Info & Tips

CLEANLINESS IS KEY
Durban Door Services recommend that you regularly clean garage doors, The more regularly you clean garage doors, the more money you will end up saving on repairs. Use a mild detergent to remove corrosive chemicals and dirt especially around the cables and springs. This will allow you to monitor their condition very carefully.

DO CLEAN CABLES AND SPRINGS, DON'T SERVICE OR REPAIR THEM!
These systems are under extreme tension and pressure, and an injury can occur in the blink of an eye. Only a qualified professional should work on them. This is an essential safety tip.

SAFETY TIP
If your garage door is damaged, even only slightly dented, it is still very important to seek professional assistance. An operating system may be damaged which will cause premature wear, and result in a dangerous environment later on. Always ensure that the safety of your work staff (if your garage door is an industrial one), or your family at home (if you have automated garage doors at home) comes first.

ANNUAL INSPECTIONS


CHECK ALL BOLTS
While we strongly encourage you to leave repairs and service to professionals, you can check all the bolts, nuts, screws, springs and cables. If something is loose, tighten it. These parts are responsible for allowing the doors to move smoothly.

USE THE RIGHT CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE PRODUCTS
Never use grease on the runners or tracks, it encourages the build-up of dust and dirt. A grease lubricant can be used if the garage uses a door chain, only on the chain. Instead, use a light spray with WD-40 or Q-20 on the other parts.

SAVE YOUR DOORS, SAVE YOUR MONEY
Remember that performing these basic checks can save you money and time, whether it is in your business or at home. By delaying or avoiding these inspections you may end up having to replace valuable parts, like the motor, the torsion springs or even the entire system!
