Safety First! 2 Ways to Test Your Garage Door Safety Features

Your garage door is the largest and heaviest moving system in your home. Therefore, it should have safety features that prevent it from closing on a person or a pet or crushing something important.

However, not all garage doors have these features. Garage door safety features were not a requirement on garage door openers until the early 1990s, so if your garage opener was installed before 1991, there's a good chance it lacks modern safety features.

Even if your garage door safety features are in place, they can malfunction if they're not properly maintained. Testing your garage door safety from time to time is important. Best of all, safety testing can be done by you, no garage door contractor needed.

Pests in the Garage? How to Fight Infestation with Garage Maintenance

Garage pests can be a problem at this time of year! When the weather gets cold, mice and insects start to look for comfortable, safe accommodations to spend the winter. For a little mouse seeking a warm, dry shelter, your garage is the perfect place to spend a few months. Garage pests can be a problem, especially if your garage is attached to your home. 

It's best to get this problem under control now, before your garage pests become permanent residents of your property. In addition to hiring a pest control company (which is always a good idea when you're fighting an active infestation), you can ward off garage pests by performing normal garage maintenance tasks. By sealing your garage door and closing off points of entry into your garage, you can help keep pests away. You can also make your garage less hospitable to pests by eliminating hiding places and removing food sources. These tips can help.
