How to look after your automatic garage door
Regularly clean the door using soap and sponge to remove harmful chemicals. It is important to conduct a door balance test at least once a month to check if its still in good condition. Lubrication should also be done twice a year. If you hear any noise, tighten any loose nuts and bolts and apply a fresh round of lubrication.
How to Get Rid of a Noisy Door
A noisy garage door can be irritating, especially if it can be heard from a bedroom. To control the noise, make sure to lubricate the moving parts, including the rails, the rollers, and the ball bearings. Lubrication can help control the squeaking noise.
Don't leave your garage door open all the time
If you leave your automatic garage door open for long periods of time at a stretch, as well as presenting a potential security risk, its cables can start to strain and break more easily - we always advise to limit the time it's kept in the open position if possible.
