Keep your family safe. Homeowners with a garage door in Vancouver, WA who are concerned with safety will appreciate these three tips from a professional installer.
Vancouver, WA -- If you have children or pets and you have a garage door, there are a few simple things you can do to keep them safe and sound. Most homeowners do not think about their garage door until something stops working. And safety isnít usually something parents think about when it comes to their garage door. But there is need for caution. So take these three tips from an experienced installer of garage doors in Vancouver, WA.
Garage Pro reminds local residents that their garage door is big and heavy.
First tip. Teach your children not to run in and out of the garage when the garage door is opening or closing. Even with built in safety features a closing door can still cause severe injury or even death. Clothing such as a scarf can even catch on an opening garage door.
Younger children should not be allowed to touch the garage door opener button or remote unless there is an emergency. They are not toys. Parents should keep all remotes out of the reach of children.
If a child opens the garage door by pushing a remote on your keychain, for example, and you are unaware, this could leave your door wide open to intruders. And, if this is done at night time your family could be put in danger.
Such an event is emotionally traumatizing and takes away your sense of security.
Second tip. Make sure your family never puts their hands (or any other body part) on any part of the door when it is opening or closing. Fingers can be severely pinched or worse.
North Americaís leading trade association of garage door manufacturers and its various parts, DASMA, says that many unsuspecting homeowners injure their fingers by ignoring this vital tip. So they advise to never place your fingers between the door sections or near the tracks.
Third tip. Itís a good idea to get your garage door properly maintained and inspected by a professional every year. There are at least ten items to check. Among them are your garage door springs and your garage door opener. Is it working correctly? He will inspect the hinges, rollers and tracks.
These should be lubricated for proper functioning.
One final bonus tip. Garage Pro says to always watch the garage door especially when it is closing to make sure that it closes completely and that your children or pets didnít somehow sneak by you.
