Mezuzah Checking & Mezuzah House Calls

IMG_0791

I take the mezuzos down in a certain order and I put them on the table in the same order, so I can always return them to their original location.

I specialize in Mezuzah House Calls: Mezuzah checking in your home or office. If you are like many of my customers you don’t have time to get up in the morning, take down your mezuzos, label them, bring them to my office, get to work on time, pick them up from me at the end of the day, return home, and get them back up correctly! Or maybe even if you do have time, for whatever reason you keep putting it off. That’s where I come in:

  1. I will carefully remove all of your mezuzos, three or four at a time.
  2. I will check (in your home) and repair your mezuzos, as well as alert you to problems.
  3. I can do on site computer scanning upon request.
  4. Mezuzos are attached with screws which are neater and more secure than nails.
  5. Outdoor mezuzos will be waterproofed.
  6. Bedroom mezuzos are wrapped according to halachah.
  7. I check that mezuzos are in all required places.
  8. Problematic doorways will be photographed and brought to a Rav.
  9. Each mezuzah will be down for a short time only.
  10. I carry a full selection of tefillin, mezuzos, and cases in various price ranges.
  11. Rabbinical references and references from customers in your area are available.
  12. I check, fix, and sell new tefillin.
  13. If you prefer, you can bring or send your mezuzos to my office.

Industrial Applications:

When you need your mezuzos to be protected because they will be in a commercial area metal mezuzah cases are ideal. Since standard metal cases do not have holes large enough for screws that will go into metal door frames, I enlarge the holes with a drill press and use a heavy duty self drilling screw. The metal case will not crack and break, and the screws will hold the case very securely on the door frame. This solution is not recommended for very moist areas.
