Let’s face it, most homeowners desperately want to help with the maintenance or repair of their garage door– I’m not sure why, but there’s just something about it that obviously appeals to them. Maybe they want to save bucks by doing it themselves or just a true DIY-er.
We really don’t recommend most maintenance items since they’re very specific and she be left to the professionals; and we certainly don’t recommend any repairs since they’re almost all ridiculously dangerous, which would also be left to the professionals.
But you know what the eager homeowner can do? They clean their springs.
Garage door springs collect a lot of dust, grime, and other stuff that can lead to premature failure. By keeping up on the cleanliness of your springs, you can easily extend the life of them, thus making your life a lot nicer!
