In honor of Friday the 13th and Halloween, the team at Overhead Door wants to share some creepy garage door problems that sound horrifying, but might not actually be as scary as you originally thought. Read on for more...if you dare!
Don't Let These Garage Door Problems Haunt Your House
The Spooky Spring
Was that a scream - or was it just your garage door opening? Garage door parts can rust over time, creating horrific noises that can chill you to the bone. When you schedule service, your techician will either grease the part or replace it.
The Sound of Scurrying
What...was...that...noise?! If you hear the sound of something in your garage - well, that may be more than what Overhead Door is capable of handling. We recommend (1) calling a licensed exterminator (2) cleaning your garage to avoid creating a happy habitat for rodents and insects.
The Flickering Light
Straight out of a horror movie, there are few things scarier than being in a pitch black garage when the light burns out. However, the bulbs are easily replaced. If your entire garage door unit is busted and the light no longer works, set up a replacement with Overhead Door.
The Door That Moves on Its Own
Is your door closing on its own after you've opened it? That doesn't mean there's something supernatural at hand. Though it's a bit disturbing at first, you more than likely have an issue with your safety sensor's eye. Make sure nothing has accidentally fallen over in your garage, then gently wipe any dust off of the lens. If that still doesn't work, call Overhead Door right away for a replacement.
The Thought of Getting Stuck in the Door
We've all seen that scary movie where the spooky killer is chasing the victim and smashes them with the garage door. Though it's a relatively unlikely scenario created for Halloween's purposes, it's always prudent to practice safety around garage doors - especially if you have children or pets.
Though we hope we didn't spoil any spooky delights with these practical realities, we do wish you a safe, fun, and frighteningly festive Friday the 13th and Halloween. If you're still afraid of your garage after reading this, call the professionals at Overhead Door today.
