Shower Gets a New Look Thanks to Our Tile and Grout Cleaners in Monroe, NC
November 23, 2022It's challenging to keep a shower looking nice. It usually takes time and constant work to keep a shower from degrading. This next client of ours had neglected to pay much attention to one of his showers for a few weeks. That is, until he noticed the condition of the shower one day.
The owner noticed the terrible condition of the shower and immediately recognized he needed to contact professionals because it required more than just a simple cleanup. Concerned, he sought assistance on the internet. Most websites advised getting professional assistance in order to avoid structural damage. After giving it some thought, the homeowner started looking online for professional tile and grout cleaners in Monroe, North Carolina.
The homeowner came across our website in the first page of search results. He contacted us to book a free in-home consultation after watching several video testimonials from satisfied customers and browsing through our picture gallery.
On the day of the consultation, we went to the homeowner's home to assess the state of the shower. As soon as we came in, we noticed the walls' grout lines were in horrible shape. The grout had discolored and the caulk had deteriorated past its prime. The floor was very dirty and had an overall bad look. These problems were most likely caused by excessive moisture and lack of maintenance.
After some explaining, we offered the homeowner our multi-step tile and grout cleaning procedure. We'd begin by carefully cleaning the shower. We'd then fix the damaged caulk to prevent water from leaking under the tub. We also offered to use ColorSeal, Sir Grout's proprietary sealant, to seal the shower's grout lines. Not only would this restore the color of the grout, but it would also protect it from harmful exterior contaminants. The owner accepted our offer and a date for the job to take place was set.
On the day of the job, we returned to the customer's home, ready to perform the restoration. We started by soaking the shower's surfaces in a pH-neutral, soap-free cleaner. Our cleaner also includes cleaning properties that help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. We cleaned the whole floor as well as the walls. The areas that were more difficult to clean were cleaned with a steam cleaner.
Our team removed existing moldy caulk and cleaned the areas to be caulked. When the surface was dry, we applied new mold-resistant floor silicone caulk. After the shower was spotless, ColorSeal was used to seal the grout lines on the walls. This is an acrylic-based sealant that prevents water, soap, dirt, stains, mold, and mildew from penetrating the pores of the grout. ColorSeal comes in a variety of colors and makes cleaning surfaces simple and it has built-in grout hardening agents that help prevent grout erosion. The tiles on the shower's floor were sealed as well by our team.
When our team was finished, we showed the owner the results. He was surprised with the new look of his shower. He could not believe how well done the job had been carried out. Our efforts were praised by the owner and with a smile on our faces, we said goodbye to our client.
However, before leaving, we provided the homeowner some advice on how to maintain the shower's appearance. Cleaning the shower once a week with a soap-free, pH-neutral solution like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner was our first recommendation. This cleaner is suitable for both tile and grout and leaves no residue, unlike other store-bought cleaners. We also suggested keeping the surface as dry as possible. To do so, the homeowner should wipe away any excess moisture using a dry cloth. This procedure helps to avoid water seepage and the excessive growth of mold.
