Bathroom Remodeling | 4 Major Signs You Need a New Bathtub

Bathroom Remodeling | Old bathtubs can get, well—gross. Luckily it’s pretty easy to know when you should start looking into a new bathtub. Here are some tell-tale signs that your bathtub might be facing its final hours:

1.  Leaks: If you start to notice a small puddle of water forming near your bathtub every time you fill it, you’ve most likely sprung a leak. This is due to either a small crack in the basin of your tub or a leak in your pipes. Unfortunately, leaks aren’t really an easy fix. They’re definitely good indicators of an old tub that needs to be replaced.

2.  Mold and Mildew: Leaks are notorious for causing mold and mildew in the bathroom. Mold generally means that water is running where it shouldn’t be. To keep your bathroom as clean and safe as you want it to be, it’s best to replace moldy bathtubs and repair any leaks present.

3.  Stains: Besides the fact that stains look awful, they also indicate a lot of bacteria in your tub. If scrubbing doesn’t seem to be able to get rid of that ring around the tub, it’s time for a new one. You want to keep your bathroom clean and attractive, so it’s best to either get rid of the stains or get a tub replacement.

4.  Wear-and-tear: Erosions and faulty faucets are definitely bad signs. These are generally indicative of an old bathtub, so you’ll want to get rid of these as soon as they start. Replacing a faulty old tub will provide for a safer and cleaner bathroom environment.

It’s important to upgrade your tub once you start noticing one or more of these problems. Mold and other bacteria can build up and create an environment that’s actually unsafe for you to be in. Consider a tub replacement to amplify the look of your bathroom—as well as its safety and longevity. – Tiger Bath
