Leaking Showers Carlton
Leaking showers are a very common problem and many people fail to react to it quickly enough. Such leaks can cause extensive damage to the adjacent elements and features, and can ruin the finish and design of the adjoining rooms. You’ll end up spending large amounts of money on repairs and painting even after you get the leaking shower problem fixed. You can control the extent of the damage and minimise it if you call us at Water Leak King soon after you see the signs.
What are the Causes of Leaking Showers Carlton?
Leaks can be caused due to a number of reasons, which is why it’s important to determine the root cause before performing any repairs. We’ve determined that the points mentioned below are the most common culprits of bathroom leakage.
Leaks from the Shower Tray – It’s rare for water to leak from a shower tray unless it’s cracked or compromised in any way. This is because shower trays are specifically designed to contain water and ensure nothing escapes. While the water might seem to come from the shower tray, the source of the leak can be elsewhere. Our technicians will carefully examine the entire area and trace the path of the water to its origin.
Leaks due to Poor Silicone Sealant Joints – This is perhaps the most common source of leaking showers Carlton. The sealed joints between the shower tray and walls ensure moisture doesn’t get between the joint and under the tray or wall. If there’s a gap in the seal, you’ll see significant water damage. This gap will be formed if the sealant material is poor or if the shower tray has settled.
Degradation of Silicone Sealant in the Grout – Grout is made of water, sand, and cement so it’s porous; sealant is applied over the grout to waterproof it. Moisture can easily sink into the material and cause problems like water damage and mould. A sealant forms a tight seal on the surface and keeps the water away. If the sealant has worn off, you’ll experience water damage, mould, and leaking showers Carlton.
Deterioration in the Grout – Even if the sealant is intact, deteriorated grout can cause leaks. If there are visible cracks on the grout surface or if some sections of it have fallen off, moisture can sink into the exposed areas and cause problems. If it’s not addressed in time, this can lead to widespread water damage
