Are you starting to go through a mental “to do” list of chores you want to get done before fall arrives? The colder months will be here before you know it! As a garage door company in Hennepin County, we have a suggestion on one more task you might want to add to your list – garage door maintenance. Taking the time to check over your garage door and doing a little work can save you money and hassle in the long run!
First of all, take a look at the garage door itself. If it needs a little TLC, take the time to clean it off. Use detergent, sponge and some water. Gently clean it with the detergent and sponge and then hose off the dirty water. Repeat as many times as you need to until the door is clean. Allowing it to air dry is fine.
Then go into your garage and take a look at the mechanical components. Do you see any broken rollers, cables that are frayed or rusty bottom brackets? If so, you might need to call our garage door company for some garage door repairs.
Look for any loose nuts or bolts too. However, make sure the parts they are attached to do not have any red or warning tags on them. If they do, do not attempt to tighten them! Call our garage door company so one of our experienced technicians can come to tighten those bolts or nuts. Sometimes, garage door part repairs are best left to professionals like us.
Then open and close your garage door. Are you hearing any squeaking noises? Lubricate your garage door’s moving parts with a silicone lubricant spray. (Never use WD40 or grease!)
