Putting New Sealant Around your Bath

One of the things that can let a bathroom down and make it look a little scruffy, is sealant that needs replacing. Sealant protects the edge of the bath from any mould forming, leaks or damage caused by the water, but over time it does need replacing in order to stay protected and to keep your bathroom looking its best.

This is a job that you can do yourself, and there are lots of different varieties and brands of bathroom sealant to choose from, such as this one https://www.ct1.com/product-applications/sealing-bath-guide-beginners/ it is just a case of preparing and learning what to do before you dive straight in and start using the sealant in your bathroom…

Make sure that you have everything you need with you before you start, and that you have allowed yourself adequate time – a rushed job can result in the sealant not being applied correctly which looks awful. You will need gloves to protect your hands, masking tape, and of course the applicator (known as a caulking gun) and sealant. It may be that you need more than this but check the instructions on your sealant as they do vary depending on the manufacturer.

It is important that you use the masking tape before you begin to line around the area – this will stop the sealant from getting onto other areas and will give you a nice clean and even looking finish. You then will need to follow the instructions and prepare the sealant, which to be deposited needs to be put into the caulking gun.
