May is National Garage Door Safety Month and this year’s theme is “Look, Listen, Learn, Remember”—officially recognized and endorsed by the International Door Association (IDA) and member businesses.

  1. LOOK at the garage door, springs, cables and rollers for wear and tear
  2. LISTEN for grinding or scraping sounds
  3. LEARN
    –Keep the garage door opener and remote out of reach of children
    –Keep fingers and hands away from door sections and moving doors
    –Keep garage doors closed and remote controls out of sight to deter theft
  4. REMEMBER if you find any concerns regarding your door system, contact a trained garage door professional
