A Shower in Monroe Got an Impressive Makeover from Our Grout Sealing Crew
November 27, 2023A couple in Monroe had lost count after multiple attempts to restore the shower in their master bathroom. Through weeks of relentless scrubbing, they couldn't do anything about the mold gathering on the seams. Most of the grout on the floor was affected as well, taking an unappealing brown color in just a few weeks. The shower made a sad impression, but our Monroe grout sealing service was the answer.
When the first signs of grout damage started to show, the homeowners already had their hands full, just from trying to preserve the tiles' color on the floors. They didn't hesitate once they came across Sir Grout Athens, feeling that they'd discovered our website at the perfect time. They still took their time to read about our restoration process and admire picture gallery, and it only made the couple more confident in their decision. Not long after they called Sir Grout Athens, our specialists visited their house for an in-home evaluation.
They inspected the shower from top to bottom, checking for cracks and other signs of structural damage. The damage to the seams was fortunately mild, but their surface was still stained beyond recognition. The grout on the walls was also affected, and the problem only became more visible the closer it got to the floor. Beyond that, all the tiles were covered in a layer of stickiness and the residual marks made the shower look unhygienic. As our techs explained at the end of the evaluation, these are all common side effects of moisture buildup and unsealed grout is particularly vulnerable to stains under such conditions. Traditional cleaners would be ineffective, which is why our homeowners offered to use their professional equipment to get rid of the dirt. They also needed to seal the grout lines, and the homeowners were on board with the decision after learning about the harsh ingredients in many of their cleaning products. So, the couple requested our restoration services and our specialists agreed to return to their home in a couple of days.
On the day of the restoration, all the equipment was in place and our techs were ready to start as soon as they got into the house. First, they used a special cleaner on the shower, soaking every wall to get the dirt loose on the surface. They removed the dirt by hand and repeated the process on the floor where they had to scrub for a bit longer. Thanks to our reliable cleaning formula, all the stains disappeared in minutes, and our steam cleaning was the final touch to enhance the shower's protection.
Then, our techs started working on the next stage of the process. They made repairs on parts of the seams and sealed all the grout lines using Sir Grout's exclusive ColorSeal. This acrylic-based sealant repels a wide variety of elements, from water and efflorescence to mold, mildew, and grime. It's the best way to preserve your grout's natural durability and show off its beauty. In this particular case, the recolored grout elevated the entire shower, accenting the tiles' shine and layout.
The clients had nothing but praise when our crew showed them the shower's final look. Every surface looked beautiful, with the grout finally matching the cleanliness of the rest of the bathroom area. Both clients showed their gratitude, remarking that our work was unlike anything they'd seen before and making plans to contact us for other home renovations they had in store.
In short, the shower looked amazing and the clients were satisfied with our job. Our techs ended the appointment with a few useful tips to help the homeowners with their cleaning routine. Shower surfaces can collect a lot of stains in a short amount of time, mostly due to the dampness permeating bathroom spaces. Our techs told the clients that pH-neutral products could counter these issues without overwhelming homeowners during their cores. Products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are highly effective at removing common stains from mold, mildew, and soap scum, to the point that no other cleaner is needed to make a shower glow. Our product also rules out the chances of hard surface damage because it doesn't have any harsh ingredients in its formula. You can use it on your bathroom surfaces as many times as needed throughout the week and get high-quality results without fail.
Our crew recommended to keep an eye on the room's ventilation, especially if mold and mildew became a recurring problem. Pests thrive around damp surfaces and cleaning as a whole can be much more taxing for homeowners without the right ventilation system in place. Opening the windows and doors can help along the way if you feel like there's not enough fresh air around your bathroom surfaces. To deal with the worst stains, our techs instructed the client to use a towel, a squeegee, or similar non-abrasive tools. Some marks require more attention than others, and the right equipment is necessary to avoid scratching tile and grout in the process.
