Grinding metal not only sounds terrible, but it can also lead to a major failure of your garage door. That’s why having lubricant, ideally white lithium grease, is a top preventive maintenance tip for garage doors.
In your garage, look up and locate the opener screw or chain on your opener. Spray this with white lithium grease for smoother operations. Do this at least once a year for best results.
Overhead torsion springs and extension springs located above roller racks also need a good cleaning. We recommend using a cleaner or lubricant on them twice a year. After spraying, it’s okay to leave the excess on, because it helps your springs have a longer life by preventing some corrosion.
The importance of regular garage door maintenance means a safer, happier home. A good lubrication regimen can keep your door working properly so it doesn’t drop or stick unexpectedly.
