3 Tips to Save On Shower Repairs

Shower repairs in Perth can be expensive. It tends to break the bank if you are not careful. However, you can’t keep putting off your shower repairs because this can cause some irreparable damage in the future. While it can be tempting to do a DIY on fixing your bathroom, the chances of you making a mistake are very high — unless you’re a plumber, of course. So before you make a mess of yourself and the entire shower, leave it to the professional. Instead, concentrate on keeping your bathroom at tip-top shape. You’d be surprised what a simple cleaning method can do to help you save a few bucks on shower repairs. Here are a few things you can start with today.

1. Turn On Your Ventilation
A damp bathroom is a utopia for moulds. It has everything they need to grow and spread over time. According to Healthy WA, moulds love excess moisture. So whenever you take that shower without your ventilation on, you’re creating the perfect atmosphere for fungi to inhabit. While this is fine and dandy in the beginning, moulds are difficult to remove if they are not dealt with right away. You could end up having to call a specialist if you’re not careful. The most effective method is to prevent them from popping up in the first place. All you have to do is turn your ventilation on when showering and leave it running for 20 to 30 minutes more or until your bathroom is completely dry. See, it’s not that hard.

2. Hold Off On The Chemicals
Say you didn’t take the first advice and you ended up with more moulds than you can initially handle. Using chemicals to remove them can cause degradation and damage to your drains that can’t be easily fixed even by a professional. Instead, opt for the natural method. Better Homes and Gardens suggested giving all your bathroom surfaces a good scrubbing with a mixture of four parts vinegar and one part water. This method should remove the mould over time with regular upkeep. On top of that, you won’t be killing the good bacteria in your drainage that keeps your sewage treatment plant healthy. It’s environmentally-safe too!

3. Just Call The Plumber
When all else fails, you have no choice, but to accept the inevitable. Sometimes, calling the professional for help in fixing the shower can save you more in the long run instead of trying to fix the damage yourself. When you don’t know what you’re doing, then you don’t know what you’re doing wrong. Calling a plumber for the necessary bathroom repairs can be less costly than starting up an expensive mess that wasn’t even there at the start. Don’t let this simple problem blow up just because you want to save a few measly dollars. Just like a car and its engine, having a plumber to get your shower sorted right away is better than waiting for your entire bathroom to clog up and overflow everywhere in your home.
