Did you know June is Garage Door Safety month? Well, it is. In honor of Garage Door Safety month, the International Door Association (IDA) has a new video offering homeowners a quick primer about their garage door and tips to keep the door operating safely and efficiently. I just watched the video (see below) and I plan on doing my semi-annual lubrications of hinges, rollers and springs this weekend. That’s something any homeowner can do. But for major repairs, I’m leaving that to the professionals as the IDA video suggested. And thanks to the International Door Association, I’m giving away a $25 Visa gift card on my dad blog.
The above video is the latest addition to GarageDoorCare.com, which is a non-commercial website dedicated to helping homeowners understand how garage doors work. GarageDoorCare.com is full of useful content that helps homeowners understand the basics of garage door safety, operation and maintenance. It also offers a handy email service that allows customers to sign up for twice-a-year reminders that it’s time to lubricate the garage door. You won’t get a flood of emails or sales calls. Instead, you will receive two simple reminder emails a year — that’s it.
It’s important to remember the garage door is the largest and heaviest moving object in a home. A a falling garage door can cause serious injuries and even death. That’s why I used GarageDoorCare.com to find a garage door service professional when my garage door spring broke. I like saving money by doing my own repairs, but replacing a garage door spring is too dangerous for me to do on my own.
