Garage doors accumulate dirt, dust, grime and other foreign debris from everyday use. And even if they are not used, they still get dirty, what with the outside elements that cannot be avoided. There are certain cleaning materials that can be used to make sure that the door remains clean and in good working condition.
To maintain the shine and luster of a steel door, use car wax to wipe on the door’s surface. Weather can lose the shine of a door, so it is wise to wax it every few months. Wax can also deter moisture and dust.
Whatever type of door you have, only use a soft cloth when wiping it. You do not want to damage your door’s surface by using a very rough and abrasive wiping material.
Glass garage doors can be cleaned with a mild household detergent and wiped with a soft cloth. Never use abrasive or rough cloth as it can scratch the surface of the glass. Scratched glass looks ugly, especially if it is full of scratches all over the surface. When rinsing the door, make sure that the detergent is properly washed off and wipe dry with another soft cloth.
Garage door maintenance must be done at least once a year to ensure that all parts are working perfectly. If you notice anything amiss in the operation of the door and you have no idea what to do, do not hesitate to contact our professionals for assistance. It is always wise to prevent damages beforehand. Cleaning the door is one way of making sure that it is in perfect running condition.
