6 Signs of a Bad Bathroom

Apr 03, 2014

Being one of the most used rooms in the home, a bathroom goes through a lot of wear and tear, but there’s a difference between just needing a good cleanin’ and needing to part ways.  If you have one or more of these problems in what’s supposed to be the most relaxing room in your house, you may want to consider trading in your old bath or shower.

1. MOLD / MILDEW HAS YOUR BATHROOM BEEN TAKEN OVER BY UNWANTED HOUSE GUESTS?

problems in your bathroom

Mold/Mildew is one of the most common problems in a bathroom and can turn into a serious health hazard.

Water leakage and broken grout make mold and mildew the most common problems found in bathrooms. These causes account for unwanted moisture giving way to a moldy shower.

Can’t deal with ugly, unhealthy mold, or leaks and drainage problems any longer?

Our bath and shower systems include wall surrounds that not only are sealed with the Triple-Seal System to ensure water-tight seams, but they don’t support mold growth. Plus, cleaning is a breeze!  

2. HARD WATER STAINS FEEL LIKE ONCE YOU TACKLE ONE HARD WATER STAIN, THERE’S ANOTHER ONE TO GREET YOU THE NEXT DAY?

Everywhere the water hits your tub is susceptible to hard water stains. Depending on how hard your water is and the type of tub/shower you have, these can be very frustrating and time consuming to deal with.

Can’t catch a break with hard water stains?

Using sparshield coating, our bath and shower systems are protected from stains.  Of course, you still have to clean them regularly but that’s easy–, just use soap and water! 

3. MOLD / MILDEW FINDING THAT YOUR BATHROOM HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY UNWANTED HOUSE GUESTS?

Water leakage and broken grout make mold and mildew the most common problems found in bathrooms. These causes account for unwanted moisture giving way to a moldy shower.

Can’t deal with leaks and drainage problems any longer?

Our bath and shower systems include wall surrounds that reach the ceiling and they actually don’t support mold growth. *This doesn’t mean you can neglect your cleaning duties! 

4. DISCOLORATION/STAINS HAS YOUR BATH OR SHOWER CHANGED COLOR OVER TIME AND NOTHING BRINGS IT BACK?

Stains can make your shower or bath look dirty no matter how many times you clean it

Stains can make your shower or bath look dirty no matter how many times you clean it

Discoloration and staining can be caused by hard mineral deposits and years of using harsh cleaning solutions. Certain tub materials don’t mix well with certain cleaning materials, so it’s smart to ask your installer which ones to avoid.

Sick of looking at stains knowing there’s nothing you can do?

Our systems have a sparshield coating that prevents fading, stains and discoloring. If you get cleaner crazy and forget that your system wipes clean with just soap and water, no problem. Your installation comes with a pamphlet that has a list of cleaners NOT to use on this material.   

5. GROUT PROBLEMS CAN’T REGAIN  THE ORIGINAL COLOR OF THE GROUT BETWEEN YOUR TILES?

Grout in your showers and baths can lead to serious problems from day one

Grout problems can begin from the minute the tile is installed on your walls. If applied improperly, it will crack, making the tile eventually come loose. If you see mold or mildew on your tub or shower base, it’s safe to assume it will travel to your walls next. Space between the tiles where the grout lies is one of the easiest places for mold to settle while being one of the hardest places to get rid of it.

Done dealing with dirty grout?

Our wall surrounds are acrylic meaning there is no grout, but you still get the feel of real granite and marble, just not the expense or maintenance. No more scrubbing or worrying about missing tiles!

6CONSTANT MAINTENANCE  FEEL LIKE IT’S A NEVER-ENDING BATTLE WITH YOUR BATH OR SHOWER?

Stop exposing yourself to harsh chemicals while trying to make your tub shine

Stop exposing yourself to harsh chemicals while trying to make your tub shine

Routinely cleaning, disinfecting, maybe even replacing old tiles or painting can get tiresome. Constantly using toxic chemicals in efforts to clean your tub is dangerous to both you and your family.

Done putting your health at risk?

Our bath and shower systems are maintenance- free and the only cleaning materials you’ll need is soap and water. Just wipe clean!  Made of the thickest high-tech polymer in the business for strength and durability, you won’t need to constantly maintain anymore. 

7. COLOR SCHEME IS YOUR BATHTUB, SHOWER OR WALL SURROUNDS A COLOR OF THE RAINBOW? 

outdated bathrooms

Pink is pretty, but maybe save it for the accessories.

It’s not a crime to like a little bit of color, but nothing screams outdated like your tub being the color of an Easter egg. Show your personality through your accessories instead.

Finally ready to go down a more beautiful, fresh and neutral path?

Our tubs, showers and wall surrounds come in a variety of colors and our experts are trained to show you which ones work together, and which should never be caught in the same room. Custom manufactured for you, the opportunities are endless.
