Question: I will be moving into a condo in July. The master bath has a separate tub and shower. The realtor has recommended re-grouting the shower. The shower is probably 6×6 square feet. Is this something I can do myself? I’m not one of those “mechanical” females, but I would like to save some money. Thanks and blessings.

Gwen,

Thank you for listening – we appreciate you.

We are generally NOT the people to recommend doing such things as ceramic tile yourself.

To find out for sure what kind of mold it is you would need a certified mold inspection company or remediation company.

Call Scott at B-aware home inspections to identify the mold 248-651-2614.

Then if it’s something he does not recommend you tackle yourself.
