Remember, being happy in the space you live in can go a long way toward improving your mood and general happiness.

Over time, it’s normal for some leaks and other damages to appear in your bathroom. It’s important to tackle these problems individually – and fix them quickly. Leaving them to pile up will only compound the issue at hand. Eventually, fixing them as they appear can become too overwhelming – at some point, it would be easier to renovate.
Besides potential damage which can be caused by leaky faucets and showerheads or running toilets, these issues also add up on your water bill. If your bathroom has had many issues with leaks in the past, this is a clear bathroom renovation warning sign. Once your bathroom renovation is complete, you’ll end up saving money as Hammerdown replaces fixtures with low-water-consumption versions.
Bathroom renovation warning signs – other visible damage
Does mold greet you every time you enter your bathroom? Is the tile cracked, the bathtub damaged, or is there an unpleasant smell? Is Winnipeg’s hard water permanently staining your sink, bathtub, shower floor or toilet?
Because of the high humidity and tap water, most average bathroom surfaces tend to suffer some degree of damage. Once a surface is damaged it becomes more difficult to clean. This can lead to more germs making your bathroom their home. Ignoring these problems can ultimately affect your health and well-being in a negative way.
