Grout Sealing Job Gives a Makeover to This Master Bathroom in Fort Myers, Florida
May 23, 2016This couple in Fort Myers, Florida owned a beautiful master bathroom with tile surfaces. This was one of the couple's favorite areas of the house and it was easy to understand why – the amazing master bathroom included a shower with a bench and a comfortable bathtub that provided the perfect ending to every day. However, over the past year, the couple had grown concerned about the unappealing look of the grout lines in the shower, floor, bench, and the tub enclosure, which were now stained and grimy.
Since this issue worried them so much, they decided to take matters into their own hands and scrubbed the grout lines with a whole range of cleaning products, but no matter how hard they scrubbed, it just wouldn't do the trick. The homeowners quickly became frustrated and began feeling hopeless. They started to think that the bathroom was beyond repair, but before they gave up, they searched online for Fort Myers grout sealing services and were happy to find Tag,SiteName's website. After seeing the before & after pictures from some homes with similar problems, they decided to call our team to schedule an appointment.
Florida is known for its hot and humid weather, and while it's one of the best things about living in the Sunshine State, these conditions can cause damage to sanded grout, which is very porous. These humid and damp conditions favor the appearance of mold, mildew, and other bacteria, which seep into the grout lines making showers and floors look grimy and dirty. Add daily foot traffic, moisture, soap, and other chemicals, and this can cause staining.
The best thing you can do is to have your grout sealed by professionals when the tiles are installed as a precaution. Additionally, it is important to avoid cleaning agents that contain soap and ammonia because these can affect the color of the grout. Fortunately, our customers were in good hands thanks to Sir Grout's proprietary ColorSeal, which recolors grout lines that are stained without having to remove the original grout.
When the Sir Grout team arrived to inspect the homeowners' master bathroom, they immediately told them there was nothing to worry about, since it was nothing that a thorough grout cleaning and sealing service couldn't fix. The couple was relieved to hear such good news and let the team proceed to the task ahead. To clean the grout and tiles, the team used a combination of pH-neutral cleaners and vapor steam cleaning to remove the embedded dirt in the shower, the floor, and the tiles surrounding the tub. The final step was to reseal and recolor the grout lines with ColorSeal. The couple chose from a wide range of colors and decided to use Antique Ivory for the shower floor, Mist for the shower walls and bench, and Lighthouse for the bathroom floor.
The job was finished and the couple couldn't have been happier with the results. The master bathroom was not only clean, it looked brand new! The team was extremely satisfied as well, as it was another job well-done with happy clients.
Before leaving, our team made sure the homeowners were instructed on how to properly care for their tiles and grout. They recommended using only pH-neutral cleaners that would make the seal last as long as possible. They also recommended that the shower stall and tub enclosures remain well-ventilated to prevent fungi and bacterial growth.
