One common question we are consistently asked as professional caulkers, is “how to remove mold from shower caulking”. Despite what cleaning suppliers might tell you the answer is there is only one way, and that is to cut out the silicone and replace it with a mold resistant silicone.

As much as we would like to tell you it can be cleaned off and many people might tell you the same thing, there is no way to extract mold out of the silicone. You have to cut every last bit of it out of your shower, then using your preferred mold killer to get the surface back to the beginning.

Now take a break while you allow the surface to completely dry, pull out your silicone gun & re seal the shower down to every last corner. Make sure to use a mold resistant silicone so all your hard work is not for nothing.

There is only one last step to your fresh new shower. That is to sit back and let the silicone dry, we advise to leave it 24 hours to completely cure. It is then time to enjoy you showers again without the presence of mold making you uncomfortable.
