Cork Floors Tiles Bathroom to Caulk or not to Caulk?

Posted by karrlas (My Page) on

My installer has installed Vida Cork Tiles and sealed the edges and tiles with 2 coats of Bona Traffic sealer. He then replaced the quarter round and then sealed the quarter round to the cork tiles with silicone caulk, around the whole bathroom, not just around the claw-foot tub. I did not expect that. My concern now is that the caulk will continually collect dirt and will become hard to clean and that it might eventually bond to the cork tiles and become difficult to remove/replace. I want to remove the silicone, but am worried about the floor being sealed enough. What is the best thing to do? advice?
