Protecting Your Bathroom

The bathroom may not be a room in which the average person spends a lot of time, but it will always be one of the busiest rooms in the home. Of course, there are obvious reasons for this, but there are other less well-known reasons. People use the bathroom to take care of many different hygienic purposes. Almost everything in the room is designed to dispose of bodily wastes or get a person clean. The shower, a device in the latter category, makes the water closet a wet room. Rooms that experience excessive moisture need to use different construction techniques than other rooms in the house.

Protecting the Bathroom From the Shower

Everyone uses a shower and/or bath, it's part of nearly everyones daily routine, either when they wake up or before they go to bed of a night. Even though everyone knows what a shower is and everyone uses a shower or bath, not everyone is aware of the damage a shower could cause to a bathroom if there isn't the right type of process equipment to process and deal with the high amounts of steam and condensation left over after someone has finished with the shower.

The biggest concern of not dealing with steam and condestion properly is the possible mold and damp damaged that could be caused. This problem can effect the walls and cause some structural damage the building itself if it is not treated properly

Why Aren't Shower Curtains Always Effective

The problem with shower curtains does not lie with the product, but with the user. People often get in and out of this part of a house. When someone goes into or out of a shower, they pull the curtain. They may not pull it all the way shut, or they may put the curtain on the outside. Both to these circumstances lead to water accumulating on the floor. When water accumulates on the floor, it may destroy the wood that lies below. When the wood of the floor gets damaged, this leads to an extremel expensive repair.

How to Better Prevent The Rotting Floors

If someone wants to ensure that the doors to the shower are opened and closed as the owner of the house would like, shower screens offer one solution. Like the curtain, they are water tight. Water rolls down the panel and into the drain. It has little chance of getting onto the floor, unless someone keeps the door partially open. Other options are to use a flooring specialist to install a resin floor for you. A wise home owner may have the shower designed so that the shower will not operate until the door is fully closed, but some people may see this as to far.

Are There Other Benefits?

Saving the bathroom floor is an important part of any home, but there are other benefits to wet room shower screens as well. The most important from the home keeper's perspective is that they are easier to clean. They are also less likely to get moldy than their plastic counterparts. Although mold is not common on most shower curtains, it is possible. Anyone who has ever attempted to clean a shower also knows how dirt can build up on the the bottom. This can make the curtain look gross if it is not treated over time. The screens designed to be put in a wet room skip this particular design feature. In fact, it may make cleaning the shower less likely to be used as a punishment.
