Routine commercial door maintenance

The best approach is to establish a schedule for routine automatic door inspection and maintenance and to stick to it. This will make sure that your automatic door keeps functioning properly and safely. 

A daily safety check on your automatic door systems will reduce the risk of a malfunction. With a daily checkup you will notice if the door gets more difficult to open, makes more noise or moves too fast or too slow. When a visual inspection shows that something is changing then it is time to call on Advanced Door Service!

Our clients get a detailed maintenance plan based on their particular situation. Here are some of the routine maintenance activities we recommend to keep automatic sliding doors, swing doors and revolving doors running smoothly:

Lubricate moving parts 

Automatic Door Maintenance ADS

Keeping moving parts such as hinges lubricated is key to keeping your doors working smoothly. Regularly lubricate all metal moving parts, but don’t lubricate plastic parts.

Visually inspect tracks

Check the tracks of sliding doors and make sure the door can run freely. 

Weather Stripping

Weather stripping around a swing door or revolving door forms a barrier for temperature difference. If you notice draft from the door even when it’s closed, then the weatherstripping will likely need to be replaced.

Lock Latch and Strike Alignment

Swing doors have a latch and strike which need to be well aligned so that your door forms a tight seal. 


The threshold under your swing door should remain tight so that the elements and rodents are kept out. When the threshold changes then it’s time to call a technician.
