Making Time for Garage Door Maintenance

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: DecorDoors

The garage door is the largest moving part in your home and is typically used daily. Over time, parts can wear, compromising the operation of the garage door and creating potential safety problems. Regularly scheduled maintenance before problems occur can reduce your overall maintenance costs and improve the reliability of your garage door.

Servco Raynor Overhead Doors recommends annual preventive maintenance on your garage door system. This includes inspection of the entire system; lubrication of all moving parts such as hinges, chain drive, rollers and springs; tightening all bolts and screws; inspection of limit switches, gear drive, cables, track alignment, spring tension, operator and safety eyes as well as the required adjustments.

Broken or worn parts should be replaced for the optimum smooth and quiet operation of the system. The homeowner should periodically clean the garage door panels with a mild soap (such as car wash or dishwashing soap) and water. Rinse thoroughly. This is especially important in coastal locations to remove salt build-up. Applying a good car wax to the door also will extend the life of the surface.

Servco Raynor Overhead Doors can set up an annual preventive maintenance program for garage doors to keep the system performing reliably for years to come. Call 676-3667 to schedule routine preventive maintenance if you haven’t done so in more than one year.
