Winter Woes

by FedLock 

Winter has reared its ugly head in DC and it seems we will be getting plenty of snow this season. While you're cleaning up the aftermath, beware that chemicals used in ice-melting products can cause a lot of trouble for your doors. When it gets under the threshold, it can ruin closers.

The top photo shows a floor closer that has been affected by weather and chemicals. You can prevent this by ensuring the closer case is sealed, clearing excess product away from the threshold, or choosing a different melting product.

If it's too late and your closer already looks like the "Before" photo, call us to replace it. As you can see from the "After" photo, we clean the entire area and have your door moving smoothly. Quick and simple fix by our talented technicians!
