Initial attempt to remove silicone
When silicone seals around a shower unit show signs of leaking it is time to remove the ineffectual sealant and replace it with a fresh efficient seal. That however is easier said than done as testified historically by those using outdated methods to painstakingly remove the defective sealant – very often with little success. There always seemed to be a residual light film of silicone left behind after brave attempts to remove the sealant completely were thwarted by poor silicone removal product performance. The consequence of a totally unclean surface is a less than satisfactory repair job with the replacement silicone unable to gain effective adhesion on wall tiles that are not totally clean due to the film left from the old sealant removal. This added issue could in effect render any new sealant ineffective which would just pile frustration upon frustration and prevent a permanent solution to the initial leaking silicone problem. There is however a revolutionary product now available that can reverse that frustrating situation.
