A Shower in Naples Looks Better than Ever After Getting Our Grout Sealing Services
June 30, 2022A homeowner in Naples had a sleek tile shower that had started losing its charm. The shower tiles had a unique layout, with sharp angles that immediately caught the guests' attention. This design was also the reason why the homeowner had no problem seeing that something looked off. He never fell behind on his cleaning schedule, but this didn't stop the stains from growing larger and more noticeable, especially in the grout lines on the wall.
Once he confirmed that his cleaning products made no difference in the shower's look, the homeowner was convinced that only the best Naples grout sealing company could solve the problem. When the homeowner asked around, everyone in his inner circle agreed that Sir Grout SW Florida was the company he was looking for, so he went online to learn more about our services. He was pleasantly surprised by what he found, and the results in our picture gallery fully convinced him to contact our specialists.
A few days after the homeowner filled out the "Request a Quote" form on our website, our crew was at his house, ready to conduct a thorough evaluation of the shower. It didn't take them long to identify the problem. The grout lines were stained, and the horizontal joints showed signs of decay. Moreover, most of the floor and walls had traces of soap scum discoloring the tiles. When our specialists asked about the homeowner's cleaning schedule, he confirmed that he'd used bleach and acidic cleaners on his bathroom surfaces. Our specialists explained that such products are harmful to grout and tiles. They strip tiles of their shine and keep the dirt firmly embedded in the grout lines, prompting cracks on the joints. Luckily, Sir Grout's cleaning equipment could leave the shower looking as good as new after a thorough cleaning, restoration, and sealing service. Our specialists described each step of the process, and the homeowner eagerly scheduled a new appointment to have his shower revamped.
Our specialists returned to the home as scheduled to begin the restoration. They started by cleaning all the shower surfaces until all the stains were removed. They soaked the walls and floor with a pH-neutral cleaner and meticulously removed the residue as the dirt loosened its hold on the grout. Our product is a homeowner's best asset when it comes to regular shower maintenance. It removes soap scum, mold, and other external elements quickly and effortlessly, all without causing damage to the tiles and grout. To complete this part of the process, our specialists steam cleaned the shower to enhance the protection in harder-to-reach areas. Then, they used an oscillating tool to remove the old caulk from the horizontal joints.
For the next step, our specialists sealed all the grout lines with a coat of ColorSeal. Our high-quality sealant provides the best protection to prevent external elements from opening the grout pores. It helps inhibit the growth of fungi, mold, and mildew, all while keeping the grout smooth and spotless. Because our sealant is available in multiple colors, our specialists could recolor the grout lines to match the shades of gray on the tiles. The result was very pleasant to the eye while making the shower look more hygienic overall.
To repair the cracked joints, our specialists installed our resistant epoxy grout until all the joints looked brand new, adding to their protection against water and other shower liquids. Then, they applied Tile Armor on all shower surfaces to complete the sealing process.
When we called the client back into the bathroom, he was thrilled by the results. The matching tones on the tiles and grout looked striking as they brought out the shower's modern design in the most flattering way. He thanked our specialists, declaring that there was no better service in Naples when it came to hard surface restoration.
At the end of each job, our specialists always take a moment to share additional cleaning tips with their clients. This case was no exception, and the homeowner gladly welcomed our advice. We recommended replacing traditional cleaners with pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. On top of preventing stains caused by soap scum, mold, mildew, soil, and other fluids, our product helps preserve the sealant, reducing the effects of wear and tear on all shower surfaces. Since shower tiles are always exposed to moisture, our specialists also recommended keeping an eye on the room's ventilation and allowing the circulation of fresh air. They also suggested using a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to clean the stickiness off the tiles without leaving scratch marks behind.
