Hiring a professional commercial garage door maintenance professional can be costly. You can, however, learn how to do it yourself, thereby extending its life and saving time and money. The YouTube channel “ToolboxDIY” demonstrates how to perform garage door maintenance in a video titled “DIY Garage Door Maintenance | Save Your Money.
Begin by lubricating all moving parts on the garage door and inspecting each component for proper operation. As you tighten the hinges, check to see if they are secure, and then lubricate them.
You should also lubricate the spring, and you can use cardboard to prevent the lubricant from spilling all over the wall. Lubricate the pulleys to assist in reducing friction. Additionally, lubricate the corner bearing and the rail.
You must determine if the garage door can be opened halfway and remain in that position. If this is not the case, then check the springs. This can be a time-consuming process, and if you are unable to complete it on your own, you can hire a professional.
