A Professional Tile Cleaning in Fort Myers, FL Restored This Shower's Former Beauty
October 10, 2016This homeowner was going to retire soon, so his sons wanted to give him a nice gift. Since he used to complain all the time about how worn-down the guest room shower looked – the tiles were dull, dingy, and stained, and the grout lines and joints were cracked and dirty – and his children knew how much he loved his home, they decided to have it restored for him.
His sons barely knew anything about hard surfaces, which is why they thought it was better to let professionals handle the situation. The only thing they knew was that the shower was dingy and in need of deep cleaning, so they went online to look for a Fort Myers tile cleaning company and found Sir Grout SW Florida among the top results. They then visited our website and watched the video testimonials, which made them feel confident about our company. In consequence, they requested a free in-home quote.
His children wanted to make sure that he wouldn't be at home on the day of the evaluation, so two of them took him out to lunch on the day of the appointment, while the third one stayed at home to receive our team.
Our team of experts arrived on the scheduled day to assess the situation and created a plan to restore the surface. Once they saw the shower, they realized what was wrong, and they explained that it was necessary to thoroughly clean the shower walls and floor. They also recommended repairing the enclosure and expansion joints and sealing the tiles and grout lines.
Showers suffer a lot of damage, as they are constantly exposed to water. These characteristics, combined with the porous composition of grout, is the perfect recipe for disaster, since it speeds up water damage. For this reason, tile surfaces and grout lines need to be sealed as soon as they are installed to prevent future problems. Moreover, grout's porosity can lead to moisture and dirt permeation, resulting in brownish stains that diminish the surface's appeal.
On the day of the service, the team began the restoration job by using a combination of pH-neutral products and a high-speed yet gentle scrubber that removed the dirt from the surface. Also, they used vapor steam cleaning to remove embedded grime in hard-to-reach areas. After this stage, the surface was ready for protection. Therefore, the crew began this part of the procedure by repairing the enclosure and expansion joints, as this would prevent water from seeping under the tiles. They continued this preventive treatment by sealing the tiles and grout with top-notch products, creating a shield against spills, dirt, mold, and mildew.
As soon as the team finished, they let the homeowner's sons in to show them the results. The customers were thrilled with the outcome. They thanked the team and marveled at the extreme makeover that the shower had undergone. They were going to reveal the surprise to their father later that night while having dinner with the family. Before our team left, the homeowner's sons said they would recommend our work to anybody in need of a similar service.
