Even a small mishap can cause big damage. Ask your children to stay away from the garage doors. If they have to be near the door do not forget to keep an eye on them.

You can call a garage repair specialist and ask him to visit your house once in a month. He is the right person to do the check and see if everything is in order. Do not make the mistake of doing the maintenance or repair on your own, as you may miss many of the functionalities, which a specialist will only be able to detect.

Do the safety check regularly
Similar to maintenance, you should also be checking the safety measures related to the door frequently. It is advised that you check if the functionalities are in order. You should check the reverse function of the doors frequently as this is probably one of the biggest contributor to mishaps.

Always keep the windows covered
