Learn How Our Tile and Grout Cleaners Revived the Beauty of this Dulled Master Shower in Naples, Florida
February 13, 2017Imagine you have invested your time and dedication into designing the shower of your dreams and one day you finally came up with the money to build it. A homeowner from the southwestern Florida city of Naples had managed to do just that, and she was mighty proud of it. This master shower had become special to her, and as such, it was disheartening to think that its best days were behind it. The tiles were stained by a thick layer of soap scum, and mold and mildew were rapidly growing in the darkened grout lines. She had tried every DIY method out there to clean it, but this grime was as tough as they come.
It was clear she needed help, so she sat at her computer and started googling professional Naples tile and grout cleaners, hoping someone could help her restore her favorite spot in her home. After sorting through many candidates, she decided on Sir Grout of SW Florida because of the slew of positive customer feedback. She filled out a form and scheduled a free, in-home evaluation with our tile and grout specialists.
The day of the inspection, our specialists arrived at our customer's residence to assess her problem, which were mainly two: stained grout and mold. Grout is a very porous substance, and when it is not sealed correctly it can absorb dirty water, soap, and other liquids that can change its original color. Mold, on the other hand, is a type of fungi that tends to grow on moist surfaces and can pose a health risk if not dealt with. Our specialist suggested our flagship tile and grout cleaning service, to deal with both problems immediately and restore the shower back to its usual beauty, which our client accepted.
A few days later, our experts arrived at our client's house, ready to work. They started by applying our proprietary soap-less, non-toxic tile and grout cleaner to all surfaces, scrubbing with a high-speed but gentle brush. To kill mold and also get rid of the most resilient dirt, they used a steam cleaner. Once the cleaning process was done, our experts proceeded to apply our proprietary ColorSeal, which is a water-based sealant that not only helps recoloring grout, but it also makes it stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant. ColorSeal comes in a wide variety of hues and our client chose an elegant Champagne color for her floors. The finishing touch came from sealing all expansion joints in the shower with our Stainmaster Epoxy grout, which helps to prevent future water damage.
Once the job was completed, our team of professionals showcased the results to our client. She was taken back. Holding a hand to her chest, she told us it looked as good as the day it was installed and profusely thanked our team for their efforts.
Before leaving, our team told her that every once in a while, professional maintenance will be necessary to keep the shower's luster, but that there are little things she can do to extend the time between sessions. Using a soap-less cleanser, for example, is better than using soap since the latter leaves a sticky residue that attracts dirt. Drying the shower after usage prevents growth mold. Changing mop water regularly and drying the floor with a terrycloth helps to prevent stains. She gratefully took the advice and said she would call us back when she needed another professional maintenance job.
