The Health Disadvantages of Leaking Showers
Not only do leaking showers drive you mad, as it takes a lot of effort to clean all that mould and dirt that can be caused by a leaking wet area. A constant leak can do damage to your property as white ants love the combination of timber and moisture. Not to mention your personal health, as the presentation of mould in your house can cause all sorts of health problems. Mould associated with damp buildings can trigger nasal congestion, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, respiratory infections and worsen asthma and allergic conditions.
The way to control indoor mould growth is to control the source of moisture. Establish where the moisture is coming from. Is it a plumbing problem, or is water getting through the tiles and grout? Preventing and fixing a leaking shower are important to not only protecting your investment and therefore your wallet, more importantly to protect your family’s health.
