Dangers of a Leak Under Your Tub
One of the dangers of keeping a tub in the same spot for years or decades, is the possibility of a leak developing underneath, where no one can see. One a leak has started, it can take some time before you notice, and by then half the floor underneath the tub may be rotted away. Sometimes, the leak can end up affecting electrical circuitry from the floor below. Mold and mildew are also possible from a leak under the tub, potentially affecting the health of people in the house.
Why Bother with Routine Maintenance?
One way that a lot of homeowners combat the issue of hidden leaks in the bathroom, is to have routine maintenance performed on their plumbing system every so often. When a professional technician comes in and gives the system a once-over, you’ll know if there are any small leaks and if your tub or shower is affected. Maintenance is a good piece of preventative medicine that will save you money on large-scale repairs in the future.
The Value of Professional Repair and Installation
It is possible to follow a DIY approach to shower and tub installation, but it’s very important that you know what you’re doing. There are building codes and bylaws to consider, not to mention which actions, if any, can void your warranties. Creating the proper seals and tying each fixture into the plumbing system correctly is also a factor, unless there needs to be modifications to the plumbing system before you even begin.
Although shower and tub repair or installation seems relatively straightforward, it is a complex process with a lot of room for error. If you need repairs or want a new tub or shower installed, do yourself a favor and call Bellows Plumbing, Heating & Air for fast turnarounds and quality workmanship.
