We think that you know that the toilet is the most vulnerable water junction in your entire house. Toilet leaks often include clean water and sewer water that can cause both structural damages and can be hazardous to your health. Control for leaks around the toilet seat, on the water supply line, and under the tank. If you see any signs of moisture on the floor around the toilet. Always switch out broken parts as soon as you can, if you wait the problem could escalate quickly into a health problem. Bathroom water damage may have already occurred if the floor feels soft, or your toilet rocks.
Install an Exhaust Fan
To maintain low levels of humidity, installing an exhaust fan is the most important thing you can do in the bathroom. If you do not already have a fan in your bathroom you can purchase one from a local home improvement store and install it yourself, easily. By circulating the air, the exhaust fan ventilates the bathroom and prevents damp air overloads, in an indirect way this prevents bathroom water damage. Its recommended to use it during and following baths or showers to prevent moisture build-up.
A bathroom shower is exposed to a substantial amount of water every day and may require further attention to ensure it is well maintained. You should control the tiles in your shower and replace any cracked or damaged tiles. To prevent water from dripping behind the tiles, be sure to routinely check that there is no missing grout between tiles. If there is, it needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
Sinks and Cabinets
The sinks and cabinets are often exposed to moisture and high humidity levels but are unfortunately usually overlooked. Inspect under the sink regularly for signs of mold or moisture, also check the countertop above it. You have to repair any drip in the trap as it may lead to more serious drain problems. Check around the sink also, as slow draining pipes may indicate a blockage. If you see that sink seals are cracked or loose, replace them immediately. This prevents possible bathroom water damage.
