Maintaining Your Garage Door
Here’s a list of things you can do to maintain the lifespan of your Door Smart WA garage door. Top tips for maintaining your Door Smart garage door:
- Tracks maintenance: Use a clean cloth and some WD40 (or similar product) to clean the internal sections of the track. Make sure to remove any dirt or moisture. DO NOT use grease or oil on the tracks.
- Steel hinge maintenance: Making sure to use sparingly, use a white lithium grease spray to lubricate the steel hinges. You can also use white lithium grease spray to lubricate the wheel to axle bearings.
- Spring maintenance: A small amount of white lithium grease spray should be used to spray along the length of the springs.
The following should be checked on a regular basis; however, repair or service to these parts should only be done by a qualified Door Smart WA garage door technician:
- Cable maintenance: Inspect every 3-6 months for signs of wear and tear. Any evidence of fraying or corrosion should be attended to immediately. The cables are under extreme tension and should only be adjusted by a qualified Door Smart garage door technician.
- Spring tension maintenance: It is normal for springs to lose their tension therefore we recommend that you regularly open and close your door to test the spring tension. If you have an automatic opener fitted to your garage door you will need to disengage it first. Now open and close your door, if your door is maintaining appropriate tension, it should require the same amount of force to open it as it does to close it.
