Garage Door Maintenance

 January 15, 2018 |  Views:6 |  Posted by: Overhead Doors |  Reading Time: #BLOGREADINGTIME# |  Article Tags: 

Maintaining a garage door is important to ensure your safety and security as a home owner. This should be done once a month or so and can be done in four different ways. The first one is to test the balance, let it open and balance 3-4 feet open. If it stays open, it is balanced. The second one is to apply regular lubrication to the rollers, bearings and chains. The third one is to inspect and clean the springs and tracks. This could be as simple as dusting or vacuuming the area. Lastly, the fourth one is to test the sensitivity of your garage door. This means placing a 2 by 4 under the garage door and if it closes on it and bounces back open, the sensitivity is likely in good shape.
