Regularly Maintaining Your Garage Door Springs
Regularly Maintaining Garage door springs are under high tension, and improper tension can affect the door's performance and pose safety risks. Tension adjustment should only be performed by experienced professionals who have the necessary tools and expertise. They can ensure that the springs are properly adjusted to provide the appropriate counterbalance for your garage door. Proper lubrication is essential for the smooth operation of your garage door springs. Apply a silicone-based lubricant to the springs, hinges, rollers, and other moving parts. This helps reduce friction and prevents premature wear. Test the balance of your garage door regularly. Disconnect the automatic opener and manually lift the door halfway. If the door stays in place, it is properly balanced. If it moves up or down, it may indicate an issue with the springs. In such cases, it's advisable to consult a professional technician for adjustment or replacement.
