If you're like most homeowners, you probably don't think much about your bathroom until there's a problem. And one of the most common problems that homeowners face is water damage.

Whether it's from a leaking faucet or a faulty toilet, water can cause some serious damage to your bathroom. In fact, according to the Insurance Information Institute, water damage has the second largest share of claims made against homeowners insurance policies.

So if you want to avoid costly repairs and protect your home, you should consider waterproofing your bathroom. In this blog post, we will discuss the top 5 reasons why you should have your bathroom waterproofed!

(1) Save yourself from future repairs by preventing structural damage

Waterproofing your bathroom will help to prevent structural damage. As we mentioned before, water damage is one of the most common problems that homeowners face.

By waterproofing your bathroom, you can help to prevent water vapor from seeping through cracks and causing damage to your home. Spots in your bathroom that are susceptible from damage caused by moisture are its corners, the joints between walls and ceilings, or, it could be, the entire area which is constantly exposed to poor ventilation and high levels of moisture and humidity.

If taken for granted, these damages could lead to more serious problems like the formation of mold and mildew, or worse, cause your bathroom walls and ceiling to collapse. So if you want to avoid costly repairs, make sure to waterproof your bathroom! It will save you time, money, and a lot of headaches in the long run.

(2) Protect your family against health concerns caused by molds and mildew

Waterproofing your bathroom will also help to prevent mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can cause serious health problems, so it's important to keep them under control.

Moisture leads to condensation. This, in effect, leads to paint peeling off from walls, staining of grout lines, wood decay, mold growth, and an unpleasant musty smell. Molds and mildew can cause respiratory problems, so it's important to keep your bathroom free of moisture.

Avoid mold forming and being festered by it through the use of waterproofing solutions. This will also help improve air quality and protect your family's health.

(3) Get rid of pests

Another reason why you should waterproof your bathroom is to get rid of pests. Cockroaches, ants, termites, and other insects are attracted to high moisture.

So if you have a moisture problem in your bathroom, chances are, you also have a pest problem. Pest infestation, especially those of termites, can be very difficult to control and can cause serious damage to your home. These pests can squeeze their bodies through surprisingly small spaces, right in your bathroom walls and floor. If worst comes to worst, you will need pest control experts to solve the problem and remodelers to reconstruct your space.

Waterproofing your bathroom will help to eliminate moisture and keep pests away. It is better to use innovative water-resistant system early on, rather than wait for a pest crisis to happen.

(4) Reduce Your Bills, Save Maintenance Costs

Waterproofing your bathroom will help to reduce your energy bills and save you maintenance costs in the long run.

By preventing water from seeping into your home, you can help to insulate your home and keep it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This will lead to lower energy bills and a more comfortable home.

Also, when you have made investments to prevent mold growth and condensation, you can avoid paint peeling off from walls, staining of grout lines, and everything that was mentioned above. You won't have to repaint your walls as often, and you can extend the life of your bathroom fixtures. Waterproofing will also make cleaning your bathroom easier and more efficient. You can save thousands of dollars in maintenance and repair costs just by waterproofing your bathroom.

(5) Increase the value of your home

Finally, waterproofing your bathroom will add value to your home. If you ever decide to sell your home, potential buyers will be impressed by a bathroom that is free from water damage.

A property without structural damages, molds, or pests gets to have a higher market value compared to one that is suffering from the effects of water damage. Waterproofing your bathroom is an investment that will pay off in the long run!
