Removing Rust From Garage Door Springs
First, we must tell you that garage door springs are under an enormous amount of pressure. They are extremely dangerous to work on and around. If you choose to attempt to remove rust from your garage door’s springs, do so with extreme caution and at your own risk. This should only be attempted on springs with slight rust. If springs are heavily corroded, consider replacing them instead.
Be sure to wear hand and eye protection before starting this process. First, using naval jelly or another rust solvent that is appropriate for garage door springs and spread a light coating over the rusted area. Let sit for a few minutes to allow for penetration. Next, use a wire brush to gently scrub away the rust. Afterwards, remove the rust solvent using a mixture of water and laundry detergent. Wipe dry with a clean cloth. Finally, spray the springs and other metal parts with garage door lubricant like WD-40 3-in-1 Garage Door Lube to prevent rust.
