This Shower Changed Its Appearance Thanks to Our Tile and Grout Cleaners in Fort Myers, FL
February 20, 2018For homeowners, one of the most common problems in their shower is the presence of soap scum. This happens when the greasy ingredients in bar soaps react with the minerals of the water and cling to the surface. If owners neglect this problem for long, it could be too late. As time goes on, removing soap scum from any surface becomes difficult.
Our next customer lives on Fort Myers, FL, and she had soap scum problem in her bathroom. She had a busy daily life because of her job. She was a flight attendant, so she didn't spend too much time at home. Since the homeowner had a few weeks off for vacation, she wanted to divide her time cleaning her house and visiting her family. In the middle of one of her cleaning sessions, she realized the master shower looked dirty and the floor had a white powdery substance all over it. Fortunately, our tile and grout cleaners in Fort Myers, FL, were about to help her with this issue.
A few days before visiting her family, the homeowner decided to do something about the shower. She read about similar problems in showers, saw some pictures, and searched for a few tips online to solve the problem. Using some products she already had at her house, she deep cleaned the shower. She was not happy to see that there were no positive results at all, so she kept trying for days, but the shower's surface was exactly the same: the tiles on the walls and the grout lines were full of dirt. The floor still had the white powder on it.
Since the owner was going to visit her family, she needed to solve the problem before traveling. She was not ready to give up on the shower just yet, and before contacting professionals, she insisted on cleaning the shower by herself. After several tries, she couldn't believe the appearance of the surface had not changed. In fact, she noticed it was dirtier than before. She saw that some grout lines on the floor were getting black. No matter what product or method she used, the outcome was no different. The homeowner decided to look for a high-quality and reliable company to restore her master shower.
She asked her closest friends if they knew a company that could fix the problem. A friend told her that he'd hired Sir Grout SW Florida to perform a grout cleaning service and he assured her the results achieved were amazing. The next day, the homeowner looked online for our company, finding us at the top search results. After seeing photos from the "Before and After" section, she was convinced we were all she was looking for, so she filled out the "Request a Quote" form on the website to schedule a free and in-home consultation.
On the day of the assessment, our team of professionals arrived at the client's house. She led them in to evaluate the shower. Our experts saw obvious signs of deterioration. They explained to the owner that as a consequence of not having proper maintenance and using harsh products and methods, the tiles were dull, the grout lines were dirty, and the floor was full of soap scum. Our tile and grout cleaners told her they needed to perform a deep grout cleaning to remove all the grime from the surface, then they would have to seal the grout to prevent future damage. She agreed right away and set up a date to do the job.
On the day of the job, our tile and grout cleaners returned to the customer's home to perform the restoration service. Our team of professionals began the process by combining proper cleaners and a high-speed, gentle scrubber to remove the dirt and grime from the surface, then the experts used vapor steam cleaning to eliminate the grime from the hard-to-reach areas. After this, the shower was ready for us to begin the next step of the process.
When it was time to seal the grout lines, our technicians applied Sir Grout's proprietary sealant—Epoxy ColorSeal. They explained that this product was especially designed for areas like showers because it's extra tough and has two principal functions: it makes the grout lines resistant to water, stain, mold, and mildew. In addition, ColorSeal comes in a variety of colors for the homeowners match their grout lines with the tiles.
After our team finished, they let the woman in to take a look at the result. She was amazed by the appearance of her shower, it was totally renovated. She couldn't believe it looked brand-new. She thanked our experts for the incredible service and told them she would recommend their work to anyone who needed a hard surface restoration.
Before leaving, our team gave the client some recommendations to keep the shower looking beautiful. First, they told her to apply regular and proper maintenance, using pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners to avoid damaging the surface. They also told her it is very important to keep the shower as dry as possible, so they suggested she remove excess water with a damp cloth after every use of the shower.
