A Shower in Athens Went from Moldy to Spotless Thanks to Our Grout Sealing Crew
January 20, 2023For almost three months, a homeowner in Athens had been making attempts to revamp his shower, but the outcome had been lackluster at best. Between the moldy grout and the soapy film spreading all over the tiles, routine maintenance became harder by the day. The homeowner missed that sense of relaxation that he felt each time he stepped into the shower, so he decided to trust the best restoration service in the area.
Because he'd heard about Sir Grout Athens before, the homeowner already knew that he would contact our Athens grout sealing crew when he visited our website. He browsed some of its content, taking special interest in our picture gallery, before contacting our techs online. He was amazed by the quality of our results and couldn't wait to give his shower the same care.
A few days later, our techs went to his apartment for an in-home evaluation. It didn't take long for them to understand the client's concerns over the shower. Most of the mold gathered around the horizontal joints but all the grout lines had been affected by soap scum and moisture buildup. As a result, no part of the shower looked clean, to the point that the horizontal seams could represent a safety hazard. Its dull appearance was enough to get any homeowner depressed so our techs wasted no time before identifying the best way to deal with the problem. They explained how Sir Grout's method could enhance the protection of grout and tile surfaces. And, unlike some of the cleaners the client had tried over the years, the process wouldn't subject these surfaces to toxic ingredients and chemicals. The client was on board with the plan and immediately scheduled a new appointment for the restoration.
On the appointed date, our techs returned to the client's home with the necessary equipment. First, they soaked the shower walls and floor with a pH-neutral cleaner. As the product did its job on the surface, our techs removed the loose dirt from the grout and took turns scrubbing the tiles. By the time they started steam cleaning the area, all the stickiness had disappeared. Our product combines high-quality ingredients to ensure maximum cleaning power; shower maintenance takes only half the time and the results last for much longer.
The next step was to repair the horizontal joints. To do this, our techs removed the loose caulk and installed water-resistant epoxy grout on the seams. This would protect the shower's structural integrity and increase its durability against wear and tear. Our techs moved on to the walls, applying ColorSeal on all the grout lines to make them match the tiles. This unique sealant guarantees the best protection to prevent many of the stains you expect to see in a shower. It inhibits the spread of mold and mildew while keeping soap scum and dirt away from the grout pores. As a result, homeowners don't have to waste all their energy on shower maintenance.
Our restoration method left the shower with a clean, fresh look that the client loved at once. He praised our work on the seams and thanked our specialists for their services. Then, he promised to recommend Sir Grout Athens to all his friends and relatives in the area.
At the end of the appointment, our specialists shared some additional cleaning pointers and the client welcomed all their recommendations. They started by listing the risks homeowners take while constantly subjecting hard surfaces to toxic cleaners, from tile discoloration to skin infections and other health problems. PH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner remove many of these concerns. In fact, our product provides twice the cleaning power when compared to most cleaners and detergents on the market. It's the perfect way to complement the sealant's protection by removing the few stains that make their way into the grout.
Our crew also recommended not to use sharp tools as they could scratch the tiles and leave permanent marks. A towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee works much better when it comes to getting the stickiness off your shower surfaces. The best way to stop the spread of mold and mildew is by countering the early signs of moisture buildup. A weekly cleaning routine and proper indoor ventilation can do a lot for bathroom surfaces if you want to keep them looking nice and spotless for years.
