Mold? Moisture? Drafts? Poor or no insulation? Don’t just cover up your shower walls! What’s behind the walls of your bathroom is important to your family’s health, comfort, safety, and even your energy costs. Hiding behind many bathroom walls in America are moldy, poorly insulated, poorly sealed, cold, drafty open, void spaces (fire hazard). These are just a few of the issues that can arise from leaving this issue untended:
- Left alone or worse, covered up (as some bathroom repair companies do all the time), the mold will continue to grow affecting your family’s health and allowing your bathroom to rot from the inside out, hosting a moist, inviting environment for insects and rodents to thrive behind the walls in your home.
- Lack of air sealing and poor insulation makes your home less comfortable and increases your homes heating and cooling bills.
- Lack of fire blocking behind walls, floors and ceilings allows for smoke and fire to travel through your home more quickly, giving your family less time to escape in a fire.
When these spaces are properly treated for mold, air sealed, insulated and fire blocked the bathroom becomes a more healthy, comfortable, safer environment for you and your family to enjoy.
