WINDOW REPAIR IN RESTON, VA
Natural light, fresh breezes, and of course, the views... windows are one of the best features of our homes, and the main thing standing between Reston homes and, well, cave dwellings. When they're in need of repair, they can cause some serious issues that make your home uncomfortable and cost you an arm and a leg on your utility bill.
When we think of broken windows, smashed glass tends to come to mind, but there are some more subtle signs that indicate your windows need attention from Mr. Handyman.
Watch for these symptoms:
- Cool drafts near windows, even when they're closed
- Rotten wood on frames
- Insects finding their way in through window frames or screens
- Heating and cooling costs are increasing even though your usage is not
- Windows are difficult to open and close
- Noise from outside is disturbing you when windows are closed
Whatever the issue, our handyman window experts can repair your window woes or complete environmentally friendly window installations that will drastically increase your home's energy efficiency.
DRYER VENT CLEANING IN RESTON, VA
Anyone who has ever had to dry their laundry by hanging it on a clothesline knows how important automatic clothes dryers are to save time, but many Reston homeowners are not aware that failing to clean their dryer vents creates a serious hazard to their home and family.
Normally, lint and other debris go into the lint trap, while the vent is used to rid the dryer of hot, humid air, but over time, lint and other materials make their way into the ventilation hose, partially or completely obstructing the airflow. This can cause the dryer to produce a tiny spark that sets highly flammable lint ablaze inside the vent, sending flames ripping through multiple levels of your home. But how do you know if your dryer vent needs cleaning? Here are some signs to be aware of:
- Clothes are not dry at the end of one cycle
- Takes more than about 30 to 45 minutes to dry clothes
- Laundry has a musty smell or is very hot after drying
- Visible lint around the vent opening (outside)
For safety, your dryer vent needs to be cleaned at least once per year, but large families that produce a lot of laundry may need cleaning services as often as every six months.
