Garage Door Safety Month

Summertime often means dragging toys and yard tools out of the garage more frequently. With more traffic, now is a good time to make sure everything is still running properly with your garage door. Our team at Overhead Door Company of Des Moines™ wanted to share a few reminders with you during Garage Door Safety Month.


Top Priority

Our top priority is the safety of our customers and their families. It is a good idea to remind your children that garage doors and remotes are not toys. We also recommend keeping the garage door in sight until it fully opens or closes. Don’t leave the moving piece unattended.



As a garage door is a mechanical piece, you never want to ignore regular maintenance. This helps ensure your door is operating safely. Check out our yearly maintenance checklist of things you can do yourself. However, if any springs, cables, and brackets are in need of attention, you will need our trained professionals for assistance. Remember, safety is a priorty.
