Bi Fold Doors With Frosted Glass - As it pertains to keeping your home in tip-top condition, nothing can be more annoying than the usual sliding glass door that won't slide. In the end, what is the point of getting a beautiful glass door that leads out to some scenic backyard if the darn thing takes three NFL linebackers to slide it open?
The number 1 reason why your sliding glass door won't side is because too much dirt and debris have clogged the track of your door panel and the wheels up. This is not a difficult fix, but it is best if you have another person present to help you, because most sliding glass doors are very heavy. The very first step would be to examine your sliding glass door is fixed to the track.
It is possible to closely examine the track and also the wheels, after the door is on its side. Most often, you'll find the wheels are filled with debris and soot, and the path is also likely very grimy. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle tip pliers. Be careful to pull every last hair out of the wheel bearings. It is wise to be diligent in this step, which means you do not have to make a habit of this process.
While you are at it, clean up all the "mating-edges" of the door. This is where the sliding door and some other surface of the door frame meet. A general rule of thumb will be to just wipe down anything that looks dirty. Don't forget, even whenever dirt is not necessarily on the track itself, it may eventually fall to the trail causing your door to require another wipe down.
