Is there anything I should be doing between your team’s visits to maintain my door?
The door should be washed with car shampoo or similar, EVERY TWO MONTHS, to prevent the build up of dirt, salt, and other corrosive substances. If the door is in an area prone to coastal corrosion from airbourne salts the door should be cleaned monthly. Furthermore, cleaning lifting gear with a cloth soaked in light oil will help to protect your door from corrosion - it must be accepted that salt air is very aggressive and extra care is required.
Ash, cement, dust, animal waste, or foreign substances should be removed immediately.
