Salt Lake City Garage Doors
Do you have a safety plan in place in regards to your garage door? We know this might sound silly initially but it is actually very important. First you should keep flashlights right by the door from your home into the garage so that if the power goes out you know exactly where a flashlight is because the garage will be very very dark inside if it is night time.
The next type of safety plan we are talking about is one that you go over with your kids. To make sure they understand exactly how important it is not to play or be around the garage door at all. A lot of kids like to play and hang on the door when it is lifting and lowering but it is extremely dangerous. It is crucial to make it very clear to your children why it is so dangerous to play with the garage door. That door weighs over 100 lbs and if it breaks or the springs snap while someone is on or around the door it can be life threatening.
You can never be too safe with your garage door and taking all measures necessary to know that it is working correctly and safely. We recommend regular checks on the functioning of your door by a professional at least twice a year. If you need help with this please feel free to give us a call and we’ll send someone out!
