Wet Walls Glasgow, Scotland

The bathroom’s regular usage of water makes it particularly susceptible to moisture buildup and possible water damage. You can prevent
water damage by checking it on a regular basis.

The following checks are simple to carry out and should be carried out once every three months to maintain your bathroom in excellent
working condition and to avoid possible water damage caused by the bathtub, shower, pipe joints and plumbing, sinks, cupboards, and
the toilet.

These checks should not be overlooked, and they should be carried out thoroughly. Keep in mind that these basic checks may help you
save a lot of money by detecting water damage early on.

Shower and Bathtub

Showers and bathtubs need extra care and upkeep. Check the tiles for cracks and repair them if necessary. Make sure the grout between
the tiles isn’t missing. At the places where the walls meet the floor or the bathtub, inspect and repair broken caulking. Drains and pipes
that are clogged will hinder the bathtub from drying and may signal severe issues underneath the tub. To avoid structural damage, see an
expert right away. Keep an eye out for discolouration or mould on the bathtub walls, since these may signal an interior leak.

Plumbing pipes

Because most pipes are placed within the walls, signs of water damage are difficult to detect.

Pay close attention to dampness and stains on the floors and walls, since these may signal a hidden plumbing issue. Check the humidity
levels in adjacent rooms as well.

Cabinets and sinks

Sinks and cabinets are constantly exposed to moisture and humidity and are often forgotten. Inspect beneath the sink and on the
countertop above it on a regular basis. Any leak in the trap should be repaired since it may indicate a problem with the drain. Examine the
area surrounding the sink for slow-draining pipes, which may suggest a clogged drain. If the sink seals are broken or loose, they should
be replaced.

WC Toilet pan

A susceptible water junction is the toilet. Examine the water lines for leaks around the toilet seat, in the hose, and under the water tank.
Check for leaks in the toilet rim and tank seals if there are any indications of dampness on the floor surrounding the toilet.

Keep in mind that deodorants that are hung from the toilet bowl may cause blockages.
