Bathtub was re-caulked by maintenance few months ago. 2-3 months after the caulk that the guy put in fell out. Given few other things that maintenance did that were poor jobs I am not sure I trust them anymore for anything I can do myself.
My bathtub has very varying space between the edge of the tub and where the tile starts. It varies anywhere from 0.5" to 1.25". It looks like there are multiple layers since in one part it fell out, and I am not sure what is in there (grout?). How should I go about repairing it?
My initial guess is:
- Let the bathroom dry overnight first
- borrowing multimax tool to clean out the whole area between tiles and bathtub (1*)
- utility knife to for basically same purpose. Also will use this to clean out the group between the tiles that are molded (pretty much entire thing)
- silicone caulk (not 'water clean up' type) around bathtub (2*)
- grout for between tiles
