Bathrooms are designed to endure significant wear and tear, but they can become damaged over time without regular cleaning and maintenance.
London residents spend the most on replacing and fixing bathroom fixtures, accumulating to an average of £1,118 each year. The southwest of the UK is the savviest with bathroom upkeep, spending less than half this figure on average at just £531. Residents in Cardiff and Birmingham require a plumber the most often, with 5% requesting these services daily.
In terms of professional maintenance, residents in the northeast require a plumber the most frequently – every six months on average. On the other hand, residents in Wales and Northern Ireland can go an entire year without calling out professional plumbing assistance, requiring a plumber every 13 months on average. Surprisingly, almost 20% of Brits have never had an experience that requires a plumber.
