Garage Door Safety Tips Around Children
During these COVID-19 times (and now that summer vacation has arrived) children are often at home more than they are during the other seasons of the year. With that in mind, it's good to revisit some safety information with regard to garage doors.
As we often say, the garage door represents the largest and heaviest door in and out of the home. In order to keep children safe, garage doors need to function properly, which depends on safe operating habits and well-maintained equipment.
The Overhead Door Company of Lexington is always available for inspection, maintenance, and installation/replacement work for any type of garage door. We have over 50 years of experience, so you don't have to take on the stress (and potential danger) on your own.

After you've confirmed that your garage door is installed correctly and is functioning according to factory specifications, make sure it's always treated with respect. Don't let children play with remotes or under the door. Teach them to keep clear of the door when it's moving and to avoid touching it, in general.
When kids understand the serious dangers garage doors can present, they're less likely to injure themselves around them. And that's a goal we all have. If you have any questions about your garage door, please contact us at The Overhead Door Company of Lexington. We're ready to assist you!
