How to Stay Safe with Extension Springs
If your garage door uses extension springs, chances are you're going to have a pair or two attached to the sides of the door. When they're loaded (when the door is down), there is a lot of energy stored in them and if they are accidentally slid off their hooks and brackets, they could fly off and cause serious injuries to people or a lot of damage to property. Replace older springs with newer ones that have a safety cable running through them.
Do not take your garage door system for granted
You should not take your door system for granted. You should always use caution when working near the unit or on the unit. You should make sure that everyone in your home understands that this part of your home is not a toy and should be handled with care always.
Replace weather seals regularly
Garage door weather seals have a special meaning since they ensure good insulation. Since they're placed all around the door, they'll eventually wear or their adhesives dry out, and must be replaced. Our professionals suggest replacing the bottom seal often since it's in the most vulnerable area.
Learn to avoid accidents
Accidents happen when people meddle with garage door repairs without having knowledge, ignore sensor problems, and forget to replace garage door springs on time. So, it's time to do exactly the opposite and avoid standing under the door and don't let children play with the clicker.
