Keep your bathroom in good shape and to prevent potential water damages

Preventing Water Damage In The Bathroom

Bristol, Tennessee ~ Home Improvement The frequent use of water in the bathroom makes it extremely vulnerable for moist accumulation and potential water damage. By inspecting it regularly, you can reduce water related damages.

  1. Bathtub And Shower
  2. Plumbing
  3. Sinks And Cabinets
  4. The Toilet
The following set of inspections is easy to perform and should be done once in every three months in order to keep your bathroom in good shape and to prevent potential water damages caused by the bathtub, the shower, pipe joints and plumbing, sinks, cabinets, and the toilet

Do not neglect performing these inspections and be thorough while performing them. Keep in mind that these simple inspections can save you a lot of money by providing early indications for water damage

Bathtub And Shower

The shower and bathtub require special attention and maintenance. Check the tiles and replace if cracked. Make sure that there is no missing grout between the tiles. Inspect and replace cracked caulking at joints where the walls meet the floor or the bathtub. Clogged drains and pipes problems will prevent the bathtub from drying and may indicate serious problems beneath the bathtub. Consult with a professional immediately to prevent structural damage. Pay attention to discolorations or soft areas around the bathtub walls as they may indicate an internal leak.

Plumbing

Signs for water damage are hard to detect since most pipes are installed inside the walls.

Pay special attention to flooring and walls moisture and stains as they may indicate an invisible plumbing problem. Check moisture levels in adjoining rooms as well.

Sinks And Cabinets

Sinks and cabinets are exposed to moisture and humidity daily and are often overlooked. Inspect regularly under the sink and on the countertop above it. Repair any drip in the trap as it may suggest drain problems. Look around the sink, slow draining pipes may indicate a blocked drain. Replace sink seals if they are cracked or loose.

The Toilet

The toilet is a vulnerable water junction. Check the water lines and search for leaks around the toilet seat, in the hose, and under the water tank. If you detect any signs of moisture on the floor around the toilet, check for leaks in the toilet rim and tank seals.

Be aware that hanging toilet bowl deodorants increases the chances for clogs.
