Tucson Garage Door Repair Pros Explain the Dangers Of Attempting DIY on Your Garage Door

AJ’s Garage Door Service of Tucson recently published a new video highlighting the dangers of homeowners trying to perform garage door repair in Tucson on their own.

AJ's Garage Door Repair of Tucson in the NewsAndrew Johns, General Manager and spokesman for AJ’s Garage Door Service of Tucson, says, “Usually, the largest mechanical device in your house is the overhead garage door. While the mechanism is complex and poses a threat to anyone without the know-how to take it apart safely, the most dangerous component of the overhead garage door is the spring (or springs, depending on your model). These springs are constantly under immense pressure, which means that it’s very easy for things to go wrong if you don’t know how to handle them properly. If the situation does take a turn for the worse, they can seriously injure or even kill you.”

“The figure might actually be a bit unbelievable, but according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, garage door related accidents are numbered in the thousands,” says Johns. “These accidents vary in their severity but they can lead to fractures, crushing, and even amputation. Considering that not all accident numbers are reported inside the US, the actual number of garage door related accidents is likely to be even higher than that. So believe us when we say that garage door repair and maintenance is not a do-it-yourself project. If you need anything done and done right, you need professionals. Feel free to contact us.”
