Garage Door Maintenance Service at Your Doorstep
Many people assume they need to be technicians to extend the life and beauty of their garage door. You might agree with the fact that replacing the entire garage door is expensive and, most of all, inconvenient. The good news is that there are a couple of DIY (do-it-yourself), stuff you can do to improve the performance, look and feel of the garage door exponentially.
Check the Rollers, Hinges, and Tracks
You should inspect your garage door thoroughly each year. Since garage doors have many moving parts, like a chain, rollers, Springs, etc. all of these should be checked for rust, dust, and damage. If there are issues, they should be the first ones fixed.
Tighten all Screws and Bolts
You should pay attention to all the moving parts in your garage door. Make sure to tighten all nuts and bolts that may appear to be loose. Usually, it is these small items in a garage door that leads to bigger issues. For instance, issues like a noisy garage door can easily be fixed by tightening all related nuts ad bolts.
Lubricate Moving Parts
The best thing you can do for your garage door is to make sure that all moving parts are well lubricated. It is an easy DIY job and does not cost a lot. Lubrication helps to lower the friction index, which extends the life of moving parts, by preventing them from wearing out prematurely.
A spray-on lubricant along with a rust preventer/removing formula like WD-40 should help keep your garage door running smoothly. Make sure to lubricate all the pulleys, hinges, rollers, and bearings.
Cleaning and Painting the Garage Door
To give the garage door a new look, you will want to remove all the old paint and layer a new one on top of it. You can also opt to thoroughly clean the garage door with detergent, which, if it isn’t damaged in any way, will also give it a new look too.
When painting, make sure to use the right type of paint. Most home improvement stores should be able to give you good advice on what paint to use.
