Salt Lake City, UT -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/04/2023 -- When a home's bathtub is showing troubling issues or warning signs, it's important for homeowners to not neglect any of their tub repair needs.

There are all sorts of potential tub repairs that my wreak havoc on a bathroom, and below are some crucial warning signs that homeowners need to take very seriously!

Tub Leaks
When it comes to bathtub dangers, it doesn't get more serious than tub leaks. This is because leaks can quickly create foundational and structural damages throughout a bathroom's flooring, which can also lead to disastrous scenarios like mold development.

One of the most common tub leak red flags is when there are puddles around a bathtub on the bathroom floor, but the good news is that there are many ways for plumbers to pinpoint bathtub leaks and make efficient repairs.

Tub Cracking & Chipping
When a bathtub is cracking or chipping away, it can pose significant issues if it's not addressed properly. Even small tub chips need to be patched up as quickly as possible, because these deformities can lead to moisture seeping through and making the tub prone to other issues like leaks and rusting.

So, whenever tub cracking or chipping is noticeable, it's time for a professional tub repair.

Mildew & Mold Development
Mildew and mold development is always a really serious tub repair issue, because it can potentially pose all sorts of respiratory and health issues when neglected. Mold can also lead to structural damages throughout a bathroom as well.

This is the type of tub repair that needs to be addressed as soon as possible, and although some DIY cleaning methods can help, it's likely that professional support will be needed to fully remediate the mold.

Tub Staining
Tub staining is a common issue that's closely associated with hard water, which means that soap scum buildup is often the cause of the staining.

Over long periods of time, a tub's protective finish can start to wear down, which will makes grime and dirt much more difficult to remove. When this type of scenario occurs, it'll likely require an extensive repair or tub replacement to get the tub back to a normal appearance.

Tub Material Warping

When bathtubs get older, they become increasingly more prone to issues like abnormal flexing and warping. This can make the tub less comfortable for everyday bathing.

Although there are many options available to homeowners in this situation, this type of warning sign clearly indicates a need for a professional tub repair.

Faded Colors

When a tub's colors have started to fade, it could mean that it's time for a new one altogether; however, there are some situations in which a professional repair can get the tub's aesthetics back to normal again.
