Bathroom Maintenance: Problems to Remedy Immediately

Despite its small space, the bathroom is an important part of any home. However, no homeowner should be fooled by the size of a bathroom; no matter how small it is, it can bring a host of headaches for you if you don’t maintain it or fail to address the problems it’s currently facing.

Sewer Smells

Sewer odor is an unpleasant smell that no homeowner will want to experience and can come from clogs, mold or standing water due to leaks. You can easily get rid of this problem by properly ventilating the bathroom. But if it doesn’t work, it’s possible that the sewer gas is coming from the drains. Once this occurs, call a plumber to fix this issue immediately.

Clogs

While not a major problem, clogs in your sink and toilet can be an annoying issue. Thankfully, they’re fairly easy to remedy: simply take a plunger, and use it to pump the sink or toilet to unclog the pipes. If a plunger doesn’t do the trick, you may need to use a drain snake or toilet auger to get rid of the clog.

Poor Ventilation

Bathrooms deal with moisture and humidity on a daily basis so ventilation is a very important component for any bathroom. If you notice that the humidity lingers longer after your shower, have a professional inspect the vents as the fans might be damaged or improperly installed. Otherwise, mold and mildew can grow in your bathroom.

Mold

Mold is the side effect of poor bathroom ventilation and is an issue that shouldn’t be taken lightly since mold spores can negatively affect your health. With that in mind, once you spot suspicious spots on your wall, make sure to have them removed by a professional right away to minimize the risks of mold growth.

Leaks

Faucet or shower head leaks are issues that can easily cause your water bills to skyrocket. Thankfully, like clogs, they can be easily fixed on your own or with the aid of professionals like the plumbers at Handyman Connection® of Boise. Should you opt to do it on your own, remove the fixture, and take it to the hardware store first for advice before you do anything else. That way you can determine if a mere part or the entire fixture needs to be replaced.
