Garage Door: Springtime Maintenance

Spring is here! Before going out in the sun, have you thought about doing a good maintenance of your garage door? Springtime is the ideal season to do a great house cleaning!

Now is the time to refresh the exterior and interior of your house and wipe out the debris left behind by winter. Furthermore, a thorough inspection of your garage door is required, and here are some points to review:

Proper functioning: Forget about the electrical swing door opener and operate your garage door system manually. This way, you’ll be able to check the spring tension and the friction of rollers, if it applies. Also keep in mind that your door should easily be lifted with one hand!

Cleaning and lubrication: The mobile hardware parts should be lubricated with an appropriate product and the façade of the door should be washed using a mild detergent soap – without any high-pressure washer!

Security: Does your weather stripping need to be adjusted or replaced? Does the opening and closing system of your door make any unusual noise? A careful inspection of the automatic mechanisms is highly recommended for a safe and reliable use.

If you’re still unsure about the maintenance guidance, don’t hesitate to contact our specialists. They will help you through the maintenance process of your garage door – they might even offer you to do it themselves! You will thus be able to enjoy the nice weather more quickly!
