Maintaining your bathroom is vital, not only for the value of your home, but to prevent costly maintenance down the road. This starts with the caulk around the shower stall. Over time, the calk does begin to wear down around the stall, which results in water damage. After enough water damage, mold and mildew begins to form around the shower, causing health issues, and possibly even damage to the walls and floorboards of the bathroom. This costs a substantial amount to correct, especially if it requires you to remove the bathroom tiles and shower, just to place down new flooring. Thankfully, with this bathroom remodeling job, it only takes a few hours of work, and you are able to perform the shower caulking yourself.
With the caulk applied, wipe off the excess caulk with a damp rag. This removes the additional caulk sticking out of the shower stall, but leaves the caulk stuck in the corner, so the seal stays in place. Once the excess caulk is gone, allow plenty of time for the caulk to dry. In fact, do not take a shower until the next day. Because of this, it is a good idea to perform this bathroom remodeling job on the weekend, so you have an extra day or so where you don’t need to shower.
