Why Recaulking Failing Caulk is So Important

On the surface, caulk maladies are unsightly, but it’s so much more than that.  Failing caulk is not just an ugly face.

At The Grout Medic, we often speak about how caulk is your shower’s first line of defense against water damage.  We don’t mean to sound repetitive, but failing caulk is so critical, we must reiterate the importance of recaulking your wet space before your shower, bath, or sink requires more than just simple recaulking.

Failing caulk is an emergent issue.  You should recaulk your shower, bath, or sink at the first sign of caulk shrinkage, separation, or discoloration.  Here’s why!

The most paramount reason you should be worried about failing caulk in your shower is because it only takes a little water here and there over time, to seep to the structure behind your shower, and begin to cause water damage.  Even though The Grout Medic offers water damage repair, we know that you do not want to endure structural rot and a more expensive, large-scale repair, when our simple recaulking service can prevent it.  It’s human nature to note failing caulk, consider recaulking, and then forget about it or put it off.  One week turns to two, weeks become months, and before you know it, the damage is done.  Trust the professionals at The Grout Medic to recaulk your shower at the first sign of caulk failure.

The second reason you should recaulk your shower is because loose, failing caulk is a breeding ground for mold and mildew.  There is an array of health risks associated with mold and mildew in your bath and shower, or anywhere in your home.  Breathe easier with The Grout Medic’s professional recaulking service.  Our recaulking includes complete removal of your old caulk, an anti-mold and mildew treatment, and application of an advanced silicone caulk that will fight shrinking and separation over time.
