3 Common Problems that Can Plague Bathrooms in Old Apartments and Condos

Last updated 2 years ago

Even if you take good care of your bathroom and keep it clean, you can still run into problems, especially in an old apartment or condo. The choice is whether to move, live with the problems, or undergo a bathroom renovation. Here are some of the common issues you may experience:

  1. A Slow Drain
    This is an all-too-common issue. Drainage problems are a pain to the owner, because stagnant water can affect the quality of the bathroom's overall interior. A slow drain is caused by clogging, so calling for a plumber to fix the job is the first course of action. Preventative care is also helpful, so take care of your pipes as best you can, and avoid putting foreign objects down the drain.
  2. A Sputtering Showerhead
    A sputtering showerhead is usually caused by an interior clog of lime and calcium. As a result of the blocked pores, there is no water distribution control, and water ends up spewing all over the bathroom. Beware of this issue, because it can cause harm to the rest of the bathroom, such as water damage to the walls and flooring.
  3. Mold
    Your bathroom flooring and wall tiles are constantly exposed to water. Using your shower or bathtub every day can cause moisture to form in small cracks, creating a breeding ground for mold and other harmful bacteria. Tile deterioration is a sign that you need to consider upgrading your wall and flooring.
