How to keep my sectional door in good nick?
Hereafter we offer you a number of tips on how to keep your garage door looking as good as new. A well-maintained sectional door will stand the test of time and will offer you the comfort you expect all year round. There are a number of things you can do yourself; others are best left to an experienced technician.
The following things you can do yourself:
Clean your garage door
Regularly clean your door, as you would your windows. To save you a lot of elbow grease, L-DOOR has developed Topclean but a regular all-purpose cleaner should do the trick just as well. Just make sure to follow the directions for use, whatever product you choose. Clean the door with a soft sponge or cloth only; never use any abrasive materials or products if you don’t want your door spoilt by scratches.
The following should be left to a professional technician:
Have your door serviced once a year
Just like your car, a sectional garage door has its fair share of moving parts. So, like your car, your garage door will also benefit from an annual service and having its moving parts greased. Rollers, cables… are subject to wear and tear and, over time, the spring tension will decrease. Obviously, everything will depend on how often the door is used. The one thing we can guarantee you is that regular preventive servicing will considerably extend the service life of your door. For that reason, most manufacturers will offer you the option of concluding a maintenance contract. Obviously you can also call on L-DOOR to ensure the annual service of your garage door. We can offer you maintenance contracts of 1 to 5 years, whatever the brand of your sectional door.
Mind: A garage door for professional use is classified as work equipment. By law, sectional garage doors for professional use must be serviced by a competent person once a year.
