Safety Tips in the Garage

Our team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Cleveland has assisted many homeowners with the design and structure of usable space in the garage. While doing so, we have helped many customers with their concerns about potential dangers in this otherwise family-friendly zone of the home.

These are dangers in your garage that you need to be aware of:

1. Dangerous Fumes

Carbon monoxide is an incredibly deadly gas that can flow into your house through an attached garage. Usually, the culprit is a lawnmower or gas furnace, but the fumes can also come from a car you leave running for too long.

Even when garage doors are left open, the fumes can become dangerous. This is why it is important to have carbon monoxide detectors with alarms in your home.

2. Fire Hazards

Flammable items in your garage (such as fuel cans, aerosol paints, and other combustible chemicals needed for home maintenance) can be the source of a house fire. It is important to keep these items away from sparks and intense heat. All hazardous materials should be properly labeled, and you should have a fully charged fire extinguisher nearby at all times.

3. Unlocked Entry Doors

It is very tempting to keep the door between your attached garage and your house unlocked for easy entry when you come home. But if you can enter easily, so can a burglar if he makes his way into your garage. It takes only a few seconds to turn a deadbolt with your key while enjoying a more secure barrier for your family and belongings.

4.Temptations for Children

Push buttons and clickers are great fun for kids. That being said, they often do not know how to use them safely in regards to garage doors. Always be vigilant in keeping children safe from the hazards of opening and closing garage doors.

5.Weakened Garages

Intense storms and high winds have caused many garage doors to give way and cause damage to the attached house. It is often not a good idea to use your garage as a waiting area during such dangerous times. Garage doors, while quite sturdy, are not built with the same materials as the walls in houses.

They should not be depended upon when you are trying to protect your family from items being blown about by wind and rain.  

6. Troubling Clutter

The organization of items in your garage is actually one of the most important tasks you can accomplish. Proper shelving, containers, spacing, and labeling will help you know where everything is. It will also reduce tripping hazards and injuries that could be inflicted by unknown sharp tools or loose items that could fall from overhead.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
