- How can I avoid water damage?

If you have discovered something amiss, water may have seeped in behind the tiles and caused damage to the wall. If any caulking is in disrepair, fix it or replace it. You don’t want water to seep through. The general rule of thumb is to try your best to keep the bathroom dry so that water can’t travel where it doesn’t belong. Wipe the floors dry and use the bathroom’s exhaust fan after use. Make sure the faucets in the bathroom aren’t leaking and deal with any abnormalities with the toilet. If you hear the toilet tank running for no reason, there is probably a leak to be repaired. A call to Archie & Son Ltd. Plumbing is certainly in order when you suspect a leak so that you can avoid future water damage.
