Considering that the bathroom tends to be an extremely wet area due to a fair amount of water being splashed while bathing, it can start to reveal some signs of wear and tear in vulnerable places. These are usually in the seams where a shower tray or bath tub meets the wall tiles.
Absence of correct sealing on the edges of wetrooms and shower trays can prove to be a big obstacle as they can be the vulnerable point where the water and mould eventually deteriorate and begin leaking water through and gradually causing damage to plasterboards.
Bath Sealing in Middle Green
A common symptom of this circumstance consists of a damp odour in the bathroom. In some cases, it can manifest on the lower floors first. A stain point will appear on the ceiling boards as a result of taking in water from the bathroom leaks above. Apart from such a stain being an eyesore, there is an imminent danger if there are electrical wires close to the boards.
Such a leak would have to be resolved rapidly by identifying the real dripping area and remedying at the earliest opportunity to prevent any danger from intensifying.
These sort of problems are common in bathroom locations for two main reasons. One is usually incorrect installation and insufficient sealing of the edges of bath tubs and shower trays. The other might be as a result of ageing.
Some plumbing professionals might fail to pick the best possible location for setting up a shower tray or bath tub which can result in dripping problems later on. For example, a shower head placed in an area close to the window might lead to the shower sprays falling on the window sill and stagnating there.
This can present a future problem just due to the fact that if the grouting or sealer utilised there is not water resistant and is considered ‘porous’, water will seep in and make its way to the underlying plaster and timber.
During building and repair, it’s best to ensure that your builder or technician uses high-quality water resistant grout and silicone in your bathroom as water tends to reach unexpected places in the bathroom during a shower.
Middle Green Shower Sealing
When it pertains to bath tubs, a common and re-occurring problem for most bath tubs appears to be caulking or sealing which cracks repeatedly. Some property owners are shocked. The silicon cracks or tends to pull away from the wall after a few months.
Bead size has a lot to do with it. The fact that the width of the opening in between the bath tub and the wall is irregular means that there will be sections that are larger while others are narrower, making it difficult to decide the best size bead to use.
If you use a larger bead, then you end up having an overflow in the narrower section without the silicon discovering its direction into the gap. When you select a smaller sized bead, your silicon winds up being inadequate in the bigger areas due to the fact that it disappears into the area without filling it.
The majority of property owners have shared that while choosing on DIY, they take care to prep the area to counter any moisture by thoroughly scrubbing and cleaning with alcohol and letting it dry out for a few days before the caulking. Despite this most people are doing a good job, but they still lament that it fails way quicker than they could have hoped.
One trick is to make sure that you fill the bath tub with water before caulking. This makes sure that the tub is at its ideal weight and stretched out to leave an optimal gap. Once you do, the silicon has a much better chance of remaining in place for longer, assuming you have done the preparation work well.
Shower Tray Problems
In some cases when handling a dripping shower tray, we have had to remove the tiles around the border of the tray. Further examination usually reveals damp plywood that is heavily water damaged particularly if it is not WPB marine plywood.
In one circumstance, we noticed that the border of the shower tray still had the plastic covering that it came in. It is such things that make it apparent that the preliminary installer was just what we describe as a cowboy builder, suggesting they did a poor fitting.
Sadly for the property owner, something that ought to have just been a fairly uncomplicated repair task, turns out to be a project, and you would not desire another cowboy builder botching the repair.
Contracting a highly regarded, careful and proficient technician is crucial in restoring a now complex matter without costing you an arm and a leg.
