Signs That Your Shower or Bath Is Causing Water Damage in Your Bathroom


If there’s one room in the home that you might expect to be the root of water damage in your property, it would be the bathroom. A leaky tap or ill-fitted appliance here can easily cause damage to your house. Here, we provide you with a few signs that your bath or shower is causing water damage in your bathroom.

Is My Shower or Bath Causing Water Damage?

Soft Flooring or Rotting Skirting

If your floors have been constructed using wood, then the presence of water will slowly rot away the support and make it feel spongy and soft. This needs to be addressed as soon as possible or you could soon be dealing with the complete collapse of your floor. As well as soft flooring, if wooden skirting boards are beginning to rot – especially around your bath or shower – this is a sure-fire sign that you’re dealing with water damage.

Ceiling Stains Directly Underneath The Bathroom

Watermarks and stains on the ceiling are a sure-fire sign that you are likely dealing with water damage. If those marks are appearing directly under your bathroom – particularly underneath the area where your shower or bath is positioned – then you’ll need to have this looked into straight away.

A Musty Smell

Following your nose is always a good tactic when looking to locate areas of water damage or mould. If you notice a musty smell in your bathroom, investigate further to find out where the smell is coming from. If this leads you to an area that looks mouldy, rotting or damp, this is likely caused by water damage.
