Tips and Tricks for Waterproofing in Bathrooms and The Application of Waterproof Coatings
Water leakage in the bathroom is a very troublesome thing. As we use water in the bathroom every day, the floor, as well as the walls, are often wet, especially the walls. Some homeowners want to save on renovation costs, so they choose walls that are not waterproofed. They think that tiles and cement will be waterproof, which makes it easy for water seepage to form. Next, I’ll give you an overview of what to look for in waterproofing bathrooms and the application of waterproof paint. I hope you can all do a good job of waterproofing your bathroom.
One: Notes For Waterproofing Construction In The Bathroom
1: Check The Site Of Waterproofing Construction
Check and determine the details of waterproofing construction in the bathroom. For example, check the wall material in the bathroom, and whether the floor is empty and bulging. Check the corners and shaded corners, electrical wiring, over-the-wall holes, construction pipe slots, floor drain openings, drainage pipe openings and other locations.
2: Repair Incomplete Locations
Clean up details and remove void layers. Remove impact brick projections (small localized areas) and repair incomplete walls (small localized areas can be repaired). Chisel pipe holes.
3: Treat The Door Along The Wall. Waterproof along the wall on-site according to available materials. The height meets the water conditions (bathroom floor covered with full water) and does not affect the door stone pavement.
4: Good Plumbing And Electrical Works
Bathroom plumbing wires go above than go below. We must not think of greed and save energy to let the bathroom plumbing go on the ground, or even in the bathroom to open the floor groove, and cut round holes. It is dangerous to do so.
5: Inspection After Completion
Finally, perform an overall check on the construction of the waterproof layer to ensure that nothing is missed in the construction process.
6: Cleaning The Bathroom
Do not spill cleaning water in the room to avoid leaks entering the room downstairs.
7: When Doing A Closed Water Test, Fill The Bathroom With 3cm Or More Of Water. After 24 hours, make observations to see if there are any water leaks downstairs. If there is, find out where the leak is to be repaired; if not, it means that the waterproof is good.
Two: How To Paint The Bathroom Waterproof Coating?
1: The First And Second Painting
When painting the wall for the first time in the bathroom, it should be painted vertically up and down. When it comes to painting the second coat of waterproofing paint, paint the wall in a horizontal manner. It is important to note during this period: the second coat of waterproofing paint needs to be applied at regular intervals. You need to wait for the first waterproofing paint to dry before the second, so that it will not affect the effect of the first coat of waterproofing paint.
2: Height Of Waterproof Paint
It is recommended to paint the bathroom walls with a height of one meter eight, or directly to the ceiling.
