How to Repair Automatic Garage Doors
by Sarah Crompton
The automatic garage door in your home will require repairs when it
begins to malfunction or does not work correctly. You can ensure that your
garage door continues to remain in good working order if you keep it clean
and properly maintained. There are also other factors that you need to
Scrub the surface of the door with a solution of dish soap and water. This can be done with a soft bristle brush or a car brush. You should clean your garage door up to four times each year. Regular washing of the garage door will prevent the build up of grime and other corrosive elements. Make sure that you do not use chemical cleaners that can damage components of the door. Salt used to melt snow will need to be kept away from the door to prevent corroding door components.
The moving parts of roller garage doors will need to be lubricated with a light-weight oil. This includes the springs, rollers, and hinges of the door. You will need to this at least once a year. The best type of oil to use is an oil that is in the form of a spray. If you notice any parts on your door that are loose, they may need to be replaced. The cylinder for roller shutter garage doors will need to have the rollers oiled as well.
