Your sliding door may not operate smoothly if the tracks and rollers are not cleaned and lubricated regularly. In the long run, this can lead to early damage of your sliding door, which would then involve repair or replacement expenses.
To maintain the great condition of your sliding door, you can clean it using two methods – a thorough way and a quick way. The thorough method of cleaning should be done at least once a year to properly maintain your sliding door tracks and rollers. This entails removing the screen first, if there is one, followed by removing the sliding doors for cleaning and lubricating. The quick method can be done during your regular monthly or weekly cleaning without the need for removing your screen and sliding doors.
Check out a step-by-step and illustrated guide on properly cleaning and lubricating your sliding doors – both the thorough and quick ways – here.
