Your bathroom is a high-traffic area of your home, so it should be designed to withstand years of heavy use. However, the reality is often far from the ideal situation. When your bathroom starts to exhibit signs of wear and tear, know that there are things you can do to improve the situation.
In this blog post, LuxStone of Colorado, one of the leading walk-in tub installation companies in the area, discusses common bathroom problems and explains how our products and services can solve them.
Shower Pan Problems
Shower pans, typically made of lead or vinyl, are installed under the tile floor of a shower to catch any water that may seep through, preventing water from leaking into the room. These shower pans age and deteriorate over time, resulting in leaks that can cause mold growth near the base of the shower. Other problems that could arise include pans that flex or bend underfoot.
Various factors such as improper installation or subpart materials can also cause your shower pan to fail. To avoid this, the best course of action to take is to work with a reliable shower and walk-in tub conversion contractor like LuxStone of Colorado.
As the human body ages, mobility can be compromised. Needless to say, weak knees and a slippery bathroom floor is not a good combination. While you can’t stop aging, you can improve accessibility in your home, starting with your bathroom. Low step-in heights for walk-in baths, wider doors and multiple touch points make getting in and out of the tube easier and safer.
