Don't underestimate the power of a good cleaning
Keeping your garage door clean will definitely go a long way in extending its useful life. There is another benefit of cleaning off the dust, grime and debris and that is, that during the cleaning you are in close contact with your door so you are in a great position to spot any minor problems that have yet to fully develop. Take full advantage of the situation and examine every inch of your door.
Clean your garage door tracks properly
These components tend to accumulate a considerable amount of dirt, especially if you have metal rollers which require lubrication. Keeping them clean, therefore, will help them perform better and will reduce the chance of accidents. Keep in mind that you should not lubricate the tracks themselves, as that can cause them to be sticky and accumulate more dirt.
Be cautious when you check your door
Even if you decide to check out the garage door and its parts, and not lubricate any of them, it's good to take some precautions. Consider wearing gloves, as sometimes we instinctively reach out and touch things that we wish to examine more closely. You should also wear protective glasses, just to be safe.
