Cleaning garage door tracks
Never spray any type of lubricant on a garage door’s track as it'll simply start to collect more dust and dirt, impeding rather than assisting the smooth functioning of the garage door. Our advice is to simply wipe the track with a wet cloth and dry it. A WD-40 could also be used if you're keen to remove residue on the tracks, however, consult your user manual first for particular substances advised there.
Ask How Garage Doors Work to Learn about Maintenance Care
Garage doors mostly have two components: the door and the opener. But not all doors are the same. Some are run by the same mechanisms differently. To learn how to operate your unit right, ask questions during the installation process.
Fitting a Sectional Garage Door
Sectional doors are designed to be fitted behind the opening of the garage entrance and need enough headroom at the top. You also need to make sure that nothing dangerous is at risk of being exposed, like gas or electrical wires. Our technicians will be able to check the setup for you and assure that everything is safe.
Mount the wall switch above the reach of kids
Remote controls and wall switches or consoles must be placed where they can't be reached by children. This is actually one of the most secure ways to ensure child safety around your garage system. In our experience, it's also a good idea to educate your kids on the dangers of the garage door so they know it's not a toy.
Install safety cables
If you don't already have safety cables installed, it's definitely worth considering getting them installed as soon as possible. These components are installed close to your springs to prevent them from snapping and causing injury - they exist for a reason and come highly recommended!
Reconsider replacing your old garage door
Sometimes, replacing an old garage door is far cheaper than fixing the same problems over and again. The reality is that these systems don't last forever so if your system is at the end of its life, it is probably worth investing in a new system sooner rather than later.
How to solve your noisy garage door problem
Lubrication, weather-proofing and garage door maintenance can help to eliminate the noise your garage door emits by keeping rust and friction at bay. Excessive noise can also be caused by the opener you have - chain drives are significantly noisier, so it might be time to change your opener if you have this type installed at home.
