Raleigh Garage Door Quick Fixes
If your Raleigh garage door is beginning to act a little strange lately, it might be time for a quick maintenance check. While some issues are serious and need an experts help, there are a few quick fixes you can do yourself, before you call in the garage door repair team.
Check the Rollers, Tracks, Hinges and Latches
These components need cleaning every year or so. Take a stiff cleaning brush, brush the rollers and tracks to get all the dirt and grime away. Then, use a lubricant on all parts to help them move easier. Also lubricate the pulleys on the garage door extension-spring openers and bearings on the torsion-spring openers. These can get rusty so a little oil will keep them from binding up.
Garage Door Opener Maintenance
Sometimes, our Raleigh garage door opener is the culprit causing the problem. To make sure it’s working properly, lubricate any mechanical parts and make sure there isn’t anything blocking the sensors that receive the signal to open the doors.
Sometimes, the weatherstripping can cause the door to jam. If if the weatherstripping is pulling away from the door, try to adjust it. If it’s worn out, replacing the weatherstripping might be necessary to ensure that it stays in place.
Raleigh garage door maintenance should be done at least once a year to ensure that you don’t end up with an issue that isn’t easily fixed. Early spring is a great time to set your calendar for an annual maintenance check. That way, these quick fixes will do just that; quickly fix any minor issues. Fixing small problems can help keep larger issues at bay.
