Water seepage wall - how to repair?
 
Any ideas how I can repair water seepage wall by myself? Water is from bathroom floor I didnít think seriously few months ago but I see wall and wood are damaged from water.

You need to stop the source of the leak first. Looks like you need to reapply the waterproofing for your bathroom too. This is even before you do any repair to your wall and wood.

I worry when I see "myself"..
You'll need help from a pro contractor. Not something you can do on your own unless you know your stuff.

Thanks. We use that bathroom to clean mop is smaller than other bathroom. After I check, water is from wet floor while cleaning mop and didnít dry wet area property. This happened repeatedly for last few months and there is no more water outside and remain same status in the pics since we clean wet area. Can I leave it with no repair if no more water?

If your bathroom waterproofing is intact, even if your floor is wet, water will not be seeping up to the wall.

Don't bother repairing the wall and the wood skirting unless you intend to keep the bathroom floor perpetually dry as this will be a recurring problem. Furthermore, since the waterproofing is worn out, it only a matter of time before your downstairs neighbour complain about water stains and leakage on their ceiling.

Can show pic of other side of wall and the toilet floor? The damage suggest there is water ponding somewhere and there is moisture slowly creeping up the wall.

Ponding could be result of poor tiling workmanship / design, but also suggest waterproofing is intact.

I checked the other side but looks fine or maybe I donít see the problem area...

MCST will only be involved if it's common area or your downstairs neighbour complaint about water seepage on their ceiling from your unit. Other than that, you need to settle things yourself.

I came across this product which looks promising but don't know whether they ship to Singapore or not.

Usually a bathroom floor have a drop so that water collects like a pan and flows into the floortrap. Yours is almost flush with the outside floor. U hv a marble threshold to act as a kerb. This is very unusual as the waterproofing boundary will have no way to terminate properly. We dont know whether that wall is inside or outside the waterproofing zone.

One way is to do an epoxy coating on the entire toilet floor to recreate a drip pan like effect. Other than that is really all guesswork.

The door frame shouldn't be sitting on your bathroom floor, water shouldn't be touching your door frame. There should at least be a minimum of 20mm drop between the bathroom and outside space. Is there a floor waste near the shower area? Doesn't really make sense for water to flow to that wall area... seems that part of the wall is not waterproof.
