Bathroom vanities are beautiful and functional additions to any restroom. Naturally, by being in a bathroom, these vanities will be exposed to water constantly, and the risk for water damage rises. Therefore, it’s important to do whatever you can to protect your vanity against whatever water damage could happen. Here are ways to keep your bathroom vanity safe against water damage.
Monitor Your Pipes
If you aren’t regularly checking on your pipes, it’s very easy for water damage to escalate quickly. That’s why you should stay vigilant, and watch for any problems your pipes could be facing, especially leaks. If you notice any leak in your pipes, contact a plumber as soon as possible so that the water that would otherwise leak out can’t do any harm to your bathroom vanity.
Lower the Humidity Levels in Your Bathroom
Humidity is moisture in the air, but it’s still moisture. Therefore, it can still bring water damage to your bathroom vanity. By lowering your bathroom’s humidity levels, you reduce how much moisture is in the air. This not only reduces the likelihood of water damage, but it also minimizes the chances of mildew and mold growing in your bathroom. A dehumidifier can be a great investment for this reason.
Use Varnish or Paint to Add a Layer of Protection to Your Bathroom Vanity
Sometimes, to prevent water damage, it can be best to simply reinforce the surface of your bathroom vanity directly. By using paint or varnish, you can add waterproof properties to your bathroom vanity. There are seams and cracks in pretty much any vanity you could install, and these seams and cracks serve as entry points for water. However, if you add a sealant to your bathroom vanity, you prevent water from getting to your vanity in this manner.
