Eurobodalla Home Guide : 2010
14 eurobodalla home guide SUSTAINABLE LIVING Leaking showers can be a major source of aggravation for many homeowners, often causing damage to adjoining areas, odours and even attracting white ants. Australian Company, Megasealed Bathrooms, believes it has the answer with its unique, guaranteed service which effectively and permanently seals leaking showers without the need to remove tiles. Each Megasealed service comes with a 15 year product warranty and Megasealed are nationally ISO accredited having been estab- lished for 15 years. Megasealed Bathrooms is Australia's No.1 Leaking Shower specialist and are servicing and repairing 2,500 showers a month throughout Australia. R COGNSNGA A KNGSHOW R Recognising a leaking shower can quickly save time and money in repairs later. Some of the major warning signs are: Carpet is wet or smelly Paint bubbling on walls Visible gaps in floor & wall joints Floor or wall grout missing Dirty, black or mouldy silicone Discoloured tiles or grout in or around shower Swollen timber door frame or architraves Jamming bathroom door Buckling floors Damp or water marks on ceiling below bathroom Deterioration of silicone around the shower screen Remember bathrooms are not the only wet areas in a home. Laundries, kitchens, bal- conies can all fall victim to leaks and should also be checked regularly. Megasealed have solutions for these areas as well. The severity of the damage a leaking show- er can cause to a bathroom and adjoining rooms should not be underestimated. A leak can be blocked so that it may not be notice- able to the untrained eye. This does not mean it is fixed. Until the source of the leak is prop- erly addressed damage under the tiles, to plaster, woodwork and flooring remains highly likely. Despite the vast numbers of leaking show- ers in homes and units, for many years own- ers had little choice but to resort to temporary "stop-gap" measures, such as sealants, or costly time-consuming work. HMGASADSOUON Megasealed Bathrooms specialise in identi- fying and promptly fixing leaking showers. They provide a FREE Water detection service and an obligation FREE quote provided by their professional sales consultants. When the service is carried out, tiles will not have to be removed and after the 2 ½ to 3 hour service the shower will be ready to use again the next day. Owner and Managing Director, Jacques Courtin, says "although there is a range of reasons for leaking showers (including poor quality grouting) the most common problems occur between the floor and wall joins of the shower recess. In fact most showers built onto a stud wall will eventually leak as a result or minimal (normal) building movement. The grout cannot resist the movement and water escapes through the grout -- generally through the wall and floor joins." Property owners have been very pleased to discover that there is a long-lasting solution for leaking showers at a price they can afford. Megasealed is a secure company with a product and service that has been proven to be successful and is supported by their writ- ten 15 year guarantee which is important to all customers.
