Applying Caulk around a Bathtub By Home AddtionPlus.com
Hi, I am Mark Donavon from HomeAdditionPlus.com and today, I am going to show you how to replace your old caulk around your bathroom tub with new caulk.
So we have here is the caulk that seals between the tub and linoleum flooring has separated over the years. All we need to do is remove the old caulk and then replace it with a new silicon caulk to ensure that the linoleum stays—remains flushed with the floor and create a water seal between the tub edge and the linoleum edge.
Using carpenter’s knife, I am very gently scraping away the old caulk from the tub and linoleum floor, basically just slowly working my way down the edge of the tub lifting up the old caulk and then peeling the left. A putty knife also works well for removing the old caulk. You just slide it underneath the edge and just work your way back. As you can see here, it comes away fairly easy.
Now that we removed the old caulk, we are going to replace it with some new caulk, this design specifically for bathroom and kitchen. It contains silicon and will prevent any water from sipping from the tub edge down and underneath the floor of the linoleum.
In order to apply a caulk, we have to use our carpenter’s knife and cut the tip of the caulk container at a 45 degree angle, which we just did with this carpenter’s knife.
Secondly, using a screw driver, I push in to break the seal that frequently seals the applicator from the cartridge of caulk.
Now that we removed the old caulk, we are about ready to replace it with this new caulk. We have cut the tip of the caulk container at a 45 degree angle and we are going to apply it into the seam in one fluid stroke. You could see we are nice and consistent all the way down the length of the edge of the tub and linoleum flooring.
Now that we have run the caulk along the length of the tub, I am using my finger to press the bead into the seam in a very smooth, continuous motion.
Now that we have applied the caulk and run our finger down the edge, just kind of work its way into the crack, we used moist paper towels to get a smooth finish. This should dry within 24 hours and at that point, you are ready to use the area for bathing, showering, etc.
Hopefully this was useful and good luck with your caulking job.
