Tips for Thoroughly Cleaning a Garage Panel


How to Clean a Grimy Looking Garage PanelNo one likes a dull garage door panel. If your garage door looks like its seen better days, this blog post is for you.

Over time, it’s normal for the panel on your garage to lose its color. This is often a result of years of dust and grime buildup combined with the fading of paint and protective coatings. If you’re not quite ready to buy a new garage door, then cleaning the panel is your next best option.

Fortunately, restoring that “like-new” look doesn’t have to be expensive nor time-consuming.

The key here is to use gentle non-abrasive cleaning soaps like a mild dish detergent or vinegar along with warm water. Using a soft brush or cloth, gently wipe down your entire panel. Once you’ve wiped down the panel, spray it clean with a hose and allow it to air dry. For more difficult stains, you may need to repeat this process again.

The Dangers of Fixing a Broken Garage Door Spring Yourself

You can learn how to do pretty much anything on the Internet. But like sword swallowing or lion taming, some jobs are best left to the experts. Garage door spring repair definitely falls into this category. These springs are under an incredible amount of tension. The springs are tightly wound to be able to lift the heavy door up and down with ease. If they break or are suddenly released, the force is strong enough to cause serious bodily damage and even death. This is especially true of older doors, usually, the very springs that are ready to bust. Give us a call. We’d be happy to fix it safely and effectively.
