There is nothing that wakes you up better in the morning like a nice, hot shower. Showering is part of our daily routine and sometimes, we tend to take having a functioning shower for granted. If your shower is not working like it should, or even if you suspect that you have a problem, it is a good idea to have all shower repair services done by a licensed plumber. There are many reasons why shower repair is a good idea, and here is a list of the most common things to look for:
- It is so frustrating to turn on the shower and have only a small trickle of water come out of the shower head. If you have your shower turned on full blast and there is not a steady stream of water coming out, you have low water pressure. Low water pressure could be just as simple as a clogged shower head, or it could mean bigger problems, like clogged or broken pipes. Low water pressure could also indicate your water heater has problems.
- If your shower head constantly drips, this could also be a problem. A dripping faucet is usually an easy fix, so most people overlook it because they do not know that it can cause problems in the future. A dripping shower head can permanently damage the plumbing in your bathroom. It is important to have it fixed by a professional, so you can avoid expensive repairs in the future. Dripping water also wastes water and will end up costing you a lot of extra money every month.
- Mold and mildew around the bottom of the shower can indicate that you have a leak in your shower somewhere, most likely the shower pan. A leak in your shower pan can create significant issues, including mold damage. Most of the time, most of the mold damage is under the shower and in the walls where you can’t see it. The water and mold can damage your studs and weaken the floor. If you have excessive mold problems in your bathroom, you should have your shower looked at as soon as possible.
