For garage door maintenance and care tips, East Coast Garage Doors & Gates, your local Sunshine Coast and Brisbane B&D Accredited Dealer, offer great advice as well as professional installation, service and repair of B&D garage doors and motors.
All B&D colorbond steel doors do require some regular attention to guard against corrosion and the effects of sea-side and other atmospheric conditions.
We recommend weekly washing of your colorbond garage door with clean water and a cloth, or more frequently in salty or industrial areas.
Remember, when you think of cleaning your car… clean your garage door!
WARNING: DO NOT WASH YOUR MOTOR or ELECTRONIC accessories , as water damage will void your warranty and could cause electrocution.
B&D recommends that you check the operation of your garage door every three to six months (more regularly in extreme environments or if the door is frequently used). For an easy way to remember – East Coast Garage Doors and Gates recommends doing this upon the change of season (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring).
PLEASE READ THIS WARNING:
Garage door cables and springs are under tension. Never place your fingers near any moving parts or between the door panels when operating a door automatically or manually. No person should ever stand directly in the path of the door in its downward travel or walk through doorway while door is moving. Always use a door handle (if fitted) to manually operate a garage door. Never try to lift the door with the manual release cord/lever.
Test door operation in manual mode: The effort required to manually open and to manually close the door should be about the same (if door has an automatic opener, refer to our article to learn how to put your garage door into manual mode first). If not, it indicates a professional service and spring tension adjustment is required – contact East Coast Garage Doors and Gates to book your service.
