The term bathroom sink problem is often used interchangeably with the more common bathroom shower problem, which is leaking pipes, tiles, etc. What many people fail to realize is that a bathroom sink/shower drain problem can actually arise from a completely different source, usually on the same floor as the shower. Bathroom sinks are often made from fluted (or conical) copper, which is a very rigid material. As a result, problems can occur when this rigid surface warps, develops mildew, moulds and leaks. These issues occur when the floor around the sink or shower drain becomes compromised by either over or under pressure.
“A leaking bathtub can be hard to detect, since the damage is usually hidden. Serious instances can even lead to damage to your ceilings, plastering, painting or the floor in the adjacent room beneath your shower. Unfortunately, most bathroom repairs are relatively simple and won’t require any major plumbing repairs. But it’s crucial to get your repairs completed as soon as possible, because over time, a leaking bathtub can cause long term damage to your ceilings, walls and/or tiles. If the leak is located within your tile area, you could experience the development of mold, mildew and water damage throughout your house.
Most bathroom repairs are relatively easy, particularly if they involve minimal tile damage, mildew or mold. However, if you notice any signs of leaking pipes, mildew or water damage (especially around light switches and knobs), you should get in touch with a bathroom surgeon as soon as possible. A bathroom surgeon will be able to identify the exact cause of your leaking pipe, thereby eliminating costly future repairs. Additionally, a bathroom surgeon will be able to assist you in determining whether you need new tiles or simply have your existing tiles replaced with superior quality tiles. You may also be able to have your entire shower rebuilt, eliminating the need for more expensive replacement pieces.
