However, Door Number One warns homeowners to take the proper precautions when they're doing the maintenance themselves. Any mistake can worsen the damage, and homeowners may even hurt themselves when they're not careful.

"And if they want to do the Maintenance of garage door in Maple Ridge and decide to do it themselves, at the very least they should make sure that their garage door machine is unplugged."
Lubricating the door is one of the easiest maintenance tasks that a homeowner can do themselves. While there are several good options for the lubricant, most garage door manufacturers recommend the use of motor oil.
"Some of our clients prefer to use silicone while others swear by WD-40," reveals Olusfon. "We just warn them about not using any kind of grease, as grease turns hard when it gets cold and it also attracts dirt and dust that can jam up the rollers."
All the homeowner needs to do is to spray a little bit of lubricant on the springs, rollers, and tracks. They can then use liberal amounts of lubricant on the drums. They should then manually run up the door up and down a few times to lubricate the cables. The operator rail can also benefit from a little bit of lubricant, but the vehicle should be kept out of the garage for a time so that the lubricant doesn't drip on it.
"Homeowners can also check the balance of the doors, but they should never pull the manual release cord when the door is in the up position," warns Olusfon. "They can also look at the hinges of the garage door to check for loose screws."
Homeowners can also check and do some maintenance on the safety sensors and the force sensitivity. The precise instructions for Garage door maintenance in Maple Ridge are freely available at the Door Number One website.
