Hello @Collette 


Often times it is silicone that is placed between where the floor meets the wall tiles. In order to remove the old silicone you need a silicone scrapper tool. After removing and cleaning the area you can then apply new silicone to the area and have a nice new looking  bathroom seal.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Collette. It's wonderful that you've joined us and many thanks for your question.


It's great to see @redracer01 has already offered some helpful advice. Can you tell if it's a soft silicone in the joint or a hard cement-based grout? As @redracer01 has mentioned, this is an area where grout cracking is highly likely due to movement and flexible silicone is often used. You should find this step-by-step guide useful: How to silicone a gap.


Please let us know if you have any questions.
