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:

  1. Blocking the drain
  2. Fill the shower stall with about one inch of water
  3. Use a pencil to mark the waterline
  4. Leave the water standing in the shower pan for 8 hours
  5. If the water level decreases, contact a plumbing professional
