Even though the garage door is the largest moving part of a home it is often the easiest part to forget to maintain. Annual inspections and quarterly tune ups are imperative for keeping your Mount Sanai garage door working like new longer. It's also important for early detection and prevention of ultimately, extremely costly repairs and potential replacements.

DIY Maintenance

Taking some time out of your busy schedule to do your own inspection of your garage can be very beneficial. Here are a few simple things you can do without the help of professionals to maintain your garage.

  1. Keep it clean. Using an all purpose cleaner to wipe down your garage door not only keeps it looking fresh, but helps in the early detection of cracks, rust, dents, chipping, and warping. Tackling a small issue early on can prevent bigger issues from arising later.
  2. Use a socket wrench to tighten loose bolts, roller brackets, screws, and nuts. The average homeowner opens and closes their garage door over 1500 times a year. That's a lot of usage. Small parts are bound to become loose over time.
  3. Test your reverse sensor features. If your automatic reverse sensors are not working properly, it could be as simple as obstructed view in the eyes of your sensors. Keeping them clean and free of debris is a simple way to maintain the safety of your system.
  4. Make sure there is no debris, or excess dirt on your garage door's tracks. This will prevent blockage and inevitable jamming.
  5. Check your weather stripping for damage and replace it if necessary. This element of your garage helps keep out rain, dirt, pests, cold, snow, and other elements. A broken weather strip can be a potential nightmare for your belongings.
  6. Lubricate all moving parts of your garage door with . Rollers, latches, pulleys on extension-spring openers, bearings on torsion-spring openers, tracks and hinges should be greased every few months to maintain proper function.
  7. Probably the simplest of all is to look and listen. The more you open and close your garage door, the more familiar you become with it. Listening for odd noises like irregular creaking and screeching can be a key factor in early detection.
