Got the loudest door on the block? Is your roaring garage door letting the neighborhood know when you’re coming and going? A noisy garage door is definitely a nuisance but we’ve got a quick fix for you!
Of course, just like anything else built of gears and moving metal parts, a garage door gets thirsty over time and with the ever changing weather in South Louisiana, the expanding and contracting of the metal on your door requires heavy lubrication. You will want to find a very heavy penetration oil. Something in an aerosol type can and you will definitely want to stay away from WD-40 ( this spray will actually attract dirt and may also drip on your car inside your garage). Acadiana Garage Doors carries top of the line lubrication for just this type of maintenance on your door and we always have it in stock!
What to spray? Any of the moving parts on your door can be sprayed down and you will want to pay special attention to the big, coiled tension spring located above your door. (You can not hurt the door with lubrication).
When to call Acadiana Garage Doors? Call us if you have any loose or missing parts on your door or if the noise does not subside. Also, if your operator was installed prior to 1993 it’s a good idea to see about replacing it with a newer model. Not only are newer models quieter, they also have more up to date safety specifications.
