Caulking is one of those aspects of a home that comes readily finished and as such is usually easily forgotten. Unlike other maintenance, such as electrical or plumbing, caulking is often overlooked when it comes to also get maintenance. That being said, the caulking needs to be taken care of, if you want to keep your home in top condition!

What is caulking?
First of all, if you don’t know what caulking is, take a look at the edge of your bathtub, toilet or sinks. That little white line along the seams is caulking—a waterproof sealant and filler. You can also find it around the edges of your windows and doors. This is what protects your home from any water penetration and resulting water damage or any air leaks. Over time, you may notice that the caulking looks damaged or is discoloured. If it does, that’s a sure sign that it’s time for caulking maintenance! Otherwise, the risk of mildew and mould build-up can result in much more costly repairs.
Save money on energy bills
When a handyman fixes your old caulking, they are also helping you save money on energy bills. Cracks in your bathrooms or windows allow hot and cold air to leak in and out, which affects your heating and cooling bills. A handyman though, will be able to professional seal all caulking and stop those leaks. They will also be able to check other likely areas and make sure everything is properly sealed.
Protects your interior from exterior elements
In addition to maintaining the energy and temperature of your home, caulking keeps the outdoors out! Elements such as dirt, snow, water or even harmful bacteria, can seep in from any cracks. This can cause harm to your health, risk the growth of mould or algae and invite in dust which affects allergens. A handyman will not only check your bathrooms but also look around other rooms and areas. For example, exterior surfaces, baseboards, or wood trim should be checked for any damage or aging.

A handyman offers skill and speed
Caulking can by a DIY fix if you know what you are doing, but it’s better to leave it to an experienced handyman. A handyman will have the necessary skills and tools to ensure the job is done right the first time around. They’ll know where to check for leaks, what type of caulking material is needed and guarantee those leaks stay sealed. A professional handyman will also be able to quickly handle the job. With their skill and efficiency, they’ll have the job handled in a timely manner and without any stress.
Most importantly though, they will leave the mark of a professional in your home. As with any professional work, it’s an investment well worth the money. Not only will you save on any repeat repairs down the road, but it boosts the value of your home. Regular maintenance and professional care are the best ways to keep your house value at its best!
