Protect your home with bathroom sealing

Why bathroom sealing is important

Structural problems in a bathroom are a nightmare to deal with. No one wants to deal with issues of a leaking ceiling or some ugly water stains on the wall. During most DIY bathroom renovation projects, people overlook the importance of sealing their floors and walls. They simply lay tiles or lino over existing plasterboards or floorboards without any form of bathroom waterproofing. This will definitely keep your costs low but increase your chances of facing leakage problems in future. Here are some of the main reasons why bathroom sealing is important.

Stop any types of leaks

Gravity can be your friend or also become your worst enemy. Water will always follow the easiest route downwards. This means if there is a crack in your floor or wall, this is where the water will begin to seep through. Soon, the water will find its way down to the ground floor of your home. You will begin to notice that your walls and ceilings seem to be damp. You may even notice some water droplets forming on your lighting fixtures. If things get out of hand, the water may get into contact with electricity and this could spell disaster.

Prevent growth of microorganisms

Most pests and microorganisms thrive in damp areas. These microorganisms could lead to various health problems such as throat irritation, eye irritation, nasal stuffiness, coughing and even some form of skin irritation. To avoid any kind of infestation from getting into your bathroom it is important that you seal or waterproof any areas that remain damp for long periods of time.

Prevent mould and dampness

In most cases you will only see what goes on the surface of your walls and floor. You will be oblivious of what lies under. The dampness and rot on your walls will only be revealed when you are doing your remodelling. If you put a waterproof layer below your top layer, you can greatly reduce your chances of developing mould and damp within your walls and floor.

Insulation

Bathroom sealing will not only prevent a leaking shower but create a good insulator. Your walls will remain warm to the touch even during those harsh winter periods. This in turn will help in reducing your energy bills in the long run since you will save on heating costs.

Lower your maintenance costs

It goes without saying that no one wants to keep renovating their bathroom each year. High moisture content in certain areas of the bathroom can lead to blistering, cracking or peeling. Rotten floors and walls could even require the help of a professional making your costs even run higher during repairs. Sealing your bathroom walls and floors will ensure that you don’t have to keep renovating. This will in turn save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

Increase your property value

A bathroom that is well sealed will definitely increase your houses market value. People love quality and professional finishes are more attractive when it comes to the modern property market.

    Client Eddy & Kate
  • My Bathroom and Balcony were just recently sealed. Not only were the jobs done and completed to perfection. Both areas were left clean and tidy. Barry respected my home. (taking shoes off on carpet) Barry also did extra bits like unblocking a pipe that he noticed was blocked to assist with water retention.
    It’s not often you find good trustworthy tradesman – who take pride in their work and go the extra mile. I was also able to leave him in my home while I took my kids to Sport. I would highly recommend Elite Shower Repairs.
