Learn how to adjust the door's travel limit
The overhead door must reach its full opening and closing position. It mustn't stop before or keep on going once it's already there. In case of the latter, the opener would hum. Adjust the travel limit by the garage door opener unit by turning the DOWN switch counterclockwise to close the door or the UP switch clockwise to open the door.
Do not share your garage door private information
It is well-known that a garage door is seen as a perfect target for many thieves. In addition to this, it is advisable not to share your garage door private information with anyone else except for your family members. Thus, you will manage to keep your house fully protected.
Do not apply too much lubricant
After proper cleaning, the metal garage door parts require proper lubrication. It is best if you use a silicone-based lubricant since its surface is not sticky and will not attract dust and dirt. Point the applicator towards the part that you want to lubricate and squeeze the tube just a little bit. You need a tiny bit of lubricant for each of the parts.
Use a citrus-based solvent for cleaning the metal parts
This type of solvent has natural active ingredients so it is safe for you to use on a frequent basis. It does an excellent job in removing rust and dirt in general. Our specialists recommend that you apply the solvent with care. There is no need to rub vigorously. Use a cloth to remove the dirt.
