Let’s be real for a moment. Nothing lasts forever. This includes your perfect remodel or brand new bathroom. Overtime things breakdown and will need to be repaired or replaced. Most of the issues that happen in the bathroom need to be addressed as soon as possible, such as a clogged drain or removing mold. If they are left for too long, not only does it affect the daily activities of your family, but it could be an expensive repair bill that could be avoided. Here are some of the most common bathroom repairs that happen.
- Mold: The bathroom handles a lot of moisture especially with multiple people in the house and how warm each person likes their showers. If there’s not enough ventilation, mold and mildew can grow even with regular cleaning. The spores are extremely stubborn to remove, especially the more they establish themselves. They can also trigger severe allergic reactions and upper respiratory tract issues.
- Poor Ventilation: That ventilation fan that’s in the ceiling actually plays a huge role in your bathroom. It helps reduce moisture and humidity in the bathroom to prevent mold, mildew, and other damage over time. Unfortunately, a lot of people stop using it because it’s too loud or it just stops working altogether.
- Leaky Shower Head or Faucet: There will always be a couple of drips that happen right after you turn off the shower or faucets. It turns into an issue when you come back later on and it’s still dripping. Slow drips still indicate a leak and will increase your water bill throughout the month. It can also lead to a much bigger issue or an expensive repair bill. The sooner you get a leaky faucet fixed the better.
- Slow or Clogged Drains: Slow drains usually indicate a clog of some kind. It might just be a build-up of soap scum and hair or there might be a bigger issue. If you’re first noticing it, the best thing is to use a drain snake tool to try and get out whatever is stuck down there. If you’re not able to fix the issue, a plumber will need to be called. You shouldn’t wait to see if the issue will fix itself because chances are it’ll only get worse.
