Learn how to deal with common garage door related issues and how to take better care of your system and its various parts.
Check the garage door hinges and tracks for loose bolts regularly
You need to pay special attention to the bolts holding the garage door panels to the hinges and also the ones holding the tracks in place. If you find loose bolts, tighten them immediately. If there are missing ones, have them replaced as soon as possible.
Always remember to unplug your opener
Accidents can always happen. That's why we should take as many precautions as possible. Whether you are simply performing routine maintenance or are involved in some minor repairs, it is always advisable to unplug your opener before starting to work - when the door is fully closed of course. If someone unknowingly activates the opener, your door won't respond.
Do not lubricate the door's tracks
Our experts suggest that you don’t have to apply lubrication to your door tracks. A thorough cleaning will suffice for their maintenance. Lubrication does not improve the movement of the door panel so it is unnecessary, and in fact, can have the opposite effect. It can make sticky dirt accumulate which will effectively hinder the panel's movement.
