Nothing is more relaxing than laying back enjoying a nice, long soaking bath. Howeverif you have missing or cracked sealant around the tub it may not be as relaxing experience as you'd hope for. Not only does this look bad, but also it can lead to mould, mildew and other issues. Even when you have a perfectly sealed tub, after a time the sealant can crack or break. You may put off fixing this, because you think you need to hire someone to handle the project for you. Actually, replacing the tub seal is a task that even a novice can complete. The key to handling tasks like this is to make certain you have the right tools for the job.
