How to remove caulk: What to know
Caulking is important for keeping bathrooms, kitchens, and other household areas clean and damage-free. Caulk is used to fill cracks and seal joints around windows, doors, plumbing, siding, and fixtures. This prevents air, water, dust, or other materials from infiltrating seals and keeps things tight.
Good caulking can be the finishing touch that makes a difference between a sloppy fix or a clean, professional installation. We recommend Loctite Polyseamseal Acrylic Caulk with Silicone, a high-quality acrylic caulk formulated with extra silicone for a durable, powerful seal. It sets quickly, is easy to apply, and locks out moisture, air, dirt, or any other penetrating materials.
But with time, even the best caulking can get dingy or lose its seal. Before undertaking many household projects, such as installing new fixtures or tiles, it may be necessary to remove existing caulk. It can be a time-consuming process, but it’s worth doing right.
