Our Experts in Naples, FL Removed All the Stains from This Shower with an Outstanding Grout Cleaning Job
March 13, 2019
When bar soap residue reacts with the minerals in the water and hardens on the surface, it forms ugly stains. Removing these blemishes is challenging and requires much effort. Conventional methods won't be effective and oftentimes produce negative results. However, it is imperative to deal with this problem accordingly because soap scum can combine itself with mold and mildew and thrive in the grout lines, posing a threat for everyone in the house. Professionals like Sir Grout SW Florida can take care of this issue safely and effectively.
Over the years, our next client's shower accumulated a great amount of bar soap residue. As a result, the floor had nasty looking stains. The heavy wear and tear also took a toll on the grout lines. They had acquired a darkish tone and looked dirty. The owner was not pleased with the condition of the surfaces so she tried some DIY cleaning methods. She kept struggling with the maintenance of her shower, but unfortunately, nothing seemed to work. After some consideration, she decided to hire professionals. Thankfully, she found our grout cleaning service in Naples, FL
. With our certified process, we restored her shower and enhanced the appearance of the surfaces.
The owner went online to look for professional assistance. She searched for the best hard surface restoration company in Naples, FL. The top results led her to Sir Grout SW Florida. On our website she went through the picture gallery
and read testimonials from previous satisfied customers. The positive feedback and the outstanding results displayed in the pictures convinced her we had the answer to her problems. She called us and requested a free in-home consultation.
A few days later, we arrived for the evaluation of the shower and to offer the most effective solution for the problem. After greeting the owner, we proceeded with the assessment. We noticed the stains on the floor right away. These were soap scum stains caused due to the heavy use of bar soaps. In addition, the grout lines were damaged and dirty. Upon closer inspection, we found the grout needed sealing. This was necessary because water, dirt, grime, and soap residue can seep into the grout, causing more damage and potentially leading to fungi growth. We also told her that using harsh cleaning products only produces negative effects on the tiles and grout. After finishing the inspection, we concluded that the shower required our professional treatment.
For the restoration, we proposed a grout cleaning service. With this procedure we would remove all the blemishes and bring back the beauty of her shower. We assured the owner the surfaces would be completely restored when we were finished. She was pleased with our assessment and the solution we proposed. She accepted our offer and hired us.
We returned ready to begin the restoration process. This procedure consists of several steps and requires our advanced techniques and professional equipment. First, we made sure the surface was clean. For this task we used our exclusive pH-neutral natural hard surface cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. This top-notch product is soap-free and safe for tiles and grout. Also, it has an enhanced antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. We continued by removing the soap scum stain with a special hard water stain remover. After that, we cleaned the damaged grout and performed the necessary repairs. We painstakingly worked on the entire surface until all the grout lines were fully restored.
Once we fixed the grout, we were ready for the sealing process. We sealed the grout lines with ColorSeal. This exclusive product closes off the absorption of water and protects the surface against dirt, grime, and all other harmful external agents. Thanks to its special properties, excessive scrubbing is not necessary when cleaning the surface, thereby making maintenance easier and faster. Additionally, it comes in a variety of colors, allowing the owner to match the grout with the tiles and enhance the entire surface. We thoroughly performed all the steps and fully restored the shower.
We invited our client to see the amazing results for herself. She was in awe when she saw the improved appearance of her shower. She couldn't believe all the stains were gone. The owner was extremely happy because we were able to solve the problems fast and effectively. She was delighted with our performance and stated that from that point on, Sir Grout SW Florida would be her company of choice for any hard surface restoration she might need in the future. After thanking us, the owner said she would certainly recommend our services to everyone she knows.
As we always do with all our clients, we left the owner some suggestions for safer and more effective maintenance. We recommended setting up a weekly cleaning routine using only pH-neutral soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product doesn't leave residue and won't cause any damage. Furthermore, its antimicrobial agent provides protection against bacteria and fungi. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We do not recommend using soap-based or acidic cleaners. These products contain harsh agents that can deteriorate the tiles. Moreover, these cleaners leave residue that can compromise the integrity of the grout. This can lead to more severe issues and structural problems.
To minimize soap scum accumulation, we recommend replacing bar soap with liquid soap. This alternative won't leave any residue on the tiles and grout. It is important to know that soap scum forms when bar soap foam re-hardens on the surface. Once the residue hardens, it forms ugly, hard to remove stains. Not using these soaps will help prevent the appearance of these issues in the shower. We also advised to keep the bathroom dry and well ventilated. A damp and moist environment is the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. For this reason, we recommend leaving the door ajar or a window open, especially after hot showers. To dry the surface, use a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth. Squeegeeing after every use reduces the accumulation of dirt particles and helps prevent soap scum buildup.
