The first step is to ensure that the existing floor and walls are sound and level. Any cracks or damage should be repaired before any work begins. The floor should then be covered with a waterproof membrane such as a sheet of plywood or a tanking kit. The tanking kit should include a self-adhesive waterproof membrane that is applied to the floor and up the walls. This membrane should be sealed at the edges and around fixtures to ensure the waterproof integrity of the wet room.
The walls should then be tiled with waterproof tiles. A waterproof sealant should be applied to the joints between the tiles to ensure a watertight seal. The floor should also be tiled with waterproof tiles and joints sealed with a waterproof sealant. Once the tiles have been applied, it is important to seal the entire area with a waterproof sealant.
Finally, drainage should be installed to ensure that any water is quickly and safely removed from the wet room. The drainage should be connected to the main drain and should have a trap installed to prevent any odours from entering the room.
Once these steps have been taken, the wet room can be used with confidence. By following these steps, you can ensure that your wet room will be safe and effective.
