Now that spring has sprung, it is time to spring into action with some garage door maintenance. As you may or may not be aware, regular garage door maintenance is essential to ensure that your garage door stays operating as it should and lasts as long as it is intended to. Not sure where to begin? Keep reading to learn more about how to properly perform garage door maintenance and how Carroll Garage Doors can help.
- Look & Listen The first thing to do is really look at and listen to your garage door as you open and close it. Chances are you do not pay much attention to your garage door regularly, but taking the time to really notice it can alert you to any small issues that may have developed.
- Lubricate the Moving Parts Your garage door has moving components and it is important to keep them greased up. This won’t take you much time, just 15 minutes or so, but it can add years of life to your garage door! All you need is a spray lubricant and the instruction manual for your garage door and you can easily tackle the task.
- Test Safety Features It is also important to take the time to test the safety features of your garage door. Look at the sensors to ensure they are cleaned off and test the auto-reverse safety feature to ensure that it is operating as intended.
- Replace Weatherstripping You should also take a look at the rubber weather seal on the bottom of your garage door. If it is cracked or brittle, replace it. This will keep the elements, and critters, out of your garage.
