Our Charlotte Stone Cleaning Experts Restored This Shower and Revamped the Surface for a New Look
June 25, 2020A resident from Charlotte needed our help to restore his natural stone shower. He contacted us because the surface had lost its appeal. While performing regular maintenance, he noticed the condition of the stone didn't improve. The owner wanted a quick solution, so he tried using some DIY cleaning routines he found online. Unfortunately, his efforts didn't provide the expected results. After his unsuccessful cleaning attempts, he decided to look for professional assistance.
Thankfully, he called one of his friends who was a former Sir Grout Charlotte client. She highly recommended our Charlotte Stone Cleaning service, saying we had done an incredible job in her house. Our satisfied customer advised him to visit our website to get more information. He followed the advice and visited our site. After browsing our picture gallery and reading all the positive feedback we receive every day, he was convinced we were the best option. He filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free assessment.
Shortly after, we arrived to perform the in-home consultation. The natural stone shower was in poor condition. The stone looked run-down and the grout had accumulated dirt, grime, and soap residue, acquiring a dark, unsightly color. We explained that regular cleaning is not effective to remove this kind of damage. After close inspection, we learned the grout lines needed sealing. Common grout is a porous mixture and can absorb external agents. To prevent damages, it's necessary to keep the surface fully sealed. When we finished the assessment, we concluded that conventional methods wouldn't provide the solution the owner expected. This task required Sir Grout's professional process and high-end equipment. We offered our stone cleaning service to address all the problems and revitalize the surface with a complete overhaul. The owner was happy with the offer, so he decided to hire us and we set up a date for the job.
We began the restoration a few days later. For the first step of the process, we cleaned the surface using our exclusive product and a high-speed scrubber. Our stone-safe cleaner doesn't contain any harsh properties and won't cause any damage. We painstakingly worked on the entire shower and left the surface spotless. After applying the cleaning solution, we used a steam cleaner to remove any embedded dirt. Once we sanitized the shower, we repaired the grout lines using professional diamond saws. We fixed all the issues and continued with the final step.
To finish the job, we applied a coating of our top of the line sealant, ColorSeal. Our superior product offers unmatched protection. It wards off dirt, grime, and other external agents, reducing deterioration from daily use. It's ideal for showers because it prevents mold and mildew growth. ColorSeal also improves the surface by giving the grout a refreshed look. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing the owner to match the tiles with the grout. When we finished all the steps, the shower had been fully restored and the stone had a fantastic brand-new appearance.
Our client loved the results of the stone cleaning job. He was pleased because the restoration had been fast, efficient, and cost-effective. After thanking us, he assured us he would recommend Sir Grout Charlotte to his friends, family, and neighbors.
Natural stone surfaces require proper care because heavy wear and tear can lead to quick deterioration. For this reason, we always provide our customers with recommendations for optimal maintenance procedures. We suggested setting a regular cleaning routine. To prevent damages, use only soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product offers many benefits and it's made with top-quality ingredients. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. Avoid using soap-based cleaners or substances with acidic properties. These products contain agents that can cause more damage and can harm the stone, leading to more severe issues like structural problems.
Mold and mildew can become a serious threat in damp areas. Keeping the shower well-ventilated and dry is essential to prevent this problem. To allow the moisture to flow freely, leave the door ajar or a window open. After using the shower, dry the surface with a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing regularly also helps to reduce the accumulation of dirt and grime.
