What You May Not Realize About Bathroom Remodeling and Water Damage

When we make the decision to remodel our homes, it’s because we want positive change. For some, this is easily accomplished, but for others, changing up the old can reveal a dark, nasty mess underneath. In the case of bathroom remodels this is especially true. Homeowners who contract a remodelling project can find mould and water damage underneath layers of tile, in the plumbing, and even in the walls! This is no reason to delay your remodelling dreams!

In fact, IBX Services loves handling projects like this because we are highly experienced in restoration services. We truly remodel the foundation and the surface of homes, especially the bathroom. A modern bathroom is not possible without comprehensive construction. We will clean up existing water and mould damage and we don’t stop there; we also take the necessary steps to prevent future water and mould from wrecking your home.

Prevent Future Water, Mold, and Moisture From Damaging Your Home:

Showers and bathtubs: It is important that all tiles are formed together tightly. If there’s a crack or any unevenness, moisture is invited in to reside. While tiny cracks may not seem like much now, it stands the chance of harbouring black mould. This goes for the caulking around the tub and shower areas. Sealing all these areas is specifically important.

Airflow: Proper ventilation is required to prevent excess moisture from building up. Allow proper airflow in your bathroom, by using your home air conditioner or a dehumidifier to offset the dampness. An exhaust fan is a must and making sure it’s appropriate for your area can help curb moisture in the air from steamy showers or baths.

Plumbing: Sealing your toilet, sinks, and faucets prevents water from constantly leaking out, which can lead to structural damage. This is crucial, but also, surveillance is required. We make sure you know where your pipes are located in the walls, in cabinets, and elsewhere so you can check for soft spots appearing on your paint or wallpaper, or on your vanity cabinets.
