Top tips for keeping your bathroom floor at its best

  • Keep your bathroom well ventilated when running a bath or having a shower - either open a window or use an extractor fan to help get rid of moisture in the air 

  • Ensure any water spillage is cleaned up straight away to avoid mold growth or damage to your floor

  • Use bathroom matts where you can - these are great for soaking up water when stepping out of the bath

  • Check your shower curtain or screen doesn’t let any water trickle passed unnoticed

  • It’s a good idea to occasionally check for any leaking plumbing as this can lead to big problems if gone unnoticed
