My garage is my favourite room “in” my home. Some people have a meditation or yoga room — I have my garage. To me, it’s the same thing. I can go out there, have a beer, and Zen out for a bit.
Recently, I learned that June is known as Garage Door Safety Month — and at first I thought that was pretty ridiculous. Why does it seem like we have a special day or month for just about everything? You name it, there’s a day for it. But the more I thought about it, the more I like it. Why? It’s a good opportunity to break down a very specific topic about our home, and do a deep dive into it and learn something new about it.
So when we’re learning about garage door safety, what are we talking about? I think of two things: the way it protects our homes, and the safety precautions we take when we use it.
How Does It Control?
If your garage door has a hand-held unit opener, keep it out of plain sight in your car. For those of you with keypad entries, keep the code secret. It should be between you’re your family, and maybe a trusted neighbour who checks on things while you’re away.
