A homeowner in Fort Myers was tired of fighting the same stains on her shower stall. The ceramic shower always demanded a lot of her time, but all her efforts fell short when dealing with the embedded dirt on the seams and corner joints. When the stains started spreading to the grout on the floor, the homeowner knew that there was no time to waste, so she contacted our tile and grout cleaners in Fort Myers.

Shower Stall Before and After a Service from Our Tile and Grout Cleaners in Fort Myers
One of her neighbors had told her about Sir Grout SW Florida a few days earlier, and the homeowner wanted to learn more before making a decision. As expected, all her reservations went away after she got to see our website's content, and the homeowner didn't want to spend another week with a soiled shower so she filled out the form in our online scheduler to request an in-home evaluation.

At her convenience, our specialists visited her house the very next day to look at the shower. They inspected the entire shower stall, looking closely at the yellow seams and all the traces of efflorescence on the tiles. Sadly, the grout's color indicated that the sealant had faded from the surface, likely from a combination of hard water and chemical-based cleaners. The homeowner also confirmed that she had tried using vinegar on parts of the grout when regular cleaners did nothing to remove the embedded dirt. This exposed the porous surface to acidic imbalances and prompted the deterioration of parts of the grout.

Our techs completed their evaluation and described their restoration method for the client. They needed to deep clean the shower to remove all external elements before the repairs. While most of the grout could be restored with acrylic-based sealant, the horizontal seams needed to be regrouted with water-resistant epoxy grout. Every step is essential to ensure that the result withstands months of activity, so our techs offered to conduct the full process later that week. The client agreed with their assessment and scheduled a new appointment for the restoration.

On the agreed-upon date, our techs returned to her house with all the necessary equipment. After preparing the shower area, they began cleaning the walls and the floor, paying special attention to the thickest stains on the grout. They scrubbed off the dirt with the help of a surface-safe cleaner and vapor cleaned the stall to fully eliminate all traces of mold.

Then, they carefully removed the loose caulk from the corner joints and regrouted the seams with a durable epoxy solution. This way, the surface would not absorb all the shower liquids, preventing cracks, discoloration, and other types of grout damage. When it was time to restore the grout lines on the wall, our techs applied our special ColorSeal. They recolored the grout to match the color of the tiles while enhancing its protection against mold, mildew, soap scum, and more.

The shower looked gorgeous and its pristine white color was a sight to behold. After taking her time admiring the results, the homeowner thanked our experts and promised to recommend our services to more people in Fort Myers.

Here are the main cleaning tips that our techs shared with the client: First, they recommended replacing traditional solutions with pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is the most effective way to keep up with the constant stains caused by soap scum and hard water. It removes all the dirt in minutes without affecting the sealant's protection on the grout, so you can expect better results in less time. Likewise, you won't get your house contaminated by toxic fumes each time you need to clean your hard surfaces, so your cleaning routine can improve in more ways than one.

The homeowner also wanted to know how to avoid scratch marks on the ceramic tiles, so your experts recommended using only non-abrasive tools like a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee. This method also provides more precision than what you'd get while using a steel wool, so it's the best way to remove stains from harder-to-reach surfaces. Our last recommendation was to open the bathroom doors and the windows nearby from time to time. Shower surfaces are easily affected by moisture, so ensuring a dry environment is the surest way to prevent issues like stickiness, mold, and mildew.

Don't settle for moldy seams and discolored walls. Sir Grout SW Florida has the solution to make your shower look better than ever.
