Causes
Incorrect Products:
Acrylics and most paintable caulk ingredients feed the mold/mildew, allowing it to imbed into the caulk.
Silicone caulk molds, due to trapped moisture from behind that gets through from other cracked or missing areas.
Faulty Application:
Caulk should be applied only filling the voids, any bulky or excessive caulk applied to the tile will eventually break its bond and begin to peel. Once the caulk begins to break or peel it allows the water to penetrate beneath, causing the caulk to fail and potentially cause damage to the substrate if not properly fixed. 

Grout Cracking
Grout does not crack unless tiles, substrate or walls experience movement. In showers the edges or corners are expansion joints and will crack the grout with movement. On floors when tile or substrate moves the grout will crack, due to loose tile and or underlayment.
Leaking Showers
Caulk peels easily on the edges and starts to allow water to pass through, causing the mold/mildew issues and leads to leaking problems or damages if left alone. The shower pan should catch and properly drain the water below the tile surface, water leaking issues usually means a faulty shower pan, although we can surface seal to help prevent the water from passing through the tile and grout surfaces.


Solution
Most simply reapply caulk or grout, only making the problem worse. We remove all existing caulk and the grout beneath to open and expose the voids. Secure loose walls to help prevent excessive movement and properly fill the voids using our 2-part oil base epoxy
