What You May Not Realize About Bathroom Remodeling and Water Damage
If You're Seeking a Bathroom Remodel, Here's How Menold Prevents Future Water, Mold, and Moisture From Damaging Your Home:
Showers and bathtubs: It is important that all tiles are formed together tightly. If there's a crack or any unevenness, moisture is invited in to reside. While tiny cracks may not seem like much now, it stands the chance of harboring black mold. This goes for the caulking around the tub and shower areas. Sealing all these areas is specifically important.
Air flow: Proper ventilation is required to prevent excess moisture from building up. Allow proper air flow in your bathroom, by using your home air conditioner or a dehumidifier to offset the dampness. An exhaust fan is a must and making sure it's appropriate for your area can help curb moisture in the air from steamy showers or baths.
Plumbing: Sealing your toilet, sinks, and faucets prevent water from constantly leaking out, which can lead to structural damage. This is crucial, but also, surveillance is required. We make sure you know where your pipes are located in the walls, in cabinets, and elsewhere so you can check for soft spots appearing on your paint or wallpaper, or on your vanity cabinets.
