Tile Cleaning Service Prevents Costly Repairs to This Naples, Florida Homeowner's Stained Shower
May 16, 2016A great bathroom is the first thing homeowners usually look for when buying or moving into a new house is. This was exactly what our customer looked for before moving into her current home. Why? Because there is nothing better than a refreshing shower to start your daily routine. Unfortunately, upon taking her daily showers, she realized that her pristine white tiles had yellowish stains. Since she couldn't stand to look at her stained tiles any longer, she decided to clean them. After hours of scrubbing, the results were more than disappointing. It seemed like the cleaning agents she used only made the problem worse, and she was worried that the tiles would need to be completely restored. Since she didn't want to give up on her beloved shower, she decided to go online and search for a Naples tile cleaning service that could bring back the immaculate appearance of her shower tiles.
It's hard to go wrong with tiles, – homeowners prefer them because of the nice touch they give to bathrooms and kitchens. However, tiles aren't immune to dirt and grime, which build up over time, turning them into an ideal environment for bacteria, especially in areas such as bathrooms where germs are most common. Therefore, it's highly important to keep your tiles spotless. Unfortunately, regular cleaners are inefficient, and while regular mopping helps, sometimes a professional deep cleaning is necessary to remove persistent dirt. Foot traffic and, dirt build up, as well as improper cleaning methods and products, can make even the most expensive and beautiful tiles look dull and discolored. Our customer needed a quick solution that could spruce up her shower tiles.
Upon inspecting the shower, the Sir Grout specialists instantly saw the discolored tiles, but it was a task that our tile cleaning experts were ready to tackle. To start the job, the team applied neutral cleaner to the tiles. Then, they used a vapor steam cleaning process that is highly effective for extracting grime and dirt from the surface. To make the tiles look even better, our team decided to recolor and seal the grout lines with ColorSeal. The homeowner was shown a wide array of colors that could match her tiles, and she decided to go with the color Mist. This final touch made the shower look like new!
In just a few hours, our team was able to completely restore the shower's clean and pristine appearance. The deep cleaning process removed years of soap-scum and dirt build up that was affecting the tile's color. Our customer was astonished by the sparkling tiles and thanked our team, who was happy to have helped.
When cleaning your tile surfaces, we recommend that you steer clear of soap-based cleaners, which leave a film, darken the surface, and promote fungi. Instead, apply a neutral or soap-less cleaner to your tile and let it soak for about 5 minutes, but remember to dry the surface with a terry cloth to remove the dirty water. If you let it dry, the residue will settle into the grout lines and discolor them. If you keep these helpful tips in mind, your tile surfaces will remain as clean as possible.
