People spend many hours cleaning their homes and personal stuff and, in fact, may devote hours to persistent stains and the purification of their personal spaces, but they rarely remember to clean up their garage doors. In fact, garage doors get really dirty because they are constantly exposed to elements and some of them may cause problems to the operational system.
Cleaning your garage door means securing your home
One of the main reasons we clean our houses is for aesthetic reasons or health purposes
The cleaning of a garage door is necessary because it is a matter of home security and part of the regular garage door maintenance service.
Start by checking the surrounding area of your garage. Over the years, you might notice differences on the ground or mold at some corners; you must take care of these problems.
Inspect your garage door for leaves, dirt or other elements that might endanger its mechanism. You don’t want to have problems with your garage door opener because of some leaves.
It’s time to check whether the garage door springs, the tracks, cables and other moving parts need lubrication. The garage door would slide much smoother after lubrication.
Check carefully the ground at the point the garage door closes down. If there are elements or other obstacles, your door would remain open even for some inches, but that would be dangerous. Thieves may take advantage of this small gap and small animals or even snakes can enter your private zone.
The last thing you ought to do is actually clean the garage door with soap and water. Use soft abrasives and sponges that would not hurt the surface of the door.
