Is Water Damaging the Tile in Your Somerville Home?
How Tile Becomes Affected by Water Damage in Somerville Homes
Bathrooms of your Somerville home are an ideal place to expect water loss incidents to originate. With so many fixtures, it only takes irregular pressure in the pipes or weakening joints to develop a severe water damage situation. Many homes boast ceramic tiles for flooring in their bathrooms. Ceramic tile flooring is nearly impenetrable to even standing water, making them an ideal choice for installation in moisture-prone areas of the property.
Even with the seemingly impregnable composition of the ceramic tiles, it is still critical to start water removal in Somerville homes as promptly as possible. Grout and subflooring materials can wick moisture from standing water and allow for penetration underneath the tiles. This saturation of subflooring and grout still does not often damage or compromise the tiles themselves. However, it can create an issue with your flooring where these components lay unevenly, or tiles can get unseated.
Substantial water loss situations that result in the flooding of a particular room can be devastating for not only the flooring but also installed elements like the vanity and shelving.
