glass door. Sunday , February 25th , 2018 - 17:50:59 PM
Sliding glass doors are so easy to use that a small child can open or close them without exertion. The roller system allows them to operate quietly, yet the locking system ensures that the doors do not come off their tracks. The doors can also be locked open or closed, with or without a key.
While you′re at it, clean up all the "mating-edges" of the door. This is where the sliding door meets with any other surface of the door frame. A general rule of thumb is to simply wipe down anything that looks dirty. Remember, even if the dirt is not necessarily in the track itself, it can eventually fall to the track causing your door to require another wipe down. If you notice any mating edges that feel sticky, take a paper towel and spray some oil into it, then wipe the oil onto the sticky surfaces.
Once the door is on its side, you can closely examine the wheels and the track. Most commonly, you will find the wheels are full of soot and debris, and the track is also likely very dirty. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle tip pliers. Be careful to pull every last hair out of the wheel bearings. It is wise to be diligent in this step, so you don′t have to make a habit of this process. Once the wheels are completely clean, spray a little bit of penetrating oil into the wheel bearings, spinning the wheel as you apply the oil. (The best choice for the oil is DuPont′s Teflon non-stick dry film lubricant.) It is equally important to clean the track that the wheels rest on. Use damp paper towels to remove the grit and dirt, and then spray the penetrating oil along the track so it is well-applied. Use a clean paper towel to ensure it is evenly applied.
