Not only does cleaning your garage doors make them look more pleasing to the eye, it can help them run better. After all, it is very easy for debris to build up and this can cause your garage door to become jammed during opening or closing. Ideally you should give the springs, track and hinges a spray with WD-40 twice a year in order to ensure that they are lubricated. In addition to this, you should also use a washing up solution and a soft cloth in order to remove any dirt, dust, oil and grime from the surface of your doors.


Like any piece of mechanical equipment, garage doors require attention from experts in order to ensure that they are in full working order. This is especially important when it looks like they might be in good shape as it may not be possible to spot a developing fault when you don’t know what you are looking for and it may be too late to replace the component if you allow it to continue failing. Often garage door services are completed every 3 months on a schedule in order to ensure that any faults are found and repaired in a timely manner. When it comes to maintenance there is no room for error. After all, having your industrial equipment serviced is vital if you want to catch any problems early and reduce the amount that it will cost to have any repairs carried out. With their smooth operation and high quality, we are proud to say that our Hormann garage doors here at ABC Industrial are the Rolls Royce of the industrial industry!
