For a garage door to work smoothly and to extend the life of all of the moving parts on the garage door the hinges, rollers, pulleys and bearings should be lubricated at least once a year. By keeping a maintenance schedule of lubricating the garage door you'll keep the squeaks to a minimum and prevent corrosion. Stay away from using WD-40 since that can become sticky and collect dust and dirt. Use a silicone based lubricant like the 3-in-One Professional Garage Door Lube. It's a multi-purpose silicone formula that dries fast leaves no messy residue. It can also be used around the house on door hinges, stuck drawers, lawn mowers, gates and more.
