An unsafe garage door is just as it says: Unsafe. But so many people don’t seem to mind having an unsafe garage door, and instead, just carry on about their day without ever even thinking about it. In fact, we’re fairly certain that most people that have an unsafe garage door have no idea that they have an evil death trap just waiting for them in their garage door; an evil beast that is lying in wait, hoping to ensnare an unsuspecting victim in it’s gaping maw.
Okay, so that was a little extreme and might be better placed in a Stephen King novel, but you get the idea. An unsafe garage door is a serious safety hazard, and here we’ll outline just a couple of the things that can happen if you don’t keep up on your garage door safety testing and your garage door maintenance:
- You, or some of your loved ones could get trapped in the path of the garage door while it’s closing, which can lead to serious injury, including even death. Not a good place to be when you want to stay alive and not crushed.
- Something you own could get trapped beneath the garage door, which could ultimately destroy whatever is caught in the path of your garage door.
- You could be trapped in your garage if you’re caught in an emergency that has left you without power. This could have some serious implications about your safety and well being.
So think about this and ask yourself if you ever want to catch yourself in these situations.
