Las Vegas, NV, January 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Most homeowners do not think of loose chains when they look at their garage doors but Las Vegas garage door specialist, Damian Douglas says that is one of the most dangerous problems to have around the home.

“It is one of the most dangerous things that can happen to your garage door. Because it is not so common, most homeowners do not typically think of it but a loose chain can make your garage door inoperable or even worse, downright dangerous,” he said this week in Las Vegas, NV.
Douglas said that when the garage door chain comes loose, the door becomes unbalanced. “Garage doors are heavy. They are the heaviest moving objects in the home and when they become unbalanced, they are dangerous. They can fall, causing a lot of damage to the home and possibly harming those around,” he added.
The Nevada garage door expert advised homeowners to look for wear on the chains as they operate the doors.
“Over time as the garage door is operated, the chains can begin to experience wear. This is normal. When this happens, the garage door may no longer be able to lift properly. They may not move at all or fail to rise to the proper height,” Douglas said.
He said that homeowners should look for sagging or dropping in some areas of the chain. “This may not be apparent to the casual observer so you may have to get a ladder and feel along the chain to make sure they continue to maintain even tightness,” Douglas continued.
Damian Douglas told homeowners to contact local garage door experts if they believe their door chains are coming loose.
“This is really important. It is not smart to keep operating your garage door when the chain is coming loose. If caught early, it is relatively easy to fix. If you fail to catch it early and the garage door breaks, it can become quite expensive to take care of,” Damian Douglas said.
