ROANOKE, Va., Jan. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Trust Home Services, a leading HVAC and plumbing company serving southwest Virginia, reminds homeowners that outdated bathrooms may be more than just unsightly or inconvenient.

"Aging, poorly functioning bathroom equipment isn't just a cosmetic issue," said Ted Puzio, owner of Southern Trust Home Services. "There can be serious health and safety risks with older tubs, toilets and fixtures, not to mention decreased efficiency leading to higher utility costs."

The potential risks associated with older bathrooms include:

  • Mold and mildew: Bacteria can take hold inside cracks and crevices, contributing to poor indoor air quality.
  • Falls: Slippery floors and tiles and high tubs can be a challenge for anyone, regardless of age. Upgrades like handrails, no-slip surfaces and ADA-compliant design can reduce the risk.
  • Wasted water: Even with regular maintenance, leaks and reduced efficiency can be expected as equipment gets older. Lost water can add up significantly over time.
  • Major malfunction: Older equipment is more likely to break down, which could mean inconvenience and emergency repair or replacement.

"With concerns about social distancing and essential services, many people may be hesitant to start a major project right now," Puzio said. "Upgrading your bath to keep up with the latest style trends isn't urgent or essential. But if you suspect you're losing money because of an aging shower or toilet, or you want to reduce the risk of illness and injury, it's time to talk to a professional."

Southern Trust offers a full range of remodeling options, including customizable accessibility solutions, one-day remodels and bathtub-shower conversions. For more information, call Southern Trust Home Services at (540) 343-4348 or visit
