Our Caulking Services Restore All the Appeal of This Shower in Naples
June 12, 2022A homeowner in East Naples despaired over the appearance of his shower. As the shower's sealant started to wear off, it became harder to keep up with the stains that the grout collected every day. He'd gone to great lengths in his efforts to preserve his shower's original look, but in the end, nothing seemed to keep the dirt off the grout lines. Luckily, the homeowner didn't wait long to hire the best Caulking Services in Naples.
He found Sir Grout SW Florida on his first Google search after trying multiple cleaning products and tips. By this point, he simply hoped to stop the accumulation of stains on his shower surfaces and didn't know if it would be possible to clean the grout without leaving any marks behind. Once he looked through our picture gallery, the homeowner filled out the "Request a Quote" form on our website and asked for an in-home evaluation.
A few days later, our techs visited the client's home for an inspection. They checked all parts of the bathroom, taking note of the stained grout and the damage on the horizontal joints. When the client asked about the cause of the problem, our specialists explained that traditional cleaners have many chemical compounds that trap the dirt on the surface. These cleaners also wear off the sealant, so the grout is stripped of its protection against liquids, mold, and mildew. The best course of action was to clean the shower with Sir Grout's unique equipment, restore the damaged grout, and seal the surfaces to prevent further damage. The client was on board with the plan and scheduled a new appointment with our techs.
Our specialist came back that same week to work on the shower. For the first step, they applied a pH-neutral cleaner on all shower surfaces and scrubbed the loose dirt with a high-speed scrubber. Our signature cleaning formula easily removes soap scum, mold, and mildew without opening the pores or causing discoloration. It's the best way to stop the accumulation of dirt before it even becomes noticeable. Our techs also steam cleaned the shower to enhance the protection on harder-to-reach surfaces before moving on to the next step.
Then, they worked through all the areas where the grout had been damaged, particularly on the shower joints and on the floor. They removed the old caulk and installed a resistant epoxy grout to leave the grout lines looking as good as new.
To seal the rest of the grout, our specialists applied a coat of Sir Grout's ColorSeal. Our sealant is the best way to preserve the grout's beauty because it effectively stops external elements and substances from seeping into the grout pores. All the grout lines were recolored in white to go with the tiles' light shades, making the shower look clean.
When we invited the client back into the room, he was in awe. He thanked our specialists for making his shower look almost brand new, marveling over its shine and the grout's spotless appearance. He also promised to recommend our caulking and restoration services to his friends and family living in the area.
Our specialists shared a few cleaning tips with the client before leaving his apartment. As they explained, pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are the safest and more effective way to keep the mold and mildew of a shower's hard surfaces. Without damaging the grout or releasing toxic fumes into the air, our product removes all the stains and the stickiness caused by soap scum with minimal scrubbing. It also helps preserve the sealant's protection for a long time. Our techs also gave the client a few tips to keep his shower dry since bathroom surfaces are especially vulnerable to moisture buildup. They recommended opening the windows and doors from time to time to help the circulation of fresh air and drying the floors and walls with a towel or a squeegee. Steel wools and similar tools tend to scratch the tiles, so it's best not to use them on hard surfaces.
