Given that the shower room tends to be an extremely wet area due to a fair amount of water being splashed around while showering, it can begin to show some signs of wear and tear in vulnerable places. These are usually in the seams where a shower tray or tub adjoins the wall tiles.

Bath Sealing in Cheap
A typical sign of this situation includes a wet odour in the shower room. In some cases, it can show up on the lower floors first. A stain point will appear on the ceiling panels as a result of taking in water from the shower room leakages above. Apart from such a stain being an eyesore, there is an imminent danger if there are electrical wires near the boards.
Such a leakage would need to be addressed rapidly by recognising the actual dripping area and remedying at the earliest opportunity to avoid any risk from escalating.

When it comes to tubs, a common and persistent issue for a lot of tubs appears to be caulking or sealing which cracks regularly. Some house owners are shocked. The silicon cracks or tends to pull away from the wall after a number of months.
Bead size has a lot to do with it. That the width of the opening between the tub and the wall is irregular means that there will be sections that are larger while others are narrower, making it challenging to decide the best size bead to use.
If you use a larger bead, then you end up having an overflow in the narrower section without the silicon finding its direction into the space. When you select a smaller bead, your silicon winds up being ineffective in the larger spaces because it vanishes into the space without filling it.
The majority of house owners have actually shared that while deciding on DIY, they are careful to prep the area to counter any wetness by completely scrubbing and cleaning up with alcohol and letting it dry for a number of days prior to the caulking.

One trick is to make sure that you fill the tub with water prior to caulking. This guarantees that the tub is at its ideal weight and stretched out to leave an optimal space. When you do, the silicon has a much better opportunity of remaining in its place for longer, presuming you have actually done the preparation work well.
