United Garage Door Repair Service Lists What Garage Door Parts Need Lubrication Maintenance

Garage Door Hinges: When you are looking at your garage door most people have a paneled door. That means that there are panels that make up the look of the door. There will be gaps between each of the pieces that is very slight. The great thing about this type of door is that it can open without using too much space. That does mean that it needs to be held together with hinges. The panels will each have several hinges that hold it to the panel on either side. The hinges are there to allow the panels to shift when it rolls up. That is why you want to make sure that the hinges are kept lubricated to allow them to move well.
Garage Door Chain: Regular maintenance of a chain driven garage door opener includes lubricating the chain and greasing the chain rail. It’s important to know the correct type of lubricant for the chain and grease for the rail as spray lubricants often attract dust and contain solvents that break down grease on the rail. Also using too much grease on the rail builds up and can result in dripping on your car and/or the garage floor.
Garage Door Rollers: When you open the door you click a button on your remote. Then door will start to open or close as long as the moving parts are working. One of the aspects of the door moving are the rollers. The rollers are attached at either side of the door along the edge of the panel. The rollers should be moving along a track and they need to be able to rotate. That is why it is a good idea to add lubrication to the rollers as well.
Garage Door Tracks: The rollers will only work if they are able to move through the tracks. The tracks are part of the system that will allow the door to open and close. The tracks need to be kept clean of debris but it is also a good idea to have them lubricated as well. This will make sure that the rollers have a nice sleek path to travel along. The lubrication is part of what the track needs as well as level and balance.
