Dust the areas around the garage door every month
Do you carry out periodic maintenance of your residential garage door? Do you like to keep things tidy and clean? Then dusting the areas around your door once every month is a good idea. This will help you get rid of small objects and insects that may be occupying space in the little cavities. Such things can hamper the smooth functioning of your door.
Replace damaged safety sensors immediately
Your opener sensors are designed to detect objects in the path of the door so that your door reverses automatically if something is in the way. They are crucial safety features and must work properly at all times - we recommend checking them regularly and organising a professional service check at least once a year.
How to be safe around your garage door
The best way to prevent accidents and to maintain safety is to frequently inspect your opener sensors. You must also avoid standing under the door when in motion and resist attempting to handle the springs if something seems to be wrong. These components can be very dangerous and unpredictable. Lastly, it may seem obvious, but you should be sure to keep remotes away from kids!
