Cape Coral Grout Cleaning Experts Brighten Ceramic Shower
September 06, 2021A common problem often found in showers is dirty grout. Water seepage, improper cleaning and sealing processes, and toxic cleaning products can all contribute to this issue. When dirty grout is ignored, it results in expensive repairs. Most homeowners, unfortunately, do not detect changes in the appearance of their shower grout until it is too late.
Our Cape Coral grout cleaning experts recently restored a couple's lovely ceramic tile shower. The homeowners had discovered the shower wasn't in great condition a few months prior to our appointment. Dirt had accumulated in the grout lines, and mold had begun to form on the shower floor. They initially ignored the issue, assuming it would go away with time. It never happened. In fact, the situation worsened. As a result of this, the homeowners decided to try and clean the shower as best as they could.
They went to the store and purchased various cleaning products. When they arrived home, they started cleaning the shower. They noticed that after hours of cleaning the shower's surfaces with the products they purchased, the overall appearance of the surfaces remained unchanged. They had only been able to remove some of the filth that had become stuck in the shower's grout with their efforts. They observed many of the grout lines in the shower floor were fractured at that point. Concerned, they turned to the internet for help.
The majority of the recommendations he found online advised to have the grout lines professionally repaired. They read that if grout is compromised, it might lead to serious water damage. That's when they decided to look for a local hard surface restoration company on the internet. They came across our website shortly after that. They were confident we were the best fit for the task after watching video testimonials from delighted clients and perusing our before and after picture gallery. They requested a free evaluation and quote by filling out the form on our website.
Our professionals attended the clients' home on the day of the evaluation to inspect the shower. The floor was filthy and the grout lines were cracked and full of grim. Mold had invaded the joints as well. When our technicians inquired about the clients' cleaning regimen, they indicated that they only cleaned the shower on rare occasions and that when they did, they used harsh cleaning products. These cleaning products had caused damage to the tiles, grout lines, and caulk. When grout isn't properly sealed, most store-bought solutions will damage it.
Our experts offered a grout cleaning and sealing procedure for the shower's surfaces to resolve the issue. Furthermore, they offered to repair the damaged grout using our proprietary products. The customers accepted the proposal and scheduled a job appointment.
On the specified day, our experts returned to the clients' home to get the job done. They began the restoration procedure by soaking the shower's surfaces in a pH-neutral cleaner, which is completely safe for tile and grout. Our techs used a high-speed scrubber to rinse the shower's surfaces after letting the cleaner sit for a few minutes. To get rid of the mold, they utilized a steam cleaner on the shower's joints.
After the shower had been thoroughly cleaned, the sealing process began. The grout lines were sealed to finish the operation. To assure long-term preservation, ColorSeal was used. Our top-of-the-line sealant produces outstanding results. It protects against dirt, filth, and other external irritants, reducing everyday wear and tear. By renewing the grout, ColorSeal also improves the attractiveness of the surface. It comes in a range of colors, allowing the owners to match the tiles with the grout. The shower floor and walls looked completely different once our work was completed.
Our techs showed the homeowners the results once they were done. Their shower, which appeared to be brand new, astounded them. There was no trace of mold, and the grout appeared to be in perfect condition. They expressed gratitude for our experts' assistance and stated that they would recommend Sir Grout SW Florida to anyone they knew in need of hard surface restoration services.
Before leaving, our experts gave the homeowner some shower maintenance advice. They first suggested that they switch to liquid soap instead of bar soap, since bar soap leaves a sticky layer that traps dirt and moisture. Second, they advised them to avoid using store-bought products in their shower to keep it clean. Most homeowners are unaware that most of these cleaners contain harmful ingredients that can damage tile and grout. A pH-neutral cleaner, such as Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner, will effectively clean hard surfaces while extending the life of shower joints. As a final piece of advice, our team suggested that the clients maintain the shower enclosure ventilated.
