How to Celebrate "National Garage Door Safety Month


June is 'National Garage Door Safety Month' so how are you planning to celebrate?

The garage door has become the new front door for approximately 70% of homeowners with garages. During the summer months, kids are home and the warm weather makes people open and shut the garage more to wash cars, gardening, and hosing off driveways.

1 in 15 do not have their garage doors up to standardized safety regulations. Check for sensors that are not working and automatic reverses that do not reverse. This can cause injuries or death. The average of 3 persons die per year due to old and unserviced garage doors.

Does your door make a lot of noise when you roll it up and down? Clean the track and the bottom seal of the door periodically. Grease the track with spray made specifically for this or the grease from the garage door company.

So call your local garage door repair company and make sure your door is working properly.

You make a good point about bringing safety into the picture when it comes to garage doors.  So many of us don't think much about it until they either won't go up, or won't go down!

I definitely need to clean my track because it is really loud.  My husband's garage door is so quiet compared to mine, but is not used as much.

If you need to deal with the springs on the garage door, as part of your maintenance, make sure to enlist the help from a professional. The springs have so much pressure on them, that they could become lethal if they aren't dealt with properly.

Hi Adam,

I totally agree as I have heard it is like a bullet when they break and if a car is inside...well better call your insurance company. It is always important to call professionals.
