Garages are a common staple in owning a home, with more homes than ever boasting an attached garage that is often the family’s primary entrance. It stands to reason, then, that it’s important to ensure that your garage is kept free of safety hazards. Whether or not you spend much time in your garage, or your children play in it, these safety tips may be invaluable to your family. There are many things that could be safety hazards you may never even think of in a garage! Read on to discover what you can do to make your garage a safer place for your whole family.
Keep Your Garage Organized with Safety in Mind
If you, like many, keep any kind of tools in your garage, whether it be a workshop, a toolbox, or yard or gardening tools, it may seem obvious that these are common garage safety hazards. Sharp tools can lead to injuries in children and adults, and that’s common knowledge. However, the leading cause of injuries in garages is actually a lack of organization! A messy garage can present lots of tripping hazards, which can be even riskier when you add the aforementioned sharp objects. A poorly organized storage system (or lack thereof) can lead to heavy objects falling, presenting risks to people and vehicles alike.
For safer garage organization, stack storage items with the heavier items on the bottom and the lightest at the top. Store sharp tools in hard-to-reach places, like high shelves, drawers, or hooks.
Keep Your Garage Door in Safe Working Order
In the past several years, many improvements have been made on automatic garage doors to make them much safer. However, as with anything, accidents can still occur. The most vulnerable group is children. As children are inclined to play with anything and everything, they may find entertainment in playing with the garage door opener, which can put them in harm’s way. In addition to telling your children that the garage door opener is not a toy, the best way to prevent a disaster is to make sure that your garage door, and its opener, are in good condition. The garage door can also be the main entryway to your home, if the garage is attached, so you want to be sure that the door is in prime condition.
Calling our garage door service company in Hollywood is the best way to ensure that your garage door is in good working condition. We can ensure that your track is straight and undamaged, free of rust and debris, and will continue to raise and lower without problems. We will also check that the sensors are working properly. The sensors detect whether an obstruction (which could be a person) is in the way, signaling the door to stop lowering. A problem with these sensors could lead to property damage or serious injury.
We can also perform maintenance on the opener unit or remote control, to ensure that only your remote will activate the door opening. Keep our Hollywood garage door service on speed dial for if the door itself becomes dented or damaged. We can keep the door functioning properly, and keep it in great condition so that it can withstand the elements and other factors.
Keep Your Garage Door Safe from the Elements
Speaking of the weather, Hollywood, as with the rest of Florida, is a hot spot for hurricanes. Garage doors are bulky and less resilient to the forces of nature as compared to the rest of the house. Hurricanes and high winds can damage your door itself, its tracks, or other elements of the garage door. Experience has taught us that it is important to take precautions.
