DIY Garage Door Maintenance Tips
Listen for Unusual Noises
If you notice your garage door makes screeching or grinding noises as it operates, it’s a sign that your garage door parts are not properly lubricated or tightened. As the parts rub together, it causes them to wear down more quickly and may lead to an emergency garage door repair as parts fail. So always schedule a garage door tune-up quickly if you notice any unusual noises as your door operates!
Visually Inspect Your Door
Along with listening as your door operates, we also recommend visually inspecting your door regularly for worn-out parts, rust, or shaky operation. These are all signs that your garage door may fail suddenly, leaving you stuck inside or outside the garage door.
Clean Your Garage Door
Dust and debris accumulating inside and outside your door can cause your garage door parts to get clogged up and malfunction. That’s why we recommend regularly cleaning your garage door exterior with a mild detergent and soft bristle brush. This will keep your garage door and your home looking great!
How often should you have garage door maintenance?
Garage door maintenance should be part of your annual spring and fall home improvement projects. Before especially hot or cold weather sets in, you want to ensure your garage door parts are in the best shape possible to see you through the season without any issues.
What is a door balance test?
It’s important to perform a door balance test for your garage door to ensure that it’s functioning properly. During this test, your garage door opener is turned off, allowing your garage door springs to hold the weight of the door. If your garage door springs are worn out, the door will not stay in place, which can be dangerous and cause the door to fall quickly. If your garage door is properly balanced, then the door should stay in place with the springs holding it up.
