Not only can your garage door be the largest piece of movable equipment attached to your home, but it can also be one of the more dangerous ones too, if not given regular maintenance.
Normal daily usage often comprises of residential garage doors being used as entry and exit points for your home, taking out the garbage, going out to get the mail, not to mention the safe and secure housing of your vehicles!
Everyone knows that their car or truck need regular maintenance due to its constant use, and this is the same for garage doors. All it takes is one broken door spring or a faulty safety cable and the very worst can become a reality.
Whilst faulty doors causing fatalities is an extremely rare, worst case scenario, personal damage from under maintained garage doors are unfortunately much more common. One of the most frequently reported injuries are those to the fingers, which are mostly caused by manually pulling down garage door sections that do not conform to DASMA (Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association) safety standards.
