Essential Maintenance Tips for Garage Doors

Home / Blog / Essential Maintenance Tips for Garage Doors

Here at On Track Garage Doors, we view garage doors as crucial extensions of people’s homes and businesses. Business owners and homeowners alike rely on garage doors every day, but many folks don’t seem to know what they can do to help make their garage doors last as long as possible.

Essential Maintenance Tips for Garage Doors

In this blog, our technicians would like to take some time to share a couple essential maintenance tips for your garage doors. Consider adding these simple steps to your home or building maintenance plan to keep things running smoothly.

  • Do a Visual Inspection: Every month, take a couple minutes to examine the different components of your garage doors. Keep an eye out for signs of wear and tear, damage, or dents. Catching these issues early can save you from costly repairs later.
  • Test Safety Features: Modern garage doors have sensors that can detect if something is underneath a closing garage door. To ensure that your sensors are working properly, place an object in the door’s path while it’s closing. If it’s functioning properly, it should stop and reverse direction within a safe distance of the object.
  • Tighten Hardware: The bolts and nuts that make up your garage door system can loosen due to the vibrations of your door opening and closing. Use a wrench to occasionally tighten up these components and ensure everything remains secure.
  • Schedule an Annual Inspection: One of the best ways to prevent issues with your garage doors is to schedule an annual garage door inspection from a skilled technician. They’ll be able to carefully assess the condition of your garage door, make any necessary repairs, and give you more tips on how to keep your garage in great shape.
