A Grout Cleaning Job in Fort Myers, FL, Restores This Grimy Bathtub Enclosure to Its Pristine Beauty
January 26, 2017This couple in Fort Myers had started to notice that their once-white and clean bathtub enclosure was anything but that. The grout had a brownish color that gave the white tiles an unpleasant look. The couple knew they had to take action right away before things got worse. The problem was that they were so caught up in work that they barely had time to do something about it. Not knowing exactly how to restore their bathtub enclosure to its immaculate state and having no time to figure it out by themselves, they decided the best they could do was put their bathroom in professional hands. They searched online for a Fort Myers grout cleaning company and quickly found Sir Grout SW Florida. They placed a call and requested a free quote.
White is an elegant color that represents purity and cleanliness. When you have a white bathroom, you know that you will be dedicating a lot of time to its maintenance. This couple knew exactly what they were getting into when they decided to install white tiles in their bathroom. At first, they were always cleaning the tiles, but as they got caught up in work, they started to put less effort into their maintenance. They used regular household products, but, after some time, the grout lines no longer looked white. It looked as if someone had changed the grout color.
When our professional grout cleaning team arrived at their home, they first assessed the situation and took a couple of photos of the bathroom's state. The grout lines of the bathtub enclosure were stained, but the good news was that a grout cleaning could make them look like new. We explained to the homeowner that when grout is not sealed, it can easily absorb dirt, which leads to staining. We also mentioned that when dirty cleaner or water residue is left to sit, dirt settles into the grout; that's why it is so important to dry the surface after cleaning it.
To restore the enclosure, the team started with a deep cleaning procedure that involved the use of our proprietary tile and grout cleaner and a high-speed, vertical scrubber. For the most difficult areas, they used steam cleaning. After the tiles were completely clean and dry, they applied our proprietary grout sealer, ColorSeal. ColorSeal is not an ordinary sealer; it's made from the highest quality ingredients, and it will not only make your grout look like new and change its color, but it will also preserve it and make it stain and waterproof.
When our team finished the job, they proceeded to take some photos; they wanted to document the before and after of the bathtub enclosure so the homeowners could see the difference. The homeowners were astonished; the difference was remarkable. They said the bathtub looked as it did on the day it was installed. It was as if dirt had never accumulated in the grout lines. They wanted to show everyone how beautiful their bathtub looked, so they decided to post the photos on their social media accounts. They thanked our team and promised to recommend us to those with similar problems.
Before leaving, our team gave them some easy-to-follow recommendations. They suggested that they clean their tiles using only pH-neutral cleaners and keep the bathroom dry using a squeegee to prevent mold and mildew growth on grout lines. They told them that if they needed more recommendations, they could always go to our website and visit our Care Tips and Products section.
