Baths are something that every house out there owns. Whether it is to serve a relaxed bathing experience or to keep the bathroom clean from water spills and sprinkles, it is something that is known to be a significant part of a lot of bathrooms. Baths come in various shapes and sizes while also differing in material such as acrylic, ceramic, stone, etc.
Even though some look at it from a luxurious perspective, it is still a necessity and is used every single day. Now with regular use, everything tends to lose out on its longevity, and the same goes for your baths as well. Any distortions or problems faced by the freestanding bath wouldn’t surface one fine day, and with each passing day, things take a sudden turn. The baths too give out those signs that need your attention. Here are a few times when you would want to become aware of getting the bath replaced.
The level of functionality that the bath shows
No bath is there to serve an ornamental purpose and unless it provides you with a perfect bathing experience, there is no use for it. Whenever you step into the tub, do you notice water puddles or does the water drain off when you clog the drain on purpose? Well, these are signs of a leak in the bath which may not be visible to you. Such leaks may not look prominent but what goes unnoticed is the accumulation of moisture underneath and how this can lead to mould growth or probably dampening of the floor under it. This is when the bath needs to be replaced at the soonest.
Does it clean correctly?
When it comes to cleaning bathtubs, keeping aside a day of the week especially when there are a lot of people using it is something that is essential. Soap sprinkles, water spots, etc. are known to create a stain on the surface, and when not cleaned regularly, it tends to look dirty. Even when you clean the bath regularly using the best of cleaning agents, and you see the water stains are still there no matter how much you scrub, it needs replacement as it wouldn’t get back to its original form. When a bath starts losing out on its longevity, it tends to retain stains, and that is a sign that it may not be able to serve you for long.
Does everyone at home find it relaxing?
Now you may have kids at home, or probably the elderly living along with you and all of them have no other option other than using it for bathing and cleansing themselves. You are to take heed of the fact whether every one of them is comfortable using it. Climbing in and out or probably the sitting space which may be too small or enclosed. If there is someone who is uncomfortable, try changing it with something that fits all needs especially when everyone has the right to enjoy a relaxing bath.
