Keeping you safe is our top priority here at Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Kansas City, KS. It is our goal to give you the information you need to keep your family from harm. Here are the things you need to know about garage door safety.

Teach Children Safety First

It is important to teach your children that a garage door is not a toy. They can find a great deal of entertainment from opening and closing the door. That is why it is best to share with them that they shouldn’t play with the buttons.

Another thing that needs to be mentioned to children, is that they should stay out from under the door. If it starts closing, they need to quickly move in or out of the garage.

Have Safety Sensor Checked

There is a safety sensor that keeps your door from closing on objects and people. The sensors should be installed at the bottom of the door jams. When the line between the sensors is interrupted, it should cause the door to stop and automatically reverse.

In order to test that it is working, place your trash can or some other object in the way of the sensors. Then you will need to push the button on your garage door. If it is functioning properly, it will keep the door from coming down on the object.

Keep Fingers Away From Door Jams

When you are near the overhead door, you should keep your fingers away from the door jam. Before you push the button, ensure that you and everyone else is fully away from it. This includes pets as well.

Perform General Maintenance

Another way to ensure that your assembly is functioning properly is to have general maintenance performed. Be sure to schedule one of our techs to come out on a yearly basis to do our Tune-n-Lube servivce. We will inspect all of your parts for functionality to keep you and your family safe.

It is best to have a professional come and do the maintenance, in order to determine if parts are working properly. Our techs can share with you whether or not a part needs to be changed out or not.

Disconnect Power Source For Repairs

Whether you are doing repairs or just generally checking your garage door, be sure to disconnect it from the power source. It is important to remember that electrical shock can be fatal. Take all precautions to shut down the power in the breaker box to keep from damaging yourself. If you are not sure how to shut down the power, call a professional technician to help you.

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.
