Damaged Tub Shower Gets Restored by Our Auburn Caulking Services
April 11, 2022
Shower cleaning routines are a pain in the neck for most people. Dealing with tubs is especially a challenge, since cleaning the walls around them can result in a slippery experience. This was the situation a homeowner from Auburn, NC, found herself in. The stains and caulking on the tub's surfaces were so bad, that every shower the owner took was a bad experience for her.
With the mindset of having her shower restored, she went online and looked for Auburn Caulking Services
. She read a blog post from one of our previous clients who had had a similar problem. Convinced we were the right choice for her shower, she filled out the "Request a Quote" form on our website. Her request was immediately processed and our team of professionals went to her place the very next day.
Our experts observed signs of deterioration throughout the shower as soon as they entered the premises. The first thing they noticed was the damaged caulking, but they were also instantly aware of the stains all over the tub. The client's cleaning routine included more than one soap-based product, this was one of the major factors that led to such deterioration. To remove the soap scum and all of the stains on the tub and walls, our team had to employ specialized equipment. To minimize further damage, all shower surfaces had to be sealed. The shower's expansion joints had to be replaced with new caulking. The tiles and grout lines needed some cleaning as well.
After we performed the in-home evaluation, the owner decided to work with us and scheduled a day for the restoration. Our experts began the restoration process on the day of the appointment by cleaning the entire shower. They applied a pH-neutral, soap-free cleaner to remove all of the soap scum and filth, then high-speed scrubbed the surfaces to remove the residue. Our product cleans dirt and stains without leaving any foam behind. After that, our team steam cleaned the shower thoroughly to minimize mold and mildew formation.
The next step was to repair the damage done to the joints and grout, so our experts carefully replaced the old caulk and sealed all of the grout lines. They used our ColorSeal to seal the grout on the walls. Our sealer is the ideal solution for keeping the grout clean for longer because it repels water, filth, soap scum, mold, and mildew. The client chose white to match the lines with the tiles and tub. Finally, we re-caulked the shower joints with our unique epoxy solution. It's resistant to water and other liquids, making shower maintenance way easier.
Every part of the shower was glowing when we called the client to see the results. The client was astonished when she saw the shower. She thanked us for our services after we gave her some advice on how to keep her shower in top condition. We told her that bleach and soap-based cleaners would only make the work harder for her, causing discoloration and making it easy for liquid and dirt to seep into the tiles and grout. We recommended using soap-free, pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
to clean all shower surfaces. Our product removes all the dirt without damaging the surfaces. This means that cleaning spills, pools of water, and other stains becomes easier and faster.
Furthermore, we recommended using a terry cloth or a squeegee to scrub off the dirt since abrasive tools could leave scratch marks on the tiles and grout. Because showers are constantly subjected to moisture, allowing the circulation of fresh air will help keep the surfaces dry and stop the spread of mold and mildew. The client thanked us for our recommendations and promised to tell people about Sir Grout Raleigh.
