Roller garage doors are largest moving part in your house. To help ensure that it offers you easy, safe and reliable access. It is important to keep door and bolt working properly. To start, put a drop of motor oil on each roller, which will bring oil to bearings when they move. Then lightly lubricate hinges and springs so system is less likely to get stuck. Manufacturers of garage doors suggest using a silicone lubricant or light oil for hinges, springs and chains. But should not be apply to plastic parts.
Providing a regular visual inspection of springs, rails and other parts of roller garage doors is a good way to help prevent malfunction due to wear and tear. Unfortunately, there is no way to know how long springs last. But if you do a monthly inspection it is easier to detect problems. If springs are still in good shape, an older child should be able to open door manually when it is disconnect from engine.
To keep tracks of roller garage doors, check them every month. And clean or vacuum any residue that may be in way of rollers. It also checks if they are align (in parallel with each other) to avoid wheel drag. Which can cause premature wear, says Washington Post. If you notice that rails are out of alignment, we recommends loosening screws in rail brackets, straightening rails and then tightening screws again.
