See How This Shower Regains Its Natural Shine Thanks to Our Franklin Grout Sealing Specialists
November 25, 2021A homeowner in Franklin was growing more and more restless while trying to get his shower back in top form. Grime had adhered to its surface to the point that each inch of the shower floor looked several shades darker than it should. After years of having beautiful shades of beige, cream, and pearl, the ceramic tiles had taken a dull, brown color that seemed to be impervious to all cleaning solutions.
It wasn't long before he realized that this was a job best left to professionals. The homeowner didn't want his cleaning efforts to make his shower look adequate at best; he wanted to bring back the lustrous look that had drawn his attention before he moved into his house. Sir Grout Nashville proved him right after he hired our Franklin Grout Sealing services to handle the shower's restoration.
Soon after the client started looking for a company around the area, one of his acquaintances brought up Sir Grout Nashville. The client found our website online and started reading about our previous jobs, including some of the praise left by former clients on our testimonials' page. He filled out the "Request a Quote" form on our website to schedule a free in-home evaluation, and our specialists got back to him soon after.
On the day of the inspection, our crew looked closely into the stains covering the client's shower. They saw that soap scum stains had adhered to the tiles and the grout lines, and the latter had no sealant to protect its surface. We told the client that this is a common occurrence because hard surfaces are susceptible to moisture, and there's water constantly sitting all over the shower's tiles, not to mention soap residue and other artificial products. When you add the effects of regular cleaners and homemade solutions, it's no wonder to see hard surfaces deteriorate so suddenly and thoroughly. After identifying the best course of action, we ran the process by our client, and he agreed to hire our restoration services.
A few days later, our crew returned to the client's house to work on the shower. For this, they cleaned the shower's surfaces using a pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. We let it sit on the tiles and grout for a few moments and then scrubbed off all the dirt that was stuck on the surface. This was followed by a steam cleaner that removed all remaining specks of dirt and mold.
It was time to repair the damage on the grout lines. Our crew used Sir Grout's special equipment to regrout the areas where the grout had gone loose and sealed the entire shower surface with ColorSeal. Our exclusive sealant keeps the grout lines clean and spotless through your day-to-day activities. It wards off all sorts of external elements, including water, mold, mildew, and soap scum, making regular maintenance much more practical for homeowners. It's also available in several different colors to ensure that the revamped grout doesn't clash with the shower's layout. Lastly, we applied our highly resistant epoxy grout in all the shower joints to keep outside elements from seeping into the pores.
When our team was done, the grout made a perfect match for the ceramic's renewed color which, in turn, made the tiles look almost brand-new in their vibrancy and shine. The client was thrilled by the result and relieved to see his shower back to its former appearance. He couldn't wait to share the results with his friends and relatives.
Now that our crew was done, they went over some of the recommendations for the maintenance of shower surfaces. First, they stressed the importance of using pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Damp surfaces are a magnet for mold, and fungi, making showers an easy target for stains. Our soap-free cleaner removes dirt, soap scum, grime, and other external elements. Our product is the ideal asset for your regular cleaning routine because it's free of acidic ingredients that could wear down tiles and other hard surfaces. To scrub off the dirt without putting a strain on the tiles and grout, they suggested using clean towels, a squeegee, or a terry cloth rag.
Other ways to stop moisture buildup include keeping good ventilation in all parts of the house. Keeping the surfaces dry will also prevent issues that might affect your bathroom's hygiene and endanger the health of the people in the house.
