Our Collinsville Grout Cleaning Services Surpassed All Expectations While Restoring This Shower
February 16, 2022A Collinsville housewife had tried multiple ways to get rid of the stains on her master shower. Her family had been living in the same house for close to a decade, so she wasn't unfamiliar with taking care of the shower's surfaces. Still, the fact remained that the tiles looked dull, and the grout was in bad shape. Luckily, our Collinsville Grout Cleaning specialists had the solution to restore her shower's natural beauty.
Before contacting our specialists, the client had spent weeks trying to improve the shower's look. She took a lot longer scrubbing all the surfaces, especially the floors where the stains were more noticeable. This led her to see the extent of the damage sustained on the shower joints, and that was the push she needed to follow her initial instinct to call a professional restoration service. It took her just a few minutes to call Sir Grout Hartford once she started searching for options online, and wasted no time requesting an in-home evaluation through our "Request a Quote" form.
Per her request, our specialists were at her home a few days later to assess the shower. They immediately saw the signs of deterioration on the floor and walls. There was soap scum all over the shower's surface while soil and grime had darkened a large portion of the grout. The client confirmed that the shower hadn't been sealed in over three years, so this was expected, especially when considering the grout's porous surface. Upon a closer look, our crew noticed that some of the tiles were loose, and part of the joints needed repairing. They explained to the client that, with no sealant in place, there was no stopping generic cleaners from trapping the dirt on the surfaces. To solve the problem, the shower had to be sealed after a thorough restoration process using Sir Grout's professional equipment. She scheduled a new appointment right afterwards.
Our specialists went back on the appointed date to start working on the shower. The first step was cleaning all the surfaces and removing the soil and soap scum from the grout. Our crew applied a pH-neutral cleaner all over the walls, floors, and shower joints. Then, they used a high-speed scrubber to remove the dirt as it got loose. Our cleaner is the best asset for your shower cleaning duties because it removes all the effects of moisture buildup (fungi, mold, mildew, soap scum) without leaving your grout more vulnerable to wear and tear. After sanitizing the shower area with a steam cleaner, our specialists went on to make repairs when needed.
Our crew primarily focused their repairs on the shower floors, removing the damaged grout and fixing loose tiles. After this, they could start sealing the grout using our exclusive ColorSeal. Our sealant is the best protection to keep water, grime, mold, and mildew off your grout because it creates a barrier that wards any external substance from seeping into the grout pores. The client asked to have her grout recolored to match the shower's light brown tones, and the results speak for themselves. The restored grout matched perfectly with the tiles and made the shower surfaces shine brighter.
Following this, our techs used Stainmaster epoxy grout to recaulk the seams, making them more resistant and easier to clean. The shower looked beautiful and radiant; each corner was smooth, free of dirt or marks, including the parts of the floor that had previously been damaged. The client and her family were thrilled as soon as they stepped back into the bathroom and thanked us for all our services.
Our crew took the time to share some useful cleaning tips with the client. They started by recommending pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. While bleach and acidic cleaners are known for deteriorating hard surfaces in different ways, our product has no harsh ingredients that could damage tile, grout, or other hard surfaces. Moreover, it doesn't create a sticky film on the surface after being used and instead helps inhibit the growth of mold and mildew. We recommended using neutral cleaners and non-abrasive tools like towels or a squeegee to scrub off the soap scum. Keeping a dry space is just as important, so we suggested opening the windows a few hours a day to help the circulation of fresh air. This is particularly important in shower surfaces since the tiles and grout get damp at different points of the day, and shower tiles already require constant attention.
The client took notes of all our recommendations, asking questions in between and welcoming our input. On our way out, she promised to recommend our restoration services to her friends and relatives in Collinsville.
