So, you have an automatic door opener at home. However, did you know that there is a way for you to extend the lifespan of your door? Yes, it’s possible. You just need to make sure that it is properly maintained. To help you out, here are some tips on how you can maintain your door opener.

Take some time to observe your doors

Everytime you use your garage door, observe it. Does it open and close smoothly? Does it create any unusual noise or does it operate silently? Are both sides of the door symmetrical? Observing your door would allow you to discover potential issues at an early stage.

Test your door’s balance

Checking whether your door is balanced or not is essential for if it is unbalance, then it means that your door needs to work hard to open and close and that would surely make your door more prone to wear and tear. So, with your door closed, disconnect the automatic opener release mechanism. Then, open it by hand and check whether you can open it smoothly. 

Inspect the rollers and tracks

Regardless of what material the rollers and tracks are made of, it is very important for you to have it inspected at least twice a year. In addition to that, it is also important for you to replace it with a new one every 7 years as a way of maintaining it. On the other hand, in case you have discovered any crack or chip on the rollers, you need to replace it as soon as you can.

Lubricate its parts

Lubricating it’s parts is also essential to ensure that your automatic door opener is in good condition. So. You can wither spray white lithium grease, lightweight household oil or anything that is mentioned in the manual of your door.

See if there is anything loose

Loose screws and bolts may lead to accidents and injuries. So, make sure that there is not a single nut, bolt or screw that is lose. In case you have noticed or seen one, then tighten it. Also, you need to make sure that you have checked all of it’s parts and that included even the minor ones.

Hire an expert

The last and yet, the best thing that you can do to maintain your automatic door opener is to hire an expert, especially during snow, when snow and ice build up. After all, it is still best to have an experienced eye inspect it for you. Not only can they provide you a diagnosis of the problems that have currently occurred in your door but they can also help you prevent problems that may occur in the future.
