Tub caulking


We get mold in our tub caulking. We live in Oregon. I've even purchased the mold resistant caulking. It just delayed the mold growth for a couple of months. We have good ventilation. We have currently stripped out the old caulking. Any suggestions on what to use or how to recaulk to prevent the mold.

Thank for the help.

Re: Tub caulking


Sounds like you've tried everything possible. The only thing I can suggest is to wipe up any moisture that remains after a shower. I know, this is next to impossible especially with a family taking multiple showers every day, but, the mold grows because of the moisture. Hopefully someone else will chime in with other ideas.......

Re: Tub caulking


Including bleach into the tub cleaning process will help.

Re: Tub caulking


Are you using caulk... or silicone? 100% silicone shouldn't let moisture embed in it to start the mold growth process.
