How To Wash Your Garage Door

If you’re noticing dirt and dust on your garage door, or if it’s been a while since you’ve washed it, it’s probably time you gave it a good cleaning. The good news is that this is an effortless and quick task to complete. Simply brush all the debris and dirt off the door with a cloth (a broom works great, too). Then, wash it with a gentle soap before rinsing it off. The last step is to apply a wax finish to keep your garage door looking as good as new.

Here are some points to consider:

  • If you live near the coast, wash your garage door three times a year. Twice a year if you’re inland.
  • A spray wax works great to get to hard-to-reach areas.
  • Use a light detergent to wash the garage door. Avoid cleaners with bleach to other harsh abrasives.
  • Here’s a great video by Clopay to show you how it’s done.
