If you're like most homeowners, keeping your house in great shape is important to you. It should be functioning smoothly, but also beautifully appointed and tailored to suit the needs of you and your family—an oasis of relaxation where you can retreat from the demands of the rest of the world.

Even with the very best intentions, that is not easy to accomplish. That's why it's so understandable that homeowners tend to procrastinate on property maintenance, even if they know what needs to be done. It can be frustrating trying to keep up with a long list of nagging repairs and desperately-needed improvements, especially if you aren't necessarily equipped with the right tools and know-how to make it all happen—and quite frankly, who has the free time for all that work?

We do! You can count on My Handyman of Ann Arbor, Saline, and Chelsea to cross every task off your to-do list quickly and efficiently. Our service professionals have passed an extensive screening process, and have a minimum of 15 years of experience in repair trades—many of them have more than 30 years of experience to call on.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

If you've ever had to hang your laundry on a clothesline to dry, you know automatic clothes dryers are one of the best modern conveniences available. But did you know that your dryer can't function safely and efficiently without dryer vent cleaning?

Under normal circumstances, lint and other debris go into the lint trap, while the dryer uses the vent to get rid of hot, humid air from wet laundry. But over time lint makes its way into the vent, partially or completely blocking airflow. That causes the dryer to work much harder and use more energy, which increases your utility bill. Much worse, it can create a tiny spark that sets the flammable lint in the vent on fire, sending flames tearing through the walls of your home.

Dryer fires happen more often than people think—nearly 3,000 per year are reported in the United States, causing injury, death, and staggering property loss. You can help to prevent it by always cleaning out the lint trap after every load of laundry. But how do you know if you need professional dryer vent cleaning? Here are the warning signs to watch for:

  • Clothes are still damp at the end of one cycle
  • Takes more than about 30 to 45 minutes to dry laundry
  • Fabric is very hot or has a musty smell after drying
  • Visible lint collected around the vent opening outside
  • Over one year since it was last cleaned

Milan Window Repair & Replacement

Windows are among the most necessary and prominent features of modern homes, but they can cause a lot of trouble for homeowners when they aren't maintained or fall into disrepair. When most people think of a broken window, they picture smashed glass—but there are a lot of more subtle signs that your windows are in rough shape and costing you money on your energy bill, such as:

  • Rotting wood on frames & sills
  • Difficulty opening & closing
  • Peeling, flaking paint, or wood stain
  • Broken muntins & mullions
  • Air drafts coming in even when the window is closed
  • Foggy windows caused by condensation trapped between panes
  • Insects are finding a way in through the frame
  • Screen has holes or rips

My Handyman can get your windows back in great condition to make your home comfortable again and save you unnecessary energy costs.

From fence to porch to the house itself, the exterior elements of your home set first impressions for visitors and contribute to your curb appeal.

It needs to be in good shape to protect the interior and prevent outside damage from spreading in.
