Find Out How Our Grout Cleaning Revamped a Shower in Nashville
August 19, 2023A homeowner in Nashville, TN, was discouraged after trying to get the dirt off her shower. Layers of grime and mold stood out glaringly against the light-colored tiles, making the shower look shabby and increasing the client's discomfort each time she tried to clean the grout. When weeks went by with no improvement, the homeowner decided to get assistance from a Nashville grout cleaning service.
After making up her mind about this new plan, she asked for recommendations from her friends and neighbors. While some of them had no frame of reference to help her, the ones who did immediately told her to trust Sir Grout Nashville. They all agreed that nothing could match the results of our cleaning methods, and their confidence encouraged the homeowner. She went online looking for our contact information and was pleasantly impressed by the wealth of information available on our website. Our specialists got back to her soon after she clicked on the "Schedule a Free Quote" button, and the homeowner welcomed our crew into her home only a few days later.
During the initial evaluation of the shower, our techs noticed the amount of dirt gathering on the shower joints and the floor's grout. Soap scum had also dulled down the tile's color, so it was no wonder that constant cleaning sessions were not enough to improve the shower's look. Our techs asked the homeowner about her previous cleaning efforts, and she confirmed that she'd used multiple chemical cleaners over the past few weeks, many of which hadn't been part of her original cleaning routine.
As our specialists explained, soap-based cleaners create a foamy film that only gets the dirt more attached to the grout's porous surface. Moreover, the chemicals in these products can eventually cause discoloration on ceramic tiles. Our techs also found some signs of deterioration on the shower seams, so they recommended regrouting the affected areas and sealing the grout lines on the walls. They went over Sir Grout's restoration process with the client, and by the end of the explanation, she knew that our services were just what she needed to revive her shower.
At the homeowner's request, our specialists returned to her house a few days later for the restoration. They began by cleaning the floor and walls with a pH-neutral cleaner, removing all the dirt once the product had enough time to sit on all shower surfaces. This high-quality cleaner removes the dirt that's embedded in the tiles and even works against the mold and mildew that usually accumulate on the grout lines. Our techs eliminated all the stains before steam cleaning the shower area.
Following this, they made the necessary repairs to the old caulk. They fixed the damage on the shower joints and installed a durable epoxy grout to enhance their protection. Now, all they had to do was seal all the grout lines with Sir Grout's flagship ColorSeal. This sealant keeps all high-traffic surfaces protected against dirt and stains.
The restoration was complete and the shower looked stunning from all sides. The client was amazed when our crew showed her the results and she praised our services while gushing over the shower's beauty.
At the end of the appointment, our techs shared some useful cleaning pointers with the client. To remove the damage caused by harsh ingredients on hard surfaces, we recommend using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product provides more thorough results than most traditional cleaners and makes routine maintenance safer for homeowners. It doesn't cause discoloration on hard surfaces or release toxic fumes into the air, so you can expect excellent results without having to worry about health problems. When the client asked about the best way to prevent moisture buildup, our techs recommended opening the windows and doors to help the room's ventilation. They also warned her about the potential consequences of leaving water and other liquids sitting on the shower floor for too long. Lastly, our techs told the client not to use steel wools and other abrasive tools that could ultimately scratch the ceramic without properly removing the dirt. As an alternative, they recommended using a clean towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to wipe out the soap scum that often spreads all over the shower walls and floors. The client was grateful for the advice and promised to recommend our services far and wide.
