Bathroom Maintenance

By Area

Everyone likes a clean, bright, dry bathroom with a complete set of working parts. But when a bathroom gets a full workout of use over time, that clean bright room can end up dingy and leaking, presenting an unpleasing condition.

Showers and bathtubs are one of the first components that can fail in a bathroom. A failure of the shower or bathroom could have a negative effect on other parts of the room and the whole house. When the caulk fails in a shower or bathroom, the subsequent leak could allow water to get into the walls or under the flooring. In this event, damage to the walls, the floor, and even into the floor below is a possibility.

The toilet is another point of weakness in the maintenance of a bathroom. Over time, the sealing ring at the base of the toilet can get worn out or brittle, allowing water to seep out of the toilet and onto the floor. This failure could also damage the bathroom’s floor and any room underneath.

One device that can help you keep your bathroom dry and clean is the bathroom exhaust fan. Keeping up the maintenance to this device is essential to its efficient performance in keeping your bathroom dry. Over time, the exhaust fan will become coated with dust and dirt, losing efficiency. Removing the cover, cleaning it and then cleaning is the first step towards a pristine fan. The whole fan and motor assembly also needs to be cleaned along with the exhaust vent and fan housing.
