Add Smart Tools

Control Temperature Wirelessly

A smart thermostat is a great addition to any garage, allowing you to keep your garage cool in the summer and warm in the winter without using any more energy than you need to. There are several great models on the market, which you can set to automatically control temperature via an app on your phone.

Tips by Wollongong Experts on Garage Door Rust Removal

It’s important to remove garage door rust as soon as possible to prevent further damage. In this post, you will find some useful tips from the experts at Impact Garage Doors, leading providers of the best garage door repairs in Wollongong.

Best Substances for Removing Rust

A spoonful of baking soda in a cup of vinegar dissolves the rust on the door, allowing it to be easily removed. Scrub it away with a steel-wool pad soaked in this solution. You may have to scrub hard before you see any effects, but they will come.

Similarly, a spoonful of citric acid and half a cup of water can be combined to make an inexpensive rust removal solution. To eliminate rust, use a steel-wool pad, cloth, or soft-toothed brush immersed in this solution. This will also need some cleaning to ensure that all of the rust is removed.

After Removing Rust

After removing the initial rust from your garage door, it’s important to sand it down and clean it thoroughly to create a surface that you can either paint, repair or protect using a primer corrosion inhibitor. This will ensure the rust does not come back, providing you maintain the door properly. If you have a timber look garage door, you may need a professional team to restore the timber appearance.
