Interior Bifold Doors With Glass Inserts - When it comes to keeping your house in tip-top condition, nothing can be more annoying than a sliding glass door that will not slide. In the end, what's the reason of having a lovely glass door that leads out into a scenic backyard if the darn thing takes three NFL linebackers to slide it open?
The number 1 reason your sliding glass door will not side is because too much soil and debris have clogged up the track of your door panel and the wheels. This is not a difficult fix, but because most sliding glass doors are quite heavy, it is best if you have another person present to assist you.
Once the door is on its side, you'll be able to closely examine the wheels along with the track. Most commonly, you will find the wheels are full of soot and debris, and also the path can also be likely really grimy. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle point pliers. Take care to pull every last hair out from the wheel bearings.
While you're at it, clean up all the "mating-edges" of the door. This really is where the sliding door and any other surface of the door frame meet. A general rule of thumb is always to just wipe down anything that seems dirty. Remember, even whenever soil is not necessarily on the course itself, it may fall to the trail causing your door to need another wipe down.
