June is National Garage Door Safety Month!

downloadOur friends at Amarr sent the following press release:
A garage door is often the largest moving part in a home and is typically used multiple times every day. In fact, a majority of families enter and exit their homes primarily through the garage door, relegating front doors as destinations for special occasions and largely used by visitors. Summer brings even more activity for garage doors when children are home from school and bikes, sports equipment, and other toys are being taken out more often, home gardening activity sees a spike, and families generally come and go more for various activities and trips. Regular garage door maintenance and safety precautions are particularly important to keep in mind this time of year.
“Garage door use has become such an ingrained part of daily life for families that oftentimes home owners don’t stop to think of checking basic components and functions of their doors,” said Entrematic vice president of marketing Vickie Lents. “A few simple and quick things can keep garage doors safe and help them last for years. Summer is an ideal time to check just a few components of garage doors and protect your family from potential harm.”
The springs and cables that activate a garage door receive the most wear and tear and should be inspected periodically to ensure the mechanics are in good working condition and are properly lubricated. Routine maintenance on garage doors should be performed once a month. Look at the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other door hardware for signs of wear.
If problems are suspected, a qualified professional should perform repairs. An annual visit from a trained door systems technician can keep garage doors operating safely and smoothly and prolong their life. To find an independent garage door dealer in your area, go to and click on the Amarr garage doors section.
“Additionally, children should not be allowed to play with garage doors or their openers and should always be supervised when operating garage doors,” Lents added. “Caution also should be used with pets that have access to the garage area. By using a little common sense and preventive maintenance on your garage door, your garage can become an extension of your home and a safe place for the whole family.”
