Garage Door Safety

Clean garageGarage doors keep out bad weather and wandering critters. Some are automatic and open with the push of a button, while others have to be opened and closed by hand. Either way, garage doors are very heavy and can cause serious injury.

Keep these tips in mind to be safe around garage doors:

  • Don’t crawl under a garage door when it’s moving up or down. Keep pets from running under it, too!
  • Don’t climb or hang on to a garage door while it’s moving.
  • Don’t play with the garage door or the garage door button—you could break it!

Some garage doors have a device that will stop the door from moving if it notices movement nearby. These can help prevent an accident, but you should still practice good safety in case the device isn’t working properly. As always, let’s stay safe together!
