Avoid Leaking In The Bathroom

The bathroom is one area in the house that tends to be always wet and has the potential to be a source of humidity. However the concept and design of the bathroom, it is likely to occur seepage and leak. Leaks and seepage can arise from piping of clean water (shower, bathtub, sink, toilet), the crack on the tile grout, bathtub or other water reservoirs, as well as sewers. The problem will be more serious if seepage penetrates the walls or floors of other rooms around the bathroom. The emergence of seepage stains and the growth of mould or mildew due to high humidity will reduce the beauty of the interior and can slowly damage the material. Not to mention if the bathroom is on the top floor and the space below it is the living room, bedroom, and so on. Of course, it will interfere with comfort, right? That is why you need to regrout and reseal shower with the help of a professional.

When construction is carried out, ensure that the application of waterproof construction in the bathroom area. From underground construction to wall construction, floors and bathtubs, water-resistant specimens must be used – a mixture of cement and sand is made. Water-resistant construction must also be applied to structural concrete floors if the bathroom is on the upper floor. Water-resistant construction works must be even more careful because handling seepage or leaking in the bathroom upstairs will be much more difficult. Concrete casting must be done properly, the dough has a uniform thickness, once finished cast, and does not dry too quickly.

Anti-scratch specifications must also be applied to the floor and wall coatings, which include plastering, as well as finishing – paints, tiles, natural stones, etc. Use a mortar that is mixed with waterproof additives for plastering or tile mate species on walls, bath floors. Apply to all surfaces and can be repeated for parts that are crucial and potentially more leaky or leaking, such as clean water pipelines (to bathtubs, showers, bathtubs, toilets, and sinks), as well as dirty drains (including the floor drain area). For bathrooms upstairs, this waterproof coating material should be applied 3-4 layers before the tile tile. Each layer is added in the opposite direction.
