Garage Door Maintenance Tips From Above & Beyond Garage Doors

Make sure that your door's bolts, screws, and roller brackets are kept tight. The constant use of your garage door can loosen your hardware over time. Keep your door clean! Using an all purpose cleaner to wipe it down not only keeps it looking sleek and fresh, but also enables you to find cracks, rust, chips, and other flaws in your door. Addressing these seemingly small issues can prevent them from becoming expensive burdens in the long run. Removing debris and any blockages from your tracks will prevent misalignment and unnecessary malfunctions.

Moving parts should be checked throughout the year and lubricated. White lithium is great for the opener's chain or screw. Penetrating spray solvents like WD-40 or a citrus-based solvent are perfect for overhead springs, hinges, rollers tracks, and latches. Wipe a little oil on the torsion springs, and pulley's on the extension-spring openers. These simple tasks can prevent rusting, binding, replacement. Inspect the rubber weather strip on the bottom of your garage door for cracks and weaknesses. This is important for keeping not only the elements out, but pests, and dirt as well.

Probably the easiest on this list is to simply listen. Keep an ear out for odd noises like abnormal screeching and creaking. It may not seem very helpful, but being aware can catch future malfunctions or prevent existing ones from getting any worse. Look over your cables near the bottom roller bracket for broken strands and damage. You should never attempt to tinker with the high tension cables on your own, unless you have the proper knowledge and experience. This is because the force of these cables is tremendous and can kill you if they are handled improperly.
