Tip & How-To about Building Materials
Have you ever been worried after a heavy rain that rust will derail your garage door? I know I have. There are a few things you can do to maintain your garage door and one of the most important things is keeping it rust free. After a storm, once the door and the tracks it runs through have completely dried, take an old towel and clean out any residue that may have gathered in the track. This could be dust, pieces of leaves, spider webs, rust flakes etc. After you've cleaned it out, take a can of WD-40 and spray a generous amount on every inch of the track, including the parts that are inside and not open to the elements. You don't need to wipe it down afterwards because the WD-40 acts as a lubricant for the door and also prevents rust from building up in the future. I recommend doing this once a year to help maintain your garage door and to prevent annoying squeaking every time you open and close it.
