Leaking Shower Head

People call us with a variety of problems in their showers. One of the most common of those is a leaky shower head.

Try turning your valve. Is it harder to turn than it used to be, or do you feel actual resistance when you try to turn it? This usually means that mineral deposits from hard water have built up on the moving parts of the valve. Over time, the whole mechanism can slowly freeze up, until it is unable to close far enough to fully stop the flow of water, which causes leaks.

Mold in the Shower

Mold is a fungi, so it grows best in damp, dark conditions. Plumbers find mold growing in all sorts of places, like inside cabinets where water has been leaking for a while and in laundry rooms. If your shower shows any signs of something growing in it, your bathroom is probably not drying out properly. You may need to install a bathroom fan for proper ventilation or be sure that you open the window every time you take a shower. Letting the room dry will go far towards preventing mold growth.

It can also grow when there is a leak that you can’t see. If your bathroom has proper ventilation but you are still getting recurrent mold growth, you’ll need to figure out where the leak is. Mold thrives where there is moisture and spreads by sending out spores, so it will reproduce until the source is taken care of.

Mold can be a significant health hazard, depending on the type of mold and how sensitive you and your family members are to it. If anyone who is in your home regularly suffers from unexplained eye irritation, wheezing, skin irritation, nasal stuffiness, or even severe lung problems, it is worth checking to see if you have mold.
