Shower Pan Damage in Murrieta?
Damaged Shower Situation in Murrieta Home?
In a study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS), more than half of the shower stall water damage incidents involved a faulty shower pan. Routine inspection of your home’s plumbing systems can often identify plumbing problems before they become a bigger and more costly issue. SERVPRO® of Murrieta has been restoring water damage in Murrieta homes for years. According to this study, homes that were more than twenty years old were thirty-seven percent more likely to have water damage involving a shower. Here are some shower loss prevention and maintenance tips from the IBHS:
Inspect tile and grout every six months, paying attention to loose or cracked tiles or cracked and crumbling grout lines. Repair as needed.
Test the shower pan annually by:
- Blocking the drain
- Fill the shower stall with about one inch of water
- Use a pencil to mark the waterline
- Leave the water standing in the shower pan for 8 hours
- If the water level decreases, contact a plumbing professional
