During June’s National Garage Door Safety Month Show the Largest/Heaviest Moving Object in Your Home Some Extra Attention

As the American home has evolved over the years, so too has the garage -- both in the way it looks as well as its newfound functionality as the main entranceway to the home. In fact, more than 70 percent of homeowners enter and exit their home through the garage door, relying on it as the new front door.

Since the garage door now plays such a key role in many homeowners' daily lives, garage industry professionals, installers and leading manufacturers of garage doors and openers have teamed up to offer easy-to-follow tips for maintaining the safety and security of this access point during June’s “National Garage Door Safety Month.”

“June is the perfect time to pay a little more attention to your garage door and opener since a garage often becomes the hub of activity for many families,” notes Paul Accardo of LiftMaster, the world’s largest manufacturer of professionally installed openers.

“We ramp up our usage of the garage door and opener during the summer months since this is where many are entering the home and storing the gardening supplies, sporting equipment, lawn furniture, kid’s bicycles and if there is room, the family car. With all the added ups and downs, now is the time to check to make sure everything is in working order with your door and opener.”

With the additional traffic running through the garage, National Garage Door Safety Month is the ideal time to perform a periodic safety inspection of your garage door, especially those equipped with automatic operators. Check out the tips from LiftMaster on how to get your garage in gear this time of year.
