With all the spring cleaning chores to do on your list, it’s easy to ignore your garage door. However, by paying a little attention to it, you can help avoid costly repairs down the road.
Start by inspecting your door for any visible signs of damage. Make note of any rust you see, split cables, and missing or loose nuts and bolts. If you find any rust, scrub it off with a rust removal solution. Operate the door and listen for any unusual noises.
Add a light coat of lubricant to any mechanical moving parts of the door, including your springs and rollers. If you notice any issues you’re not familiar with, feel free to talk with your local garage repair company for assistance.
