Raleigh Garage Door Repair: Tips to Help Get Your Garage Clean and Ready for Summer!
Welcome back! In today’s post, our Raleigh garage door repair team is offering a few final tips for spring cleaning your garage! It’s a good idea to not only clean the inside of your garage, but the outside, as well. Debris and other objects can affect your garage door opener, as well as cause issues with your garage door tracking. The tips below will help you steer clear of any of those issues!
Cleaning the Drive and Walkways
When the snow is falling during the winter it often looks clean, however the salt and sand that is used to keep us from slipping on the driveways and walkways is not clean. Cleaning these drive and walkways off to remove the sand is a good idea. The sand can get stuck in your garage door track during spring winds and can cause real issues with opening and closing the door! Cleaning them also gives you a chance to see if there is any damage to the walkways that needs to be repaired before additional damage occurs.
Many people store their outdoor furniture inside the garage during winter. Spring cleaning and organizing the garage can help you get motivated to take the furniture back outside. It’ll also motivate you to clean the furniture, as well!
Besides cleaning the gutters, cleaning the walkways and other spring projects there is always a need for oiling hinges and locks to remove squeaking noises from your Raleigh garage door. The winter weather has a way of causing grime and buildup in your garage door components. You could even use the oil on the external doors of your home as well!
