Overhead Door Company of Tampa Discusses Maintenance for Your Garage Doors in the New Year

Overhead Door Company of Tampa recommends inspecting and lubricating your garage door system as the year changes.

    TAMPA, FL, January 13, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Proper maintenance of your garage doors will keep them operating throughout 2014 and beyond. Overhead Door Company, an installer of residential and commercial overhead doors in Tampa, knows that this maintenance can be a simple process that most homeowners will be able to perform themselves.

Garage Door Upkeep Checklist

The first step in maintaining your Tampa garage doors is to inspect the hardware and moving parts for signs of wear and for broken parts. You will need to use a ladder to perform this inspection fully.

If you find any damage or wear, you will need to call a professional garage door installation team to replace the worn down or broken parts. Overhead Door Company warns that some of the parts of a garage system can be under extreme pressure and they can cause injury if you do not handle them correctly.

Once you have inspected your entire garage door system for issues, you will need to lubricate all of the moving parts. This includes the combination hinge, rollers, the hinges on your door panels and the lock mechanism on the door. The Tampa overhead door experts recommend that you use a high quality, aerosolized lubricant that is designed specifically for garage doors. Your owner's manual may offer specific information about the lubricant to use.

"Really, keeping your garage door operating well once it's been professionally installed is very easy," says Bob Briesacher, President of Overhead Door Company. "We recommend that you take steps to maintain your garage door a minimum of once a year. The changing of the year is an easy date to remember, so that's when I like to inspect my own garage."
