Waxhaw Caulking Services Bring Joy To This Homeowner's Life
November 19, 2021It's tough to keep a shower in good shape. Time and money are typically required to maintain a shower from deteriorating. A homeowner from Waxhaw, NC, discovered this the hard way. She loved her house, but she didn't have enough time to keep it tidy. She had detected a problem with the shower, but because of her busy work schedule, she didn't have time to clean the shower.
One morning, the owner went to a nearby store and bought a lot of cleaning materials in order to clean the shower. When she got home, she started cleaning the shower's surfaces in the hopes of seeing improvements quickly. As she cleaned the joints, she noticed the caulk behind the grime was badly cracked. As a result, she recognized the shower would require more than just a simple clean up. Concerned, she sought assistance on the internet. Most websites advised getting the floor repaired by specialists to avoid significant water damage. After giving it some thought, the homeowner agreed that she wanted to avoid unnecessary expenditures. As a result, she began looking for Waxhaw Caulking Services online.
She came across our website in the first page of search results. The homeowner called us to book a free in-home evaluation after watching several video testimonials from satisfied customers and browsing through our picture gallery.
On the day of the examination, we went to the owner's home to evaluate the shower. As soon as we entered, we noticed the shower's grout and expansion joints were in horrible shape. The grout was discolored and the caulk was cracked beyond repair. These problems were most likely caused by excessive moisture and poor upkeep. We inquired about the cleaning routines of the owner. She went on to say that despite trying to clean the caulk and grout lines with store-bought materials recently, she rarely had time to clean the shower. After evaluating the products, we determined they were acidic-based. This explains why her efforts had failed to produce favorable results.
The owner inquired as to whether we had a solution to the situation. We quickly offered her our caulking services as well as a step-by-step plan for restoring the aesthetic of the shower. We'd begin by carefully cleaning the shower. We'd then fix the broken caulk and regrout the surface to prevent water from leaking beneath the shower's floor. We also offered to use ColorSeal, our own sealant, to seal the shower's grout. Not only would this treatment restore the color of the grout, but it would also protect it from harmful exterior pollutants. The owner accepted our offer and scheduled an appointment for later in the week, knowing that we could restore the shower.
On the day of the task, we returned to the customer's home, ready to do the service. We started by soaking the shower's surfaces in a pH-neutral, non-toxic cleaner. This cleaner also has enhanced qualities that help to prevent mold and mildew growth. A high-speed scrubber was then used to clean the shower's grout lines. The portions that were more difficult to reach were cleaned with a vapor steamer.
After cleaning the shower, we scraped out the damaged caulk and cleaned the areas before regrouting the joints. Finally, we used ColorSeal to seal the shower's grout lines. 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.
When we were finished, we showed the results to the owner. She was astounded by the improved look of her shower. She was especially relieved to learn that ColorSeal will make maintenance simple. She acknowledged her appreciation for our exceptional service and mentioned that she would refer Sir Grout Charlotte to friends and family.
Before leaving, we provided the homeowner some advice on how to maintain the shower's appearance. Cleaning the shower once a week with a 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 growth of mold.
