Springdale Tile Installation
Tile has a lot going for it, including beauty, durability, and versatility. Because there is such a wide array of colors, shapes, sizes, textures, materials, and styles available, a new tile installation is the perfect way to infuse your home with your own personality and sense of taste—or choose a classic, neutral option that will increase your property value when it comes time to sell.
From wall tiles in a kitchen backsplash to a tiled shower floor, our tile experts have extensive experience installing all types of tiles, even in irregularly shaped rooms and difficult-to-reach areas.
The types of tile we install include:
- Ceramic & porcelain
- Natural stone such as slate, marble, travertine, limestone & granite
- Quarry tiles
- Mosaic tiles
Though they don't technically qualify as tiles, we can also handle flooring installation for materials such as vinyl and laminate planks or tiles, along with many other types of flooring materials.
Springdale Dryer Vent Cleaning
Some people don't really appreciate how great their automatic clothes dryer is, but anyone who has ever had to hang laundry on a clothesline to dry definitely gets it. It's such a convenient time-saver and can even help preserve the quality of your fabric by keeping it out of direct sunlight. But few people are aware that their dryer needs something from them to continue functioning safely and efficiently: dryer vent cleaning.
Under normal circumstances, fabric lint and other debris such as dryer sheets gets caught in the lint trap and the vent is used to rid the dryer of hot, humid air from your damp laundry. But over time, lint makes its way into the vent too, where it builds up and partially or completely obstructs the flow of air out of the dryer. This causes the dryer to lose efficiency and use a lot more energy to dry your clothes, which increases the amount you have to pay on your utility bill.
While paying more than necessary for energy costs isn't a good thing, a clogged dryer vent can have much more serious consequences. That struggling dryer can create a spark that sets all that flammable lint on fire, sending flames racing through multiple levels of your home inside the walls. Unfortunately, this happens a lot more often than people in Stamford tend to think. The truth is,2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported every year in the United States, resulting in an estimated five deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. Failure to clean the dryer vent causes 34% of these tragic fires, and that's why it's so critical to have your dryer vent professionally cleaned. You can help maintain it by always cleaning out the lint trap after every load of laundry.
But how do you know if the dryer vent in your Springdale home needs to be cleaned? Here are a few warning signs to watch out for:
- It takes more than about 30 to 45 minutes to dry a load of laundry
- Clothes are still damp at the end of one cycle
- Fabric is very hot or has a musty smell after drying
- Clothes are covered in lint after drying
- It's been more than a year since it was cleaned
Some families only use their dryer once per week in Stamford, while others use it multiple times per day, so it's difficult to say exactly how often the vent needs to be professionally cleaned. The general rule of thumb is once per year for a single-family dwelling, though large families that produce a lot of laundry or multi-family homes may need vent cleaning as frequently as every six months.

Pressure Washing in Springdale, Stamford
If you've never seen pressure washing in action, you might be wondering what the big deal is. A pressure washer is capable of producing pressures that range between 750 and 3,000 psi (pound-force per square inch). That's strong enough to blast away stubborn grime and stains from your outdoor surfaces that other cleaning methods simply can't touch.
By comparison, a typical faucet in Stamford clocks in at around 40 to 60 psi in Stamford. You'll be surprised and impressed by the difference a pressure washer can make. For example, if you have an old masonry patio that is covered in dirt and moss, you might not even know what color it really is until it gets a good pressure washing.
Springdale Door Installation & Repair
Your exterior doors are an indispensable part of your home. Obviously you need them to get in and out of the house, but they also have a huge role to play in keeping your home energy efficient, protecting against intruders, and boosting your curb appeal. When your exterior doors are in poor condition, they can't do their job to keep your home secure and sound. Luckily our talented team of handymen have completed dozens of door repairs and replacements in Stamford. We can get your exterior doors in excellent shape, so you can rest easy knowing your house's first line of defense is doing what it should to protect your property.
In Springdale—and throughout Stamford—we are often asked the question, “does my door need to be repaired or replaced?” The answer really comes down to the extent of the damage. If it's a relatively small issue, like peeling paint or loose hinges, in all likelihood your Springdale handyman could simply complete a basic repair and call it a day. But if the damage is more severe or widespread, replacement will usually be more cost-effective than repair. Here are some of the warning signs that your exterior door needs to be replaced:
- Cold drafts coming from the door area, even when it's closed
- Visible light around the edges of the door
- Rotten wood on the door or frame
- The door is difficult to open and close
- Insect damage such as maze-like holes or channels
- The door feels lighter than it used to or sounds hollow when tapped
- Reduced noise separation from outdoor sounds
