Winter is fast approaching, which means it’s time to break out the warm coats and get ready for a few months of rain, snow, and cold. In addition to changing your wardrobe, preparing your home – especially your bathroom – is another essential part of preparing for the year’s coldest season. Read on to learn some of the bathroom winterizing tips our shower and bathroom stall installation experts use to fend off the harsh weather.
Chances are everyone reading this article has a preference when it comes to showers vs. baths. We all have our preferred method of bathing and switching to another can feel strange and off-putting. Which method is actually better for you? Or your monthly bills? Or for the environment? We take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of both baths and showers below.
Showering is an essential part of a person’s daily routine, so much so that most of us take it for granted. We all know how hot we like the water to be and how long we like to take, and we don’t spend much time considering whether or not we should be doing it any other way.
We can all do more to save water. Even if you don’t live in one of the drought-afflicted states like California that are currently worrying about whether they’ll have any water at all in the next few years, water conservation is something that all of us should be concerned about, not just because it’s good for the environment, but also because it lowers our monthly water bills, giving us more money to spend on other things.
One of the biggest dangers for the elderly and disabled while taking a shower is that of scalding water. When people aren’t in full control of their faculties or their bodies, it becomes easy for them not to realize that they are using water that is too hot to be safe, until it’s too late, leading to burns and other painful conditions.
