3 Ways Recaulking Can Bring Your Tile Back to Life

If the idea of stepping into your shower is unappealing because the tile that surrounds it looks old and ugly, we have some good news for you: sometimes it’s not the tile that’s the problem, but the caulking. Recaulking your shower can give its tiled surfaces new life and make you feel good about using it, and professional recaulking services, like those offered by The Grout Medic, can get the job done. Our caulking contractors know how to safely remove old caulk without causing any damage to tiled surfaces, and with their expert care, can leave those areas looking like new again. Let’s take a look at three benefits of a well-done caulking job.

Seals out Mold and Mildew

Caulk provides a water-tight seam between the tiles on your counters, tubs, and showers, but over time it can deteriorate, which can allow water to collect behind them and create a breeding ground for mold and mildew. There are many health risks associated with these growths, so it’s important to move quickly if you suspect they are anywhere in your home. Relying on The Grout Medic’s professional recaulking services will rid your home of the risks and refresh any surface that needs, both at the same time. We’ll make sure all the old caulk is safely removed and disposed of. The entire area will be thoroughly cleaned before a fresh application of caulk is applied to all the seams in question. The end result is a tiled surface that looks good and is good for you.

Adds Beauty

Tiled surfaces are a wonderful way to add beauty and character to a room, and many of us may want to splurge a little when it comes to incorporating them into our homes. But if the caulking on those tiled surfaces is dirty or cracked, your investment may as well be for naught. Old caulk can take away from the aesthetics of beautiful tile. Fortunately, our caulking contractors can restore the beauty and value of your investment and leave your tiled surfaces looking like new again. Our thorough and expert process will leave you happy with your tiles and confident about the decision you made to install them in the first place.

Prolongs Life

A fresh, tight seal created by clean and expertly applied caulk does more than protect against mold and add beauty to your tiled surfaces. It also prolongs the life of your investment in those surfaces. When caulking becomes brittle or compromised in any way, it leaves tile vulnerable to chips, cracks, and breaks. That’s why recaulking an area the moment you see signs of your caulk’s age is important, because the sooner you address this, the longer your tiled surface will be around to serve its purpose and enhance your home.

You don’t have to suffer unsightly tiled areas.  Professional recaulking services by our experts can bring new life to the tiled surfaces in your bathroom — or any other room in your home.
