Caulking Bathroom

Preventing water damage inside the bathroom is important. As part of your routine home owners maintenance, you should inspect the caulking in tubs, showers and vanities for cracking. Caulk is most commonly used around the edges of a bathtub and shower, or around sinks and faucets. When applied correctly, it should blend with the rest of your tile or grout.

"Keeping your silicone caulking clean will prevent mildew and mold from growing in your bathroom."

If cracks are left unrepaired with the high humidity in your bathroom, it can become an open invitation for mould and mildew to grow, often out of sight. To prevent this, remove any damaged caulking, showing signs of cracking gaps and replace it with new caulking. Remember proper maintenance of the caulking is much less expensive than the costly repairs that may be necessary if you sustain water damage.
