Does Your Bathtub Caulk Look Gross?
Whether you’re renovating your bathroom or repairing water damage, caulking is an important step in preventing serious water damage to your bathroom. Since the area around your bathtub is especially exposed to humidity it is especially important to do this carefully and correctly. While it may seem daunting at first, with adequate preparation and a few straightforward steps you can caulk your bathtub yourself with effective, professional-looking results.
Simply follow these seven steps:
1. Start Clean
If you are re-caulking your bathtub, be sure to remove all of the old caulk, and any mildew or soap scum from around the edge of the tub. Once the surface is clean wipe it once more with denatured alcohol to remove moisture. For a new bathtub begin with this step.
