Celebrate Garage Door Safety Month: Tips for a Safer Garage Door!


June Is the Official Month for Garage Safety

Garage Door SafetyBoth the International Door Association (IDA) and the Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA) have officially declared the month of June as garage door safety month.

Keeping your garage door safe is an important responsibility for both home and business owners. While there have been advancements in the field of door safety, garages still pose a serious risk of property and bodily harm if handled improperly.

To make sure all of our friends and family stay safe while operating garage doors, Sacs has composed the following safety tips:

  1. Inspect your door for signs of damage on a monthly basis.
  2. Ensure cables and drums are well secured.
  3. Don’t allow children to play with or around the garage door. It’s not a toy!
  4. Keep the parts of your garage well lubricated.
  5. Invest in a sensor that automatically detects obstructions when opening and closing the door.
  6. Don’t tamper with a broken garage door. Block off the area and call a trained technician.

Remember, no garage door is worth getting injured over. When in doubt, call for help.

Do-It-Yourself Garage Door Repair: Money Saved or Money Lost?

Skipping the traditional garage door repairman and going at it alone sounds like a good way to save a little money. And for some homeowners, this is certainly true. Fixing a minor dent or replacing a small part on your own can save money. But mistakes cost money and your garage door is no exception. It’s not always as easy as replacing a part or two. Small errors could cost you big if the whole door comes crashing down later. Plus, you risk voiding your doors entire warranty. Instead of DIY, consider hiring a professional. That way, you can rest assured that the job was done right.
