It is ideal to perform routine maintenance over the spring season
After your garage door faces hard beating during the cold months of winter, it is only right to give it some tender love as the spring season arrives. Spring is the perfect time for a safety inspection to check for certain parts that could have been damaged or broken during the winter. Besides, it also comfortably goes hand in hand with spring cleaning the garage, so no better chance or time to take care of your door!
Keep the door groomed
Keep your garage door groomed. Wooden doors are checked for warp and water damage. Aluminum garage doors are checked for corrosion, while steel doors for rust. You can wash your overhead door regularly using the right cleaner. The door itself should be checked for dents, because it could lead to improper balance.
Do not lubricate plastic garage door parts
For lubrication maintenance, most of the moving parts can be sprayed with lithium or silicon. However, plastic-made parts, if there are any, should not be lubricated. Lubrication on these parts, such as the plastic garage door rollers and bearings, is not going to yield any benefit and may only damage the plastic material.
Maintaining your garage door opener
To properly maintain a garage door opener, the following should be included: a reversal test, force setting test, and evaluation of additional safety devices. The reversal and force setting tests are meant to ascertain the condition of the compulsory safety features. The evaluation of additional safety features entails the examination of the door opener’s photoelectric eyes and edge sensors.
