Our Unique Hard Surface Restoration Services Transform a Shower Floor in Nashville
January 10, 2023A homeowner in Nashville, TN, was dealing with multiple issues affecting the floor of his master shower. The black grout lines were the first thing that caught his attention, leading him to add more products to his weekly cleaning sessions. In between all those hours of scrubbing, the homeowner noticed cracks spreading all over the grout, with gaps that fractured the grout lines all over the floor. The last straw came with a few loose tiles around the drain which only increased the risk of accidents. This led to the homeowner to look for a specialist as soon as possible.
He found Sir Grout Nashville online and our website gave him detailed information about our hard surface restoration services in Nashville. He was also encouraged by the results in our picture gallery and contacted our crew to ask about our in-home evaluations. A few days later, our specialists were at his place inspecting the shower floor.
During the evaluation, our techs assessed the floor's condition, from the loose tiles to the old grout. They also asked about the cleaning products used on the floor and discovered that the surface had been subjected to various chemical and acidic formulas. Sadly, some of the most common cleaners you'll find at the local store can accelerate the deterioration of tile and grout. These products keep dirt trapped in the grout pores, causing discoloration on the surface, and even cracking the grout after regular use. Our specialists explained that regrouting the floor around the loose tiles was the best long-term solution. The full restoration would also include a thorough cleaning and sealing service. After listening to our assessment, the homeowner scheduled a new appointment with our crew.
Later that week, our specialists returned to the client's house with all the necessary equipment for the job. First, they soaked the floor with a pH-neutral cleaner and carefully removed the loose dirt. Nothing gets close to the effectiveness that you get with our product. In less time, it removes the most stubborn stains without leaving a mark. There's also no risk of surface damage because our cleaner's formula is free of harsh ingredients. Our specialists made their way through the whole shower area, paying special attention to the mold on the grout lines until the whole floor was ready for the next stage of the restoration.
At this point, it was time to repair the damaged grout. Our techs put away the loose tiles and detached the damaged caulk from the grout lines and the floor joints. Then, they installed a resistant epoxy grout when needed, particularly around the loose tiles to fix them in place. To protect the rest of the grout lines, our techs applied a coat of our signature ColorSeal. This powerful sealant provides the best protection to keep the grout clean and simplify surface maintenance. It helps inhibit the growth of mold and mildew while warding off external elements and liquids. With our sealant in place, the client's floor finally regained the polished look it always meant to have.
With the restoration complete, our specialists evaluated the results of their work and called the client back into the bathroom. The new grout left the beauty of the floor on full display, and the clean tiles now added a new touch. The different shades of gray made the shower look more elegant and welcoming, and the client praised our specialists for making such a change possible.
The client was eager to learn more cleaning pointers, so our techs listed the best recommendations. They told the client that acidic formulas and other generic cleaners should be replaced with pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. A pH-neutral formula eliminates the risks of discoloration from exposure to harsh ingredients. Our product is also more effective than most options in the market, removing all common stains and helping preserve the beauty of a hard surface through the years. Our techs also recommended wiping off any pools of water left on the floor after using the shower, including the soap scum that gets gradually stuck to the tiles. The safest way to do this is by using non-abrasive tools like a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee; this way, homeowners don't risk scratches on the tiles while scrubbing off the dirt. Lastly, our specialists reminded the client to open the windows and doors a few hours a day to help the room's ventilation. The client gratefully took note of all their recommendations and promised to tell more people about our surface restoration services.
