We've all been there. Well, not our pro Dallas home service experts, but the rest of us understand. Hanging pictures is one of those seemingly easy tasks that all too often goes wrong. Frames wind up unevenly spaced, and behind each are 10 different holes from your previous attempts.

2. Mount Your TV On the Wall

Just like how many homeowners put off hanging pictures, it's common for homeowners to put-off hanging their new TVs.

Our team of experts will help. We'll mount your TV carefully and correctly, so you can get back to binging your favorite shows on Netflix.

3. Fix Damaged Drywall

Whether you were moving furniture and it went through the wall, or your kids were playing catch inside and now there is a mysterious hole in the middle of the wall, cracked and dented drywall is an eyesore that can't go unfixed. Not only are the damaged areas unattractive and ruining the overall appearance of your home, but these areas will also get worse as time goes on. Once damaged, it's in drywall's nature to continue getting damaged. As those cracks and holes worsen, they’ll start causing bigger problems too.

Issues with water damage are of particular concern. Damaged drywall that develops because of water issues, or in areas of the house where water may seep through the damaged areas, could lead to serious complications. Our Dallas home services experts will get your dilapidated walls looking good-as-new in no time, so you don’t have to worry about those potential complications.

4. Re-Grout Old Tiles and Re-Caulk

Over time, the grout in your bathroom or kitchen backsplash gets old, dated and dirty. All kinds of stains and grime could make your grout look worse for wear. This ruins the appearance of your tiled areas, such as on your kitchen backsplash or kitchen floor.

It's also worth noting that caulk only lasts about 5 years. After that time, it starts to deteriorate and will need to be replaced with fresh beads of caulk. When caulk starts to deteriorate, it can result in water and air leaks that wreak havoc in your home.

Our Dallas home services will help you keep your grout and caulk in the best condition possible. As an added benefit, refreshing your grout is a fantastic way to make your backsplash, countertop or flooring look brand-new without having to retile the entire area. Likewise, new caulk breathes life into old bathrooms, as well as door and window frames. Give our technicians a call to get started today. Caulking and grout repair are just two more of the ways we’re happy to help with our wide range of Dallas home services.

5. Replace or Repair Damaged Doors

Doors are an important part of your home, both on the inside and outside of your house. They provide privacy and security, and contribute to keeping your home energy efficient by preventing drafts. Inside, doors provide security and privacy—and are helpful for keeping your house looking tidy by hiding clutter in closets and pantries.

At Mr. Handyman of Dallas, our home service experts and carpenters can complete a wide range of door repairs, or replace your damaged doors entirely.

And, we can carry and place heavy furniture where you want it, so you don't have to worry about lifting or carrying it on your own.

7. Replace Dead Light Bulbs

Good lighting can make any home look warm and inviting. But if you have light bulbs that have burnt out, your once cozy space might look dark and gloomy. Besides, you also need to see what you're doing, and it can be frustrating if a room is too dark. Simple tasks like shaving or putting on makeup in the bathroom can be a struggle if your space is not properly lit. If you’re struggling to reach bulbs or need help with replacement for specialty lighting fixtures, one of our Dallas home service experts can help with that too.

8. Clean Dryer Vents

Did you know that dryer lint is highly flammable? In fact, roughly 15,970 fires are started yearly in the United States because of improperly cleaned dryer vents. Not to mention, clogged dryer vents can limit the machine's ability to work properly. Over time, this will put unnecessary wear on the machine and eventually cause it to break down.

Keep your home safe and prevent the risk of a fire with regular appointments for dryer vent cleaning This easy Dallas home service is often overlooked by homeowners who don't think it's a big deal. Since this job does require a bit of technical knowledge and specialty equipment, it's best to hire the home service pros at Mr. Handyman of Dallas to ensure it gets done right the first time.

9. Touch Up Exterior Trim Paint

It's not just the interior of your house that needs a little TLC every now and then. There are a number of jobs our Dallas home service experts can help with on your home's exterior as well. If painting the entire house is not realistic, but you still want to give your property a boost, then consider painting your trim instead. This task is significantly less work, and will still increase your curb appeal while refreshing your property's appearance. If you have questions about our exterior trim services, we’d be happy to give you more information.

10. Power Wash Surfaces

Power washing can make an incredible impact on your property's appearance. However, it is also a job that should only be handled with professional home services in Dallas. Power washers are able to blast away even the most stubborn grime and buildup because they emit an incredibly high-pressure stream of hot water (2,000 to 3,000 PSI to be exact). However, this means they can be a dangerous tool in untrained hands. You may accidentally damage your property, or worse, injure yourself or a loved one.

Yet, there are many benefits to pressure washing. It can get rid of stains, discoloration, dirt and bacteria. Additionally, pressure washing is an excellent way to strip away old paint from your fence or deck to prepare for refinishing.

11. Refinish Your Deck

Refinishing your deck not only improves the look of your outdoor space, but also helps prevent rot and other problems down the road. By hiring our home service pros to sand and stain your deck regularly, you'll help prevent damage from the sun, water and changing weather—and thus protect your wooden deck from rot and other sources of deterioration.

12. Gutter Cleaning

Hiring a professional to clean your gutters regularly is very important. Gutters safely transport water away from your home. This means they protect your property from water damage, soil erosion and more. If your gutters aren't cleaned regularly, you may find yourself needing gutter repair—or installation services for a new gutter system. Not to mention, suffering from issues like your basement flooding, attic flooding, structural damage to your home's foundation and a wide range of other problems.

Gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year, once in spring and once in the fall, to prevent damage. Since most homeowners prefer not to do this dirty and dangerous task on their own, our team of experts are more than happy to help.
