Comprehensive Garage Door Servicing in Brisbane
The team are Correct Garage Doors are not only committed to providing professional garage door servicing in Brisbane and surround areas, but educating people about how to maintain their garage doors for optimal operational ability.
MANAGING YOUR DOOR
Colourbond and Steel Finish Doors: Your coloured steel door has been pre-painted with a silicone modified polyester formulation, which is one of the best paint films available today. However good a product may be, all exposed surfaces require some attention to guard against corrosion and any other harmful atmospheric effects.
For efficient garage door servicing of your colour bond and steel finish doors, we recommend washing the door with clean water and a cloth every 14 days. If your garage door is located in salty or industrial areas, more frequent washing is advised.
Cedarpanel: To keep your Cedarpanel door in optimal condition, WoodOil will need to be applied.
NOTE: Do not wash the automatic opener as it will void the warranty and could cause electrocution.
LUBRICATION (every 3-6 months)
Rolling Doors: Clean the internal sections of the guide tracks with a cloth dampened with mineral turps or methylated spirits. Polish vigorously to achieve a smooth, dirt and moisture resistant surface, allowing the Nylofelt to glide more easily. Do not use grease or oil on the guide tracks.
Sectional Doors: Should be cleaned as per rolling door instructions, but does not require polishing of the internal guide tracks.
Steel Hinges: Sparingly lubricate with an all-purpose machine oil, and lubricate wheel to axle bearings.
Plastic Hinges: No lubrication is generally required, however silicon spray can be used if necessary.
Springs: Wipe over with an oily rag.
Locks: Locks do not require special maintenance, however if the key becomes stiff a spray lubricant such as RP7 is recommended. Do not grease the lock.
Opener Chain: Lubricate with chain lube.
Lifting Cables: Check for wear by rubbing. If there is fraying or signs of corrosion contact Correct Garage Doors immediately. These cables are under extreme tension and should never be adjusted unless by an experienced professional.
Fasteners: Check all screws, nuts and bolts to ensure they are secure.
It is natural for springs to lose tension. Should your garage door become hard to operate or completely inoperative, contact Correct Garage Doors for a comprehensive garage door repair.
The spring unit is under tension at all times and should never be adjusted, except by us. No operator or other person should ever stand directly in the path of the door in its downward travel or walk through doorway while door is moving. Always use the door handle to manually operate the door. If the garage door becomes automatically operated, the pull-down rope on the door must be removed.
For more information regarding safe garage door services and maintenance, refer to the maintenance schedule in your garage door opener’s instruction handbook.
Beyond owner maintenance, it is recommended that your garage door be serviced by an experienced technician, every 12 months or earlier if required.
