Shower Pan Failure in Oxbow?
Shower pan maintenance tips.
A recent study published by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS), noted that homes that were over twenty years old were 37 percent more likely to have water damage involving a shower, and more than half of the shower stall water damage incidents involved a faulty shower pan. SERVPRO® of Fargo has been responding to water damage emergencies for years in the Fargo area, and we know that the sooner water damage is mitigated, the lower the repair bill can be. Here are some loss prevention and maintenance tips from the IBHS to keep your shower in good condition:
Inspect the tile and grout every six months, paying close attention to loose or cracked tiles and cracked or crumbling grout lines, and test the shower pan annually, by:
· Block the floor drain
· Fill the shower stall with about one inch of water
· Use a pencil to mark the waterline
· Leave the water standing in the shower pan for eight hours
· If the water level decreases, contact a plumbing professional
