How to Properly Lubricate a Garage Door

If you notice some screeching noises from your garage door, you should know it is time to have a checkup. Components including screws, springs, tracks, and hinges are made of metal, they need to remain lubricated. Understanding how to lubricate your garage door components can increase the longevity of the door. Also, you may want to schedule garage door repair services with Bob's Garage Doors. 

How to Lubricate the Garage Door

Choose the right lubricant such as the non-silicone lubricant like LPS2. Do not use WD-40 because it is a cleaning solvent and not a lubricant. Make Sure you avoid applying grease because it will create some stickiness that can be extremely hard to clean. Grease may also lead to a fast build-up of damaging debris in the garage door. You may want to contact us at Bob's Garage Doors for the proper garage door lubricant to choose. 

What are the Parts of Garage Door You Must Lubricate?

Many parts of the garage door will require periodic lubrication for their smooth operations. Make sure all parts are cleaned with a dry, clean cloth to remove the dust and debris. As you begin lubrication, get another dry cloth to clean up as you go, to avoid the excessive drip of the lubricant on the floor.  Once you are set with the right lubricant and clean pieces of cloth, you can begin lubrication with the hinges. 

Make sure you lubricate the hinges especially at the pivot points and do this only for the metal hinges. Do not apply lubricants to plastic parts, because lubricants can cause a total breakdown of plastic parts over time.  Apply lubricants to rollers, because rollers actually allow your garage door to travel up and down and if your rollers come with nylon wheels make sure they are protected during lubrication. Make sure you protect your floor and your car from lubricant drips by spreading some papers on the floor and driving the car away from lubrication area. 

Lubricating the springs is important, as a matter of fact, the garage door springs are one of the most important parts of the garage door to lubricate. The torsion springs are the parts that lower and lift the garage door, and when you lubricate these springs, their efficiencies increase as well as their lifespan.
