Most of us think of our home as a refuge, a place we can escape the cares and demands of the outside world and relax in safety and comfort. But did you know that more people are accidentally injured at home than away from home?
With hot stove burners, sharp knives, caustic cleaning products and electrical appliances you might think the kitchen is where most home accidents happen, but in fact spending time in the bathroom may be much riskier. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year about 235,000 people over age 15 visit emergency rooms because of injuries suffered in the bathroom. Almost 14% of those patients are hospitalized and more than a third of the injuries occur while bathing or showering. For this reason, if you reside in Mississauga or the surrounding area choose walk-in tubs to avoid such mishaps.
Walk-in tubs and showers provide the ideal safety solution for seniors, disabled and handicapped persons, or anyone else with mobility problems. Caledon Tile, Bath & Kitchen Centre offers sales and expert installation of low-entry step and walk-in tubs in Brampton from trusted and time-tested manufacturers so that you or a loved one can remain in the home you love for a longer period of time. Walk-in tubs offer independence, safety and convenience. As one of the largest distributors of walk-in tubs in the country, we can fit you with a tub that perfectly meets your needs.
Once you have made your investment and bought a walk-in bathtub, you would want to ensure that it is in working condition for many years to come. The longevity and durability of your walk-in tub will depend on its maintenance. You can refer to some of our expert tips:
It is always refreshing and relaxing to take a bath after a bad day or your busy work schedule. However, this therapeutic session can be interrupted when it is time to replace or repair your walk-in tub.
Our experienced team of technicians have curated a list of signs that it is time for a walk-in bathtub change:
This is the #1 sign. Keep an eye for water pooling outside your tub or dropping water levels while using a drain plug.
If you spot any crack on the interior or exterior of the tub, you should call for professional help. Untreated cracks can lead to leaks and an unpleasant bathing experience.
If you can still find stains in your tub even after maintaining a proper cleaning routine, it may be time for replacement.
They can pose health issues for you and your loved ones, particularly the elderly. If you spot signs of mould growth in and around the tub, you may consider replacing your tub.
You should ensure that the walk-in tub you have chosen should accommodate you without any difficulty. If you are having trouble getting in or out of your tub, you might want to look at available replacement options.
If you’re experiencing any of these above-stated situations and are ready for a walk-in bathtub replacement, let the professionals at Caledon Tile Bath and Kitchen Centre help you make it happen.
It is important to understand the very basic difference between your standard bathroom tubs and walk-in bathtubs.
Unlike a standard bathtub, a walk-in tub comes with a lower threshold, higher walls, a built-in seat and a door that opens to allow the bather inside. Walk-in tubs are more functional in terms of accessibility for handicapped individuals or the elderly. Walk in tubs are easier to get in to and have less of a chance of slipping or falling because of the seat.
Unlike a standard bath-tub, the walk-in tub offers a deeper depth and an immersive bathing experience. Walk-in tubs also come equipped with handrails and anti-scald valves.
Our goal is to offer you the safest, most comfortable and highest quality walk-in tubs available. Our walk-in tubs are designed to be the answer to less affordable options. With our extremely low-entry step design, our walk-in tubs in Brampton and Mississauga are sure to meet your health and comfort needs.
