Many families use the garage door more than the front door. Armfuls of groceries and the kid’s bikes and toys all go in through them. The potential for an accident is high with so much activity swirling around. That is why garage door safety needs to be a priority in every household.
The first question homeowners need to ask is how old is the door and opener? If it’s over 10 years old is due for an inspection by a qualified specialist. The specialist will test the springs for any weakness, inspect the opener, and track system for any signs of wear and tear. The homeowner should never attempt to adjust the springs or tension devices. The components are under a great deal of tension, and serious injury can occur.
