3 Pointers for a Mildew-Free Bathroom

3 Pointers for a Mildew-Free Bathroom

Leak detection is maddening for a novice DIY-er. It’s surprisingly easy to miss a leak or search unsuccessfully for the source. This is where mildew creeps in. As moisture invades your home, spores begin to grow.

Here are three ways to keep mold and mildew out of your bathroom:

1. Learn common signs of a leak.

Homeowners are often surprised at how easy it is to miss a leak until damage has set in. One of the best ways to keep track of potential leaks is by watching your water bill. If your costs are on the rise but your water use is not, there’s a chance you have a problem. Other signs of a leak include the sound of running water, even after you’ve closed all the taps, and smells of mold and mildew.

2. Check to see if the leak is inside or outside your home.

The Alderwood, WA, water department had sage advice for homeowners facing a mystery leak. Turn off the water main to your home. Then keep an eye on the meter. If your water usage continues to rise, the pipes outside your home are leaking. You’ll need to call the water company immediately to suspend service while you await repair.

3. Call a professional plumber for help.

Whether you have an outdoor leak or an indoor leak you can’t find, a professional plumber can help. Save money, control wasted water and prevent mildew and mold from overtaking your home by calling in help when it’s needed.

customer review

“We are truly grateful for everyone’s quick response to our flood in the main building here at St. Cyprian Church. The workers were tremendous in their search-and-find techniques to locate our buried sewer main line. The clean out was a difficult and tedious job but they stayed with it for hours. On Friday, business was as usual here and it would not have been if your company had not come out to the rescue. I’m sure the parishioners are happy to know that the bathrooms are available and that our problem has been eliminated. Be assured that your kindness and efficiency are appreciated. We are also grateful that you recognize our financial limitations. May our gracious God bless you all for your care.” –- St. Cyprian Staff
