Your bathtub is one of the most important plumbing fixtures in your home. It is used frequently in homes as a place to clean off and have time to relax and think after a long day of being on the move. Considering that your bathtub is such an essential component of your home, it’s important to know the signs indicating it’s time for a replacement. Listed below are four common signs that it’s time for a bathtub replacement.
If your bathtub is constantly leaking, it is a major sign that it’s time to replace it. Leaking tubs shouldn’t be left untreated. Water leakage from your bathtub can spread throughout your bathroom and home, causing significant water damage and repairs.
There can be many problems linked to a cracking tub. A cracked bathtub can be an eyesore and cause unsafe and uncomfortable bathing experiences. If you notice cracks in your bathtub, there’s a possibility of repairing it. However, it can spread when left untreated, causing water to leak from your tub, resulting in a bathtub replacement.
Mold & Mildew
An accumulation of mold and mildew in your tub can be disgusting to look at and is a health risk to you and your home’s occupants. When you begin to notice mold and mildew growing in or around your tub, you should take action immediately with the proper cleaner. However, if the problem continues, you should replace your tub quickly.
Stains in your bathtub can be unappealing. Some stains and blemishes can be removed by simply cleaning your tub. However, if stains won’t come out or you find yourself constantly cleaning your tub, it may be time for a new tub that only requires occasional cleaning.
As we grow older and our bodies change, sometimes climbing in and out of our bathtubs can become increasingly difficult. It’s probably time to consider replacing your current bathtub with one that accommodates your needs to prevent injury and make your bathtub more accessible. For instance, walk-in bathtubs make it easier for individuals to access their tubs without strain or difficulty.
