For a homeowner in Elberton, routine cleaning was getting harder by the day. Bathroom surfaces always required a lot of extra effort, and he was used to that, but his equipment wasn't enough when dealing with the mold on his master shower. After puzzling over the problem several times, he decided to start looking for professional tile and grout cleaners in Elberton.

He began his search online, and Sir Grout Athens immediately set the bar high. The homeowner was amazed by our picture gallery and amazed by the number of positive reviews left by previous customers. A bit later, he filled in the form to ask for an evaluation, happy to have found a potential solution to his problem.

The next day, our crew visited his house in Elberton for an in-home evaluation. The client gave them a rundown of his previous cleaning attempts and led them to the bathroom so they could look at the shower stall. It wasn't hard so see the source of his frustration. There was mold stuck between nearly all the tiles, standing out sharply against the white ceramic. The sealant had faded from the grout so the stains spread across the floor and every wall in the shower stall.

Our experts listed all the problems caused by chemical-based cleaners, from discoloration to embedded dirt on porous surfaces. This explained why the client had to struggle so much just to get each stain off the grout. The solution was a thorough restoration including the repair of the damaged grout around the horizontal seams. The client listened closely as our techs outlined each step of the process and finally requested a new appointment.

As scheduled during their first visit, our experts returned a couple of days later for the restoration. They started by preparing the shower stall with clear plastic and masking tape. Then, they used a permeating cleaner to get the dirt loose, which came in handy while working on the narrow grout lines. Our cleaner also restored the tiles' vibrancy since efflorescence had somewhat muted their color. Our techs also vapor cleaned the shower area to ensure that no traces of mold were left during the next part of the process.

For the next step, they replaced the damaged caulk on the seams with epoxy grout to provide more resistance against decay. When it was time to seal the grout on the floor and the walls, they carefully applied ColorSeal to each of the grout lines. Our acrylic-based sealant works as a protective barrier that keeps dirt and liquids off the grout pores, resulting in fewer stains overall.

By then, the grout matched the tiles in beauty and color, so our techs knew it was time to let the client see the result. As expected, she loved the shower's new look and praised the level of detail that went into revamping the grout. The client knew that she'd contact our team whenever she saw signs of wear and tear in other parts of her house.

These are the recommendations that our techs always share with clients at the end of each successful restoration. First of all, the vast majority of store-bought cleaners are ineffective when it comes to dealing with embedded dirt, and they're more likely to cause discoloration over time. That's why we recommend using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner since they don't have any of the acidic imbalances that prompt grout damage. Our product is the ideal solution to improve your cleaning routine in moisture-prone areas like a shower and other bathroom surfaces. It works against mold, mildew, soap scum, cosmetic residue, etc, removing the stains in minutes without releasing toxic fumes into the air. Another important tip is to avoid steel wools and other abrasive tools while scrubbing the tiles. A towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee will reach the dirt more effectively and homeowners won't have to worry about scratching the ceramic in the process.

Our last recommendation is to open the bathroom door and the windows close by to counter the effects of moisture in your bathroom surfaces. The constant circulation of fresh air stops the spread of mold and keeps dirt from being absorbed into porous surfaces like cement-based grout.

Beyond that, you can always count on Sir Grout Athens to provide high-quality restoration services to revive your shower.
