If you’ve lived in your house a few years, you probably noticed that the caulk along your sinks, counter tops and bathtub is coming loose. These gaps may not seem like a big deal, but they can wreak havoc inside your walls. Moisture causes mold and even leaks – expensive repairs that can easily be prevented. A tube of kitchen and bath caulk costs just a few dollars, and you’ll avoid expensive repairs.
A great hint to make your new caulk look smooth and nice is to run an ice cube over it after applying, while it’s still wet. This will give it a nice smooth edge.
If you aren’t sure whether you have an issue, a home inspection can help find minor problems before they become major expensive problems. I recommend a home inspection every few years.
