Maintaining the caulk in your facility is important to ensure that all cracks, gaps, and openings remain sealed. At Waterproof Caulking & Restoration LLC, we specialize in the installation of interior caulking systems designed to prevent a variety of deterioration and water intrusion problems.
Benefits of Waterproof Caulking
When implemented by a professional, waterproof caulking can pay off in both the short- and long-term. Waterproofing your facility helps prolong the lifespan of the structure and prevents outside water, dirt, and pests from entering into walls, floors, and ceilings. Waterproof interior caulking can also help prevent mold growth, rust, and corrosion caused by moisture issues. In addition, interior caulking reduces maintenance costs and may even boost property value.
Main Types of Caulking Used
There are several types of sealants that can be safely used in the home, including the following:
Fire caulk is an economical, non-combustible, fire-rated material that can be used to fill the annular space around pipes, ducts, wires, and other mechanical penetrating items. Fire caulking is governed by local, state, and federal building codes.
Latex caulk is a high-grade, paintable material that delivers excellent long-term performance. Latex caulk cleans easily with soap and water, has a minimal odor, can be used on both porous and non-porous surfaces, and is mold and mildew resistant. Latex caulking is often used along baseboards, doors, windows, and ceiling trim.
Interior caulking can solve a myriad of indoor problems. It can be used to seal air leaks around doors and windows, reducing drafts, and cut home energy costs. It can also be used on basement walls to prevent insects, rodents, and other pests from entering the property. Interior caulking is also effective at touching up tile, filling in gaps above, between, and below moldings and basements, and preparing various surfaces for paint.
Waterproof caulk is essential in areas like bathrooms which are susceptible to moisture issues. Bathroom caulking should be used around sinks, tubs, and showers to prevent water damage and ward off mold and mildew growth. Bathroom caulk should be replaced on a regular basis as it can start to chip, crack, peel, and discolor over time.
