If you are remodelling your bathroom or perhaps you are looking to update some of your fittings, there is one product that you will need to have to hand. This is Bathroom Sealant. You can find some great sealant from companies like https://www.ct1.com/product-applications/5-things-to-look-out-for-when-choosing-a-bathroom-sealant/ that are designed specifically for the bathroom.

Sealant is used in any location where you want to make sure that a fitting or wall coverings such as tiles are watertight. This is of course especially important in a bathroom. The sealant will be placed around the edges of the sink and the bath, around the edges of the shower unit and along joints in the walls where tiles meet.

Over time the sealant can become discoloured and damaged and it is possible to remove the old sealant and replace it with a newer version like the ones available from the company mentioned above. It is important to ensure that you follow the manufacturers guidelines when using sealant as you want to have the best waterproof seal you can. When a seal is not created you can find that water finds its way underneath your bath and shower where it can cause damage to your floor and the ceiling of the level below.

Mould and mildew can also grow underneath the sealant so it is important if you notice mould in these areas that you clean it with a specialist cleaner and assess whether you should replace the sealant.
