Bathroom Maintenance Tips
When asked about the hierarchy of rooms in their home, most homeowners rank their bathroom at or very near the top of their list. This room is versatile and withstands the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Yet, despite this room’s versatility and above average ability to deal with wear and tear, it still needs some TLC of its own.
Home maintenance services that focus on your bathroom are an integral part of Mr. Handyman’s professional handyman service line-up. Whether your bathroom project is small or is a multi-day project, Mr. Handyman brings attention to detail and quality workmanship to every job. If you're undertaking a bathroom maintenance project, here are a few basic, helpful hints and cautions from Mr. Handyman:
- Water damage. Despite your bathroom’s water tight capabilities, water is still able to find a crack or and work its way in and wreaking havoc on your home. Maintaining your water tight surfaces is key. This includes tile repair, laminate upkeep and the like. If water damage does occur, fix it as soon as possible to cut down on the chance that mold and rot will begin infesting your space.
- Maintain your plumbing. Older or overworked piping systems can leak or burst, especially during extreme weather. This issue can be a huge headache for any homeowner. Avoiding the pitfalls of flooding out your home is vital to the health of your living spaces. When finding the source of a leak, don't assume you need to tear down all of the walls. Make a few, small exploratory cuts and identify the cause of the leak first and foremost. Learn more about our plumbing services.
- Replace bathroom fixtures. Your shower, tub, sink and toilet are all designed to deal with certain stressors. Oftentimes, these stressors are exceeded in some way and your fixture becomes a hindrance to your home’s comfort. Proper routine maintenance of these fixtures will ensure that your bathroom remains an ally in maintaining comfort within your home. This maintenance can include faucet repair, shower head servicing or replacement, leaky toilet maintenance and so on.
- Design updates. When you want to upgrade your bathroom, it doesn't need to be an expensive remodel. Instead, consider regrouting, caulking around the tub and shower, replacing the floors, installing a new vanity, and putting in a new mirror and towel racks. Read about minor bathroom makeovers.
