Door Guardian

The other day I got to have a chance to talk to a rep that I have known for so many years. Recently he and his wife have had family dynamics change. His wife’s mom has come to live with them. The family had decided that a home environment was better for her right now. Making space for her, making her feel comfortable was their number one priority. And then there was safety. They had an episode where Mom had just walked out the front door. And no one knew.

Well, it all turned out ok, she was in the front yard, safe and sound. But they didn’t want to go through that again. I told him I had the perfect solution, Door Guardian. Door Guardian is a 3-inch dead bolt that doesn’t require a key. Door Guardian is an easy-to-use, easy-to-install, cost-effective, safety solution for your home. This lock can secure doors in your homes, apartment, condos and student housing. Door Guardian is an effective solution in securing and reinforcing exterior doors. It can be installed on front doors, side doors, back doors, garage entrances and balcony doors. The lock does not require a key because the lock has a spring mechanism that when shut, will not open. However, a simple slide of the lock will release the spring and you can open the door. It’s the action of a slide that is hard to understand. It’s not just a simple thumb throw. However, in an emergency, no one is scrambling for a key. Door Guardian is an effective tool in providing quick and easy childproofing and for guardians of adults that might wander out a door.

A quick call to his wife wanting to know what color Door Guardian she wanted (smart man) and he took two and left. The next week he was in the store again and thanked me over and over because the lock was the perfect answer. It was easy to install.

You know not all of us are in a situation with either a small child or older adult. But Door Guardian provides a peace of mind about security when you are at home. No one is going to come through your door when it secured with a 3-inch steel lock. Door Guardian resists up to 800 lbs. of force. It comes in satin steel, chrome and oil rubbed bronze and retails for under $25.

TIP

We all have aluminum foil in our pantry. Did you know you can use it to scrub your BBQ grill grates? Just heat up the grill and before it gets too hot, scrub with crumpled up aluminum foil. It does a wonderful job. But did you know that use it as a furniture slide? Wrap the legs of your furniture dull side down and it will go across carpet easily.

Now to the email……

Question: I have a laminate floor in a hallway. Unfortunately, there is a gap in the flooring in the middle of the floor. I keep a rug on the floor so you can’t see the gap, but it can catch your toe and you lose your balance. Since I keep it covered, I’m not worried about how it looks. Just need to fix it.
Answer: Since you are not concerned about the look, and you don’t have any left-over flooring then I think that wood filler is what you should use. I like Minwax, but there are several others to choose from. The Minwax you could stain to match the laminate.

Question: Trudy, my granite has not been resealed in my kitchen and bathrooms in eight years. I think I need to reseal it. What product would you use?
Answer: Granite Gold Sealer. It comes in a quart spray and retails for a little over $30. They also make a sealer in a wipe. When you seal, you will need to remove all appliances. Start with a clean surface and spray on the sealer. Immediately wipe and dry. Then take another soft rag and dry again. You don’t want to let the sealer air dry. It will haze. Not the end of the world ...but not a good look. Remember, don’t place anything on the counter tops for 24 hours. I would use it as an excuse to eat out! But that’s me.
