Celebrate Garage Door Safety Month With These 5 Garage Door Safety Tips June 12, 2015

Celebrate Garage Door Safety Month With These 5 Garage Door Safety Tips, Rochester, New York

Whether you use your garage for storage or as a man-cave where you continuously work on your car, they provide endless benefits. However, garages can also pose several safety and security challenges. In honor of June being Garage Door Safety Month, Rochester’s Tracey Door Co. would like to give you these five garage door safety tips:

Keep the Kids Away – Don’t allow your kids to play with the garage door opener controls. They should also never stand, run, or play near any garage door, especially when it is moving. They could easily get injured by becoming stuck beneath the doors.

Check for Wear and Tear – Be vigilant about checking the door springs for wear and tear, including loose brackets or frayed and worn cables. If any of them look broken, don’t try to remove, adjust, or repair these parts. Instead, call a trained garage door repair tech to make the necessary adjustments or replacements.

Strange Noises – If you notice an abnormal sound coming from your door, it may signify that there is a problem. Call a technician right away to inspect it.

Check for Visual Damage – Whether your newly licensed teen driver accidentally backed into the garage door with their car or you notice some parts that look like they need repair, it’s always smart to check your doors for visual damage. Be sure to look at springs, cables, pulleys, and rollers for any signs of distress.

Balance and Alignment – Ensure that the garage door’s alignment works when opening or closing it. You can do this by manually lifting and closing the door. It should operate smoothly with little resistance. If it is difficult to open or doesn’t remain open, the door could be out of balance and in need of repair.
