Our Techs Make This Shower Look Stunning With the Best Raleigh Grout Sealing Service
June 15, 2023This couple in North Carolina was doing everything they could to remove the dirt that their shower's grout had collected in the past few months. They'd bought a new house less than a year before, and they'd been amazed by the size and splendor of their master shower. With gorgeous ceramic tiles on all its sides, it was larger than any shower they'd owned in the past, so they dedicated part of their regular schedule to maintain all its surfaces in perfect condition to avoid repair expenses in the near future.
Their best efforts and cleaning products they were familiar with couldn't fight the mold and mildew on the shower. There were stains all over the grout lines, and the tiles looked neglected and discolored. The couple decided to hire a professional restoration service before letting the situation get out of hand. They went online and found Sir Grout Raleigh early on in their search. After reading about our previous jobs and perusing our picture gallery, they were sure they had found the best Raleigh Grout Sealing service for their shower. They gave us a call and asked us to stop by to assess their master shower.
On the appointed date, we made our way to the clients' house to begin the evaluation. Once there, we took our time inspecting the stains on the grout, checking for any structural damage. The grout had a very unappealing look, and the tiles had grown discolored, but there was no need for intense repairs. The problem had even extended to the shower's ceiling, where stains were particularly difficult to conceal. We explained to the clients that most generic cleaning products have acidic properties that put a toll on hard surfaces after repeated use. When you add all the shower water and product residue, it takes little time for the grout pores to start absorbing the moisture, especially when there's no sealant in place. The best course of action was sealing the grout to keep external elements from covering its surface after a thorough cleaning process with Sir Grout's specialized equipment. The clients were satisfied with the explanation and hired our restoration services.
Our specialists were back a few days later and set out to clean the shower right away. For this, they soaked all the shower's surfaces with a pH-neutral cleaner, letting it sit for a few minutes until the dirt started to loosen up. Because there are no acidic ingredients in its formula, our product is safe to use on all sorts of hard surfaces. In fact, it combines quality ingredients that actively help inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms while making cleaning simpler and more effective. Following this step, our techs removed the grime, soap scum and efflorescence with a high-speed scrubber and steam cleaned the tiles to sanitize harder-to-reach areas on the walls and the ceiling.
After regrouting the spots in which the grout had grown loose, our techs began applying a coat of ColorSeal on all the grout lines. This acrylic-based sealant protects the grout's pores against all external elements, including dirt, grime, mold, mildew, water, and even UV rays. It also comes in different colors for people to ensure the best look according to their shower's layout. They cleaned up the residue and installed our resistant epoxy grout on all the shower joints. This, along with the sealant they placed on the tiles, increased the shower's protection against water and mold, resulting in fewer stains in the long run. By the end of the process, the grout lines brought out all the tiles' contrasting angles and enhanced the shower's clean look.
When we called the clients back, the sheer beauty of the newly restored shower took their breath away. The tiles had regained that shine that made their coloring so unique in the first place, and the grout looked good as new, with no marks or stains in sight. The couple immediately asked for suggestions to preserve this beautiful look, so we gave them some useful recommendations.
To start, we suggested using pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our soap-free cleaner is the most effective solution to counter the effects of humidity in a shower, including fungi, mold, and mildew. It's also a safer choice to preserve your surfaces and protect the people around you because it leaves no chemical residues each time you use it. On top of withstanding moisture buildup, ceramic surfaces are also susceptible to scratches, so we recommend using a clean towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to scrub off any residue. Before leaving the couple's home, we also suggested keeping the windows open a few hours every day to keep the bathroom dry and stall the growth of mold. We left the house with the clients' gratitude and the satisfaction of another job well done.
