Bathroom Remodeling 101
When you have mold or mildew problems, or just an ugly bathtub that is an eyesore, there are several options you have to correct the situation.
Option 1: Do Nothing
It goes without saying- you can always do nothing.
It's the cheapest option, but you won't likely be satisfied with the results!
If you already have a mold and/or mildew problem, you may be jeopordizing your family's health by not taking action. Constantly removing and re-applying caulk can be time consuming and frustrating.
Option 2: Reglazing
This option will require special ventilation. Toxic fumes are emitted and may seep into other areas of your home. Although this is a quick fix, the long-term effects can be harmful.
