Though your garage door is made to protect your family and property via securing any entrance through the garage, it is also important to know that this is not like any other door in your house, and needs to become, treated differently. Your garage door is large, heavy, and can cause significant harm if not shown the respect it deserves. Here are some tips so you can have a safer life using your garage door.
In Case of Emergency
You may have a power outage at your house and may be in need of opening your garage. You should know where the emergency release feature located on your door in case such an occasion occurs.
Do not pretend to be Indiana Jones, in other words, do not walk, run or crawl under an opening or closing garage door.
Examine the Gears
Make sure the garage door moving parts become inspected monthly, and that everything is working correctly.
Watch Your Fingers
Always make sure your hands are free from any of the moving parts of the garage door. You may want to invest in a non-pinch paneled garage door to help aid in not pinching your hands.
Change Code Often
Like most codes used to protect you and your property, make sure your garage door opener’s code becomes changed and up to date. This will help prevent anyone from having access to the garage that should not have it.
