Prevent moisture damage

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.
