Garage Door Safety Tips
Keep Your Remote Hidden
It’s an unfortunate reality that crime increases around the holidays, and garage doors are often a common entry point. Thieves have been known to look for garage door remotes in cars that are parked outside, which then provides them with easy access to your home. If you park your car outside, then make it a habit to take your remote inside with you whenever you come home.
Check the Reversing Mechanism
Your garage door’s reversing mechanism is crucial for your safety, and you should periodically check to ensure that it’s working properly. Place a small object in front of each sensor to ensure that the reversing mechanism is working as it should. If it doesn’t, then check to make sure that the sensors haven’t become obscured by mud or dust. Our garage door repair experts are always here and ready to help, so give us a call if you would like further assistance.
Don’t Attempt DIY Repairs
No matter how busy the holiday season gets, safety should always be your top priority. If your garage door starts acting up before your annual holiday party, or it starts to make strange noises before you leave for vacation, then call one of our garage door repair professionals immediately. While we understand that it can be tempting to attempt a quick fix to save yourself some time, it’s never worthwhile to put yourself at risk. Springs can snap without warning and rollers can easily become dislodged if you aren’t familiar with the mechanisms, and this only makes it harder to restore functionality. At Coast 2 Coast Garage Door, we’re committed to providing each of our customers with fast responses and quick turnaround times, and our technicians will work to ensure that your garage door is working efficiently before the new year arrives.
