WHITEWRIGHT DRYER VENT CLEANING
Automatic clothes dryers tend to get taken for granted by people who don't realize how convenient and time saving they are, but if you have ever had to hang your laundry out on a clothesline to dry, or haul it down to the local laundromat, you can fully appreciate your clothes dryer for the modern marvel it really is. But did you know your dryer actually needs something from you? It simply can't continue to function efficiently and safely without professional dryer vent cleaning.
Here's why it’s important: normally, lint and other debris gets caught up in the lint trap, while the vent hose or pipe is used to vent hot, humid air out of the dryer so it can dry your laundry. But over time, lint works its way into the duct and coats the interior, partially or completely blocking the flow of air. Because it can't vent properly, the dryer needs to operate for much longer to dry your clothes. That means it uses more energy, which increases the amount you have to pay on your utility bill.
While nobody wants to pay more than necessary for utilities, that is not the worst part of a clogged dryer vent. An overworked dryer may also create a spark that sets the highly flammable lint on fire, sending flames ripping through the walls of your home. Tragically, this happens a lot more often than most people think — in fact, 2,900 clothes dryer fires are reported every year in the United States. The leading cause of those fires, accounting for more than a third of them, is failure to clean the dryer. You can help reduce the risk of fire by always cleaning out your lint trap after every load of laundry—and by getting professional cleaning from a local Whitewright handyman.
But how can you tell if your Whitewright home needs dryer vent cleaning? Here are the key warning signs to watch out for:
- It takes more than around 30 to 45 minutes to dry a full load of laundry
- Clothes need more than one cycle to get completely dry
- There is visible lint gathered around the dryer vent opening outside
- Fabric is very hot or has a musty smell after drying
- It has been more than one year since it was last cleaned
Some people use their dryer once per week, and others use it multiple times per day, so it is difficult to say exactly how frequently you need dryer vent cleaning. However, for a typical single-family home, professional cleaning once per year is usually adequate to keep the dryer running safely and efficiently. Large families that produce a lot of laundry or multi-family dwellings with shared laundry facilities may need cleaning as often as every six months.
BATHROOM REMODELING SERVICES IN WHITEWRIGHT, TX
Is your bathroom your favorite room in the house? With the right bathroom remodeling services, it could be an oasis of calm for rejuvenation and relaxation. If it feels more like a room that you have to use and can't wait to leave, it is definitely time to consider starting a bathroom renovation project. Our Whitewright handyman services will help with that.
Planning a bathroom remodel is a fun challenge. This is a big opportunity to infuse your home with your own personality and sense of style, or choose a classic, neutral style that will increase your property value when it comes time to sell. If you are not sure how to accomplish the latter, white tile is a good place to start. All-white bathrooms are increasingly in style because they have a crisp, modern look. If that seems a little bland, remember you can always add color with textiles and decor.
Our Whitewright bathroom remodeling services include:
- Tile installation
- Bathtub to shower conversions
- Mirror installation
- Shower door installation & repair
If you are concerned about straining your budget, remember that you don't necessarily need to overhaul the entire bathroom to make a big impact on the way the room looks and functions. For example, if you never use your bathtub, removing it to make way for a large, tiled walk-in shower with all the bells and whistles can make all the difference in how you feel about your bathroom.

WHITEWRIGHT DRYWALL REPAIR SERVICES
We all spend the majority of our time, whether we are at home, at work, or in public buildings, completely surrounded by drywall — but most people rarely give it a second thought. That's understandable. Drywall is not the most thrilling or even noticeable building material, but when it has suffered damage, suddenly everyone notices it.
Drywall damage isn't just an unattractive cosmetic problem, though. Cracks, holes, moisture damage, and more can waste your hard-earned money, and make your home a lot less comfortable and harmonious.
Here are some of the unpleasant effects of damaged drywall:
- Increased energy bills due to air from your HVAC systems escaping through holes in the wall
- Decreased sound separation between rooms, which is a big problem if you live with someone who likes to crank up the tunes or do some furniture moving in the middle of the night
- Higher risks of rodent and insect infestations
If you have drywall damage in a commercial property, it can even lower your business credibility with customers who are judging a book by its cover. Fortunately, we’re here to help with our Whitewright handyman services.
Our expert handyman team will take care of every part of the drywall repair process, including removing damaged drywall, hanging new sheets, joint taping, mudding, and sanding. We will also handle drywall painting on the affected area so the repair is completely invisible when we are finished, and we can even rehang your framed photos and curtains for the finishing touches.
Why Is My Drywall Damaged?
There is actually more to drywall repair than just drywall-related tasks, which is why it is particularly useful to have a multi-skilled Whitewright handyman on your side. You may know exactly why your drywall is damaged — a careless amateur karate move or naughty pet, for example — but sometimes it is a complete mystery.
If you don't know what caused the issue with your drywall, our Whitewright handyman service pros will track the damage to its source and repair that as well, so you don't have to deal with the stress and expense of more damaged drywall in a few weeks or months.

Is Gutter Cleaning Really Necessary?
Making sure your rain gutters are clean and in good condition is absolutely necessary. Doing so will protect your home against severe water damage that can range from a leaky roof to a cracked foundation slab, and everything in between.
Did you know that just one inch of rain on a 2,000 square foot roof produces 1,280 gallons of water? Whitewright gets more than 43 inches of rain per year, considerably more than the national average of 38 inches. That is a significant amount of water, and it is all collected by your gutters and channeled safely into downspouts where it can be disposed of away from your house — unless your gutters are overflowing or broken, in which case the water spills over the edge and has a wide range of negative effects.
If you are not particularly interested in climbing up on a wobbly ladder to spend hours scooping handfuls of rotten muck out of your gutters, don't worry — our Whitewright handyman service pros can get your gutters spotlessly clean, and we will repair any breaks or weak points while we're at it. We can also install gutter guards, which cover the top of the gutter to prevent it from filling up so fast with dead leaves and other debris.
