Top 5 Reasons You Should Invest in Caulking and Joint Sealing Maintenance for Your Properties

Posted on 22th, Sep 19

As a property owner or manager, it is important for you to hire a professional Joint Sealing and Caulking Contractor to ensure there are no cracks or crevices in your joint sealing. If your caulking or sealing gets damaged or is allowed to deteriorate without proper maintenance, you allow your building to be vulnerable to elements such as water, mould and pest.

Top Five Reasons You Should Maintain Caulking and Sealants On your Properties

  1. Improved Energy Efficiency

As time goes by, cracks can develop around your window sealing, allowing for air to pass through. Joint Sealants play a critical role in improving energy efficiency by eliminating loss of heat through cracks in the window sealing.

  1. Keep Mould and Mildew at Bay

If your bathroom and other wet areas have not been sealed with a Sanitary Sealant (such as the Hexfix TR-68) designed to resist the growth of mould and mildew, you will start to notice that mould starts to develop after a few years. When this happens, it will be in your best interest to immediately remove the old sealant and replace it with a Sanitary Sealant – the ideal Sealing Solution for bathrooms, kitchens, laundry area and showers.

Mould is not just unsightly but can also affect your health. So, getting rid of mould in caulking and sealing should be a top priority for a property owner.

  1. Prevent Moisture and Water Damage

Moisture and water damage, when left untreated, can compromise the structural integrity of a building, resulting in a huge expense. The trouble is, more often than not, water damage does not become obvious until it’s too late. So, having a Joint Sealing Contractor inspect your property to see if any of the caulking or sealing needs to be repaired is a smart decision. It will save you a lot of money and regret in the long run.

  1. Prevent Insect Invasion

Gaps in walls and floorings can end up being breeding ground for insects. If your joint sealing has cracks or holes in it, getting it fixed ASAP can prevent your home from getting infested with creepy-crawly creatures – which are a big threat to your health and hygiene.

  1. Improve the Look and Value of Your Property

Stained, cracked or otherwise damaged sealing can make your property look old and dated. It also makes any potential buyer wonder what other bigger issues the building may have that’s not visible to them. On the contrary, clean, professionally applied Joint Sealants can make your property look pristine and well maintained. This, in turn, will reflect on your property’s value.
