Garage Door Maintenance

Periodic maintenance is essential, whether you have a manual or electric garage door. 

Here is an easy step by step guide to easy garage door maintenance.

Maintaining manual garage doors

If you have an up and over garage door, lubricate the spring mechanism. This will help make sure everything runs smoothly and avoid any damage being caused.

For the side runners/tracks, all you’ll need is some maintenance spray. Looking after this section will make sure the rollers run up and down with ease.

Run a damp cloth over the door itself to remove any dirt and grime to keep it looking its best.

Maintaining electric garage doors

Electric garage doors are virtually maintenance-free, but some maintenance is still to be carried out. The tracks the door slides up and down on still need a bit of a wipe to ensure they stay as good as new, and all this requires is a damp cloth.

With the door fully open, get your damp cloth and run it up and down the inside of the track.

Taking a few minutes each month to perform some maintenance on your garage door will save money on repairs or even a replacement.
