Not sure if there is a category within which I should have asked someone else, but here goes. I have a relatively new home shower stall lined with "cultured marble" and a few grout lines where the walls meet the base are looking black, again. I've cleaned this previously with Chlorox, and I've replaced the mold resistant, silicone "grout" twice but it's back again. What's the best way to get rid of it? And what material should I use to prevent this?Thank you.Millard Trott
I've already put that in with my question.
Have all work permitted and inspected. WE KEEP GOING UNTIL YOU HAVE THE INFORMATION YOU NEED. I come and go. be patient.
Its an ongoing problem in most cases for several reasons.
- The mold spores are in the water and air
- The mold spores are in the seam behind the grout or caulking.
- You are not wiping the shower dry inside after you use.
Polyseamseal brand Tub and Tile caulk gets good reviews. Some say it will go 5 years without a mold or mildew problem. If you dry the sealed area once a day with wipe it with a clean paper towel dipped in a 25% chlorox solution once a week, it will very likely last that long or longer.
Loctite makes good products as a rule
Lowes and Home Depot carry it, and most hardware stores.
Thanks. I think $10. is a much fairer price for this little bit of info.
