You can generally expect a garage door to last you for a decade or two after you have a new one installed. And as a garage door company in Oakdale, we have seen our fair share of garage doors that were damaged or broken too soon. So here are a few tips on how to make sure your garage door stays in good working order this summer.
Be sure you inspect your garage door on a regular basis. About once a week, inspect the garage door itself as well as the mechanisms to ensure everything is working as it should. If you notice a part that is broken, frayed or worn through, call our garage door company for assistance. Many parts of a garage door, especially the springs, should only be repaired or replaced by a trained professional.
Make sure you give your garage door a little TLC by making sure you wash it on occasion. Just use warm water and a mild household detergent and a soft scrub brush or soft cloth. Keeping your garage door clean can also help you spot trouble with it, like if you notice it has sustained damage that you might not have seen otherwise.
You should also be certain that all of your garage door’s moving parts are properly lubricated. If you have experience, this can be a do it yourself project. But if you are unsure of the type of lubricant to get or how to properly apply it, call the professionals from our garage door company. We can take care of this task so you don’t have to worry about it, but you still get the peace of mind you deserve knowing your garage door is opening and closing properly and without doing damage to its various parts.
Finally, make sure you test the garage door on occasion if you don’t use it on a regular basis. Make sure the garage door opens and closes as it should. You should also test your garage door opener to make sure it is working as it should be too. Make sure it doesn’t need fresh batteries. And you can call our garage door company for assistance with automatic garage door openers if you need to!
