How to waterproof the bathroom - bathroom, waterproof
Which waterproof coating is more suitable for bathroom waterproofing? This is also a problem we will encounter in the process of home improvement. Under normal circumstances, there are three places where leakage occurs in the bathroom, which needs our attention: floor drain, wall corner, and pipe root. Due to the large number of interfaces, these three places are prone to gaps, so water leakage is prone to occur. Therefore, it is also very important to choose a coating that is more suitable for waterproofing in the bathroom. Let's have a little talk below. For the waterproof coating, we should choose a one-component environmentally friendly polyurethane coating, which is currently the waterproof material highly recommended by the Ministry of Construction. It is understood that some domestic brand polyurethane paint manufacturers have their own construction teams, and citizens can ask the manufacturers to provide professionals when purchasing paints. Polyurethane paint can tightly wrap the pipeline and the ground, penetrate into the gap, and will not shrink after drying, so it is more suitable for small-area houses with many pipelines and gaps in the bathroom than rigid materials such as waterproof cement. In order to make the waterproof period longer in the future, the paint generally needs to be brushed 3 times. In order to let the paint fully dry, it is not possible to choose to do it in rainy or humid climates. Generally, the dry-through period of one-component environmentally friendly polyurethane coatings is about 3 to 4 days. The walls should also be waterproofed. In order to achieve a better waterproof effect, the wall of the general bathroom should also be waterproofed at a height of about 30cm to prevent water from penetrating the wall. The height of the waterproof treatment on the wall adjacent to the bathtub is also higher than the upper edge of the bathtub. This will ensure that nothing goes wrong. After the waterproof construction is completed, all the sewers in the bathroom should be blocked, and a low wall should be built at the entrance of the bathroom for the water injection test, and the water injection height should be about 20cm. Check after 24 hours. If there is no leakage on the surrounding walls and ground of the bathroom, the waterproof quality of the bathroom is very good. On the contrary, it is necessary to find out the leak and repair it.
