tiled shower floor question
Posted by Kevin Criss on September 15, 2002 at 10:15:07:
I just bought a 12 year old house. After we moved in the shower floor started showing mold around the outside edge. I have started to remove the old grout and caulking that had been added. by using a wet vac I have found that there is water remaining where I removed the grout. The tiles are still tight to the floor but I wonder if there is water under the tiles that will rust the pan? Is there a way to dry this out so that I don't have to remove the tiled floor? Also should I use a 10-1 bleach solution to kill the mold? Should I replace the pan if I take out the tile? I have not done a shower but I have laid tile. Is there a sand and cement mix that creates the underlayment that will need to be removed? Will this removal damage the pan? Sorry for so many questions, If you don't have time to answer I certainly understand. Have a great day.
