The key to waterproof and moisture-proof bathroom

  • Detail

[] generally speaking, the area of small family toilets is generally small. Once the ventilation conditions of narrow toilets are poor, it is easy to cause the moisture accumulation in the toilets, especially the furniture placed in the toilets will be affected by the moisture, which will cause deformation, mildew and other problems

◆ decoration: Waterproofing should not cut corners

waterproofing in toilets can greatly alleviate the problem of moisture return, especially in toilets with poor ventilation conditions, waterproofing should be done during decoration. Try to choose brand waterproof materials and paint them in strict accordance with the construction process. The key to dampproof is to try not to move or reduce the movement of toilet pipes. If you want to change the pipeline, the waterproof construction details should be more strict. Not only the pipeline needs to be horizontal and vertical, and the laying should be firm. The place at the root of the pipeline must be cleaned and painted 2-3 times before painting waterproof materials, especially the floor drain should be set at the lowest place of the toilet floor, so that it can be discharged by running water

after the completion of waterproof works, a 24-hour water avoidance test must be carried out to block the water outlet of the toilet. The toilet is paved with water 3-4 cm thick. After 24 hours, check whether there is leakage. If there is no leakage, it indicates that the waterproof layer can be successfully waterproof. In addition, valves, faucets and other pipe fittings should also wear waterproof coats. Exposed pipes should be painted with anti rust paint, and concealed pipes should be painted with anti-corrosion paint. The connection between water supply pipes and accessories and appliances should be tight, and there should be no leakage after water test. Ceramic sanitary ware, stainless steel and other hardware (shower head, faucet, etc.) should be regularly cared for. When decontaminating, it is best to use toothpaste and toothbrush. The friction is small but the cleaning effect is excellent. It will not destroy the protective film on the sanitary ware and effectively prevent mildew

◆ material selection: try to choose waterproof and moisture-proof boards

the moisture-proof performance of materials used in the bathroom is also very critical. The floor of the toilet had better choose ceramic tile, full-length brick, damp proof effect is better, also easier to clean. Generally, ceramic tiles are also used on the wall. If special materials such as waterproof wallpaper are needed, the ventilation conditions of the bathroom must be considered

the boards of bathroom furniture should not be sloppy. The cabinet boards of furniture should be waterproof and moisture-proof. Attention should be paid to the treatment of furniture backboard when selecting. The back board with double decorative veneers can avoid the exposure of density board substrate, and the water vapor is not easy to enter the board from the back of the cabinet, which has a good moisture-proof effect. It also needs to pay attention to whether the edge sealing of furniture is tight, and too thin edge sealing is easy to cause water vapor penetration. When placing bathroom furniture, pay attention to the distinction between dry and wet, and try to place the furniture far away from the bathroom cabinet with good ventilation conditions. If the ventilation conditions in the bathroom are poor, let the designer design a water retaining screen to plan out the dry and wet areas

◆ maintenance: do a good job in daily moisture-proof treatment

the moisture-proof treatment in the bathroom also needs to be done well in daily moisture-proof treatment, otherwise it is easy to cause indoor moisture accumulation, soaking furniture and hardware, resulting in corrosion and mildew. After washing and bathing, there will be a lot of water droplets and moisture in the bathroom. If the bathroom has windows, be sure to open the windows for ventilation, and then clean the residual water droplets on the ground with mops. The water vapor and drops on the hardware and faucet in the bathroom also need to be cleaned regularly. Especially after taking a shower, there are many water drops on the hardware, which should be cleaned with a dry cloth in time

the back of bathroom furniture is often ignored when cleaning, and it is easy to condense more condensate. Therefore, it is best to leave appropriate gaps for cleaning when placing bathroom furniture, or choose bathroom cabinets suspended in the front, back and bottom, which is very convenient to clean condensate
