Your condo unit facing a water leakage caused by upstairs neighbour?

Recommend Nano-G to your upstairs neighbour for a hack- and dust-free way to waterproof their floors.

Living in a condominium has its downsides. For one, you are likely to experience a water leakage from the upstairs neighbour’s toilet that causes your ceiling to form ugly yellow stains. This is such a common issue that in 2018, 4,390 cases made to the Strata Management Tribunal (SMT) was about inter-floor leakage issues and maintenance fee collection.

If you’re unlucky, you might not receive any help from the management to help rectify this issue.  

What needs to be done

Ultimately cooperation between the upstairs and downstairs neighbour is needed to fix the issue. This is because the upstairs neighbour is the direct cause of the problem, while the downstairs neighbour is inconvenienced. 

If you’re the downstairs neighbour, well, now is the time to work on your persuasion skills and convince your upstairs neighbour to come up with a solution with you to rectify the issue together. 

Here’s how to convince your neighbour to deal with their water leakage issue: help them find a reliable waterproofing expert to fix their problem- that doesn’t inconvenience them.

You see, most of the time these upstairs vs downstairs neighbour fights are about taking the responsibility and cost in rectifying the water leakage issue. It is especially so because of how much of a hassle it is to contact and schedule a time for a contractor to deal with the problem. Not to mention the noise and dust that the whole operation would create. 

A conventional waterproofing method is a  week-long procedure that hacks and replaces your bathroom floor tiles entirely, leaving dust and many other sorts of debris that linger even after a thorough clean up.  It gets messy very quickly- and is not the safest method for homes with children.
