Living in a home with a garage is a goal and often a requirement for many people. Garages are convenient for parking your vehicles out of the elements, storing your belongings, and using as a workshop. While garages and garage doors are a selling feature for many homebuyers, they can also be dangerous if not operated and maintained appropriately. Here at 31-W Insulation, we want to provide you with these garage door tips to help you stay safe and help you to keep your garage doors operating well for years to come.
- Keep children away from all garage door remotes.
- Test the garage door’s auto reverse features monthly. You can do this by placing a pack of toilet paper in the way of the closing garage door. If the garage door does not reverse when it comes into contact with the toilet paper, you will want to have your garage doors inspected by a professional.
- We do not recommend leaving your garage doors partially open for any reason. This can be a health and safety concern. Partially opened garage doors can allow unwanted pests as well as intruders into your home.
- Our final garage door tip is to be sure to unplug your garage doors when you will be away from home over night.
We hope that these garage door tips will help keep you, your family, and friends safe and enjoying your garage for many years. If you find yourself with any issues with your garage doors, then please give us a call today. We have many years of experience repairing and installing garage doors.
