Summertime and Garage Doors

When it comes to Florida, there is no other season that better exemplifies the very definition of the state than its summers. This is when we are given a time of the year that includes extreme heat and humidity, day-long thunderstorms, and week-long dry spells. With all of the weather extremes, it is not hard to see why many structural problems of your house tend to be created during this time of the year; be it the roof, wall, or foundation damage, the elements are almost out to topple your home.

Your garage door is no different, in that it will have to stand up to these very same issues, the only difference is the integrity of it. The garage door is not a solid form, but rather a device composed of several pieces on hinges. It is also the most substantial entryway to your house. It is because of this that you must make sure you maintain your garage during this time of the year. Let us share some tips with you to help increase your garage’s longevity in general, but will also make sure to defend it from the battery of summer extremes better.

 

3 Garage Door Tips

Cleaning

Though it may seem pretty obvious, we tend to forget about this essential upkeep task when it comes to our garage door. Seasonal cleaning will aid in making sure your garage door stays new and fresh. To do the job, look no further than the old reliable combination of soap and water, with an added waxing for those looking to have a really deep cleaning; this will also give you a chance to look out for any potential rusting areas, which will allow you to be able to correct the damage before it becomes more extreme.

Inspection

You will only be able to notice the issues that may be arising with a garage door that amateurs see. With that, it may be in your best interest to invest in having a professional inspection conducted by a company that specialized in garage doors. Unique Garage Door Services is just one of those companies and would be delighted in doing a thorough examination of your garage door.

Clutter Elimination

Reducing the amount of clutter currently taking up space in your garage will help aid in the health of your garage as a whole. Less stuff means less likelihood of a chance of something trapping moisture, of growing mold, of rotting, etc. Use the summer garage door preparation to remove anything that does not need to still be in there.
