One of the most important aspects of bathroom construction or renovation is waterproofing. That’s because proper waterproofing protects your property from potential damage and prevents some possible health concerns. Bathrooms are very wet environments. Showering and bathing produce a lot of water vapour, which is absorbed by porous walls and retained for long periods. Inside the walls, this moisture can erode materials and lead to cracks that let even more moisture in. Over time, this problem can worsen and lead to extensive damage. Waterproofing your shower in Melbourne is a simple way to avoid these issues. Here are some of the most important reasons you should hire professionals to waterproof your bathroom today.
Condensation inside your walls can cause the growth of mould, the discolouration of your paint, and the decay of any wood in the room. Also, excess moisture that may accumulate inside the walls facilitates heat loss, which may mean higher energy bills during winter. Vapour from your bathroom can also travel to other rooms of your house, having a negative impact on your indoor air quality and possibly leading to a severe mould problem. Professional waterproofing and regrouting is the best way to prevent these problems.
Especially if you live in an area with high humidity levels, your house or building is consistently exposed to this moisture. Humidity in the air can damage the entire structure, but most particularly areas with poor ventilation. This issue is compounded in a bathroom, where a combination of outdoor humidity, interior humidity, and high moisture content inside the walls can exacerbate water damage exponentially. It can take a long time before moisture-related damage becomes apparent, but when it does, it can be expensive and difficult to fix.
Numerous microorganisms and pests can thrive in damp areas and lead to a variety of health concerns. Waterproofing your bathroom can help you avoid these infestations. Keep in mind that mould, fungi, and pests can live in your walls long before you discover them, and it’s important to take action sooner rather than later – at the first warning signs, or even before – to prevent future problems.
Moisture in your walls can lead to structural problems such as blistering or peeling paint, rotting wood, and a severe mould infestation that may require the help of a professional. Any of these issues can cost a considerable amount of money to fix. Waterproofing your shower and bathroom keeps moisture out of the walls and saves you significantly on future repairs.
