Wouldn't you want to avoid a lot of garage door problems? Sure you would. That's why you need to take a look at the tips below and learn what you can do to prevent a lot of accidents from happening.
Test your door's auto-reversing mechanism often
All garage doors sold after 1991 are required to have an auto-reversing mechanism that makes it change direction if something is in its path. This mechanism should be tested often by placing an object, such as a broom or roll or paper towels, on the floor near the center of the door. The door should go into reverse when it touches the object. If it doesn't, try adjusting the opener limit or call our team to fix the problem.
Don't leave your garage door open
Never leave your garage door open and unattended for an extended period of time. The system was designed to stay open for a certain amount of time in terms of acceptable wear, and the springs’ life-cycle. You may also be leaving your home and possessions exposed to unexpected visitors or even thieves who might enter your home through your garage without you even realizing it to steal property or potentially create a dangerous situation for you and your family.
