Garage Door Maintenance, Repairs and Parts

General 

With a regular maintenance program, your garage door will have a long life expectancy and will stay in good condition for many years. Just as washing your car is important for removing dirt and grime, your garage door needs to be given a regular wash to keep it looking in great shape.The effects of  ultraviolet light, atmospheric pollution, general dirt, grime airborne salt deposits will accumulate over time and it is essential they are removed at regular intervals. Cleaning should be done at three monthly intervals or at one monthly intervals in coastal areas within 1km of marine environments. 

Garage doors that are under large soffits, carports or are sheltered from any rain washing are more vulnerable to deterioration or oxidation than exposed doors. 

Rain washing or cleaning your garage door with water is insufficient as this will not remove salt and other deposits.
