Bathroom Caulk Inspection

WHY DO THIS?


A good book, a warm bath, and the smell of mildew… that’s the reality of your relaxing night in if you don’t check your bathroom caulk! A warm, damp bathroom wall is a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Keep water out of your walls and floors by making sure the caulk joints in your tubs and showers are tight.

How To:

  1. 1

    Look for discolorations (brown or black stains that look like mold or mildew) either in the caulk or grout or behind the caulk or grout.

  2. 2

    Look closely where the tiled wall meets the shower pan, tiled floor or the top of the tub. Also look at where the shower doors (if you have them) meet the walls. Make sure there are no holes, cracks or other signs of deterioration in the grout or caulk.

  3. 3

    If your caulk looks solid and clean, then you’re done! Reward yourself with a warm, mold-free shower or bath with DIY Bath Salts.

  4. 4

    If you need to re-caulk, then either get ready to do the job yourself or hire a handyman to do it for you! If you're feeling the need to release your inner-contractor, then check out our general caulking instructions.
