Why you should never leave your garage door open
- Theft: One of the main problems with failing to close your garage door is that it opens you up to the risk of theft. This may relate to furniture, gym gear or even the car that you park in the space. It’s also important to remember that a garage can give people a way into your actual home. Depending on the property’s floor plan, they may be able to enter the kitchen, hallways, bedrooms and more. Remember that you’re asking for trouble if you don’t keep your door secured.
- Children and pets: If you have young children, or curious pets, then you’ll know as well as anyone how important it is to keep your gates and inside doors closed. Well, the same applies to your garage door, as this will most often be the entry and exit point. Wandering kids and inquisitive pets can easily sneak out and walk onto busy footpaths and roads, exposing them to a world of danger. By keeping everything closed and under control, you can rest easy and know that everyone will be safe and sound.
- Weather: Something that homeowners underestimate is the damage that the outside conditions can do to things stored within a garage. For instance, should you forget to close the door, wind and rain can quickly cause havoc and destroy fragile items. Be it an antique lamp, a precious painting or anything else, it’s always wise to keep things shielded from the elements.
