Homeowner in Seattle Wins the Battle Against Her Dirty Shower Thanks to Our Tile and Grout Cleaners
December 16, 2023To maintain a shower from deteriorating, time and effort are typically required. For that reason, it's hard to keep a shower looking great. This next client had failed to maintain her master shower properly for a few months. That is, until one day she noticed the way it looked from up close.
The homeowner noticed the bad state of her bathroom floor and realized she needed to call in experts because it required more than just basic cleaning. Concerned, she looked for help on the internet. The owner began searching online for the most renowned tile and grout cleaners in Seattle, WA. Fortunately, she found our website and saw our previous work. After watching our video testimonials from delighted customers and going through our picture gallery, she contacted us to schedule a free in-home inspection.
Our team went to the house on the day of the appointment to inspect the master shower. As soon as our experts walked in, our team saw the grout lines on the floor were cracked and missing in some places. The grout all over the shower had been discolored, and the joints had worn out. The floor was unclean and had a horrible overall appearance. Excessive moisture and a lack of maintenance were most likely to blame for these problems. After analyzing the problem, we offered the homeowner our multi-step tile and grout cleaning procedure.
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 enhanced 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 reach were cleaned with a steam cleaner.
Our team removed existing moldy or failing grout and finished cleaning the areas to be regrouted. When the surface was dry, we applied new mold-resistant grout. 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 floor were sealed as well.
When our team was done, we showed the results to the owner. She was astonished by the fresh look of her master shower. She couldn't believe how smoothly the job had been completed. The owner congratulated us on our efforts and said she'd recommend Sir Grout Seattle to her relatives.
Before our team left, we gave the homeowner some tips on how to keep the shower looking nice. Our initial suggestion was to clean the shower once a week using a soap-free, pH-neutral product like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike other store-bought cleaners, this one is safe for both tile and grout and leaves no residue. We also advised that the surface be maintained as dry as possible. To do so, the homeowner should use a dry towel to wipe away any excess wetness. This process helps to prevent water seepage and mold formation.
