Series 2, Part 3: What Health Issues Are Associated With Corroded Metal Door Frames?, Brighton, Michigan

As established in the last two installments of Door Innovation’s three-part series, corroded metal door frames are a security threat. That’s because rust and oxide weaken the frame’s structural integrity, making it vulnerable to forced entry and therefore theft. However, there’s another safety hazard the Brighton, MI-based door frame repair specialists need to cover: health.   

The Question: What Health Issues Are Associated With Corroded Metal Door Frames?

Whether you own a restaurant or manage an apartment complex, your building must be up to local health codes. That means you must meet set standards of both safety and sanitation. But no matter how often you clean and inspect the premises, corrosion will hinder your efforts by putting your and your customers’ health at risk in two ways.  

The Answer: Contamination & Illness

However, this lack of structural integrity also provides a clear path for rodents and debris to enter the facility. In turn, these contaminants jeopardize health. Wild rodents, for example, can carry a variety of serious illnesses including lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM), hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, and rat-bite fever. Dirt, dust, and debris, on the other hand, can trigger asthma attacks, irritate allergies, and reduce overall air quality.  

For the sake of your and your customers’ health, it’s crucial that you repair your commercial door frame as soon as you notice corrosion. If there is visible rust or oxide, that means failure has already begun and will only continue to worsen if left untreated.

To rectify the issue, simply order one of Door Innovation’s patented jamb patch kits. These sets, complete with easy-to-use tools and step-by-step instructions, allow you to self-repair the frame without the hassle or cost of replacing the entire structure. It also increases the functional life of the system, so you get a bigger return on your investment.
