This Homeowner's Shower in Naples, FL Regained Its Former Charm After a Grout Cleaning
September 01, 2016This young professional had recently moved to a very comfortable apartment with three bedrooms and a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. She was a water lover, so she looked for a place near the beach in the so-called crown jewel of Southwest Florida – Naples. However, the maintenance of the apartment was a little expensive. Therefore, she decided to rent one of the bedrooms, but the homeowner wanted to make sure that everything was in perfect condition before leasing the bedroom to anyone.
The customer noticed that the shower floor in the bedroom for rent was a little aged, with dingy and stained grout lines. So, she decided to have it restored. She didn't know where to look for such services. Therefore, she asked one of her friends on Facebook who fortunately tagged her in a Sir Grout SW Florida post, saying that he highly recommended our grout cleaning services in Naples. The homeowner promptly visited our website and saw the testimonials, which convinced her to schedule a free in-home quote.
Our team of experts arrived at the apartment at the agreed time and date. The homeowner then guided them to the shower, where the specialists would assess the floor. They noticed that the grout lines were severely stained and grimy and told the homeowner that cleaning it was imperative to regain its former neat appearance. They also said they would seal the grout lines after cleaning the shower to preserve them.
Grout is a highly porous material. This porosity might translate into major problems since it lets water and grime permeate the grout. Moisture can damage the grout lines and tiles, resulting in cracks, mold, and mildew. This is why grout must be sealed right after installation. Sealing it creates a shield against moisture and grime permeation, preserving the longevity of the grout lines and, consequently, the longevity of the tile surface.
The experts came in ready for the meticulous job they had ahead. First, they deeply cleaned the surface with a combination of pH-neutral products and a state-of-the-art scrubber that removed nearly all the dirt from the tiles and grout lines. The professionals also used vapor steam to remove embedded dirt. After thoroughly cleaning the floor, the grime and stains were all gone. However, the appearance of the floor was not totally revived yet. To accomplish that final appearance, the homeowner wanted, the experts applied an off-white shade of Epoxy ColorSeal, giving the grout lines a uniform color that beautifully matched the tiles.
Epoxy ColorSeal is our cutting-edge grout sealer. It is specially designed to resist frequent water exposure and use, which makes it ideal for shower floors. Since it contains epoxy resins, it lasts much longer than any other sealer, keeping your grout in the best condition possible. After applying Epoxy ColorSeal, grout lines look like new again, and the seal may last as long as the grout itself if properly maintained. It is the perfect shield for grout, making it water-, grime-, mold-, and mildew-resistant.
When our team of well-trained professionals finished the carefully performed service, the floor had completely changed its appearance. The brownish grout lines had turned into impeccable ones. They let the homeowner in to show her the results. She was amazed! She expressed how pleased and surprised she was, noticing that the grout lines looked like new again. She said it looked like it had just been installed and that she was ready to lease the bedroom! She thanked the team with a handshake.
