DRYER VENT CLEANING
Anyone who has had to hang their laundry on a clothesline knows that a dryer is a convenience worth having. But a lot of people don't realize that their dryer vent can cause a catastrophic house fire if it's not cleaned on a regular basis.
Here's why: dryer lint is supposed to go into the lint trap, while the vent is used to remove hot, humid air from the dryer. But, over time, lint builds up in the vent where any tiny, otherwise harmless spark can light it on fire and send flames raging through your home.
Cleaning should be done annually, but may need to be more frequent for large families that produce a lot of laundry. Here are a few signs that your dryer vent needs cleaning:
- Laundry is not dry at the end of a cycle
- Clothes feel very hot when they come out of the dryer
- Clothes have a musty smell after being dried
- It takes more than about 30-45 minutes to dry a load of laundry
- There's visible lint and debris collected around the dryer vent opening
Regular dryer vent cleaning will give you peace of mind that your family and property are safe. As an added bonus, your dryer will function a lot more efficiently with a clean vent, saving you money and time!
How much time do you spend thinking about drywall? Probably not much, even though it is in almost every building in the United States. However, when it gets holes or cracks you can't help but notice it whenever you walk into the room.
It's not all about looks, either—damaged drywall allows heat and sound to travel through the walls more easily, which can have a huge negative impact on your energy bill, not to mention your peace and quiet. It can also really decrease the value of your home.
If your drywall is suffering from cracks, holes, scuffs, peeling tape, moisture damage, or a host of other issues, Mr. Handyman has the tools, materials, and know-how to get it in perfect shape. After patching or replacing your drywall, we'll make sure it's sanded and refinished so the repair is totally invisible. We'll even repair your crown molding and wainscoting, and rehang your pictures for the finishing touch!

When you're thinking of selling or renovating your home, want it protected from damage, or just want it looking its best, pressure washing is a must. Pressure washing increases your home's value and primes surfaces for professional home improvement services. It also removes dirt, grime, and bacteria that can damage your home and can't be scrubbed away with traditional cleaning methods.
Pressure washing is for much more than just siding, too. Here are a few of the many things that can be made to look new again with pressure washing:
- Decks, porches, and patios
- Outdoor play equipment
- Driveways and walkways
- Grills, lawnmowers, and other outdoor tools
It's also worth mentioning that it's really fun to see the dramatic difference before and after pressure washing! That's why there are hundreds of pressure washing videos on YouTube—seeing a brick patio, for example, that has been crusted with dirt and moss for decades become clean as a whistle just brings a certain sense of satisfaction.
