Garage Door Safety Tips

Did you know that many people get injured every year by garage doors? It’s not a widely known fact, but it is true. Garage doors can be dangerous, especially when misused and not cared for properly. The good news is that Carroll Garage Doors is here to provide some garage door safety tips. Keep reading to learn more about what you can do to stay safe around your garage door and how Carroll Garage Doors can help.

  1. Avoid Doors in Motion
  2. This one seems obvious, but many people risk it by trying to outrun their garage door as it closes. People often successfully do this, but one mistake is all it takes. If you trip or slip and the garage door lands on you, it could cause a serious injury. Plus, if your kids see you, they might try to do it as well, which is risky. It’s always best to avoid entering or exiting the garage while the garage door is in motion.
  3. Test Safety Features
  4. You should also test the safety features once or twice a year. Check the automatic reversal system, the emergency manual release, and the motion detector to ensure that everything is in proper working order to keep you and your family safe.
  5. Perform Regular Maintenance
  6. It is also important to perform proper maintenance to keep your garage door in good working order and reduce the risk of accidents and injuries. You need to test the garage door balance, examine and replace the rollers and springs as necessary, replace weatherstripping, lubricate the moving parts, inspect cables, and examine the tracks. Only a professional can safely do this, which is why you should call Carroll Garage Doors for assistance!
