracks.
When maintaining your garage door, there are some things you can do yourself. Nonetheless, it’s better to let professionals handle any issues you might have with your garage doors in Cleveland.
