Do You Need To Reseal Your Shower?
When you first have your shower installed, it looks spick, span and truly beautiful… but over time, the fixtures and fittings will start to show their age and you may find that your stunning new shower is suddenly looking a little on the tired side.
In order to keep your shower working properly, it’s important that the sealant remains in top condition. This is what prevents water from leaking through the tiles, through the floor and into the foundations below your house, so it’s vital that you look after it and that you know when it’s time to reseal.
You could also take this as a golden opportunity to decide whether or not you need to regrout the shower as well, as this can save you time and money later down the line.
In terms of signs to look out for that might suggest it’s time to reseal your shower unit, keep an eye out for cracks in the tiles, any missing grout, wet carpet or damp floors, peeling paint, mould in drawers and cupboards near the bathroom and any peeling paint on the walls outside the bathroom.
Take a good look at the grout as well. If you see any mould that keeps returning even after you’ve given it a good scrub, this indicates that you have a sealing issue on your hands. Disintegrating grout also suggests there’s a burgeoning problem that you’ll need to deal with sooner rather than later.
It might seem like a minor issue, but old and ineffective sealant can lead to problems with floor stability through water-logged timber floors, damp home foundations, damp walls, mould development and so on… all of which will be much more expensive and time-consuming to deal with.
As such, prioritising resealing your shower can save you a lot of effort and money in the long run!
