Garage Door Safety Tips

Garages are an essential addition to any home.  They’re a great place to store tools, home projects and protect your vehicles from the outside. But, it’s important that you and your family are aware of how to stay safe around garages and garage doors, because they do pose a potential for danger.

  1. The garage door remote isn’t a toy, so children should not be playing with it. Also, make sure the garage door remote is out of reach of small children so it stays out of their hands.
  2. Never walk under a door when it’s in motion as this could cause a fatal injury. Many people tend to duck under the door quickly as it’s closing and don’t think twice about the potential harm this could cause.
  3. It’s important to give your door a monthly inspection to ensure things are working smoothly and properly. Be sure to check the springs, the door itself and the pulley system to make sure everything is safe and secure.
  4. For regular maintenance, use a trained professional at least once a year. They can address issues immediately before they get too bad. With regular maintenance, you can be sure that your garage door will continue to work like new.
