Many don’t realise how important joint sealants are to the look and durability of bathroom tiles or a bathroom sink.
Sealants are used to fill the cracks between tiles or sink to the wall to which it is attached.
The sealant you use is very important because if it’s of a poor quality- a mould colony can grow within the sealant itself within a few years – or even quicker, sometimes.
This can make your bathroom look quite ugly and have no-one wanting to use it.
Silicone sealants are extremely durable compared to polyurethane sealants. They provide excellent protection against moisture, preventing vermin and mould from getting in between the spaces.
Synthetic silicone sealants are flexible – they bend and move as your home does. Their flexibility is what gives silicone sealants their durability – making them the number choice of joint sealants employed in the building, construction, plumbing and tiling industry today.
It’s very easy for mould to take hold and grow within the sealant that separates the tiles in your bathroom or sink. Particularly, when the sealant is polyurethane-based or not been applied properly.
When this happens, you may wish to remove the old sealant and redo your tiles or sink.
Step one is to choose a silicone sealant company that is established. Established silicone sealant firms have been around longer, are more experienced and have a better grasp on how issues can be overcome through the sealant application process.
