As you may already know, lubrication is vital to the health of your door. Multiple parts in the system require frequent lubrication, and this is obvious as the door is usually the largest moving mechanism in your home. The tracks, hinges, rollers, and springs all require regular lubrication to remain in proper working condition.
Get Rid of the Noise
Few things are as irritating as a noisy garage door. Hearing that screeching sound every time you leave for work or you come back home can easily get on your nerves. Moreover, you don't want to be that neighbor with a screeching door that the entire street hates. With regular lubrication of all the essential components, it's actually easy to get rid of this problem and enjoy a quiet operation every time you open and close it.
Extend the Door's Lifespan
Regular lubrication of the hinges and the rollers keep your door running smoothly while also extending its lifespan. Just a light coating of WD-40 every three months is enough to keep your door running just like new. If you are not sure what kind of products to use, ask for specialist help as it is vital to avoid harmful products. For example, WD-40 shouldn't be used on opener parts. You can consult with the user's manual or simply give our experts a call – we are always happy to help!
By washing away seasonal grime with a mild detergent and rinsing thoroughly with clean water, followed by lubrication, you can keep rust away from the system. Keep in mind that you should always use lubricants that are suitable for your type of door, and avoid using rust cutting oils for example, because these are not actual lubricants even though they do a good job at eliminating rust.
