Check out your garage door
Posted By MyGuy
Did you know that the experts recommend that you do a spring and fall maintenance
on your garage doors? A good preventative maintenance strategy is to apply
any light weight oil (Lithium Grease Spray or purchase GDL from your garage
door company) to the moving parts of the garage door – the rollers
and hinges – annually. There are end hinges with rollers, which
hold the rollers in the track, as well as center hinges. Lubricate all
pivot points to keep the door running smoothly.
Note: While lubricating, you should also check the garage door hardware parts.
With repeated use, the hardware on the garage door will tend to loosen
over time. This hardware holds a lot of heavy weight (the door), so if
you notice any loose screws, bolts or nuts, contact your garage door company
prior to tightening any hardware.
Garage door maintenance is often needed on the door opener. If your garage
door opener is operated by a chain or drive screw, apply the same lubricant
to the full length of the operator rail.
