Caulking bathroom sink

Hello,

i noticed there is no more caulking in our bathroom sink. There must be water build up in there. Possibly mold. How would you handle this situation as far as before recaulking it? It would most likely need to be dried and cleaned where the gaps are but itís impossible to get all the way in there without taking it apart? Thanks.

Pics might help. How bad is the caulking or lack of? What makes you think water is built up in the area. Is it black? Is the wall or tile soft to the touch? Is the sink feel as though it's firmly attached to the wall or does it feel like it might be loose?

See the link above to insert pictures. If the sink is top mount/self rimming, all you need is to seal the outside perimeter with kitchen and bath caulk after thoroughly cleaning off all the old caulk.
If you suspect water damage then that's a bad situation. Pictures will help people give you more specific advice.
