It is easy to forget about your garage door, but spending a little bit of time to look after it can actually save you a lot of time and money in the long run. Performing seasonal maintenance goes a long way in reducing the need for repairs and getting the longest lifespan from your door.
Here are some tips for regular care for garage doors:
- Get a professional inspection twice per year. Getting a garage door technician to come inspect your garage door is a great way to ensure that all components are maintained and working correctly throughout the year. An easy way to remember to schedule appointments is to book them at the same time that you are booking your seasonal HVAC maintenance.
- Keep sensors clean. Your garage door opener includes a safety sensor to ensure that the door will not close if there are people or objects underneath it. Check and clean the sensors to make sure they are not dirty or blocked, that way they will continue to function properly.
- Clean garage doors regularly. Giving the car a wash? Clean your garage door while you’re at it! Detergent and water are an effective way to clean debris from garage doors and helps to maintain the surface.
