When you’re on top of your home maintenance checklist, everything just runs more smoothly. You’re less likely to have major home repairs throughout the year. One of the items that should be on your checklist is your garage door. Here is how you should care for your door every year.

Lube Your Garage Door Springs

If you want to get the most out of your torsion springs and ensure that they have a long life, then you need to make sure that they are lubricated. Use garage door lubricant once a year to coat the overhead torsion springs. For wall protection, use a piece of cardboard when you spray the springs. While you’re lubricating the springs, you can also lube the hinges, track and rollers.
