Bath & Shower Tray Silicone Replacement In London
Over time, it is common for the silicone sealant around baths (reseal baths), shower trays, and sinks to deteriorate. In certain instances, unsightly black mould spots may develop, compromising the appearance of an otherwise neat and tidy bathroom. Additionally, bathroom sealant may lose its adhesion and detach from surfaces, potentially resulting in water leaks or water seepage beneath tiles, leading to tiles lifting.
What is Silicone?
Silicone is a versatile synthetic compound in various forms, including oil, rubber, and resin. It is also known for its heat resistance and rubber-like properties.
However, silicone is a versatile and durable product used in various applications in and around a house. It provides an effective seal around bathroom shower trays, sinks, baths and the kitchen. However, it is essential to apply the sealant correctly and prepare the surface thoroughly by removing all the old sealant before applying the new sealant. Surfaces need to be clean and dry to ensure adhesion. A sealant gun and a sealant finishing tool are recommended to get a clean, even fillet/concave finish. Silicone sealant can last many years, providing a reliable seal to keep water and moisture away.
Like anything, silicone does have a service life and will deteriorate over the long term. Once it looks ‘tired’ or cracked, it can lose its effectiveness allowing water to seep into cracks and crevices. This condition could lead to dampness and rot or a build-up of mould, which can pose potential health risks. This is particularly common in showers or baths, where constant movement can cause silicone detachment.
When it comes to bathroom or shower repairs, it’s crucial to monitor any areas that may have cracked or lifted. These vulnerable spots can lead to serious dampness issues if left untreated, which is why it’s crucial to re-silicone them promptly to remove the dampness.
