Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) June 17, 2010
The National Safety Council (NSC) hosts National Safety Month every year during the month of June to help advocate the importance of safety across the country. In helping with raising awareness and safety, Precision Garage Doors of Virginia has plenty of tips to make sure your garage and home is safe.
What people do not often realize is how big and how heavy a garage door is. This is the largest moving object in your home and because of this, can possibly be very dangerous. You need to be sure that the door is properly installed, is being operated correctly and is maintained and tested regularly to ensure safety, which Precision Garage Doors of Virginia can help you with.
A few tips you need to understand:
- Never walk or stand beneath a moving garage door
- Never try to "beat the door" by racing underneath it
- Explain to friends and family how to use the emergency release
- Store your remotes out of the reach of children
- Install wall controls out of the reach of children
- Mount the wall controls in view of the closing door
Your garage door is extremely heavy, and while it doesn't seem like it is while it's traveling on tracks, if the door somehow came off track or if a spring broke you could suffer serious injury. The door could pin you or someone else to the ground. Not to mention the danger of a spring flying around the room. This is why it's very important to properly maintain and repair your garage door and perform regular maintenance.
Precision Garage Doors of Virginia provides garage door maintenance and installation throughout Northern Virginia and Fredericksburg and can be called at any hour of the day for emergency 24 hour service. Precision Door Service trains and employs certified technicians and is a member of the Better Business Bureau.
