You can always tell when a shower gets lots of care, but sometimes a homeowner's best efforts can't stop the signs of decay. A resident in Charlotte was running out of ideas while trying to improve his master shower, and his work seemed to get harder with each new attempt. Efflorescence was embedded in the walls, painting parts of the tiles in an unsightly yellowish color. Likewise, there were large stains on the floor, so the shower had an unhygienic appearance no matter where you looked.

Under all his frustration, the homeowner was genuinely worried about permanent discoloration on the surface. He loved the shower's elegant layout and he didn't want to think about tearing down the tiles as a last resort. He was just hoping for the best when he contacted our Charlotte grout sealing services for an in-home evaluation. Still, it was an easy decision to make after the homeowner got the chance to browse our website to read more about our methods. Thanks to a straightforward process via our online scheduler, he secured an appointment after only a couple of minutes.

On the scheduled date, our specialists visited his home to check the shower stall. No parts of the shower had been spared; stains spread from all the corner joints, running from the ceiling to the floor in large brown spots. There was also no way to guess the grout's original color because every grout line was covered in mold and soap scum. A combination of chemical cleaners had weakened the sealant so nothing stood in the way as external elements seeped into the grout pores. The client was very concerned about permanent damage so our techs reassured him that all the stains could be removed without replacing the ceramic tiles.

Still, our experts needed to regrout the seams if they wanted to avoid a bigger problem in the future, so they made sure to stress the importance of these repairs after completing their inspection. The homeowner felt a lot better once our specialists finished outlining their restoration process and he gladly scheduled a new appointment when they offered to return that same week to get the job done.

So, our techs went back a few days later with a clear plan for the restoration. At the start of the process, they applied a surface-safe cleaner all over the shower, soaking each wall, the floor, and all the shower seams. This cleaner is the perfect solution to remove common shower stains. It simplifies the process so all the marks can be scrubbed off without demanding too much effort from homeowners. Once they had taken care of all the mold, mildew, and soap scum, our crew steam-cleaned the shower stall with a 275-degree vapor streamer.

For the next step, they started working on the grout, sealing all the grout lines on the walls with our special ColorSeal. This acrylic-based sealant stops liquids and other elements from creating new stains on the grout; it wards off all the dirt before it gets the chance to seep into the porous surface, preserving the grout's beauty for much longer. The client wanted to use a light beige tone for the grout lines and our experts met his request without any trouble. To restore the floor and the horizontal joints, they installed epoxy grout after removing the loose caulk. When they were done, all the grout lines had the most durable protection in place to withstand moisture and wear and tear.

As expected, the client loved the shower's new look. He was amazed by our work on the grout and couldn't stop admiring the vibrant colors on the tiles. He and his family expressed their gratitude to our crew, and they all promised to recommend Sir Grout Charlotte to everyone they knew.

Our techs had completed another successful restoration. With their work done in the shower, they took a few minutes to share additional cleaning tips with the client. First, they recommended pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our formula has several benefits over most of the options you see nowadays. For starters, you can expect maximum cleaning power to counter large stains caused by mold and shower products. Homeowners can save time because they don't need multiple sessions to remove deep stains and they can keep a spotless surface while using a single cleaner. Our product has no harsh ingredients, so the sealant's protection stays for longer on high-traffic surfaces and you don't need to deal with toxic fumes.

The best way to compliment the efficacy of neutral cleaners is by using the right cleaning tools. As our techs explained, steel wools scratch the surface and often fail to remove all the dirt. They always recommend using a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to clean bathroom surfaces, so they were pleased to see that the homeowner had stuck to using non-abrasive tools during his cleaning routine. Their final recommendation was to help the circulation of fresh air, by opening the windows a few hours a day. This way, the homeowner would have less trouble preserving his shower and other parts of his bathroom.
