Garage Door Safety and Security is Critical

The garage door is typically the largest moving object in your home. Properly maintained and operated, the door and its operating system allow you, your family, and your vehicles convenient access to and from your home. They also provide security, protect against the elements, and newer, insulated garage doors even help save energy.

But, moving garage doors can also cause serious injury, or even death. While there are some garage door system maintenance chores that you can – and should – perform yourself on a regular basis, there are other tasks (including installation and spring replacement) that are best left to the pros. This regular maintenance ensures your doors and their operating systems are working properly and that also provides you the piece of mind to know that it is safe for you and your family.

If you have children, you should take some time to teach them that the garage door and its operating system are not playthings, nor are they to be used casually. They must know that garage doors are machines that have to be used for their intended purpose in order to keep running smoothly for years to come. After all, the safety and security of your family is paramount.
