It is now a known fact that garage doors need timely maintenance and it's not the only thing in the world that needs it. Everything, in-fact we humans also require timely maintenance to keep going, a glass of juice or glucose to rejuvenate and a hot bath to remain free from germs and diseases. If periodic service is not conducted, a small garage door repair work now might turn out to be a big problem for future. In extreme cases it may require a complete replacement, if not handled well. There are always things that you could do on your own before calling the experts. Let's discuss how we can keep our door's trouble at bay in below pointers:

  • If the door of your garage is troubling while opening and closing, the problem might be with the track of the door. There are many obstructions like dust balls, small pebbles or other stuffs that accumulate with time and obstruct its way. Sometimes there are dents in the metal tracks that are not easily visible but they create trouble in smooth movement of garage door. You can eradicate those with the help of a hammer, but be careful not to hurt the metal track or door.
  • Noises especially squeaky sound is another common problem in garage doors. This is clear indication that there is shortage of lubricant. If ignored for a long time, the friction and the sound will only get worse. Apply a good lubricant not only on the metal track but also on the wheels and leave it for some time until it absorbs the oil completely.
  • Furthermore, the problem may be due to wrong alignment of tracks. This makes door to go off track. You can do the alignment setting task on your own. Don't unscrew the bolts of tracks completely; just do it partially and carefully tap the door till the time it gets into right position. For better results, use a leveler.
  • To ensure smooth functioning of your garage door, you should clean the tracks regularly to remove the old lubricant, dust and other intruders.
  • Check the lenses of the door, if the door opener is not working. Sometime, due to small dust particles or any layer accumulation, the sensors don't work; even spider web could be an obstruction.

Look closely for any flaws, and when you are certain that garage door repair work is beyond your control, call the experts.
