VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION
An Atherton homeowner recently reported that the mirror over the double sinks in their master bath fell off of the wall and shattered all over the bathroom. In the process, the countertop, cabinets, and flooring were damaged. Fortunately, no one was in the bathroom at the time, or they could have been seriously injured or possibly even killed. While relating the experience to their neighbor, they learned that the neighbor nearly had a similar experience. Fortunately for them, the mirror did not come completely off the wall without warning and they were able to add clips to the mirror to correct the problem.
It is very important that everyone check all of their bathroom mirrors to make sure there are mirror clips attached to all of the sides. If there are any mirrors in your home that were installed by the builder without mirror clips, it is very likely that at some point they will fall off of the wall without warning. Please check your mirrors as soon as possible. If you find any without the clips, pick up some ¼” mirror clips at Lowe’s or Home Depot and secure the mirror to the wall on all sides. Without this additional support, the adhesive used to attach the mirrors to the walls will eventually release the mirror from the wall.
