Don't Let Your Bathroom Leak Into Your Bad Books

The bathroom. Let’s not beat around the bush; it’s often the most neglected room in the house. But, it’s the room that everyone in your household is sure to use at least a few times a day. For the amount of time we spend there, it could be argued that it’s the most important room in the house. So, why do so many of us fail to get our bathrooms the way we want them? It’s a great mystery. Partly, it’s linked to some embarrassment we feel about lavishing luxury on the room in which we use the toilet. Let go of that idea, and realize that you deserve a bathroom you can enjoy. There are plenty of articles about how to create the bathroom of your dreams, so that’s not what we’re looking at today. Instead, we’re going to look at small problems that can lead to major dissatisfaction with your bathroom. That’s right; it's time to get serious about bathroom niggles!



LEAKING TAPS


Chances are, there’s not a household around that doesn’t have at least one leaking tap. It’s a problem that’s irritating and inconvenient. But, for the most part, we’re good at ignoring leaking taps. They don’t cause any major inconvenience, and it seems like the work to put them right wouldn’t be worth it. It’s time to stop thinking like that. Having a leaking tap in your bathroom can be irritating for many reasons. The sound of dripping can be distracting. How can you relax in the bath with a constant dripping sound? Not to mention the fact that it’s a significant waste of water. And, leaks only get worse when we don’t deal with them. Don’t hesitate to call on plumbing services to get the problem fixed. Or, if you think you’re up to the job, you could have a go at solving it yourself!

DAMP AND MOULD

The bathroom is damp by its very nature. There’s no getting around the fact that it’s a room containing moisture! What you can get round is the effect that water has. No one likes a damp bathroom. It looks horrible, causes damage to your walls, and isn’t great for your lungs! There are a few ways you can stop damp from building. Most importantly, you need to make sure you’re using your extractor fan when you shower. Make sure your family knows to do this, too. The extractor fan will clear the air, and make sure moisture doesn’t sit where it shouldn’t. It’s also worth opening windows wherever possible. Again, this clears the air!

A LACKLUSTER SHOWER

No one likes a weak shower. Do you find that you have trouble washing in the flow? Restricted water pressure can cause real issues, and leave you with unwanted soap residue. The best way around this is to buy a new shower head and remove the flow regulator. Many shower heads have instructions how to do this. If not, a little research should show you everything you need to know.

Here are just some of the things on how you can improve your bathroom. Fixing those nasty leaks also saves you money from your water bill! What are your tips on fixing bathroom leaks? Comment down below!
