Front Door Frosted Glass Panels - When it comes to maintaining your home in tip-top condition, nothing can be more annoying than a sliding glass door that won't slide. In the end, what is the purpose of getting an attractive glass door that leads out to some picturesque backyard in the event the darn thing requires three NFL linebackers to slide it open?
The number 1 reason why your sliding glass door won't side is because too much soil and debris have clogged up the wheels and the path of your door panel. It is best if you've got another person present to assist you, because most sliding glass doors are rather heavy, although this is not a difficult fix.
You are able to carefully analyze the track as well as the wheels once the door is on its side. Most often, you will find the wheels are filled with debris and soot, and also the track can be probably quite dirty. 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-borders" of the door. This is where the sliding door meets with any other surface of the door frame. A rule of thumb of thumb would be to just wipe down anything that seems dirty. Don't forget, even whenever soil is just not always on the course itself, it may eventually fall to the path causing your door to need another wipe down.
