The frequent use of water in the bathroom makes it extremely vulnerable to humid accumulation and possible damage to water. You will reduce water related incidents by inspecting it periodically.
The following set of inspections is simple to execute. This should be done about every three months to keep the bathroom in good condition and to avoid possible water damage from bathtub, shower, pipe joints and plumbing, sinks, cabinets, and toilet.
Do not neglect to carry out these inspections and be thorough while displaying them. Keep in mind that by providing early warnings for water damage, these simple inspections will save you a lot of money.
Shower and Bathtub
The bathtub and shower require special treatment and maintenance. Check the tiles, and if cracked replace them. Make sure no missing grout is between the tiles. Cracked caulking is inspected and replaced at joints where walls meet floor or bath. Problems with blocked drains and pipes prevent the tub from drying and can signify serious problems under the water. Immediately consult with a doctor to prevent structural damage. Please note discolorations or soft areas around the walls of the bathroom as they can suggest an internal leak.
Cabinets and Sinks
Sinks and cabinets are daily exposed to humidity and moisture, and are often overlooked. Inspect under the sink regularly, and above it on the countertop. Fix any gout in the trap because it can indicate drain issues. Check around the pool, a blocked drain can be demonstrated by slow draining pipes Remove seals in the drain, if broken or loose.
Water damage signs are difficult to detect since most pipes are mounted inside the walls.
Pay special attention to moisture and stains in floors and walls, as they may indicate an invisible problem with plumbing. Test the levels of moisture in adjacent rooms too.
The toilet itself is a vulnerable junction of water. Check the water lines and check for leaks around the seat at the toilet, in the hose, and under the tank. If you detect any signs of moisture on the floor around the toilet, check for leaks in the toilet rim and the tank seals.
Be aware that deodorants hanging from toilet bowls increase the chances of clogs.
