Upgrading a bathroom is one of the more popular home improvement projects. Handling the plumbing for draining your shower can be exceedingly simple unless you go overboard.
You must also clean all items and surfaces that were touched by the sewage, including children’s toys, by using use one cup of unscented household bleach to every five gallons of water. Throw away items that cannot be washed and cleaned (such as mattresses, stuffed animals, baby toys, and wood cutting boards) and food that may have come in contact with sewage water.
Deodorize a room. Simply place used coffee grounds that have been dried on a cookie sheet in an oven, in a shallow dish and place out of sight. Soon the unpleasant odors in the room will disappear to be replaced by a mild, soothing smell of coffee. Very effective!
One very preventable plumbing issue every year is the stopped up drain to a sink, shower or bath. This is an especially frequent occurrence during the holidays when more people are using the sinks in the bathroom and kitchen. Most often these stopped-up sink issues can be prevented by getting a drain cover to catch any unwanted objects from going down the drain. There are plenty of products on the market that cover drains. Metal mesh drain covers work best for the kitchen. Plastic guards work well to catch hair in the Kesmet Wet room drain system.
My first stop in my search was the Denver Yellow Pages. Since I lived in Highlands Ranch in another county that didn’t work too well. I couldn’t find a Yellows Pages for the local area. The metro Denver Yellow Pages sure didn’t give me a quick way to know the locations or which areas the plumbing contractor might do service calls. No help on who was reasonably priced or did quality work either.
One myth that is prevalent on the internet is suggesting that you can stimulate and help your hair grow by brushing it 100 times per day. This is false. It might actually cause your hair harm.
As you probably know, there are other tricks to building a shower pan, including the special mortar that’s used. It’s called deck mud and it’s made a certain way. There’s also the special way the floor is sloped. There’s a reason for a slope, which you probably could guess. But, can you guess why many tile setters don’t use a sloped floor? It’s weird…
A floor drain needs to have a strainer over it that is secured in order to prevent injuries and dirt and trash from falling into it. The drain should be cleaned periodically and even routed out to keep the pipes clean. If there is ever a real need to use the drain, the pipes need to be free from debris so that is will drain quickly and efficiently. If may be against the law not to have the drains in public areas. Check with the fire marshal if you are unsure. You may need to upgrade if you are not in compliance.
