Caulking and re-caulking are old school practices still followed by many today. People use a sharp object as a caulk removal tool to remove their old and damaged caulk and then replace it again with a new caulk. This new caulk stays put only for a few months, after which it gets damaged. This gets you into a continuous loop wasting precious money and time. Furthermore, the wrong caulk removal tool can cause scratches in your tile and grout too. In this blog, we shall guide you to using the right tool for caulk removal and using an amazing caulk substitute.
Caulking is the process of applying a water-resistant material on the edges and corners of shower tile to prevent water to seep below or to prevent water clogging at the corners. The sole purpose of caulking is to make the corners water-proof and thereby discourage mold growth. The most common types of caulk used are silicone or acrylic. This sounds like an easy solution to seal gaps and edges in a shower. But, sadly, caulking does not give permanent solutions. While we will explain more about our better caulk substitute as a permanent solution to caulking, we would like to answer some commonly asked questions regarding caulking.
Caulk is best used to fill a gap of around ¼ inches. For areas bigger than this space, some people first put a bead of caulk at the deeper end and then put another bead of caulk on top to seal it.
Yes, it is recommended to fill a bathtub with water before caulking. It is best to fill it halfway with water. Doing so will put the tub walls in a ‘central’ position, and allow the caulking to dry and cure at this point. This procedure will also deter the tub walls and caulking from flexing too much.
The most common way of removing dried caulk off your hands is by rubbing some butter or oil in your hands, until the caulk loosens and comes off. You can then rub some baking soda in your hands and rinse off.
But, unless you plan to stick to caulking and not try out our revolutionary caulk substitute, you will not need to fill your tub with water anymore or get dried caulk on your hands. We will explain in depth how useful caulking is. Here we have listed the common caulking problems.
