Components need lubrication
Most garage door parts are made of steel and even if they are galvanized, they will need lubrication. Lubricants help them slide well when they move and protect them from erosion. The noises are eliminated and they will last longer. It's also vital to lubricate the opener chain.
Problems emerge when garage door parts are not repaired on time and properly. The door must be balanced and the opener system checked. These are the main rules for the avoidance of problems according to our experts. Taking good care of the garage door will also help you avoid injuries.
Disconnect the opener before repairs
If you decide to repair garage door parts or even inspect them, remember the importance of disconnecting the electric opener first. This way, you can check and fix your overhead door without worrying that someone will activate the opener without you knowing it and you'll also avoid electrocution.
Be sure that you use the right lubricant
Not every lubricating product can be used on the door on your garage. Our garage door maintenance specialists advise against the use of grease and used motor oil. The recommended lubrication is silicone-based spray. The non-staining white lithium grease is also great for lubrication maintenance as it does not run off and is highly effective in friction reduction.
