If water fixtures in your home are not properly installed, there are a number of problems that can occur. For many of us, we move into homes and apartments already fully laid out and perhaps the poorly handled installation of macerating toilets or double bowl kitchen sinks are not our fault. Still, the results are all very much the same and fall at our feet.
In many cases, if these items are installed loosely, moisture can begin to build up around the edges of, for example, the countertop that surrounds the kitchen sink. Over time, without near constant cleaning, those countertops can begin to build up mold. This is not simply a cosmetic problem. Mold around your toilets, sinks or tubs can spread quickly. It can seep underneath tiling or into other fixtures around the home. As it spreads, it creates unhealthy air to breathe.
Exposure to mold can lead to rashes, headaches and troubling respiratory problems. It is the type of problem that if left unattended, will inevitably get far worse. If you are installing new sinks or toilets, make sure you do so by the book to assure the continued safety of yourself and your family.
