The primary dangers and failures of DIY garage door repair have more to do with accidents, than the failure to repair. The door falling on you is one hazard. What do professionals in garage door opener repair in Marietta say about the hazards of DIY?
A torsion screw release is another cause of accidents. The torsion screw operates a cable system under pressure. If the screw is broken or released under certain circumstances, it can spring out and strike you in the face or body, or cause you to lose your balance and fall off a ladder. The worst-case scenario would be both! It is very important to know what you are doing around the torsion screw.
The electrical motor is always going to be a source of hazard, due to the electricity involved. Working with electricity always involves some skill, and an equal measure of common sense. Garage floors may be wet and you might ignore it. Or, you might use a metal ladder and touch open wires, all the while surrounded by electrical current conducting materials. The least you might experience is a minor shock, the most you might experience is a shock resulting in death by electrocution. Even a minor shock might startle you enough to cause you to fall off a ladder and get injured.
Despite the dangers, you may try to fix the door on your own. If you do, it’s a good idea to have someone help you, or at least be aware where you are and what you’re doing. If you become injured, help will be close by.
