You can add several years to your garage door’s lifespan when you regularly lubricate the door parts. It is worth taking the time to do this as it prevents the door from deteriorating due to corrosion development. When left alone for too long, these issues can crop up quickly, and before you know it, cause a major issue that can be simply avoided with just a little extra care and attention.
After you have cleaned the door tracks with a lint-free cloth, apply lubricant (lithium or silicone based) to the interior of the garage door tracks and around the rollers. Also make sure to get any moving joints on the surface of the door. Once finished, make sure to wipe up any remaining lubricant as the moisture can attract dust and debris which can clog the joints and slow the movement of the door.
