Most people aren’t informed that regular maintenance pasting is necessary to extend the life of your sliding glass door and following a few common sense ideas will save you both money and aggravation. Here are a few things you should know about your sliding glass doors.
Sliding glass doors have many moving parts, and like all moving parts they have the potential to wear down and wear out. The moving parts of a sliding glass door are the rollers, wheels, locks and latches. The non-moving parts of a sliding glass door are the tracks, frame and glass. Debris and dust can build up in the tracks of the door and can make doors stick or even get misaligned on the track.
Here’s a short list of things you can do to keep your sliding glass doors in good shape for years to come:
• Use a loose brush or a vacuum attachment to loosen debris that may be stuck in the track of the door • Vacuum the track of the door on a regular basis to keep it free of dirt and dust • Use a nonstick silicon lubricant spray to make sure the door moves smoothly
Sometimes sliding glass doors can get in really bad shape and may need to be professionally repaired or replaced.
