Lubrication: all pivot points should typically be lubricated monthly.
Door Balance/Spring Adjustment: garage doors should be inspected periodically for proper balance. If the door is electrically operated, the operator should be disconnected per the manufacturer's instructions before testing or adjusting the balance of the door. Springs must be adjusted with the door securely propped in the open position.
Visual Inspection: The hardware and the door should be inspected regularly for signs of excessive wear, rubbing or binding which can be an indication of damaged or maladjusted hardware.
