I have some substance leaking out from around the tile surrounding my
bath tub. It's kind of yellowish and more solid than liquid. I have
a tile cleaning company come out and the guy thinks it's water
damage. How would I know for sure?
The guy could be right, but I would trust more the opinion of a plumber.
Is that a smokers' house? Is that yellowish stuff seeping through he
tiles ? Do you have access to the tub drain? That's where I would start.
Also, you could try pouring some dye and water in each drain, bath tub
and toilette, one at a time and then wait, say, a couple of hours to see
if the color shows up around the tiles. Of course don't use yellow dye...
I wouldn't wait too long though. If the leakage gets bigger you can face
some serious and expensive damage.
