Are you aware that 70% of your monthly water use is used in your bathroom alone? It is no surprise then to realize that your bathroom is statistically the most susceptible to water damage. It is with this knowledge in mind that Thistle DKI in Las Vegas would like to share some very simple tips to help you prevent water damage in your bathroom. Preventing water damage in your home is also one good way to prevent mold.

Prevention:

Around the Shower or Tub

- Be sure that the water is drained immediately after bathing. - Remember that the longer the water is in the bathtub the more possibility there is for it to leak. 
- Avoid overfilling your bathtub when you decide to soak in the tub. Try not to splash water on the tile, and if you do, remember to clean it up as quickly as possible. 
- On the same note, invest in a low flow faucet in order to prevent splashing and to conserve water. 

Toilet

- Frequently check to ensure that your toilet tank or bowl does not have any cracks in it
- In order to help with your water bill and to ensure that leaking is even more at a minimum, consider using a water conserving toilet

Other Bathroom Fixtures

- If there is an exhaust fan in the bathroom, you’ll need to ensure that the duct is connected to the outside of the home. That being checked, always use it when you are going to shower or bathe. 
- Ensure that the tiles in your bathroom, specifically those around the tub, shower, and toilet are intact, along with the grout
- Check for moisture in the walls and floors

Going Out of Town? 

- Remember, if you are going out of town any amount of time, especially an extended period of time, it is best to turn off the water to the bathroom to avoid any additional leaking. 

If you are to discover water damage already existing in your bathroom, it is possible that you will attempt the repairs yourself. Should you find that the repair is too big of an issue, remember that Thistle DKI is a professional restoration company, prepared to assist you in making the necessary repairs.
