Fall Garage Door Maintenance
The cooler fall months are the perfect time to prepare your garage door for the impending winter season. The heat has subsided and the air is not yet brisk. At Bluewater Garage Door Services, we understand the unique needs of garage doors, and we’re here to help ensure that your garage door operates smoothly during the fall and winter season.
Fall in the Florida Panhandle comes with its own set of challenges for garage doors. While humidity levels tend to decrease during this time of year, falling leaves and debris can still clog the tracks and sensors, potentially leading to operational issues. To combat these issues, we recommend the following fall maintenance tips:
We suggest you thoroughly clean your garage door, removing dirt, debris, and leaves that have accumulated. It’s also wise to lubricate moving parts to prevent friction and ensure smooth operation as the temperatures begin to drop.
As the climate changes, it’s essential to check the weatherstripping and seals around your garage door to prevent water intrusion. Inspect and replace any damaged seals, as needed, to keep your garage dry and secure.
Examine all the metal components of your garage door and apply rust-resistant coatings to protect against corrosion, this can be accelerated in Florida due to the amount of rain from the prior seasons.
Finally, inspect your garage door opener to ensure it’s functioning correctly and reprogram any remotes or keypads if needed.
