#Giveaway Garage Door Safety Month + $25 Visa Gift Card

This post is sponsored and written by me on behalf of Garage Door Care through a campaign managed by their PR. All opinions are my own.




The month of June is here and in full swing and with that we not only celebrate dad and the start of summer but also Garage Door Safety Month. For me I find that it is a great reminder to ensure that we take care of the maintenance needed in order to insure that our garage doors are working properly, and that they are also working safely for the sake of everyone in our homes. And recently I was given some great tips, information and a video to share from Garage Door Care to help not only with keeping my garage door working effectively and safely at my home, but also for my readers to do so as well.




See with the resources from Garage Door Care, I get the information I might need in order to ensure that my garage door is working properly. This is very important because the garage door can be the heaviest moving object in the home, and when not working properly, can also be the most dangerous as well. Which when a garage door falls can cause serious injury or even death, and with the video above that can also be found at Garage Door Care, I can get the information I might need about the mechanisms like the tracks, rollers, and hinges that myself and my children should stay clear of to help avoid injury.


At Garage Door Care, I can also get the reminder to keep up with the maintenance such as lubrication when I sign up for those twice a year reminders. Then when I need to find a specialist who can service my garage door to help prevent any issues, I can find a local garage door service professional on the Garage Door Care site as well. Allowing me and my family to not only learn about garage door safety, but also get the resources we need to ensure that our garage door functions properly, and making the Garage Door Care site a resource that I find a necessity for anyone who has a garage door! So as we celebrate summer and the month of June, be sure to add Garage Door Safety Month in the mix and head to Garage Door Care, also be sure to enter to win a $25 Visa Gift Card in the giveaway below.

The garage door is typically the largest moving object in your home. Properly maintained and operated, a garage door and its operating system allow you, your family and your vehicles convenient access to and from your home. They also provide security and protect against the elements. Newer, insulated garage doors even help save energy.

I learned about a maintenance tip: Monthly door balance test. If your door is equipped with an automatic opener system: close the door and disconnect the automatic opener. Once you are able to lift the door manually: Lift the door. It should lift smoothly with little resistance and should remain fully open. If it is difficult to open or does not remain open, the door may be out of balance and should be serviced by a trained service technician.
