Our Caulking Services Offered a Perfect Solution to Restore This Shower in Guilford, CT
January 30, 2024Keeping showers clean and beautiful is a priority for many homeowners, but this is not an easy task as standard methods can fail to provide satisfactory results. For a Guilford resident, this household chore had become a headache. The owner cleaned her shower regularly, but she noticed that despite her best efforts, her tiles and grout remained dingy and unappealing.
After searching online and trying other methods that didn't work, she concluded it was time to seek professional assistance. Thankfully, her search didn't take much time as one of her friends told her our caulking services in Guilford, Connecticut, were the best in town. Our loyal client said we had done an excellent job restoring his kitchen floors a few months earlier and advised her to contact us without hesitation.
She visited our website and was happy to see all the information that was available to her. She then read a few of our blog posts and viewed before and after pictures, which gave her the confidence to fill out our online scheduler to request a free evaluation on a day and time that was most convenient for her.
As always, we arrived on time, in uniform, and in our Sir Grout vehicle on the appointed day. After quickly assessing the problems, we told her that the caulking was showing signs of mold, peeling, and breaking, which is a serious concern as water will begin to penetrate the walls, causing severe damage. Ignoring this issue can only lead to extensive, costly repairs down the line, so it was crucial to properly address it as soon as possible.
We discussed our assessment of the shower with the owner and suggested the best solution to fix the issues and restore the surface. We recommended our tile and grout cleaning, recoloring, and sealing services using Sir Grout's proprietary products because they are the safest, most advanced products on the market. We told her we would replace the damaged caulking, color seal the grout to bring back its original color, and ensure her shower would look like new again.
We gave her a no-obligation quote outlining the work we would perform. She was pleased with the reasonable quote and immediately requested to schedule the job on a future date and time that was convenient for her.
We arrived on the appointed day and time, ready to restore the shower. After preparing the area with clear plastic and masking tape to ensure it was protected while we worked, we set up our equipment and began our multi-step process, letting the homeowner know we were available to answer any questions she might have.
First, we cleaned the surface using a high-speed scrubber and our exclusive cleaner. We explained to the client that our product uses high-quality ingredients that wouldn't leave a residue or damage the shower's surface.
Next, we used a 275-degree vapor steam cleaner to remove embedded dirt and kill mold spores. Satisfied the grout was spotless, we repaired decaying and damaged grout to ensure a beautiful, consistent appearance.
For the next step, we addressed the caulking. Since the caulk was damaged, we replaced it with a resilient epoxy solution. Unlike common mixtures, this product isn't porous and can withstand day-to-day wear. It's ideal for showers because it's resistant to mold and mildew.
Finally, we sealed the grout lines with our flagship sealant, ColorSeal, a high-quality product that protects against dirt, water, stains, and other damage. In addition, it reduces wear and tear, making it easier for the homeowner to maintain.
During our free assessment, we explained to the client that what makes our ColorSeal stand out is that it gives grout a uniform color and a completely revitalized appearance, improving the surface tenfold. In addition, our large variety of colors almost always ensures we have a color to match the original color of the grout, or many homeowners choose to change it, providing a new look.
After cleaning up, we invited the homeowner to view the results. She was impressed by what she saw and said she felt like she'd stepped into a new shower. She thanked us for a job that exceeded her expectations and promised to recommend Sir Grout's services to family and friends with any hard surface-related issues like hers. She also mentioned she would leave a five-star review on Google to ensure others knew about Sir Grout's outstanding products and services.
Before leaving, we gave the homeowner some recommendations and helpful tips for maintaining her shower. We suggested a weekly cleaning routine using pH-neutral and soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. We told her it delivers remarkable results, and because it's non-toxic, it won't harm anyone in her household, including pets.
We also suggested she avoid using soap-based products or substances with acidic properties because they contain harsh chemicals that damage the surface and leave a residue that often seeps into the grout, causing discoloration, staining, and other issues.
Since mold and mildew are a potential health threat, we emphasized the importance of taking measures to help prevent their growth. We suggested keeping the area well-lit when possible, providing a source of fresh air by leaving a door or window open, and, after using the shower, drying surfaces with a squeegee, towel, or terry cloth.
