Our Experts Explain How To Prevent Water Damage In Your Brandon Bathroom
Inspecting Your Bathroom In Your Brandon Home To Prevent Water Damage
The bathroom in your Brandon home is undoubtedly used frequently, making it very vulnerable to the accumulation of moisture and potential water damage. If you inspect it regularly, you can lower your chance of water-related accidents.
If your bathroom has become a victim of any water damage in your Brandon home, recruiting the assistance of a professional remediation company is a wise idea. At SERVPRO, our staff knows how to clean up water damage of any kind and do it promptly so we can prevent additional damage.
Your bathtub and shower need special attention and maintenance. Any cracked tiles need to be replaced, and make sure there is no missing caulking where the walls meet the floor or bathtub. Clogged drains and problems with your pipes prevent the tub from dying and can indicate a severe problem underneath the tub. If SERVPRO techs find any issues in this area, we check to see if there is structural damage, besides finding the issue causing the water damage. Any damaged subflooring or drywall may need to be replaced if the damage is too severe.
Plumbing problems are more difficult to detect because most pipes are installed inside your walls. Pay particular attention to walls and flooring for moisture and stains since they can indicate a plumbing problem that is unseen. We can use moisture meters to find any hidden moisture if nothing is evident to see the problem causing the damage.
Cabinets and sinks are daily exposed to moisture and humidity but can be overlooked. Regularly inspect under your sink and the countertop above it. Slow draining pipes can indicate a blockage in the drain. Any sink seals that are loose or cracked need to be replaced.
The toilet is a vulnerable water junction. Look for leaks at the water lines, around the toilet seat, under the water tank, and in the hose. If you find any signs of moisture on the floor, look for leaks in the tank seals and toilet rim. Toilet leaks or overflows from clogs can create massive water damage, even affecting the room underneath if it is an upstairs bathroom. If needed, we can get rid of any standing water from an overflow and dry any structural components which have been affected.
