With the holiday season well underway, many households are going in and out of their homes to shop, planning Christmas dinners, and hosting visitors from out of town. With the hustle and bustle of the season, the last thing you need to deal with is a garage door issue. Here are some of our top tips on maintaining your garage door this season.
Tips for garage door safety over the holidays
Keep your garage door free of decorations – It’s tempting to add accessories right onto a garage door because of its size. However, we recommend refraining from doing so because the decor might get caught as the door lifts. This impacts its functionality and can damage garage door components.
Only add garland and lights around the frame – When it comes to placing lights, garlands, or other decors around your garage, keep in mind that safety is the priority. Instead of decorating the garage door itself, a more practical way to make your garage a little more festive is to add decor around the frame. When adding garland or lights, be sure to secure them tightly so there’s no chance of them becoming loose and getting caught when the door opens.
Disable your garage door opener during parties – With family gatherings, there may be little ones running around and playing with the garage door. Sometimes, hosts aren’t aware of this because they’re so busy entertaining and keeping their guests comfortable. We recommend disabling your garage door opener to void all the remotes connected to your home and prevent young ones from playing with the garage opener. Just remember to enable it again when you head out the following day!
Make a list and check it twice – While the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, it’s also unfortunately the time of year when theft and home break-ins are at an all-time high. If you’re going out of town this holiday season or you know you’ll be away from home for a few hours, be sure to include your garage door as part of your home safety checklist before you head out. If you have a modern garage door opener, make use of the app that allows you to monitor when your garage door is opened from anywhere in the world.
Give the gift of garage door installation, repairs, and service
A garage door installation, repair, and service may be an unconventional gift but it’s also a practical one that can bring many benefits, including safety and convenience.
